Do you have a picture of the dress?  I think lots of bees have told their BMs that they can choose their own shoes as long as they’re in the same color family.  If you’re uncomfortable asking them to spend more money, you could also include shoes as a part of their Bridesmaid or Best Man gift (that’s what I’m doing).

I would completely allow them to choose their own, just set the guidelines. Color, minimum heel height, strappy or not, etc…

That way they can spend as much or as little as they want, and can’t complain, because they picked them out.

Hope this helps. Congrats and good luck!

Very cute.  I don’t think there would be anything wrong with telling them to choose their own shoes then.  If the shoes are going to be black, those should be easy for them to find!

My girls had short dresses, and I told them to wear whatever they wanted as long as they were black.  They all have good taste and like to look good, so I didn’t have to worry about what they picked out.  I just didn’t see a reason for anyone to spend more money on a pair of shoes if it wasn’t necessary. (I didn’t care if they matched exactly.)  They ended up talking to each other about what style to wear and all looked super cute!

My girls are wearing knee-length dresses, I told them to wear whatever shoes they wanted as long as they were comfortable and cute –I didn’t even give them a color family (just NOT gold). They all talked and decided to wear silver strappy heels. I’ve seen all of their shoe choices (each different) and they are hot! The best part is–they all picked shoes that they like and will wear again.

I think you’re definitely safe having them all pick their own shoes in the same color. I had my girls do that, and I feel better that they can wear the shoes again.

my Maid/Matron of Honor just told me she cant wear heels… I told her to practice is that out of line?
