This is the dress that my gals will be wearing for the wedding:
It’s Alfred Angelo style 6129SN in Grape.
I was originally debating which color shoe to tell them to wear. Black looks awful and I really don’t care if they wear the exact same shoe, I’d just want them to have the same color shoe. So it seems to be down to silver or gold.
My Maid/Matron of Honor came over with the dress and two different shoes to test it out. The gold shoe (and by gold I really mean champagne) looked nice, but I feel as though if I tell them to wear a gold shoe, then I don’t think silver accessories would look nice.
The challenge is that both myself and the girls prefer silver jewelery. So while they may not wear the jewelery again, I’d at least like to give it a fighting chance that they could.
Here’s an example of the types of shoes that each girl has:

what about another solid color? Do you have another wedding color? I think either would work and even though I voted for gold/gold, I would wear silver acessories with gold shoes as long as it is not overwhelming. I would also wear silve shoes with that dress. Are you using wither color else where in your wedding?

I think gold would look better with but if you are doing silver accessories then you should do the silver shoes.

I voted silver shoes/silver jewelry because you said you and your girls prefer silver jewelry and I think it would look best if the jewelry and shoes matched.
Having said that, I think either silver or gold would work with that dress. What are the other colors in your wedding? That might help us decide. But I would stick with silver jewelry with silver shoes OR gold jewelry with gold shoes.

Good question ladies! The other color is a lime/bright green. Keep in mind that the centerpieces will be purple with a hint of green hydrangea…so it’s really primarily purple, with green accents.
My florist did a little sample bouquet for me. Here’s a shot to show you the flowers the girls will carry:
Here’s the bouquet against the dress:

Ok, I just voted gold/gold, but then I saw that everyone prefers silver jewelry. In that case, I’d go with silver/silver. Either silver or gold will look great. The dresses look so pretty with the bouquets!

Generally I like purple with gold better than silver, but silver works better with the rest of your colors. So silver shoes/silver jewelry.

@slicey19: I agree, I also voted for gold/gold, but think that gold shoes w small silver accessories may be the best of both worlds for your BMs

Bugger! It won’t let me edit my original post. Part of it appears to have not gone through. Here’s the jewelry I was contemplating:
Bracelet (for bm with non-pierced ears only)

Tan shoes and gold accessories.

Any additional thoughts on the color choice with the flower selection? I feel like the flowers might lend themselves more to cool rather than warm. Or am I way overthinking this? LOL
