Now that my bridesmaids all have their dresses (which are exactly alike), they have been asking me about their shoes. I want them to wear whatever they feel most comfortable in. I’ve been telling them they can wear whatever color, heel height and style they want, just so long as it doesn’t clash with their dress. Am I alone in this? Is it strange to have five girls in the same dress but with different shoes?

My girls will be wearing the same dress but everything else is up to them. I just keep reminding them that it’s going to be outside and skipping stilletos would be a good idea.

I didn’t vote because my scenario is this – dresses will be same color and length but they’ll get to pick what kind of top since not everyone can wear strapless. As far as shoes go, same color but whatever style they want. Hair and jewelry – whatever they want (although I’m going to suggest they go minimal with their jewelry). I think I’m going to give them cute clutch bags as their Bridesmaid or Best Man gift so their purses will match.

None of the options really sit our scenario. When we all went Bridesmaid or Best Man dress shopping, I picked out some styles that I preferred but in general, told on my girls to get what they wanted. They all ended up picking the same dress anyway, but my Maid/Matron of Honor (my sister) chose the dress in a different color to stand out, and the other two girls will be in plum, our wedding color. I also told them to do whatever with their shoes, and gave them the option of doing their hair/make-up themselves or professionally since I couldn’t afford to pay for it.

They’re wearing the same dresses (their choice) but not the same shoes, jewelry, etc.

My response doesn’t fit on the poll. My girls wore the same shoes and dress, but they all had different hairstyles and different jewelry.

I have 4 girls. I wanted them each to wear a different dress–same color, but two ended up liking the same dress. I have two MOH’s (one’s a matron)–so a bridesmaid and a Maid/Matron of Honor are wearing a halter style dress and another bridesmaid and Maid/Matron of Honor are wearing a different style. To distinguish the MOH’s from the other girls, the MOH’s will be wearing an underskirt that is the same color as the sashes they are wearing.
I told them any shoes they want (they all agreed on wearing silver shoes), I’m getting them their jewelry and clutches.

My Bridesmaid or Best Man all want to wear the same dress. Which I haven’t chosen yet. My Maid/Matron of Honor is about 104 lbs like me, and my little sister is about 400 lbs. So, I have to find something that works for all of them. Tough. I want them to wear the dress and then whatever accessories they want.

My BMs are each wearing their own outfits. I’d rather have them spend the money on something that they will actually wear again. I have spent so much money on bridesmaid dresses that will never be used again, hopefully at least one of them will wear thier dress again.
In fact, one of my BMs has a dress that should fit me and is so cute! If she doesn’t wear it, I’m taking it.

Honestly, unless one girl wears Ugg boots and another wears Jimmy Choos, I don’t think it will be all that noticable that they have the same dresses, but different shoes. My Bridesmaid or Best Man all had different everything–dresses (black dresses from JCrew), shoes, hair, jewlery–and it still looked cohesive and put together.

I let them choose their own dress styles within the color and material I wanted. They just happened to like the same style, with the exception of my Maid/Matron of Honor, but that works out well. Shoes and jewelry are up to them…my only request was no open-toed shoes. I hate feet in formal pictures!

My ladies have the same dress but I told them to wear whatever black heels they wanted. Why ask them to go buy a pair of shoes when almost every woman has a pair of black heels? Plus their personalities will get to show through more. 😉

My Bridesmaids wore the same dresses, and had a few other similarities. Their hair was pretty much the same (half up with matching pins, but one curled her hers b/c it looked better b/c it was so long), and 2 of the girls wore the same jewelry and the Maid/Matron of Honor wore similar colors but slightly different (gifts from me). I chose a shoe color and had them wear whatever style they wanted (2 wore shoes they already had and one bought new ones).

well I have 4 girls and I have 2 different types of dresses. They will be wearing the same jewelery but I think all their hair and makeup will be different and shoes.
