What color bridesmaid shoes?

fluffybutt

Hello, I am the maid of honor in my friend's small wedding. It's actually going to be at my house in my backyard and basement. Ok, so I had planned on getting some dyed strappy sandal heels to go with my dark purple (lapis from David's Bridal) dress, but now I'm wondering if I should do silver instead? Are dyed shoes considered dated?

Do whichever you want. Keep in mind that if you are going to be walking on the grass, that heels can sink down into the soil and be ruined. I would think that the dyed fabric would be more easily damanged too.

I ended up finding some really pretty silver shoes that I just love! Thanks for the help, sheilajoyce.

There are some clear plastic heel covers you can buy -- they were mentioned here - don't recall the name. But anyway, they just slip over your heels, giving you a bit more width so you won't 'spike' the grass with every step, and also keep your heels from getting ruined. Might be worth looking into --

I have them and they do work great. They come with a little case, too, so they don't get your pocketbook dirty. The ones I have are called Sole Mates. But there are other brands, too, including new ones that weren't available when I bought mine, so there may be even better ones.
