    YES! It makes me so excited. I have the red crochet ones, I am super stoked about them. My BMs aren’t wearing them though, since they didn’t all have them and I didn’t want them to have to pay for them. 

    Oh ha. Those would be the ones I am wearing! They were limited edition so you may have issues finding them in the right size. My Fiance called all the stores within like a 5-6 hour radius and got the last of them in my size.

    Eugh. I find Toms so ugly. I understand that they’re comfortable, but they’re just not attractive. I think they’re going to be looked back on as the Crocs of this decade.

    I am not a fan of Toms. I guess they could work if the dresses are long and will cover their feet. To me, they look like shoes my grandma wears (no offense to my grandma or anyone who likes Toms!).

    Ehhhh. Toms are definitely not my style, and I’d never wear them. But, if you think they’ll work for your wedding and your BMs, go for it!

    I think people either HATE Toms (me! sorry..), or LOVE them. I know Future Sister-In-Law would be thrilled at the chance to wear them as a Bridesmaid or Best Man, but my others would probably want to kill me. So it totally depends on the BMs’ style and what you want them to look like!

    If your BM’s like the idea… (make sure and see how they take the idea…) go for it!  I would plan on having a pair for yourself though, at least for the reception and some pictures…  (as long as your wedding isn’t very formal and more ‘playful’ (for a lack of a better word..)) If one of your main purposes is to make them shorter I would just ask them to find a pair of flats though…

    I like them and I know my BMs would love them! If they fit with the style of your wedding, I say GO FOR IT!

    I love them and would wear them all the freakin time. I’d ask your BM’s. If at least half are on board then I say go for it. I think they’re lovely and fun!

    I hate them and would never wear them personally.  But it’s your day! Would you be purchasing them for your BMs, or having them purchase them in addition to the dress?  $60 for shoes that I would never wear again wouldn’t thrill me.  But I’d do it with a smile on my face 🙂

    TOMS always remind me of old people orthopedic shoes… so for me personally, it would be a no go in my wedding. But you have to go with your own style and I do love the charity the TOMS brand participates in.

    @KatyElle: yeah but they aren’t comfortable orthopedic shoes. The charity that Toms support is great but the shoes are not of great quality. I feel that my Future Sister-In-Law replaced hers three times this summer alone, and for 60 dollars that is pretty expensive.

    I find TOMS incredibly uncomfortable…maybe I have weird shaped feet or something. If you want them in flats, I think you could find cuter ones.
