Okay brides, it’s time to talk shoe shoes SHOES! Are you excited yet? I am. I love shoes. I own wayyyyy too many shoes, and I still wish I owned more. I’m one of those lucky people whose job requires me to be on Pinterest every day, and I’ll admit I spend a fair amount of my daily Pinterest minutes ogling pretty pumps, fabulous flats…more gorgeous wedding shoes than you can imagine, basically.
So I decided to make a post of the very best, coolest, and most unique wedding shoe trends I’ve noticed over the past year. If you’re anything like me, you’re going to drool over all the pretty picks in the post and get major shoe envy. Choosing your wedding shoes are FUN too — I mean, it’s a great excuse to splurge for that designer pair that you’ve always wanted, but never had an excuse to get. If you’re not going to wear your dream shoes for your wedding, then when can you?!
Anyways, enough of me. Time for the SHOES!

I was recently at a wedding where the bride’s sister (her only sister) was not asked to be the Maid of Honor; rather, the big role went to her BFF, and her sister was a bridesmaid instead. At first, I was like “SAY WHATTTTT?”. I could only imagine how pissed my lovely but feisty younger sister would be if I’d snubbed her of the Maid of Honor role. But a source close to the bride just shrugged at me and told me that the bridesmaid sister in question hadn’t asked her own sister to be MOH at her wedding, so it was no harm no foul. Interestingggggg. This led me to a very confusing train of thought. If I got married and my partner had sisters, would they have to be in my bridal party? If I had an imaginary brother, would etiquette dictate that he would have to be part of the groom’s party? If I had had a sister that was ten years younger than me, would I have to include her? I had so. Many. Questions.
I started to look into this more, and lo and behold…what they say is true. You don’t necessarily technically have to ask your sibling or future siblings to be in your bridal party. (For the record, I think that if you’re close to your sister(s) or your fiance’s sister(s), it’s a great idea to add them to the bridal party, if possible. ) When it comes down to the wire and you are constrained by the number of members you can add to your bridal party, here are some tips and tricks to help you make sure you’re making the best, drama-free choices when asking or not asking siblings to be part of your bridal party.
