  • You should let them pick their own shoes. You don't want them to be uncomfortable or in pain.

    Nope, the extent that you get to dictate what they wear ends at their dresses. Shoes, makeup, hair, accessories, etc, are all decided by then. So just let them choose and problem solved!

    Nope, any shoes they're comfortable in will be just fine. If they already own a pair that will look nice, even better. Leave that up to them/their parents.

    You could choose a neutral colour like black and have them choose any shoes in that colour, or you could just let them wear any shoes they want.

    No one notices BM shoes. I'd pick a color (and possibly a style) and ask them to stick with that. 

    I asked mine to wear black heels. Done.

  • Thanks for all your advice .....as we are paying for everything for the girls from head to toe  think the parents are leaving it up to us just wasnt sure if all should be the same :) x

  • i would make a day out of it with you and the grandchildren. go to the shoe store a place that has shoes for all ages and sizes such as payless or if you have a shoe dept aka shoe show store in your local  mall they carry sizes for children and adults. 

    pick out a color that would work with the dresses and let them try and pick out there own shoes you could also go shopping for the accessories as well for them

    i told my maids any shoe they wanted any size heals or if they preferred flats in an off white or nude color, everyone ended up wearing  heals

  • I would just buy them a comfortable pair of flats in a neutral color that they can wear again. Or allow them to wear a pair of shoes they currently own.
