- Wedding: October 2010
SO my bridesmaids are those lazy ones that have no helped in any way besides offering to complain about costs of there dress $100 and the collor of there shoes,, I would like them to wear gold shoes because I will match the groomsmen and the whole collor theam.. But they tell me including my mother I am just being too picky. I understand my girls are low income people as am I ,, I only have a $5000 budget including food , dress, rings everything! I am paying out of my budget for two of the girls already. There has been no offerings of help or partys before the wedding its like they just wanna free load and show up for the fun. Just let me know if you think gold shoes is a lil picky or totaly justified.. I dont want to be a bridezilla but this issue is pushing me over the edge! My parents are acting like im a spoiled snot with my budget ,, lmao its also getting split 3 ways father mother and us so thats like $1400 each !!! come on now thats unheard of right !! lol
I don’t think that you are out of line for wanting certain colors for your wedding, but they do have a point. They probably don’t want to put out money for shoes they will never wear again. Do you have a picture of the dresses and the shoes you are wanting? That would give us a better idea of what you are looking at for your vision.
I dont’ think asking your girls to wear gold shoes is a big deal. If you gave them a color and they have free range over the style and price then I don’t see what there is to be upset about. Good luck!
thanks for the help ladys! but if im buying the dress can i kinda say $25 shoes please?
I love what you’ve choosen! I don’t think you are asking too much!
I also love what you have chosen. I don’t see what the problem is. Asking them to pay $25.00, even if they don’t ever where those shoes again is not asking too much of them at all, especially since you are paying for their dresses. I think they need to suck it up and get on board with you.
they have the almost exact sandals at ross and marshalls for like 12.99 and i think they are super pretty and these can def be worn again!!!
welcome i scope out ross and marshalls ever weekend they have a lot of useful and budget minded items !!!!
oh, I bought a pair of gold and silver shoes (more gold than silver) from dillards for a green dress and I’ve worn them several times already!
gold you can wear with ANYTHING. seriously, if the style is the one in the picture, those would go with anything and everything. from casual to formal.
I don’t think it’s a big deal at all. of course, if it were me, no way I’d have the extra $25 to spend right now…. so maybe that’s their problem, also??
Ryna ,, yeah I think that is the problem everyone in the wedding is pretty low income including myself.. I feel bad asking them to do this but It would be over a hundred dollars if I did. I might buy them for my girls anyway, so I buy there dress I buy there shoes I sear I will not be buying bridesmaids gifts thoe lol.I am dressing my two kids my husband myself geesh . I register at Walmart so they can buy us a wedding gift under $10 so they dont feel bad either. It must just be a life lesson of tolleration lol. Im at the point wear what ever happens happens Im just sooooo Happy I am going to get married to the man of my dreams and that makes all the lil stuff petty. Its just one round of drinks my guests wont have lol oh well right? I might just phrase it like that too next time we talk.
