Hey, I’ve just chosen a dress all my maids like, and got it in everyone’s size. The problem is we’re not a very girly lot, and none of us really know where to start with shoes and accessories. I’ve decided to pick a colour and let them choose their own shoes as one never wears heels, one never wears flats.
Here’s a link to the page with more pictures. http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_008010312507?CMP=OTC-Affilinet&CMP=AFC-ANET-437947

what time of year is the wedding? I would be thinking nude or gold.

BusyBee23: FWIW, I’d let them wear whatever shoes they want–the dress is long, so no one will see them, and that way they can save money and wear something they already own if they want.
As far as jewelry, I’d say the same thing–just let them wear whatever small, tasteful jewelry they want. There’s no reason why they all need to be wearing matching jewelry; they’re already wearing matching dresses.

I think let each girl pick a pair of nude shoes, and maybe gift them each a rose or antique gold (yellow gold wouldn’t compliment as well) necklace or bracelet to wear.

Nude would look great with that color! My gals dresses were a dark blue, and although I told them that they could wear whatever they wanted (since the dresses were long) – they both decided on the same nude wedge, and it looked great (I’ll post apic below).
They got them at DSW, so they can easily wear them again for other stuff.

I’m guessing that you live in the UK given your choice of vendor for the dress.
Other than an optional “shoe shot” by your photographer, their shoes will not be visible, so a mismatched look will be fine. I do agree with other pp’s that nude will look great. There are many different shades of nude though. Grey would also look nice.
For other accessories, I would give them each a neckace-something like this. These are from Asos.

I say either a nude, or if you want to go with something a little different, maybe a sparkly gold shoe! and gold accessories

Staying with Modcloth, I like this a lot with your dress and one of the above necklaces from Asos.

Thank you everyone! Nude see a a popular choice, I think everyone will be happy with that. I hadn’t even thought about all this until my sister (MOH) started asking! Cheers 🙂

SouthernBee00: that’s what I’d thought would happen tbh! Then once we found a dress my BMs we’re asking what shoes I wanted them in. We decided I’d choose a colour group, and then leave it up to them 🙂
