    @expecting rain: I know, I got a pair from my Mother-In-Law. Not my favorite shoes, I think I wore them once.

    I think TOMS are a great idea! Not only are they comfortable and trendy… but a pair of shoes is donated to a child in need for each pair purchased. Can’t send a better message then that!

    I hate flats with a short dress, so if the dress was short and I had to wear flats, I’d die… haha, not really, I’d wear anything for a friend. But I would certainly bring heels for the reception to make myself more comfortable.

    Honestly, I hate all of the flat Toms and really don’t care for the ones you posted – I’m sorry !!  🙁

     

    That being said… I’m wearing the wedge versions when I can’t take my heels anymore:

    I don’t think they look anything like real Toms.  Maybe try those?  They have them in all kinds of patterns and colors.

    I personally like toms, but I voted no.  I think it might be one of those things you look back on in a decade and regret. That said, I really do think those crochet ones are cute!  I just worry about your pictures looking really dated.

    @KristenGotMarried: saw these at Nordstrom over the summer – love them! perfect summer shoes. I love the printed canvas ones.

    I think that a more structured ballet flat with a similar look may be a good idea. I love the look of Toms but most people don’t. I just think it may look out of place with a bridesmaids dress.

    They are fine to wear every day (although I don’t know if I’d buy them)…but I think they’re too homely(sp?) for a wedding

    I think you should do whatever you want.  I wore Birkenstocks as a bride.  !!!!

    (No, not the sandals!  Birks have a million cute shoes by Tatami and Footprints.)

    I don’t think those are really bridesmaid shoes. Not for me, anyways.

    I’m wearing TOMS with my wedding dress. I bought plain white ones and decorated them in my wedding colors. I can’t wait!

    A good friend got married and bought all the bridesmaids the silver sparkly Tom’s to wear at the reception.  It was really nice, especially since I was really wanting to take off my heels.  Downside, I have no where to wear sparkly Tom’s, and Tom’s are just not my style.  I have worn them once since her wedding.  I would not have wanted to wear them for her ceremony, but later into the reception they were great!

    DO IT!!! I’m having the sparkly white TOMS for my reception footwear and I love it. Besides, the ladies will thank you for the comfort.
