I would wear it with black after the wedding, but I’m really bad at matching things, so you shouldn’t put too much stock in that advice :).

However, I think they’re really cute! Just to play nice, maybe you should show them to your Future Sister-In-Law and just ask if she thinks they’re okay. You don’t have to, she told you to pick your own shoes, but I think it would make her feel good and it will let her know you’re excited/planning :).

I def dont think she is the kind of bride who will care about the shoes esp given the freedom of choosing the dresses yourselves. I think those shoes will look nice with those dress and you could wear them again with black (although I wouldn’t wear them with grey pants personally). Just show her before you buy them and tell her you really like these shoes but don’t want to buy them unless she is ok with you wearing them for her wedding. I dont think you can outdo the bride no matter what your shoes look like.

I think nude shoes are great, especially with that green dress. I loooove my pairs of nude shoes. They’re very versatile and fashionable (at the moment).  And I don’t think the shoes you posted are crazy at all! They’re very nice, and you would definitely be able to wear them again.  I thought you were going to say you have some black studded ankle boots you wanted to wear. haha.  I would be a little concerned wearing those shoes to a campground though. I would hate to ruin a nice pair of shoes in the dirt!

i would just ask her.

is the dress darker in person than it looks in the photo? it looks pretty bright, and i don’t like the nude shoes with that shade of green.

@BunnyBrideToBe: silver would look great with that dress, and silver shoes are definitely rewearable (i have 2 pairs of silver flats i wear all the time)

Ask the bride!  She’ll probably say she doesn’t care.  I like the shoes, but I don’t think you’d be limited to a nude color- you could go for black or a muted gold.  Maybe I’m getting too crazy here though 🙂  And its a pretty dress- I’m glad you found one that wasn’t expensive!

I love the shoes, and its a nude/neutral, so you can wear them with pretty much anything in the future, including other neutrals!

I think your best bet would be to pick almost any style of shoes in a neutral or metallic- black, nude, silver, or grey would all work.  If your friend isn’t really a shoe person, she will probably barely notice what you are rocking on your feet.  In fact, the people who will notice are women who are also into shoes… so have fun with it!

I personally don’t think that the shoes go that well with the dress. but internet differs from in person!

Your best bet is to ask the bride … that’s your safest option.

Hi new bee here and stumbled across this thread….I had long admired those exact shoes on piperlime until I saw them in person. My cousin actually had all of her bridesmaids wear them and it was sort of a disaster.  It was an outdoor wedding …. and 4 inch heels + grassy hilly aisle… prob a bad choice but regardless the look was not as “classy” as I had anticipated them being.  The dresses were also short tight strapless cocktail dresses so I’m not sure that helped… but they didn’t give the appearance I was expecting.. I hope that helps a bit.

I know this is almost a year ago, but can I ask which campground the wedding was held at?? I live on the southshore and am going crazy trying to find a “classy” campground for our wedding. Thanks in advance for any info!!!
