If you’re planning your wedding, or one of the lucky ladies chosen to stand by the bride on her big day, you’re probably wondering what colour shoes are best suited to pair with beautiful blush bridesmaid dresses.
The simple answer is that most neutral colours work really well with blush dresses. However, there are some exceptions, and there are a few additional colours that can be great options as well.
But we’ve got you covered and our guide will help you to find the best shoes to wear with your, or your bridesmaids, blush dresses.
What Colour Shoes To Wear With Blush Bridesmaid Dresses
As touched on above, neutral and light colours tend to complement blush dresses extremely well. A few of our favourite opinions include:
Nude tones are a classic choice when it comes to bridesmaid shoes. Not just for blush dresses, but just in general.
They’re subtle and elegant, and they blend in seamlessly with similar nude and blush dresses. They’re also very good at making your legs look longer and leaner, if that’s important to you.
A nude heel or pump is a perfect option to wear with a blush bridesmaid dress.
If you really want to embrace the blush, a pair of pink shoes would allow you to do so, without being an exact match. Pale pinks work best, though you could opt for a brighter pink if it suits the rest of the bridal party attire.
If the wedding, or wedding party, is supposed to be a little more glamorous, a touch of metallics can add some glam while still letting the blush stand out.
The shoes can still primarily feature a pink or neutral colour, but consider something with a silvery heel, or a form of silver glitter.
While you’d be more likely to see this the other way around, a nice navy blue suede heel can be worn with a blush dress without seeming out of place. It’s also a solid option of the groomsmen and groom are wearing blue or navy blue suits.
How To Accessorise A Blush Bridesmaid Dress
Your blush bridesmaid dress is likely to be the star of the show, after the bride and groom. So it’s important that they’re accessorised correctly once a matching shoe has been chosen. You want to enhance your overall look, but without taking away from the beautiful blush colour of the dress.
So here are our top 3 tips to elegantly accessorising your blush bridesmaids dress.
Play With Texture
This is dependent on the style of dress, but if it’s quite plain and made of a silk or satin material you can dress it up a little with textured accessories.
For example, a pair of beaded earrings, or something with some detailing, will add an element of texture. It’ll also add a touch of elegance, without being too overbearing on the dress.
Add A Splash Of Colour
A splash of colour can add extra depth to your look, but it is important that it’s done sparingly. Too much colour and you’ll take away from the elegance of the blush dress.
The easiest way to do this is as simple as something like rose gold jewellery, or perhaps a lightly complimentary coloured hair piece or accessory.
Focus On The Details
Although slightly touched on in the previous points, the smaller details, particularly jewellery and hair accessories, can make a big difference based on how they interact with the blush colour of the dress.
So, while you do want to add texture and colour, it’s important to keep it in moderation and ensure the dress still has a chance to shine.
At the end of the day, no matter which colour shoe you choose to wear with your blush bridesmaid dress, the most important thing is that you, or your bridesmaids, feel confident and comfortable.
So, go ahead and have some fun with it!
Mix and match different shades and see what works best for you. And remember, the day isn’t about the shoes, it’s about celebrating the love and happiness of the bride and groom.
Cheers to love and happy shoe shopping!
