Wow.  Well I’d tell her that your 14 yr old sis needs something more age appropriate.  Buy the strappy sandals, and give them to her.  You don’t have to call them a Bridesmaid or Best Man gift, just tell her that you know she can’t afford another pair, so you’re gifting her these, and you’d like her to wear them to the ceremony.  If she’s still being a brat about it, I would go to someone else for help (your mom comes to mind) so that you have another opinion about the shoes, someone who is on your side and can tell your sister she’s being a brat, and the wedding (surprise!) isn’t about her.  It’s funny that the 14 yr old is acting more mature!

I would just buy them the shoes you like and call it a day….

Don’t stress over this little detail, this is supposed to be a fun happy time (planning your wedding).

Maybe have "mom" or "dad" intervene and talk to them if they don’t act any better after you give them the shoes you like.

 I agree.  She abused her privileges..  You were allowing her to pick out something she’d like, but appropriate.  Since she was vetoed, she probably could have gone back and looked for something else she’d like, but chose to be immature about it and thought she could insist on the wrong shoe.  She needs to get over it.
