I think it looks super cute! Maybe consider nude shoes instead of black…Orange+black kind of reminds me of halloween. Do you have any other colors you’re incorporating?

I love the mixed orange but I agree with the PP in that you should look into nude shoes. The black stands out too much.

I like it, but I agree with PPs that the black shoes may be a bit harsh. What about gray pumps?

I think the dresses look great but i also agree with the PP to chose another shoes color. Black is too “strong”, i don’t like it with Bridesmaid or Best Man or wedding dresses

I’m also agreeing with the no black shoes please. Very Halloween. I don’t like black shoes on BMs in general unless their dress is black or maybe a dark grey. I do like the mismatched orange dresses. My girls are wearing mismatched fuchsia dresses except the fabric, color and length will all be the same.

The orange is killer. I agree w/ previous posters, grey or nude heels would work better, imo.

I am loving the mismatched bridesmaid ideas. I recently decided to do this with my bridesmaids except for different shades of blue and all floor length. Great idea!

I think grey shoes would be great! The orange looks good, too!

I like the mismatched look and I think the grey shoes would look really nice with orange dresses 🙂  It would have a very modern look that wasn’t too halloween-y.  

Are you going to have orange flowers for the bridesmaids?  The only thing that I noticed is that in the inspiration picks the orange flowers pop nicely against the black or grey dresses. If you do orange dresses and also orange flowers, you may want to mix in some other color (green, white, yellow) with the bouquets so that they don’t blend in too much (especially with different shades of orange for dresses making it hard to pick a shade for flowers that would be different enough to stand out). Something like this maybe with sort of grayed-out green succulents or leaves:

Love the mismatched orange dresses but agree black shoes are too harsh.  I think nude or gold would be pretty.  But that is just my personal preference.  If you like black shoes then go for it!
