Bridesmaid Blues

Okay, I really don't have the blues, just a little bit of a dilemma. I'm going to be a bridesmaid in a wedding this October. Unfortunately I'm not in the same state as the bride, so I'm like the last one who gets any of the details of what I need to get for the wedding. So far I've only gotten the dress and its a pretty yellow dress with a brown sash. I bought it this past February. This morning, she called and told me what kind of shoes she wants all of us girls to have. So happens, the bride likes this special brand of shoes which is slightly expensive and she wants it in Chocolate brown- not just brown, but chocolate brown (I personally can't tell the difference). Anyway, I have been looking all day for this brand in brown and have come up with two problems. 1)The brand is not that popular and its kind of out of my budget. 2)Brown is not a common color in dress shoes. In fact I have not seen any brown dress shoes yet. Black, yes. Silver, yes. Gold, yes. Bronze, yes. Brown, no. Since I've gotten home, I've been all over the net looking for places with brown special occasion shoes in the bride's favorite brand. I hope she doesn't go bridezilla on me if I cannot find a shoe that matches her criteria because I refuse to pay over $100 on shoes that I'm only going to wear once. I don't have that kind of money to throw around.
