There's really no issue at this point, I'm just trying to get some opinions on whether this would be out of line to ask of my bridesmaids…So before we went bridesmaid dress shopping I asked each of my bridesmaids (separately) what would be a good budget for them. My bridesmaids were very generous and gave answers from $500 to $250. I told everyone that the budget was $225, that I would like them to pick the same dress, and I gave them four different colors. We ended up picking a dress that was on sale for $89 (yay!) and everyone loves it so all is good there.
However, a few months down the road, somebody brought up the topic of shoes. I would strongly prefer that everyone would wear shoes that are the same color (either silver or cream). However, almost nobody has shoes of either color! Is it out of line to ask my bridesmaids to buy a pair of shoes of their preference that are silver?
