Having my future sister in laws children as bridesmaids, wedding is in 5 weeks all dresses arepayees for and ready, In laws are all extremely interfering always have bin, I’ve just tended to ignore it and avoid confrontation as I’m not the arguing type especially when I know would upset my future hubby! (they don’t seem 2 care bout that… Anyhow!) anyway issue is I’m about order shoes for sil childrenandswell as my 2, due to variation in ages has been difficult, sil is insisting her girls feet are difficult to fit in normal shoes and they need special shoes! Am I being unreasonable wanting them all have the same? Or as per ushall are they just being difficult??

Would you be okay with requesting a certain color, and giving up on having the same style? I don’t think it’s worth the headache…no one will notice their shoes, and you won’t remember them after the wedding anyway!

Sounds like the easiest solution, and also then you are probably off the hook for paying for said shoes as well… as SIL can choose whatever she wants.
PS… Worst case scenario, day of wedding, kids show up in shoes you don’t like… oh well c’est la vie, shoes won’t make or break a wedding… they’ll be quickly forgotten as you embrace yourself in your Inner Bride, and the arms of your New Hubby !!

Yes this choose a color and be done with it, some things just are not worth the fight!

Agree with PP. Shoes wont matter, let the SIL pick and pay for them!

I agree, I would see if you can agree on a color and go from there…in my opinion it’s not a battle worth fighting. I hope it works out for you!
