I like how they are different from the BM's and love the lil flowers! I think I may just have to go on back over and get them :e_whistle:


Ohhh Bec they are gorgeous!! The lady at the bridal shop is trying to sell me some of those as I am marrying bare foot!

My Mum had a freak out about me getting married barefoot, so I have told her I will find a pair of flat sandals to wear hehe. Shes' so funny sometimes.

I can definitely do this for her considering its the only thing she has asked me for and she has donated a fair bit of money to the wedding. That and shes the best Mum ever.

That's so cute, Mel, that it's all your mum asked for.

My sister got angry at me because I changed my shoes to flats at her reception =/ Can't help it, I just can't deal with heals for long! Even small ones!

No one has asked me to do anything special for them on our day....yet.

Really, ouch! My BMs both dislike wearing heels. Therefore we will go with long dresses. That way they can wear flats under them, will be comfortable and I will be close to their height in my 10cm heels :)

I've changed my BM shoes to kitten heel height peep toe wedges. This way the girls can wear them on the beach AND all night at the reception without them being too painful!

Good idea!! My sis aka MOH wants to wear heels as my other BM ist all, she doesnt seem to get that they both have to wear the same, so if BM where's heels too it totally defeats the purpose of wearing them for more height :roll:

when i was MOH for my best friend..... she made me wear this killer heels, to the point I was in tears!!! so i vowed when she is my MOH I am going to find the most painful shoes and make her wear them. However... this will not be happening i am not that mean :p

I will be wearing flats... I have to as FH and I are the same height now so i do not want to be taller then him..... and my BM's are wearing floor length gowns so they can wear flats to.

I guess it all depends on the girl. I could wear heels all night, becuase i wear heels but two of my BM will wear flat sandals and thats about it, I want them to be comfortable and at the same time dont want to buy them two pairs of shoes for the wedding even though i am buying myself two pairs.

Put the deposit on my dress today! 350 dollars down, 1850 to go 8O
I feel kinda ridiculous spending so much money on a dress but I just love it so much! Oh well. I got some better photos today, I'll put them up in my S&T later on.
How is everyone else?
