I’m an event planner by trade, so naturally, a very detail-oriented person. I say this because I do realize that I shouldn’t care about bridesmaid shoes as much as I have been, but I do. I’ve found a couple pairs that haven’t worked out for my girls because of size issues or some other reason. I feel like I’m at my wits end with this shoe stuff because I’ve literally looked everywhere; I’ve scanned the stores and web sites of all the usual suspects—DSW, Target, Chinese Laundry.com, Nina brand sites, Zappos and department stores, but zip, zero, nada. Where, oh, WHERE am I going to find the perfect pair?!
Here’s all I want: chocolate brown, 3.5” heel max, preferably satin and peep toe, if possible. Oh, and under $50! That’s not too much to ask, right?! The dresses they’re wearing are also chocolate brown and are short, pretty much right at the knee, so shoes will definitely be on display. My latest thought is to set some parameters and just have each girl pick out their own shoes. Not only would it give each of them a shot at wearing the shoes again, but it’d certainly also reduce my stress level some (however silly it is to be stressed about in the first place!)
The bridesmaid jewelry, on the other hand, is something I’m excited about! It’s mustard yellow to really stand out against the dresses and it’s all is currently being custom made. All the necklaces will be the same but different, if that makes sense. It’ll be somewhat similar to what’s pictured below—emphasis on somewhat. It’ll be part of the girls’ present from me –and a surprise—on the night of the rehearsal dinner, so this is just a teaser photo to get them as excited as I am!
