This is something my sister was wanting to know so I am asking her. She just called me a minute ago btw.
We’re doing the LBD and she says that all should have black high strappy heels. I agree with her. She said she will be happy to get a new pair (she has SOOOO many shoes already) and let the others know what she gets if they want to know but we’re cool with them just all wearing black strappy high heels!
So are you having your bm’s wear matching shoes or just in same color family?
Long long ago in a galaxy far, far away, back in the time of my college days, we all as b’maids wore (uuugggghhh! yeck!) dyed to match pumps.

My girls all wore silver strappy shoes of their choosing… no one is looking at anyones feet, anyway!

Because of my dislike of, in Bellenga’s words "(uuugggghhh! yeck!) dyed to match pumps"…. I will have my girls pick out their own shoes. As long as the shoes look ok with the bm dresses, whatever style they choose will be fine with me, some girls like 4" stilettos & some like kitten heel cuties. 🙂

We decided the color that would look best is a light gold…because there are so many options for this out there, we’re not going the dyed-to-match route. I’ve not yet been a bridesmaid so maybe I’m naive, but if it was a nice color we were dying the shoes, that wouldn’t be so bad. For example, I talked with my Maid/Matron of Honor about dyeing shoes in navy (to match the dress) but we just decided that would be too much navy. I don’t think having a pair of navy shoes would be so horrible. But, it’s just annoying to have someone tell you that not only do you HAVE TO buy these specific shoes, you have to spend another $20 or so to dye them.

I actually was at DSW about a year before my wedding, and already knew I wanted silver shoes for my b-maids, and saw an adorable Caparros pair for $39, and they amazingly had the sizes for all my b-maids, so I bought these shoes for the girls and had them pay me back. People seemed to like this b/c they didn’t already own silver shoes for the most part, and this way, it was one less thing on their do-to list.
I think it all depends on your wedding, your b-maids (do they already own plenty of shoes they could wear? Will they have to buy a new pair either way?), etc.

My sisters, I think, genuinely don’t believe me when I say, "I don’t care what you wear on your feet. Just make it something you like."
They keep asking me, "Are you sure?" and "Are you going to regret this?" I promise, I’ll be happy no matter what they all wear. In fact, purple platforms with feathers– more power to them!!! (They won’t though. It would be fun if they did!)

I’m only having a Maid/Matron of Honor and no BMs LOL so I don’t have to worry about them matching! My Maid/Matron of Honor just went in today to try on dresses!! I’m so excited!

I’m not even choosing one particular dress for them to wear, so matching shoes would be silly in my case. They’re wearing 100% whatever they want.

@doctorgirl – LOL….that’s how I feel….unfortunately my cousin didn’t agree with me for her wedding & I had to do the "pumps"…I sooo wanted platforms at the time….I also wanted blue nail polish to which she said "when YOU get married YOU can wear blue nail polish" She is going to be my Maid/Matron of Honor when the time comes…I am SO thinking about telling her she HAS to wear platforms & blue nail polish…hee hee!
@Surgie – they are darling shoes!!!

I just told my girls something white. I said I thought something strappier would look better with the dresses, but if they want to rock some knee high patent leather boots, that’s fine by me, as long as they’re white! ^_^

I asked my gals to wear something black to go with their LBD Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. I honestly don’t think I’ll notice or care what their shoes look like on the day. Also, my sister/MOH can’t wear heels, so I didn’t want to tell the other girls to wear something she couldn’t wear. I let them choose their dresses, so I figured they should choose shoes too. I just want them to be comfortable and to be able to stand and dance and have fun.

Mine all wore red shoes that I chose. I asked for their help choosing others to go with their brown dresses, but no one helped. So, they bought the shoes that I asked. It’s a long story why I didn’t choose the LBD option, but wish I had. If so I think this would look fabulous, so maybe you can consider it?

it depends on your preference but all my ladies are wearing long dresses so it didn’t matter to me. i did ask that they all be silver though.

I couldn’t imagine buying shoes for my bmaids or asking them all to buy the same shoe. Feet are so different, I can’t imagine one shoe being comfortable or flattering for everyone!
