So my gals are wearing the same dress, a floor-length Bordeaux colored number with a nude underlay. I figure I will likely buy and gift the typical jewelry pieces so that matches, because I think that looks nice.
What I am not 100% sure on is should shoes match? I had assumed yes, but I have one BM who's pretty vocal about not being a fan of any of the shoes the rest of us like, and I am not sure her motivation... if she truly doesn't like them, if she's worried about comfort, if she thinks they are too expensive... I think it may be this if I am going to be honest... (it's not a matter of affording, it's a matter of frugality)
She's also "not loved" other matching accessories that have been floating as ideas, such as faux fur wraps (It's a January wedding, and I am hoping for some outside-in-the-snow photos), and I will add, she's been a bit of a challenge all along... we had more BM dress shopping trips than I can count - more than a dozen. And if I have a single planning regret at this point it's the BM dresses.... I should have just picked and said "this is it" - I wanted to be flexible and have the gals be comfortable, but now I really don't love the dresses... I know this is my fault for not putting my foot down but I wanted everyone to be happy... and now that I am trying to accessorize this dress in a way that I at least like, it's killing me that I am getting so much push back.
I just don't know how to handle it...
