Stacy and Clinton - we need your help!

What not to wear: Military Style?

I have a poll for you girls.. answer honestly!

Do you think dark pink heels would compliment your man in his dress blues. Not for him of course, but on you with a navy dress?

Here's the story..

I have a very indecisive SIL that is getting married next month. Yes, NEXT MONTH, so we she needs to make this decision like... yesterday. Us bridesmaids are wearing navy blue dresses.. on the short side.. and SIL had originally said she'd like us in nude shoes. Yesterday she called asking how I thought dark/hot pink shoes would look with it along with the same color cardigan. Too cute says I! Not so much says her stepmom and photographer. They say it won't look good with the guys' blues.

I said I would take it to the experts soooo here you go!

We need help!

Not our dress or shoes, but to give you a nice mental image (boards.weddingbee.com)

I think it's sooo cute! It would be great! :) Even with the uniforms. Check out Perfect Palette (http://theperfectpalette.blogspot.com) you can sort through by color! :)

I thinkthey will look great with the dresses. I think that if the guys are in arny dress blues, the dress by itself will just look all monochromatic and blah...as an aspiring photographer, some pop color is always great.....ESPECIALLY for pictures!!!

I think the shoes are great but a pink cardigan might be too much.

Well I would HAVE to say yes :) seems how in my wedding the girls wore hot pink dresses and shoes and the guys were in their dress blues!! Look at my wedding pics and see what you think! I LOVED it

The cardigan you have to be careful with. Make sure it's dainty enough to not look frumpy with the dresses. If not a cardigan, can she find a shawl that would match the shoes?

I agree with Radiant Redhead that the pop of color would be amazing. Without that little splash of color, all that blue will look rather dull.

Plus, dress blues will stand out well enough on their own because of the 2 shades of blue used in them.

I could also ask my sister tomorrow, and then you would have 2 photographers' opinions to argue with! I am pretty darn sure my sis will agree with the shoes!

I asked J and he said he agrees with me and with Radiant Redhead. And that's from an artist, so he knows about colors.
