Bridesmaids Shoes

Curious as to what you other ladies are doing. Our 'theme' is plum with pewter as an accent. My girls are wearing plum dresses with silver jewelry and I'm debating on shoes. Should they be silver, or should they be plum? Is silver too much or is plum too matchy, matchy? (Decisions, decisions)  So tell me, what color are your girls' dresses and what color did you decide for shoes?

    our dresses are navy and at first I had them just wear silver shoes but then I found these on DSW.com and I bought them for each girl:
    they are a champagne color but not super dark

    My girls are wearing charcoal gray dresses with Tiffany blue shoes. I let them pick their dresses but I wanted them to have some uniform so Im having them purchase their shoes from payless. They offer several styles and custom colors. And they are pretty affordable, the girls liked that! I would probably go with a silver shoes for your girls.

    my bm's are wearing lavendar dresses and silver shoes :)

    ETA: they are all picking whatever type of silver shoe they would like. I didn't specify that they all had to match.

    My BMs' dresses were eggplant and they all wore black shoes.  It was a winter wedding.

    ETA: I just asked the girls to wear black heels.  We didn't go out and find matching shoes for everyone.  Several girls wore shoes they already owned.

    The wedding colors are champagne, magenta, and chartreuse (limey green). My girls dresses are champagne and they are all different styles, same designer. The flowers are pinks and greens and I let them pick whatever shoes they want. Some girls are wearing magenta shoes for fun and the others are wearing nude/ivory colored. I think a silverish shoe would look good with your plum dresses.

    My bridesmaids dresses were a very deep purple as well and they all wore silver shoes.  Whatever silver shoes they wanted, whether they were flat or heels, didn't matter to me!

    What color tuxes/suits are your guys wearing?  If black, I'd say black is safe option for BM's shoes and I'm sure plenty of them already own black, so that's an easy choice.

    If not, I'd opt for silver over plum...I'd assume they'll be easier to find and more likely that the BM's could wear them again.

    We had short BM dresses and I asked girls to wear gold shoes. Some already owned them and some bought shoes they knew they'd wear again.  Overall, it wasn't really noticeable that they were different.
