Choosing the shoes for your bridesmaids is something that is often overlooked, but is a crucial component to the entire outfit. Here are some things to consider before making your decision:
Comfort is key when choosing shoes for your bridesmaids to wear. Think about what your bridesmaids like to wear on a regular basis. If your friends are not big on stilettos, keep in mind that they will most likely be on their feet a majority of the day and the last thing they should be worrying about is their shoes. Opting for wedges or a block heel (or even flats!) won't compromise the beauty of their dresses, we promise!
It's important to keep a good color balance between the dress and the shoes for your bridesmaids. If you are keeping the dress simple, maybe spice it up by having the shoes be one of the brighter accent colors of the wedding, to achieve a cool, unified look. If the dress does the talking, make sure the shoes do the walking and pair it with an elegant nude or other neutral color.
Depending on whether you or your bridesmaids will be footing the bill for their shoes, they should be a healthy price. There are tons of shoes that are under $100 that are perfect for a bridal party, and the best part is that they can wear them after your wedding day too!
If your wedding is a more sleek, contemporary theme, pick a shoe that reflects that. If it's more of an eclectic vibe, maybe have the shoes be different styles but all be in the same color family to get a more personalized style for your bridesmaids. Having the bridesmaid shoes reflect the theme is a perfect way to tie things together.
