So we have ordered the dresses and now they are asking what color shoes.. all I know is that I do NOT want matching colored shoes.
Here are the dresses, They are all the dreamsicle color.. but the monitor makes them look off.. the first one is my Maid/Matron of Honor it will be long.. the rest are short (knee length). 6 girls including Maid/Matron of Honor, a jr. bridesmaid (i can’t find her dress but it’s very plain). 2 of them chose the same dress.. Also do you think the mismatching dresses will look dumb? They are different types, I don’t even know if they are REALLY what I wanted but just nothing looked great.. And the color.. sigh.. I don’t even know if it goes with my color scheme, but who is really going to care but me. We(by that I mean me) are going for a southern/garden style/really light and airy theme. My primary colors are peach/rose/goldenrod and I might add a champagne table linen.
Maid/Matron of Honor
Oh and here is my dress.. why not right?

Congratulations!! I think the dresses are beautiful. Great choice, try not to second guess it. As for shoes I would say to keep it basic either black or white, but white would look best, in my opinion, since the dresses are light in color. I hope this helps.

I can picture the southern summer garden feel you are going for when I look at the dresses. Although I’m not sure how I feel about the ruffle on the Maid/Matron of Honor dress, or that the Maid/Matron of Honor will have a longer dress than everyone. But I can see the theme with those colors and the light/airy/summer-y style of the dresses.
ETA: What about a nude colored shoe?

The Maid/Matron of Honor did pick out that dress… I chose the long for her.. wierd.. ugh.. I second guess EVERYTHING. Oh well..

Also if it is an outdoor wedding you could have them in sandals, unless you want a dressier shoe.

I would do nude or silver as you seem to have silver on your dress.

@TopazWedding: ooo I LOVE that color and I totally think it goes with your light and airy theme! That first one is gorgeous!
Tell them nude shoes~ it will go with everything and the girls will have differnent tastes so they wont be the same. I’m in a wedding in june and had to buy nude shoes for it and they’re really EVERYWHERE now… and totally rewearable ;]
Love it! They’re going to be beautiful 😀

Thanks! I’m thinking nude shoes too..
For those who are wondering.. it will be a catholic church ceremony.

I do agree that nude shoes would look nice OR maybe light gold. It seems you have a vision of lots of warm tones, and I think gold would pick up the pretty apricot tone of the dresses. Or maybe gold jewelry?

I think nude would be the best fit.

I think nude or silver would look great.
On an unrelated note, the model of the first bridesmaid dress looks like she has gangrene and is about to lose her arm. o.O

I’d go with silver or pewter shoes, or a pale gold.

I would say either nude, silver… or even gold would look awesome with this color…
Good luck!! 🙂
