With tea-length bridesmaid dresses being all the craze, brides are focusing more and more on what their maids will wear on their feet. Of course, the dress is most important, but the shoes, oh the shoes! If you don’t want a matchy-matchy look, you’ll probably have to get a little creative in this department.
My lovely sister-in-law is planning a July 2010 wedding, and the topic of shoes was brought up recently. I thought about it for weeks and have finally come up with some ideas.
Here's a little background info: She’s going with an airy sea glass color pallete with a little bit of blush thrown in for accents. Bridesmaid dresses will be tea length (not this exact dress) and in a light shade of ice blue.
Solution: Metallic shoes are always an option, as they can be considered a neutral color. These first two pumps would bring in a nice warm shade of pink and gold to the mix. I also like the second two strappy heels because they’ll keep the focus on the dress. Because these are made with such a small amount of material, you’ll barely notice your girls have shoes on at all! Finally, the last few selections have more of a classic look—a blush pink or ivory pump.
And don’t forget a cute pair of flip flops for later in the evening!
