I think the fuschia shoes may be too much for the turquoise dress. A nude colored shoe would be really pretty with it. Have you thought of that? Aldo has some really pretty nude heels and a good variety of options. Check this out: http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/flag/wnudes/women

Also, I think that while the fuschia and plum and turquoise are gorgeous separate, I don’t know about the plum color with the turquoise. To me, just completely different tones and looks. Have you thought about just doing the turquoise and fuschia with an accent color, like ivory?

it’s hard to say with out seeing everything all together…..The shoes look a bit lighter than the bouquet and if they don’t match I think it would put to many colors on one outfit. I know its very typical but what about silver shoes and place a thin silver ribbon on the bouquet, and play with accessories? Maybe cute fuchsia earrings?

Hm, I have to agree that the shoes don’t really go with the dress. I think it’s that the color is too strong for the delicate turquoise shade, and also that the colors are opposites which is a difficult combo to get just right. I would go with something more neutral… yes, I would have said silver though you already stated that you don’t want that! Ivory or nude might be a good option.

I actually love that look and you are so right about the flowers tying it all together.

I’m not a fan. I think if you had some sort of pink accent (maybe a flower or sash) on the dress then it would look better. My girls dresses are a much brighter turquoise and I let them pick out silver shoes. I probably wouldn’t do silver with your color either but I like the idea of the nude color shoe. I just saw that on a wedding show yesterday and thought it looked great. Good luck and let us know what you decide.

I don’t really think the shoes go with the dress. Especially if it is a very pale color as you said then I think they will just overpower the dress. I like the idea of nude shoes. With your colourful bouquet I think you would still get that pop of colour without it being too much.

@sit1010: Go with your gut. If you want fushcia shoes then keep it. Some people  just dont want to think outside the box. When I went to get my tuxes the guy there tried to talk me out of getting mismatched ties and vest, he kept saying the tie always has to match the vest but in the end when we put the whole look together he realized how nice it looked.

What about one of the lighter flower colors?  I think the problem is the lighter blue and the darker purple and they fight.  Is there a lighter purple anywhere?  Or maybe a darker shade of the blue dress.

I think nude or ivory would work really well. The flowers will pop against the dress so you might not need the shoes to do that. I know what you mean about silver shoes though, I’m not a fan just because they’re so typical. You could also try black or turquoise. Or for something bold- purple/indigo might work better as it is a cool colour like the turquiose (whereas fuschia is a warm colour) and this would maybe tie in the flowers by bridging the gap between the blue and pink. 

Try not to stress too much about it though! If you love the look then don’t change it.

My bridesmaids are wearing extremely similar turquoise dresses. And their shoes are gray(sister), nude (FSIL), and red (for my MOH)! Their flowers will be red. I think you can do it. The pink might be a bit harder to pull off but I don’t think it looks bad by any means.

@notevenclose: agreed, I think the flowers make the difference. I say go for it.
