britty:  I would take a cue from the pic on David’s website. The model is wearing  a neutral shoe. It makes her legs look longer as the shoe virtually disappears.

Wedges would be a good idea for cobblestones, or a chunkier heel like a cone heel. If you stay away from wedges with cork or raffia sides, you can still find a dressy look.

This is NOT a shoe I would recommend, just an example of a chunkier heel that would work.

I would also recommend a nude or neutral wedge, especially considering the cobblestone. There’s plenty of different styles that won’t look casual or frumpy.

britty:  Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I guess it depends on “the look” you are going for. If you want to do wedges for the benefit of easy walking for your ladies then go ahead they make some really cute dressy wedges like this… (I choose these because of the lace…)

As for the Color, White (if you did a lacey style) otherwise I would do nude. I have seen this done at a friends wedding and it looked great! Or if you did a gold/bronze it would look great too!

You could choose a color and have them pick whatever style they want and warn them that there is cobble stone. this is what I did, I did yellow shoes with Royal blue dresses, one girl got flats, one did heels and the other 3 did wedges (becasue it will be outside).

If you did want to do heels you could always gift them with SoleMates to help with the cobble stone…They really do help with the walking bit and not too noticeable:

britty:  I’d probably do nude shoes and let them pick the style that suited them best. I do not like flats in dresses so I would rather wear a heel and risk breaking my neck vice wearing the dreaded flat shoes.

Tom’s has some really cute wedges. They are super affordable and you know your money is going to a great cause. They look amazing in photographs! Here are some burlap ones-

(They could also do mismatched Tom’s wedges) 🙂

I think a nude pump would look great, but it could also be fun to add a splash of color with something like this:

I also think a color like peach is a great compliment to navy blue too!

Hey there date twin 🙂 Are you planning to pick a particular shoe they all have to wear or just giving them guidelines to follow? It seems like in pictures wedges vs a chunky heel or whatever is going to look pretty similar anyway. I agree a neutral colour is probably best, so maybe you could just tell them to wear a nude/silver/whatever you prefer high heeled open toe shoe and let them decide if they’d rather be more comfortable in a wedge or want to risk the stillettos?
