    Ok. What is your theme? What color are the Groomsmen wearing? 

     

    Based on the information you gave, I personally would prefer the 2nd option- I like TOMS and what they stand for and I think that makes a statement, even on your wedding day. Laughing Also, since the girls will be wearing different colors, you don’t want it to get TOO busy (different color dresses, sunglasses, etc.), so I would vote no to sunglasses unless they wore them during the entrance to the reception or only at the reception.

    You can have your made of honor stand out with jewelry, not the sash.

    Toms for sure – I love converse but I don’t think they work with dresses.

    I love the sunglasses idea, I think it would make for cute pictures and it’s such a so cal thing – but I’m a sucker for fun sunglasses, especially with dresses and fancy clothing. I was assuming the wedding party wouldn’t wear them during the ceremony though – sounds cheesy but if it were me I’d want to look into their eyes and feel their support at that time.

    @mm13:  personally, I would hate to wear Converse or Toms as a bridesmaid. And I know many of my friends would feel the same way. Maybe at the reception. Are the dresses long enough to cover the shoes? I get that it is trendy, but do you think looking back you will like the look?

    Also, you might want to look into the actual benefits of the Toms brand. There have been a lot of recent news regarding the brand and how much help they truly offer. Basically, the free shoes actually take away business from Africans who are selling shoes for a living. I’ll look for the article.
