Generally you shouldn’t be able to see the entire shoe with a full-length skirt. Is your bridesmaid tall enough that she needs the extra length ordered for her dress?

Then again, if she’s wearing ballet flats that make the dress long enough that people can only see her toes, it won’t matter how fancy they are anyway, because they won’t be seen. Right?

If the dresses are floor length, you really shouldn’t see the shoes when they are standing.  You will probably see the toes of the shoes when they walk, and of course may see the whole shoe when the are sitting, during the reception.  So — yes and no.

My little sister (and MOH) is getting dyed ballet flats because she fell in love with the one skirt option I offered that couldn’t be ordered in extra length. While all the other girls are going with white shoes, hers being in the same blue gives more of an illusion that the skirt is long enough. (In reality it needs another inch or two, but who am I to stand in the way of dress love?)

If you’re worried about a skirt looking slightly too short, think about dying the shoes (I also think it makes the flat slipper ones look less like slippers) to make it look like the skirt comes closer to the ground.

hey, i know from one of your earlier posts your girls have the same bm dresses my girls do, and we’re also deciding on shoes right now. i think we’re just going to do similar colors but not the same excact same shoes, based on the fact you wont be able to see them due to the full length skirt. so some girls are wearing flats & some will be wearing heels. if people see them a little, while their dancing or sitting or whatever, oh well. i figure they should be looking at me & Fiance not my bm’s shoes. lol. but seriously.

My bridesmaids are also wearing full-length dresses. We’ll have them hemmed so that when they stand, you can’t see shoes or toes at all..But when they walk, you’ll see toes/front of the shoes. The dresses will be skimming the floor at the front and we’ll have a mini train for them at the back. 🙂
