But I am probably too much of a control freak to let this happen. Then I saw a wonderful photo of bridesmaids in little black dresses like mine and gold shoes. VERY CUTE. (And I wish I could figure out where I saw that picture...)
But in an effort to help out with my girls' budgets (I'm not the only one feeling the stress of unemployment!) I think we will go with black. I keep telling them that I love peep-toe shoes, but I will not be picking an "official" shoe. I'm sure they can do a lot better job (and feel a whole lot more comfortable!) picking their own shoes! Look at this great shoe my bridesmaid Jessica found by Steve Madden - and on sale!But as my tallest bridesmaid, she is waiting to see which groomsman she gets paired up with so she doesn't tower over them in a shoe like this. :) Three of my seven bridesmaids most likely won't be wearing heels - two for medical reasons, and one because she is 11 and can't walk in heels yet and doesn't want to try. :) I'm thinking something more like this for them:
I think those are just so sweet, but the final choices remain to be seen. What shoes will your bridesmaids be wearing on your wedding day?
