help!! I need to decide on my shoes for my wedding…for the bridesmaids…my dresses are long and the color is berry…should i have my girls wear open toed black heels, so they can wear them again….or do dyables? They’re wearing pearls, so silver shoes are out!!
Some say dyables and some say open toed…i need to decide, so they can get fitted!!
I thought of open toed black bc you’ll prob. not even see the shoes…since the dresses are long?

Go with black open toe. Honestly, if the shoes won’t even show it shouldn’t matter and I’m sure your bridesmaids would be thankful to not have berry shoes taking up room in the closet.
Also, if the shoes won’t show since the dresses are long, you could even tell them to all just wear open toe black with heels in a certain size range. Then you don’t have to worry about ordering shoes and they can wear a pair they have or go find a pair on sale that they’d wear again.
I just went to a wedding this weekend where the maids had on long dresses. I was soaking up every detail trying to think of how I wanted my own wedding and I still have no clue what shoes they were wearing. So, your instincts are right. No one will even see them so don’t even bother stressing about that since it really won’t matter at all and you can free up time to worry about more important (and noticable) details!

I vote black too. I think that color-matching is a little 80s/matchy-matchy for me. Plus, if the dresses are long, no one is going to really notice their shoes anyway.

Thanks soooo much…I was really stressing about it….looking at pictures of BM’s dresses and trying to decide….that’s why it’s 2 in the morning and I’m still up. I know what you mean about soaking in every detail…the last 3 weddings I went to was after I was engaged and you definately notice a lot more. Though, I know i have no idea about the BM’s shoes in any of the weddings and 2 of the weddings had short dresses!
I guess I was trying to help my friends out, since a lot are taking Friday off of work to come in and paying to stay at a hotel for 2 nights, plus they are also paying for their own hair and makeup. (By their choice because for 3 of my BM’s I was intheir weddings and I did, so they totally were not accepting me paying for their hair…my other BM’s are family, so they wanted to pay also.) I was trying to be budget friendly for them.
Good luck planning!
Here is the dress and the color…it’s a corset…alfred angelo…my dress is a maggie sottero corset back!
