Sarah writes: I got engaged 2 months ago and am currently planning our October wedding from 3,000 miles away from where it will be held. With about 4 months to go I am trying to get all the details in order. I have my 2 bridesmaid's dresses (the eggplant color) but I am desperate for help for shoes and a sweater or shawl. Our wedding colors are deep purple, golden yellow and a medium green. The groomsmen are in darker khaki pants, golden yellow small checkered shirt and dark brown sweaters. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!
Alright Sarah! Congrats on your engagement, and way to be on top of your game with the details. Before we get into my selections, I wanted to give you a few tips. First off, I assume you weren't interested in the matching stole for your bridesmaids dress, but in case you are, here it is! As far as toppers, I hit the jackpot with sweaters at Boden, and if you're looking for wraps, Yoox had a huge selection. When it comes to shoes, I'll point out this roundup of yellow flats, and you can check out the few I found as well. If none of these colors are quite right, I'm sure nude or neutral shoes will look fab with your color palette. Good luck with everything and enjoy the planning process! - Robin
