I think putting them in a gift bag with tissue paper would be fine.

As soon as I started reading your post and dilemma I thought a gift bag, with tissue paper and ribbon to compliment your wedding colours and or the colour of the shoes. Then I read your statement about this but honestly I think it’ll be fine.

Can you get a nice bag (like a beach bag, overnight, large purse etc so that bag is part of the gift so they will think you purposely threw the boxes out?

I agree with Naiexoxo, go to Michaels and buy some cute photo or card boxes! Or I think they even have hat boxes that would be really cute with some tissue paper in them. That way the girls can keep their fabulous shoes safe when they aren’t wearing them!

You could use a shoe bag in your wedding colors:

or buy a plain colored bad and have it monogrammed for each maid:

Personalized Womens Drawstring Shoe Bags - 2795

or buy plastic shoe boxes and use ribbon to match your colors:

or use colored shoe boxes:

A nice round paper mache hat box in a neutral tone with nice tissue tied up with an elegant wired ribbon would be nice. You can usually purchase them at a craft or fabric store like JoAnns. If the shoes are a to be a complet surprise a round box may help keep the suspense!  Best of luck to you!Smile

Manolos will look good in anything! your bms are lucky to be getting such stylish shoes from you, I dont think they will mind how you present them. Those shoes would still look hot even in a ziploc bag

@zoe:cute tissue paper/gift bag combo sounds great to me! I actually think it would be cuter than having them in shoeboxes anyways!
