Okay, so here’s the dress:
Initially I wanted the girls to wear a strappy sandal like in the pic, but the BMs would prefer a close-toed pump for comfort. I’ve narrowed it down to one shoe, but it comes in so many colors! Which to choose? SN: We only have one real wedding color (the shade of blue pictured in the dress) everything else is mostly white with shades of ivory and blush.

I like the magenta satin as a pop of color. But the nude is also pretty cute.

tbh it really depends what ‘look’ you’re going for….

Nude or champagne … or magenta if you are looking for an unexpected pop of color.

Be an awesome bride and pick the nude so they can actually wear them again with another outfit. My second choice would be the champagne, third would be silver. I really like the strappy silver sandal she is wearing in the photo but then they would need to get pedicures so I get why they want close toe.

I was thinking the pop of color would be really fun, but not all of my BMs are adventurous when it comes to color. I’ve been trying to push a couple of them out of the “neutral zone” for years. Lol
I’m not really going for a certain look, just what looks best. It’s like I’ll get one idea, then I’ll see some amazing color combo on pinterest and everything goes out the window!
Looks like nude is coming out as the winner. I would like a shoe the girls can wear again and again. I have a similar pair of nude pumps by Madden Girl and they are so comfy and go with EVERYTHING!
Thanks everybody for the input 🙂

I love the nude, and best of all they could wear them again.

I voted champagne satin, though I like the nude color better. I just don’t like patent with a flowy fabric.

I’m having my bridesmaids wear nude shoes.
I like the magenta ones though too!

@tabbikay: This is one of my colors too! (Malibu?)
I’d say the nude patent or the silver glitter. The magenta would really pop, but it would draw attention away from the dress.
My BMs are in Guava from DB, with the malibu sash, and they will all be wearing nude patent Steve Madden flats.

@navybride0428: This color is cornflower, I liked malibu but Fiance specifally chose this shade of blue because the others were “too gray, too purple, too green, too dark, etc.” It’s the only input he’s given this entire time. Lol
Your bridesmaids are okay with flats? I suggested flats once and one Bridesmaid or Best Man threw a tantrum about how flats hurt her feet and how she doesn’t want any “stupid short heels.” She LIVES in heels and the other 3 girls pretty much never wear them.
I’m hoping this 3in pump will work well for everyone.

@tabbikay: I would be all for my BMs in heels, but my Maid/Matron of Honor was concerned because she had bad foot problems and can ONLY wear flats. So I was going to have her in the flats, and the other 2 BMs in nude patent heels. But then I also thought about my little sister (also a BM), who is 13, and not use used to wearing heels, so I just decided to go with flats for everyone since it would look weird to only have one Bridesmaid or Best Man in heels lol.
Plus I have an advantage of being a little taller in my kitten heels 😉 I’m the tallest out of my Bridal Party (excluding the men), but not by much lol.
And that’s kinda low for your Bridesmaid or Best Man to do 🙁 It’s your wedding after all! If you think flats will go best, then she should deal with it since she’s not the one getting married 😉 Just let her know that even though she’s used to wearing them, the other girls are not, and it would look weird for her to be the only one in heels. When it comes down to it, it is 3 against 1 and I think having 3 happy BMs overrules 1 unhappy one 😉
