    Hi FFA! I am looking for advice on what shoes to wear with [this bridesmaid dress](https://imgur.com/a/yxP0CWB). This pic is pre-tailoring. It has a slit in the back. [I think this is the same dress in a different pattern](https://www.bhldn.com/bridal-party-view-all-dresses/melinda-dress/productoptionids/76638615-b258-4703-a4f2-e7e6c0af39f5). It is for a mid-september wedding in the midwest at a vineyard. The bride recommended wedges or flats over heels, since we’ll be outdoors some of the time, but otherwise said we could “go crazy.” I am based in the U.S. and the budget I set for myself is $75, maybe up to $100 for something I would wear again.

    1. Any recommendations? I prefer wedges, as flats tend to cut up my heels, but I’m a little bit weary of wedges becoming dated lately and I’m really not into glitter/rhinestones/bows which are coming up a lot when I look through bridesmaid shoe selections. I’m a MOH so I’d really like something pretty comfortable to allow me to run around helping (I have wide feet so I do ok with Clarks, Naturalizer, and Camper usually). I usually go for platform wedges — [I love these but they are over my budget](https://www.karida-shoes.com/betta-nude-satin-high-wedge-heel-sandals.html)– but I don’t know if that style is too much of a statement for this context? It’s not my day so I want to just wear whatever seems most appropriate, but I try to avoid purchasing items for a single-wear, meaning I’d like to get something I would wear again if possible!
    2. How long should the dress be relative to shoe height? I’m not sure how to figure that out and I’ve found conflicting information online!
    3. I’m interested in the possibility of block heels– anyone have good or bad experiences wearing them on a lawn? I feel like they would not have the same issues as stilettos in grass, but I’m not totally sure!

    Thank you!

    I have two weddings coming up in October, so I’d love some feedback on my dresses!

    Both weddings I’m attending are for my boyfriend’s family and friends in Western Mass. From what he’s told me, they will be pretty low-key. The first is my boyfriend’s aunt, and I’m 99% sure I’m going to wear [this floral jacquard dress](https://www.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/eliza-j-floral-jacquard-dress?ID=2970343). Somehow, I caught this when it was on super sale for $62, and it fits like a dream! The second wedding is for his friends who are our age (23-25), and I’m thinking about these four ASOS dresses to try out:

    [One](http://us.asos.com/asos/asos-design-bridesmaid-delicate-lace-pencil-dress-with-embroidered-flowers/prd/8874681?CTAref=We%20Recommend%20Carousel_13&featureref1=we%20recommend%20pers)
    [Two](http://us.asos.com/asos/asos-design-premium-short-sleeve-midi-dress-with-heavily-embellished-bodice/prd/9276570?CTARef=Saved%20Items%20Image)
    [Three](http://us.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-beaded-backless-midi-dress/prd/9882160?CTAref=We%20Recommend%20Carousel_6&featureref1=we%20recommend%20pers0)
    [Four](http://us.asos.com/asos-design/asos-design-3d-embellished-crop-top-midi-skater-dress/prd/9927051?CTAref=We%20Recommend%20Carousel_2&featureref1=we%20recommend%20pers)

    I’m planning on wearing these [satin rose gold heels](https://www.target.com/p/women-s-ema-satin-high-block-heel-pump-sandal-a-new-day-153/-/A-53418076?preselect=53277220#lnk=sametab) for both occasions, and possibly a nude/taupe clutch. Any opinions and suggestions for other dresses/accessories are welcome!

    I’m attending a wedding at the end of the month in SoCal (so relatively casual attire) and I’m on a pretty tight budget – I’m planning on wearing [this wrap dress from Topshop](https://m.us.topshop.com/en/tsus/product/clothing-70483/dresses-70497/ponte-wrap-mini-dress-5734504?bi=0&ps=20) and was considering styling it with a simple collar choker similar to [this one](https://jenny-bird.com/products/yaya-choker-hps?dfw_tracker=33360-28144121041&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIxKigzpjZ3AIVg_5kCh2P0wi2EAQYAiABEgIT3PD_BwE), some basic stacking rings, and [these press-ons](https://staticnails.com/collections/all/products/naked) from Staticnails. Because I tend to be an ankle-boots-for-all-seasons kind of person, I only own one pair of (non-boot) heels, which are [these](http://us.asos.com/asos/asos-speaker-pointed-heels/prd/6049088). My question is, would they be flattering with the rest of this outfit, or is there something out there that would be more stylish/trendy? Same goes for the jewelry – if I pair the dress with simple jewelry, am I kind of dressing it down? Since I rarely dress up I’m worried that my choices tend to be a little too conservative when I could be using this as my chance to feel all shiny and beautiful.

    Maybe this would warrant its own post but just in case, I’ll ask here!

    Does anyone have recommendations on where to look for a courthouse appropriate wedding dress? Not attending as a guest but as the bride! ☺

    I’ve looked around and can’t seem to find anything I like. I hate the business attire looking sheath dresses or the all lace sheaths with sleeves and vintage lacey tea dresses aren’t my cuppa.

    So if anyone has any ideas that aren’t BHLDN or David’s Bridal, I’m all ears!
