What do the dresses look like?

If you go that route, make sure they break the shoes in before the big day. I actually wore my pink converse for the first time yesterday and they tore up the back of my heel.

I’m not a fan, but if you like it, go for it. Maybe you could have them do something that’s still formal but not as girly? Like a nude heel?

What about a bejeweled sandal? I have a pair that I bought specifically for going out to clubs in Vegas because they are low and comfortable, yet dressy. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture but I would imagine chains like DSW or places like Macy’s would have those kind of options.

Then maybe they can all pick a sparkly black shoe of their choice?

If it’s what they/you want, then go for it!  I agree that Converse sneakers can hurt a bit but just make sure you are prepared with no-show socks, bandaids, and this miracle worker from Dr. Scholl’s:

I love when people do the unexpected at weddings.  I’m not a fan of cookie-cutter events and I would love to see a pop of pink sneakers under those dresses!  It’d also make for fun pictures with your photographer.  See? 🙂

I’m doing flip flops [pretty wedding ones], and my girls will be in flats.
