Originally I wanted to find colorful shoes to match BM’s dresses (aqua/turquoise). This did not happen. So now I am considering a bit of a “rough edge” shoe.
This is what looks closes to them. But the ones I’m considering are brown leather on top.
I am having a garden wedding with no particular colors.
The traditional shoe I am considering is this:

I really like both shoes! You could wear the second pair for the wedding and bring the brown ones for pictures.
Hope that helps!

I think the brown ones look too clunky. When I see garden wedding the adjectives light, whimsical, fun, natural, etc come to mind and the brown shoes don’t fit that theme at all!

I agree with futureKMM- I would imagine that a garden wedding would have something a little softer, and maybe a lighter color than brown. I don’t think you should necessarily go with the ivory shoes either (though I do like them) but you should keep looking for that fun shoe you initially wanted.

Why are you giving up on the aqua/turquoise colored shoe idea? It seems like you had your heart set on that, and I think that would be more fun and garden-like (IMO) than the rough-edge shoe you selected. i found a couple of light blue-ish green shoes on zappos:

I really like the ivory pumps, its your wedding you want to look feminine 🙂

I like the sandals, but they look VERY casual and not really “wedding-y”.
I also don’t think they give off a garden wedding vibe.

I like the sandals, but with jeans or something. I can’t picture them with any sort of wedding dress. I’d say keep looking for the aqua/turquoise shoes if you don’t want to go with the ivory pumps. I’m sure you can find something to coordinate with the BMs; it doesn’t have to match exactly.

I completely agree with FutureKMM. To me the brown ones are way too chunky for a garden wedding theme. Look on Zappos, Aldo, bluefly, etc. They have some great colorful shoes that remind me of a garden theme! Good luck!

I’d keep looking – I like the idea of something strappier for a summer garden wedding.
