So, I’ve been continuing to stress out about the bridesmaid attire, specifically their shoes. After we chose the black and white dresses from White House Black Market, and since I’d been planning on bold touches of green, I immediately chose green pumps for the girls. And since I want a little bit of a vintage feel, I thought the combination of peep toe and patent leather would be perfect.

I hadn’t heard much on it until they actually bought the shoes this month (I think many thought it was a whim). I haven’t heard rave reviews on the choice. Instead, I’ve heard “interesting,” “a lot going on” and “are you sure??” Alright I can take a hint. And if I changed my mind, the shoes were only $30.
However, I’ve found that I’m not alone!

Darken the shoe and put the ladies in black and white dresses, and you have my wedding (love this shot!).
After finding out that I’m not alone out there with bold footwear choices, my breathing has started to calm down a bit. I know that I need to stick to my gut instincts, but of course I don’t want to be that tacky bride out there sticking her bridesmaids in the equivalent of a dress with a big bow on the butt and puffy sleeves.
To continue setting my mind at ease, I’ve decided to do a little photo shoot with my hubby-to-be. I have a pair of the shoes the girls will be wearing, and a black and white dress (different from theirs, but same effect), I’m going to have S take some pictures of me and then Photoshop them together so there’s five in a row. A tad obsessive? You bet! Nothing short of thorough for this bride. I’ll share the results after the shoot for all of you pondering primary colors.
Will you maids be wearing colored shoes?
