Red shoes??

My bridesmaids will be having black knee length dresses, and I thought it would be cute if they wore red shoes like me with their dress for a little splash of color.  Well they all agreed on the dress this weekend (thank god), but then when I mentioned the red shoes...they all started wispering and talking sh*# about the idea.  They said they would never wear red shoes again in their life if they bought them. WTH?  Totally bummed me out :(!!  I though it would be cute and fun and add a little something different, but now I'm not sure.  What do you guys think?

What!!!???  They'd never wear red shoes again???  I own...let me see, at least 5 pairs that are red, not to mention my sexy RED pumps I'm wearing under my gown :)


I love shoes, especially colorful, sexy and classy shoes.  I love the idea of you all wearing red shoes.  So cute and original.  If you really want to appease them, I still think the contrast of their shoes with your beautiful red shoes would be pretty.

I personally like the red shoe idea, but I also hate buying things I know Im never going to wear again. If you really want them to have them though, would it be possible to help them pay or maybe even buy the shoes for them? They might not feel so against it if they didn't have to hand over the cash 100%?

Do you guys think it will match and look nice with the black? 


They even started making jokes about being Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz! I was soooo irritated!!!  I have not been a bridezilla in any way, and by giving them a short black cocktail dress that they can totally wear again, I figured the least they can do is pick up a cute pair of heels to wear for a little while.  I don't care if they go to Target or payless if they want!  I must say I was really disappointed with my BM on Sunday.

Maybe you could find reasonably priced red shoes and buy them for your BMs?? Then, if they don't wear them again, who cares! It's your wedding and if that's the look you want..go for it! I LOVE the idea and will probably do the same, myself!


These are $34.99 from shoemall.com


Maybe you could find photo 67852-1

A friend of mine is planning to have her girls in black with red heels.  The guys in black suits/tuxes with red chucks.  I love the idea.  I love weddings that are personalized.  I really appreicate when I see things that are unexpected but done tastefully.


Seriously, Dorothy had RUBY sparkly shoes, not Red...lol!  I would have been irritated too Combes2be!  If you really want the red shoes, then ask them.  Its not like you're asking them to wear a garbage bag.  Just think, you're helping them by adding some spice to their wardrobe....which, in my opinion seems like its much needed considering they wouldn't wear red shoes at their own will LOL!!!

Okay well either way, I for sure am going to wear red shoes...so now I need some help searching for the perfect shoe.


I'm looking for a 2-3 inch, cranberry red, perferably satin I think, maybe peep toe or anything sexy.  Also, since my ceremony will be on grass I think I need a wedge or a thicker/chunky heel.


TIA for the help girls!

first of all - your bridesmaids need to suck it up and wear what they're told :) its your wedding and they should be honored to be in it .


second, i think any bridesmaid should be psyched to wear something as classy as a black dress and red shoes as opposed to some random pink moomoo ??!!! where do they get off having issues with that ?? ( maybe you should switch to pink moomoos and see what they say :)

At least you picked red. My BM have to find gold pumps to wear, and 3 out of 4 of them are total tom boys! Good luck, to me and you!
