    Ok, so I'm having trouble deciding on shoes for my 2 BMs... they're my sisters and they want me to get their shoes. I've also ended up buying their dresses due to having not enough time to order them and I was the one who got in touch with the warehouse.
    All this to say that I've already spent $500 more than I'd budgeted and now I'mg etting their shoes. I love shoes and I'm having a hard time balancing the budget and what I think will look good. I'm being cheap, but it's hard with shoes!

    What is your favorite shoe to go with this dress? The dress is in Lipstick (kind of a berry pink) and the sash is the same colour as the dress. I've chosen silver colour shoes, but I'm flexible.

    D) Kenneth Cole $25

    I think the last one, because it has no bling I might be able to glue a few rhinestones onto the straps...

    Thanks!

        so wait- you wound up having to buy the dresses b/c they didnt order them are they paying you back i would try to have them pay you back if that wasnt the original plan. $500 plus is a lot of $ if it wasn't planned in your budget..

        i vote for the kenneth cole shoes, and their one of the most reasonable ;o) btw i LOVE the bm dresses. the color sounds so pretty. cant wait to see pics!

          Oh crap, I just went back to check the prices on my choice and I was only going to pick #2 or #1 and they are of course the most expensive. But those are my picks and I stand behind them.

          But I agree with Jac, will you be gettig your $ back from the girls? I bought my BM dresses as well, but none of them had a problem paying me back. It was just easier for me to order since I was having them shipped from various places...

            I picked the platforms but I would also go with the t-strap ones too. Love the dress BTW!

              I'm stressed about it... but they're my sisters and they're younger than me. One is flying from Australia and I think both have to pay their own flights... though my father was going to help them. I think both got their rooms paid for though.
              I just feel guilty b/c I know they're already paying so much.
              But so are we!

              I think I'm just going to leave it to them. I sent them the invoice, so they know how much they cost.

              It was a mixture of them taking too long to choose, then me taking too long to choose the colour once they'd liked and tried on the dress I finally chose for them. Standard. :)

              Anyway, my fav shoes are actually #3. My mom doesn't like them and I'm woried my sisters won't either, but really if I'm paying for it, tough! :)

                i totally hear you. its hard b/c they are your sisters. well, maybe mention it to them or your dad in conversation & see what happens. but its def not worth a fight or tension ya know. hopefully it will all work itself out.

                i think #3 are cute. they are reasonable too, so if i were you, i'd get them if thats what you like. and IF anyone says anything about it you can just say "I bought them ;o) "

                I would have voted for the Kenneth Coles or the ones with the lower heel, but that single narrow strap across the toe can be so excruciatingly painful - especially if it's warm and your feet puff up.

                Personally, I don't like platforms, especially when I'm dancing, so I'm voting for the T-strap.

                  I did mention it to my mother and she said "think of how they have to buy their tickets"... or something that effect! How about thinking of paying for a $10K wedding
                  i think #3 are cute. they are reasonable too, so if i were you, i'd get them if thats what you like. and IF anyone says anything about it you can just say "I bought them ;o) "
                  I like it!!! Thanks, J!

                    I love #1 and would totally wear those with MY wedding dress. Where did you find them? Anyhoo, I voted for #1 because I think they would look really cute with that dress too. Good luck!
