I am the Maid/Matron of Honor in a wedding in May in Florida. The bride selected a strapless chocolate brown, cocktail length dress for me to wear, http://www.anntaylor.com/ann/product/AT-Apparel/AT-30-Off-FP-Styles/Silk-Dupioni-Strapless-Bridesmaid-Dress/278784?colorExplode=false&skuId=10711989&catid=cat860034&productPageType=fullPriceProducts&defaultColor=3919
though the church requires that your arms be covered. Thus, she then selected a bridal wrap in ivory to wear during the ceremony (it is barely off-white) http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Chiffon-Beaded-Wrap-BEADEDWRAP_Accessories-Sashes-and-Coverage-Options-Coverage-Options
What color and style shoe would you wear with this combination, seeing as how contrasting each item is… and knowing that I want nothing shorter than a 3/3/4″ heel? The wedding colors are light pink and brown, yet I have no idea what color flowers I’m carrying (and neither does the bride as she is letting the florist decide).
I was considering silver shoes, as my jewelry is swarovski crystal, yet also thought some type of dyed shoe.
Please help.. I’m open to any suggestions! Thanks!
(By the way, I don’t plan on wearing the wrap after the wedding…just please pray the dress stays up. lol)

How light is the pink she is using? I would suggest the light pink shoes…or nude. I wouldn’t wear sliver shoes with a brown dress, personally.

Thanks for the feedback… I thought of that, too and I like that idea. When I asked about the pink color, the bride just said light pink. Haven’t seen the “pinK” she is using, other than what is on the “save the date” card. Maybe I could try and match that??

I agree a soft pink/blush or nude heel would go very well brown and also look very attractive for these color heels have a lengthening effect on your legs making them look long, lean, and SEXY! 😉 I also think that silver may not be the most complimentary color to wear with brown. Good luck shoe hunting!

I wore bronze shoes with my chocolate brown bridesmaid dress at my cousin’s wedding, similar to these:
However, the color of that dress looks like a “cool” toned brown, at least on my monitor. Maybe a pewter color (rather than bright silver) would go better with the light pink. You might have to judge when you see the dress in person. These are also from Zappos:

Another vote for nude pumps!
