hmmm… i think if you already have the gray and different shades of purple for the girls, then i like the idea of a simple black shoes better for them. And then you still have the navy shoes – so you stand out as the bride. It will all still make for very nice pictures.

Great choice of color for the bridesmaids. They can wear any of those colors. If you pick the navy, I would see about adding a hit or two of that color into their flowers so the shoes are  connected somehow to the overall color scheme.

You do have some time to watch for sales and can likely get a great deal if you pick the shoes you like now and watch for price reductions.

All of these shoes are about $60 .

http://www.endless.com has these:

Poetic License Glamming Up Pump

Paco Mena Pelori Peep Toe Pump

Charles Albert New 2652 Opeb Toe Pump -Only $34.95

 Paco Mena Quenya Platform Pump

 

To give you an idea of the kind of buy you can get, this shoe is reduced to $11-$25 depending on the size

Purple shoes would be cute too:

J Renee Gabrie Open Toe Pump

Poetic License Glamming Up Pump

Menbur Beleg Peep Toe Pump

Menbur Aeglos 04212 Open Toe Pump

 and Navy:

Nina Forbes

Nina Culver

Caparros Olinda

Caparros Harriet

Since you asked, I think that asking your bridesmaids to spend a penny more than $200 on their total attire is not very thoughtful as a friend. I suppose some people might have bridesmaids who are just loaded, but I suspect most aren’t.

My bridesmaids dresses were about the same price. I bought their shoes and jewelry for them, I started looking early and was about to get a good sale price on all of it (I have 5 bridesmaids so the sales really saved my butt!) I didn’t want them to stress out about money because of me.

I think its kind of unfair to make them buy shoes at all, can you choose a style/color and tell them to choose their own? For example, I told my girls ‘beige patent leather pumps’, 4 out of 5 already owned some so it was awesome. They’re just shoes, nobody is even going to pay attention to bridesmaids shoes at a wedding.

@kingytobe: I did the same and told my girls to wear black heels. They could wear a pair they already owned or use it as an excuse to buy some new shoes πŸ™‚

@medsie35: Maybe give them the 3 choices you set out in your OP and let your BMs decide? That might make them feel more included on the decision making process πŸ™‚

You need to ask your bridesmaids what budgets they have to work with. We can’t tell you how much THEY can afford πŸ™‚

Also, it’s not a gift if they have to wear it in the wedding, it’s then a prop.

I understand wanting all of your bridesmaids to have matching shoes. I’m really weird about that, everything has to match on my girls. Also, I disagree about the shoes being a prop instead of a gift. I bought my girls their shoes as part of their bridesmaid gifts and each one of them told me they are itching to wear but making themselves wait until the wedding, to me that’s a gift. Now if they don’t often wear heels or if they are dyed a color not often worn then that may not be the best idea for a gift. In my case, it was perfect! πŸ™‚
