Hey, just wondering what most people do? Are you buying bridesmaids shoes? I have bought the dresses, gonna pay for hair & make up. I've no poblem paying for the shoes too just wondering whats the nom. They will be picking out their own shoes which I'm absolutly fine with. Thansk....

I bought their shoes too. It depends what you want I suppose, i mean if you want them all in silver sandals then maybe they already have a pair each and could wear them, but if it's a specific colour or style you want then i suppose you should buy them.

I was thinking of getting them extra nice shoes and letting that be their BM gift. Or does that sound really mean? I was planning on getting really good nude peeptoes or court shoes for about £100. I know that they like the style of shoes and that they would wear them again.

Im letting them pick their own - told them I would give a set amount of money towards them coz I aint paying for designer sandals if they pick them. But one of them said no she would pay for her own.
