since it will be hot, i've asked them all to put their hair up. obviously the one with short hair won't beable to... should i get them a hair flower that is optional? or should i just forget about it? i want to get them some sort of accessory and i'm running out of ideas. theya ll wear flowers/bows/headbands a lot. WDYT?

    Shoes - I love the one with ruffles (black), but those shoes are really high.  I would double check with your girls that they're okay with 4" heels.

    Acessories - The headband with the flower is super cute, but make sure the flower isn't TOO big.  Also check to make sure the girls are comfortable wearing a headband - I know I personally have a hard time with some of them due to pressure.

    tygirl-3 of us already own those black heels and the rest wear high heals all the time:) we're good on that. i did ask the two people with the shortest hair if they are ok with wearing headbands and they said yes. :) i think i'll make the flower optional but i think atleast 3 of them want to wear it.

    you think the black heels are good or something summeryw ould be better?

    If 3 of them already own the black, I say stick with it.  Plus, you can always wear black after the wedding with other stuff!

    I say the black shoes if they're all fine with the height. (HAHAHA, 3 of them own the same pair?!) Really, who wears white shoes outside of weddings that often? Black is considered a neutral and I don't think it necessarily isn't "summery" considering the great pop of green from the dress.

    Hair band is cute, just ditto Tygirl that they flower isn't too big.

    LOVE that first bracelet cuff of the black beads! It's chic! I'd kinda like one for myself. :) Where'd you find it? I don't like the second one as much, the metal feels a little too rock 'n roll.

    That bracelett is from charolotte russe. its 4 bucks i think.. A steal right? I think one of them have it though.. hahaha is that bad? do yout hink it would look nice?

    also- one of the girls got them, then i bought them, then another girl has some and they look like them.. and one of the girls said, I think i have those... haha. I am not forcing them to wear the same shoe, just the same style/color.

    I think white shoes would be more summery, and I would say no to hair accessory, as girls  can get picky about how their hair looks/how big the flower is, etc. You want them to all be comfortable.  Love the chunky silver bracelet!

    I agree with mergator. The white would be more summery and bright and happy. I don't really have an opinion on hair stuff or jewelry, except that maybe some people won't want to put things in their hair? I don't know.

    My vote is for the black shoes - love them, love the look with the dress, and perfect that some already have them.  I also love the first, beaded bracelet. 

    Hair things are really tricky - you could mix it up and do the hair thing for the ones you're certain want to wear it and the bracelet for others...or both for all and give them the option to pick.  Just some ideas.

    I think for a summer wedding I like the white better but if 3 girls already have them for convience I would just do the black to save some money. 

    KST- I totally wear white shoes, pending the outfit if they go better I wear them.

    I love the flower headband and its something I would wear again usually before the braclette but that depends on your BMs and what you think they would get more use out of. 

    I love the fact that you are doing high heels.  I work in a bridal store and all my brides don't want to do high heels for them or the BMs.  I think they are sheek and love that you are going that route.  :)

    I like the black better, those are too cute! And I think if your girls already wear headbands, then thats a good idea. But I agree with Tygirl about the size of the flower. You don't want it too big, my opinion, and maybe you do want it big! Good luck!

    I think the black is good for the convenience factor, but honestly, I think the white looks better.  The green of your dresses is so apple-y, black seems weird to me.  But that's totally just my opinion.  I do think that black accessories would help tie in the shoes though.  As long as all the girls are cool with headbands, I think your choices are great!

    The white is more summery in my opinion, but if they all have the black shoes, then stick with it :) helps out some girls

    I think the black looks better w/ the dress.  I like all the accessories, but I think you should let the girls do what they want w/ their hair, head bands or not.

    I prefer the white.

    If they already have the black, then I'd go with that b/c it's not that big of a difference either way.

    I also wear white shoes in the summer - in fact I wore a new pair last weekend w/ jeans (strappy floral sandals from Born - love).  I have 3 more pairs of white sandals in my closet.  KST - you should get some.  :)

    i thought white would look more summery too but some of my girls told me that white looks like 80's white trash.... haha. and i wouldn't know what color of jewelry to go with.

    i think black will help it feel a little more formal than just summer dresses with white shoes. :) and plus most of them have a black peep toe so most wouldn't have to buy anything.

    that headband was really just to show a flower in their hair. i couldn't find one that i liked. i'll try to keep it simple. Also, the headband/flower will be completely optional but 2 or 3 had said something about wearing a flower in their hair so i figured i'd just supply them. :) so everyone agrees that those beaded braceletts will look cute? yay!

    Some white pumps can look 80s... some look really now, but it's a fine line.  What I had in mind was white strappy sandals, like these...

    If you did white shoes, you could do white accessories, but also just as easily do silver accessories.  They don't need to match, just go.

    Oh, and just b/c I wanted to share -
