I’m letting my BMs pick their own silver shoes (they are all wearing the same dress too). My BMs all have very different tastes in shoes so I didn’t want to force them all to buy something they didn’t like. I did a lot of searching through wedding blogs and saw that it’s really not noticeable when the girls wear different shoes.

All of my BM’s are going to have different shoes, I rather they be comfortable and honestly no one is really going to be looking at their shoes. So sure let them be different

Not to sound rude or anything….but your guests aren’t going to care. No one will notice.  

Once in my cousins wedding she freaked out bc her Future Sister-In-Law “forgot” to get shoes that matched the rest of us and ended up with a pair of black pumps with a champange dress…no one even noticed. You couldn’t even tell in the pictures.

i am also letting them pick out their own shoes. i only gave them the guidlines of they had to be silver and nothing too too high. i know my sister is wearing flats and the other girls are wearing heels. to me it’s really not that important. i want them all to be comfortable. and they didn’t tell me what kind of shoes to wear, so why should i? lol

My BMs all chose their own shoes as well.

1. It helps to reduce costs (if they already have something that works) or they at least get to buy a style that they like

2. Everyone can have their own personality (within reason) in their shoes

3. Fit issues don’t come up (I was in a friend’s wedding where we all purchased the same shoes by simply emailing the bride our size. Come wedding day, mine were WAY too wide and wouldn’t really stay on)

4. No one really notices them and your ladies will probably take off their shoes or change into flats for the reception anyway

Yep, all my girls had the same dress and each wore whatever gold shoe they wanted.

This pic w/ my husband actually shows off their different shoes better then the one with me 🙂

YEP

I’d rather they pick the shoes (I’ll specify color only). I’d rather they pick it so they don’t complain and whine the whole day their feet hurt becasue I picked amazing (yet uncomfortable) shoes.

@Laura Elizabeth: My parents are very traditional too so I know how you feel. It took my mom a while to finally accept that my girls are wearing short dresses!

Mine are all going to pick and wear their own black shoes. I think it will look fine!

Yep, I said “decide what color you want amongst yourselves, then go buy some.. if you want the same ones cool, it you want to wear something you already have thats fine as long as they’re the same color”. They chose beige (cornflower blue dresses) patent leather, some of them already owned them, some are going out to buy some.. they match almost everything so thats good!

My BMs are all wearing their own shoes. I just sent them the color I’d like the shoe to be and example of styles… and told them to wear anything that closely resembled the pics I sent
