Hey girls!! So I wondering how are you guys doing shoes for your bridesmaids....Are you letting them pick out their own shoes and they just have to be a certain color or are you picking a shoe out for them and letting them know where to purchase?

    I’m letting them pick their own shoes partly because they are long dresses. I did make one suggestion to them to remember we will be on grass for the outdoor ceremony so stilettos or pointy heels might sink.

    I let mine choose and I didn’t say what color but they all seemed to just go with nude cohesively anyway

    I would let them pick their own shoes and if the dresses are long nobody will see them anyway.

    I want it all matching. 2 bridesmaids is easier though. For the beach ceremony I got them wedges, and for the dinner reception we are still looking for heels once their dresses arrive. We might shop together if the mall reopen. I am thinking to take them to Sam Edelman to try it and buy the one they like. It’s one of the a bridesmaids treats.

    I'm thinking about doing the same thing, so they can just be comfortable. They know what height they can and can't wear and I would also want it to be a shoe they could wear again.

    Okay, I'm thinking about letting mine choose. I was thinking of giving the color and they choose the style.

    Thinking the same thing, I just would want them all in the same color. They can pick the style because I would want it something they can be comfortable in.

    Oh yeah two bridesmaids are easier. I have seven, so I'm thinking of letting them pick the style and I pick the color.

    I just asked my girls to go with something Gold. With the sudden onset of pandemic 6 wks before the wedding the wedding, one of my maid of honors ended up wearing a pair of nude ones and that worked just as well. I let them pick the style and all that because not all of them are comfortable in heels, but some prefer them.

    I'm a big fan of giving a color and letting them choose their own. Everyone's feet are different and what may be comfortable for 1 person may he excruciatingly painful for another. Honestly, my girls wore knee-length dresses and I never once looked at their shoes. I gave the guidelines of gold or rose gold, but I couldn't tell you what any of their shoes looked like on the day lol. Their dresses were a light pink so either of those colors looked good. I've recieved similar guidelines of just a general color for all the weddings I've been in.

    I'm thinking of picking color and they pick style because everyone is not necessarily comfortable in the same heel height.

    Was thinking of doing the same thing because I want all of them to be comfortable. Plus we are going with longer dresses, so their shoes won't even really be visible I'm sure.

    I think giving them a color is a good idea. i kind of didn't do that for mine because they all pretty much chose long gowns that would cover their feet anyway

    This. If I have many bridesmaids, I would probably not even care when the gown is long. They can wear whatever they want.

    I'll put length in to factor too. Thank you for your help!

    I told them to wear whatever nude shoe they felt comfortable in. If you’re dictating a specific shoe, you should be responsible for the cost.

    I agree, I think I'm just going to take the route of telling them the color. They can pick the style because ultimately I want them to be comfortable.

    I told mine to wear anything silver. The dresses were long so you couldn't see them anyway.

    I let my girls pick any silver shoes. I honestly couldn't even tell you want some of them wore and my girls wore long dresses so you can't really see their shoes.

    My girls and I are all wearing TOMS. Mine are sunflower yellow and theirs are navy blue.
    I wanted everyone to be comfy but also match and the plus to these shoes is we can all wear them work after the fact. I’m a big fan of multipurpose clothing.
