    I would do a strappy sandal or a peep toe since its June, not a closed toe pump.  I like either black, or using a metallic like gold or silver (depending on your colors). Good luck!

    Of those options, I like the peep toes or the sandlas for the same reason as above. But, I also think that telling the BMs to choose any black shoes would still look cohesive enough – especially since they’re wearing different dresses, too.

    I like the idea of a metallic peep toe pump with a black dress.  I think black dress + black shoes might be too much black for a wedding.

    I think either the peep toe or strappy sandal would work for a June wedding. However, I’m hesitant to tell you to narrow it down to black peep toe only because I could see them having a harder time finding that. I know some peep toes dig into my toes. Whereas I’m sure there are plenty of comfy, black strappy sandals.

    I agree with @Alleycat:. I really do love the IDEA of peep-toe pumps, and I think they would probably look best.  However, every time I try to buy a pair, they seem to hurt my toes.  I would not want to be forced into purchasing a pair of gorgeous shoes that will hurt my feet on the day of the wedding and which I will have trouble ever being able to wear.

    Honestly, I would let them wear whatever they are comforable with. Give them a color of your choice, if you must, and let them decide what style fits best for them. I’d rather have happy bridesmaids wearing their own unique thing than a uniform look where someone is obviously miserable.

    I like the look of the black peep toe, but not for a summer wedding. I think if u are opposed to a lot of color, u should go with a stripy metallic.

    Personally, I’d use color. I love when ppl wear black and have red/pink/etc shoes (or whatever your colors are).

    @AJester2:  I agree with this.  I think color would look adorable, especially with the colored bouquets you mentioned.  If you’re set on black though, I would just tell them to get black heels and let them pick for the same reasons PPs stated.
