Okay bees, I need your help! All my bridesmaids are still in college, so I’ve been incredibly budget-conscious for them. I let them pick their own dress (they found one at a fabulous price that they all really like!) and am not requiring them to pay for anything else. That said, I asked them a couple weeks ago if (in leiu of a large Bridesmaid or Best Man gift) they would like me to pay to have their hair done professionally. Their response was actually that they would prefer to DIY their hair/makeup, but would really appreciate it if I used the money I was planning to spend to buy them all shoes to wear. I agreed and asked for opinions/tastes.
Their response was that they did not want to wear heels and that they thought flats with lace would look really nice. I set out looking and after quite some time searching, I found a pair that I really like. Here’s a picture (and a picture of their dress–it’s an infinity wrap/convertible dress):
These shoes are from Dessy and are right around $40/pair, which is about as much as I want to spend. I emailed the link to my sister/MOH and her reply was, “I don’t really like them. I would rather have a round toe or a peep toe” Ugh! I was so excited about these shoes that I’m actually really disappointed that she’s not a fan. My initial reaction is to just say, “too bad, my wedding, my money, my choice”…but I realize that going all bridezilla over such a small detail would be, well, crazy. So, I’m continuing my search.
However, I (so far) have been unsuccessful in finding anything I like that fits her description and isn’t really expensive! So, at this point I’m begging you all for your help! Help me find shoes before I go crazy! 🙂
