I would love some advice on bridesmaids’ shoes. This is the dress my girls are wearing: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Style-Satin-Wide-Strap-Tea-Length-Dress-F14556_Bridal-Party-Bridesmaids-Short-Bridesmaid-Dresses
In the clover green. They all look great in it, but now they’re asking what shoes to wear with it. I don’t want to put them all in the same shoe, since I’m putting them all in the same dress. My colors are that clover green, pale pink, and white/cream (haven’t completely decided on that yet). The guys are wearing the same clover green for their vests and ties. The flowers are going to be white/cream and pale pink.
I’m letting them choose whatever shoe they want, but I’m stumped on color, and a novice at shoes. My wedding dress is ivory, lace over satin. I was thinking a nude shoe, but any other advice would be greatly appreciated!

All of your wedding colours would go with clover green dresses I think. How about you let your girls pick their own shoes, as long as they are clover green, pale pink or cream? I agree with you about nude shoes, those would be great too. But since you’re putting them in the same dress, I think it would be fun if they worse mismatched shoes.

Nude would be lovely. Other colors that go with green that work for that time of year are copper/bronze, rose gold, gun metal grey, cream or brown leather. Gold and silver could work too although they can be a bit blingy.
I was Maid/Matron of Honor for my sister’s wedding and we wore emerald green so a bit darker than yours’ but I wore bronze shoes with a lot of bling (I love shoes.)

@reevea2: What color are the men’s suits?
As a pp has said, nude would work well, also pewter, copper, bronze, silver or gold (depending on the timing and formality of the wedding).
If you do choose nude, make sure to give each girl a paint swatch in the color of nude that you want. “Nude” can have many different undertones including pink, grey, brown, yellow etc.

If ALL the girls are in the same dress in the same color, then you would need to differentiate the Maid of Honor from the rest, correct? I suggest Maid/Matron of Honor to have slightly different flowers with different shoes from the rest. I do not like any shoes with this dress that is silvery or gold or pewter or anything like that with your color scheme.
My first choice would be an opalescent ivory colored shoe. Not the dull kind of ivory you wear to the office, but the glowing kind (but not cheap shiny).
