Flower Girl Shoes... Help!

Those of you who read my blog regularly may remember the picture of our flower girl dresses from this post. The dress is a very simple silhouette with a dark pink sash around the waist. As of now, the only other accessory that I have for each of them is a headband bow that matches the sash. Those are the only pink things that I have them wearing. Lately, I have been doing some online shopping for their shoes and have discovered that a lot of little girls' shoes are... well... kind of hideous. Not only am I striking out when finding something that is somewhat stylish, but also I am worried that I will buy shoes that don't match their dresses, and it will look weird. So, I am considering the idea of pink shoes for the flower girls, so they would kinda match me and my pink shoes. I am a real sucker for colored shoes with a white dress, plus pink shoes would ensure that the dress and the shoes aren't a huge clashing mess. Here are some options :

Those are just a few of the cuter options that I have found. For some reason, I really like the idea of them wearing simple pink flats. I'm just not into big buckles and straps and sequins and stuff like that. I also feel like they would get a lot more use out of cute shoes like these. Especially the older flower girl. Total diva!

So, as far as the whole flower girl shoe issue, what do you think of the idea of pink shoes? I wish I could find some pictures online of flower girls in pink shoes, but I keep coming up empty. Since we all know that I'm not a shoe person, any help, advice or better options would be greatly appreciated!

Pink shoes would be adorable on them! I agree flats are more appropriate for young girls, but that top pair is adorable! I am in the process of finding shoes for my Junior BM, so thanks for the ideas!!

We did ballet shoes. Like the ones you buy at the dance store and dyed them.

Our flower girl was really young [think barely 3], and I didn't want her to worry about trpping or having sore feet. Ballet shoes were the perfect solution!

I love the middle pair. Our flowergirls will be almost 3 at the time so they are going to wear ballet slippers.

Check ebay for some ballet flats and or some other dyeable flats so that you can get the right shade. I have been looking for my flower girl on ebay.

Pink shoes would be great with any dress. I love the first pair.

If you're not a shoe girl - I will be for you! ;)
I LOVE shoes, live for shoes. Well I suppose maybe not that much but try looking for little girl pink shoes on Target.com & also i've seen some on Childrensplace.com (which is where I am contemplating flower girl dresses) :)
Hope this helps.
PS. Love your blog. Just found it today!
