As part of their gift, I am getting my maids a pashmina. They are wearing black knee length dresses of their choosing, and then I’ve asked them each to choose whatever color heels they would like (can’t wait for that bridemaid shoe photo). Ideally, I would match the pashmina to the shoes, but 3 of the 5 live in other states so I won’t be able to see the shoes in color to really match the color PLUS I do have 2 slacker maids who I know will wait til the last minute to get their shoes. So, I am left with a choice between black or white/ivory pashminas. What do you think?

That’s a tough one….do you want them to contrast the dresses? Or blend with them? I love black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but when I think of a pashmina I would prefer an ivory color, because I know I could wear it winter or summer.
Will they wear them for your formal pics? If not, then I would choose ivory, actually even if they do, I think the black would blend in a little too much with their dresses.
Many of my aunts and cousins wear pashminas out, and they always wear a contrasting color to their outfit….but that’s just us. Have you asked them which color they would prefer?
