Our wedding colors are Gray (bridesmaids dresses) and Blush (flowers). I originally started out wanting blush shoes but have been rethinking that idea lately. If these were your wedding colors what did you go with? If they’re arent your colors, what would you suggest??
Here they’re in a real wedding (the darker ones):

@MarieeToBee: I would probably do nude shoes.

You can’t even see the shoes, so I say it doesn’t matter. Let them wear what they want.

I’m doing gray too…I just told them to wear black dress shoes.

@HeartsandSparkles: +1! I voted for blush because that was closest. 🙂

@MarieeToBee: Lovely dress. I voted blush to fully incorporate your theme.

i also voteed for blush.. i think nude/blush would be best.. but honestly, silver, black, nude whatever! it would all look nice, since the grey is so versatile.. love the colors!

They won’t be seen in any pics, so you really can encourage them to wear what they want.
They will be seen when the walk down the aisle, so if that is a concern I would do pewter. Blush would be a little too match matchy for me.

My daughter wore almost that exact same style but definitely same color when she was a bridesmaid recently! They wore nude shoes with it and it was gorgeous!

@MarieeToBee: i love the colour of the dress.
i notice your wedding is in june. what about a nice strappy silver or nude sandal? i think those colours would be more versatile after the wedding. maybe if the girls stuck to the same colour of sandal, they could choose their own style and heel height that they would feel comfortable in.

I would go with black I think.

@MarieeToBee: We have the same colors! Makes me excited to see another bee with charcoal and blush, because there is so much blush with gold on Pinterest that (embarassingly) I was starting to doubt myself…
Onto your poll: I told my girls to buy blush shoes, so that is what I voted. Good luck and keep us posted!

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding with the same colours but also yellow as an accent. The nude shoes looked really good and your BMs will probably be able to wear them more often.

Just for the record I am letting the girls pick out their own shoes, and have asked them for their color choice but I keep getting “whatever you want”. I will not tell them what shoe to buy I just want to steer them towards a color.
@mypinkshoes: a strappy silver would be fine.
I am a huge fan of black, love black shoes and black clothes, but for my soft color palette black doesnt fit in.

@oneyearout: oh my goodness!! I am totally doubting myself too. I am midly regretting not picking blush dresses with gold accents because my venue fits that color palette much better. BUt we have chosen the gray already and I do love it, I will just have to find a way to decorate the venue space to convey the same color scheme.
