Alright Bees–I’m in need of assistance in picking out my BM’s shoes–I’m torn between the:
“sensable, I can wear these again, comfortable/formal 2.5 inch heel”
“totally fun, glammed & glitzy, still comfortable 3.5 inch heel!”
The height is not of importance when it comes to how the BMs will look standing next to the GM–the guys are (mostly) skyscrapers….
The Prices are very close, so that doesn’t help…
I already asked them and they all like them both but when asked to vote, it was a 50-50 tie!
If you ask me, I like the formal look to option A, (and knowing that these can be easily worn again) but the strappy look of option B will SO go with the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and the glitter is so me!
So I’m leaving it up to you!!!
To help, here is a picture of the Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress (Same color) :

Option B is very pretty and I would totally wear those again!

If they truly don’t care, I would go with B, they are super cute!

I say A to continue with the ruching sort of style going on with the dress.

The fabric on option A looks very similar to the dress so I voted that route. They seem more formal to me as well. But both are beautiful choices!

I voted for B since they seem more fun and I’d be more likely to wear those again. Option A is a little dowdy to me.

Definitely option B.
It changes up the texture a bit!
A is too much satin with the dress and all!

I prefer Option B. I’d wear those with lots of things!

They’re both cute. i’d go with whatever is most comfortable for them. It doesn’t make sense to have pretty shoes that are painful or don’t fit at all. I know I definitely can’t wear either of those styles due to how my feet are shaped. Each girl needs to try them both on before you buy (and be open to other styles). Is it possible to mix and match, but stay with the same color scheme? Honestly, only you will care that they match or not, and no one will pay that much attention to them.

@Ember78: The problem is that, they are both comfortable! I brought my Maid/Matron of Honor along to try them on and we both agreed they were easy to wear.
I’m loving everyone’s feedback! Still not 100% sold either way–but thanks for all your help!

The knotted style of the first ones compliment the dresses really well
But maybe I’m biased cause I don’t like super strappy shoes

I like option B – I think they’re really cute, and I could see myself wearing those again (no, seriously, I really could!) 😛 Option A just has that prom/special occasion look about them, and I agree with a PP that it seems like too much satin with the dress.

Option A has the same knotted style as the dress, and i think they would look great.

Taking the girls to see them, try them on and order tonight! I’m dying to see the turnout! How can such a small detail like shoes be such a big decision?!
LOVE ME SOME SHOES! 😉

I prefer B! I think it has a more modern, look to it. Option A, just looks too “homecoming/prom to me with the ankle strap and heel.
Now, if it were me, I would go with something like this. I love the look that all the celebrities do when they wear a shorter dress with a pump like this. Plus I love the look of gold with the eggplant (that’s what a couple of my BM’s wore with their eggplant dresses). I know you didn’t ask for suggestions, but thought I’d throw in my 2 cents anyway.
