OK so I have another dilemma that I’m hoping you wonderful ladies can assist with. So this is a pic of the style I want for my bridesmaid dresses. I want it to be knee length instead of floor as this dress, because I want them to be able to use it after the wedding. My colours are fuchsia, orange and black and so I want them to be in fuchsia, with orange gebera daisy bouquet, silver accessories. I have no idea what colour shoes will work best. Since they live in different countries, and are flying in for my wedding, I know the chances of them finding the same style or even colour shoe may be impossible. But I want a whole shoe, peep toe vs strappy sandals. What colour option do you think will work best?<br /> Black seems to be the front runner. I think silver may be ….idk bla. I want sth that’ll contrast and pop especially cause I want to do a shoe photo, my shoes are fuchsia.
Thoughts? Black, Silver or Other?

Nude pumps are always a good choice. But why not ask your bm what they prefer?

SKyAlex: I would suggest a nude shoe. You can request a nude peep toe pump and they can choose what color nude suits them best.

Pick a colour and let them choose their own shoe.

Nude shoe – it blends well

In the minority here, but I’d honestly prefer gold. Talking to your ‘maids will probably help though.

Nude wont work because some of my Bridesmaid or Best Man are a bit dark. We’re at a stalemate really.

SKyAlex: I’ve never heard of darker complected girls not being able to wear nude shoes… That makes no sense to me lol I think nude would be really pretty with those dresses!

well that’s why it’s my vision for my wedding. And when you’re of African decent and dark, all colours don’t work well.i.e. Nude isn’t actually nude on us. It just looks beige. So nude is out

SKyAlex: I was also going to suggest nude. I am darker and some of my girls were very dark and they all wore nude shoes with bright fuschia dresses. I also let them pick though.

I would do gold or silver. I think black will look too harsh with all those bright colors.

I always love the sparkly blingy dressy shoes…they match with everything ..plus they can usually wear them again…
These have a clear mesh so its not exactly a “strappy sandal” and a full back

You really could do any colors that you have mentioned, but I guess it depends on the actual look you’re trying to have.
I had my Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man get a nude shoe, as their dresses are a darker blue and I thought it would be best compared to some other colors out there. But, since you said nude is out – I’d go silver.
