Black bm dresses - which color shoes?

Hey fellow brides-to-be and brides!!! Smiley smile
I am asking my BMs to wear cocktail-length black dresses (of their choice - no particular company), and I’m asking my MOH to wear a floor-length black dress of her choice. [i want them to choose a dress they love and that they can wear again]

Which color shoes should I request that they wear? Black or Silver so there’s less variation in shades? Or maybe Tan? (all BMs have lighter skin, so this would blend in, but there’s probably more variation among shades of tan) Which would they be more likely to wear again?
Thank you in advance for your opinion! Congratulations and happy planning!

    What are your other wedding colors? I'd do something besides black since the dresses are black. Like gold or silver. You could always give them something more general like "metallic" so they all compliment but aren't the same.

    I think black or nude would look great, but since you are getting married in May I would probably do the nude shoes. Black dresses with nude shoes is always classy, plus it elongates the leg line! And a nude shoe should be a staple in every girls’ wardrobe. I’m sure they would appreciate being able to wear the shoes again. Silver shoes to me seems too “high school prom”.

    Daughter asked her BMs to wear any closed-toe nude shoes they wanted. Some wore flats, others heels, and most of them already owned a pair so they didn't need to buy any!

    I would do silver or gold depending on what colors you plan on having.

    I like the metallic heel look. Gold or silver.

    This is a great idea! I think we’ll also incorporate dusty pink and light blue. Thank you very much!
