It may be way too early for me to even be thinking about this but my brother is getting married in about 4 and a half months and I am a bridesmaid. Our dresses are chocolate brown, strapless and tea length and the ceremony will be outside at a gorgeous, historic Spanish estate. Alex (my bro’s super wonderful fiancee who I am so excited to have as a sister) said we can wear whatever shoes we fancy- so I’m thinking strappy sandals with not too high of a heel (to save my feet from all the dancing I will be doing later). I feel the need to plan early because with my luck I will go look for shoes a month before the wedding and everything will be out in my size. Plus I have fairly large (size 9) but really narrow feet so shoe shopping is not the fastest task for me. Here are a few options I am considering, this J. Renee Chili Sandal with a 2 and a half inch heel and some fun sparkly details, a Chinese Laundry slide in bronze or a Nina strappy sandal. Besides trying to keep the cost low since I won’t wear these much, I want to avoid a strap that goes over the top of my ankle since that seems to cut you off at the feet and make you look stumpy. But I’m not sure whether to try to match the brown of the dress or go with gold or bronze. Any ideas?
