I’m having a difficult time figuring out what to have the bridesmaids wear for shoes. At first I said they could wear anything they wanted but in a nude, beige, ivory, off white, or gold color…..(Obviously I’m way vague haha)…. But they are having trouble finding something and I’m realizingI need to give them more direction. Now I’m starting from scratch and I need suggestions please!
My bridesmaids will be wearing this nude pink, long silk chiffon skirt.
And they are all getting different cream colored blouses that will tuck in like this:
So they are having the same skirt but different styles of blouses. Skirts will be around the ankle. And my bridesmaids all range widely in height (Some very tall and some very short)
That’s why I was thinking they can just get whatever shoe they want so long as it is in the similar color (like nude? or ivory?) But now I don’t know…..
What do you think?
These are their bouquets. I love the pink. Maybe they could get shoes in that pink? Or would that look to matchy matchy? I kind of want something nuetral but not sure..

Nude heels would look great

Yeah I was thinking the same. One of my bridesmaids found these shoes.
One as heels and similar as a flat. Maybe I could have them choose between these two (according to their height and preference). Are they too plain though? I feel like we should add something to it…

@sommertime: I think I would choose open toe’d, it looks a bit dressier

I would let the bridesmaids choose their own nude shoes (who knows they may already own some) and get them a fun shoe clip as a part of their bridesmaid gift to make them match and give the look a little jazz.
Something like this in your colors?

I think letting them do a gold sparkly shoe would look really nice!

I agree with mrshollinger…gold would look beautiful!

With nude and ivory, I really like black. They would for sure be able to either find something in their closet, or be able to rewear them!

I would def let your BMs choose between flats and heels [similiar designs of course]. I NEVER wear heels, and would feel pretty awkward wearing them if a bride made me.. plus, i’d probably topple over from not being used to them!

@sommertime: Nude will workd great…what about those lovely shoes in the actual pic with the skirt? What’s wrong with them?!
PS–love your idea to mix up the tops!

I agree that you should let them pick their own shoes – especially since the skirt is long it would kind of stink to ask them to buy shoes that you pick when nobody will really see them anyway.
I say either nude or gold (both colors should be easy to find.)

@sommertime: Those skirts are gorgeous! Where did you find them?
