My bridesmaid dresses are Persimmon – sort of a burnt orange – and all the accents are butter yellow. They will be wearing the most adorable butter yellow shoes (I let them pick the dresses and their shoes), but I was looking to wear shoes that would match the persimmon in their dresses – and I can’t find burnt orange pumps anywhere! I want plainer looking pumps, or strappy sandels, but I don’t want rhinestones, accents, etc…
ANY SUGGESTIONS? I sent a swatch of my girls’ dresses to a dyeables company, and they said the shoes would only match well either indoors, or out, and that they dye based on whether the shoes will be worn inside or outside. My wedding is going to be both in and out…HELP?!?!

@ncameron879: I would just get them dyed, and then consider them matched. No one — NO ONE — is going to grab your foot, and hold it up to your bridesmaids’ dresses, and ponder the similarities in color…=) You’ll match well enough and it will be beautiful. I love the colors!

@ncameron879: no help with shoes but wanted to say awesome dress color choice my BMs are wearing the same color.

Check Payless- In their dyeable line, “Spiced Ginger” may be burnt orange you’re looking for. (looked a LOT different in the in-store swatch than online)
I feel your pain… we were looking for orange shoes for almost 3 months- it’s everywhere as an accessory color, but for some reason, shoe designers didn’t pick up on it.
