Wow, your dress is beautiful! If it were me, and you really don’t want to wear the first ones because of the height (because those are my first choice), I would choose the second ones. Thong sandals ALWAYS give me blisters though, and there’s no way to avoid it with foot petals or something.

I love the Nine West Joju’s! They’re a very popular shoe amongst brides. πŸ™‚ I wear tall heels (many 4") all the time so I guess I’m used to it but these shoes often get reviews that state they are pretty comfortable. You can always opt to get a pair of taller wedges to change into for the reception like those platform flip flops for comfort. I’m not a fan of the other 2 choices actually. But here are some other options for you (free shipping/free returns):

meelahj,

Before I even start commenting on the shoes, you look beautiful in your dress! I can only imagine what you will look like on the actual day-of. It really accentuates your neck and collarbone area as well as your back. I wish my back was as defined as yours.

I fell in love with the silver satin version of the Nine West shoes you posted. I found them on clearance at Macy’s and it was a pity that they were so high for me as well. They weren’t comfortable at all and had they probably been lower and slightly wider, I would definitely have those as "The Shoes".

ooooh…. those shoes are GORGEOUS!  if you’ve got your heart set, then try insolia inserts + foot petals (cushions for the balls of your feet).  i have a pair of 4" heels that were really uncomfortable, but tried insolia and after a little bit of futzing (you really have to get the positioning right), i can now wear them for quite a while in comfort.  the inserts shift your weight off the ball of the foot to the back, which helps with comfort, but also with balance.  my FMIL rarely wears heels, but is going with 3.5" heels for the wedding and will be trying insolia inserts.  with the addition of the foot petals, heels are much more comfy!

you look amazing! i love your dress!

 hmmm…your shoes would go with your scheme, but i see what you’re saying….i dont think it will look crazy though. in fact, it might work out better and be a more obvious pop of color!

 i like the low heel of the "sprinkle me baby" thong sandals, but if you’re not used to wearing something bw your toes that could become annoying too.

are you looking for a high heel so you can skip hemming your dress?

@meelahj:

First, i have to say that you look just gorgeous. And i totally love the first Nine West shoe, but if it’s uncomfortable, don’t risk it. As a backup plan, i LOVE the first pair daydreamer posted. So cute! And sparkly (but not obnoxiously so)! And with a shorter heel!

 

Second, i COVET green shoes for my wedding shoes — would you mind sharing the link to the ones you’re thinking of as a backup plan? I love the red-shoes idea, but i gotta say, green wedding shoes are pretty awesome too πŸ™‚

 Let us know what you decide!

I love, LOVE the red BP shoes…did you dye them? Online, it seems they only come in black or cream. πŸ˜‰

How funny, I am looking for your first pair of shoes right now.  They really are the perfect shade of red.

@meeiahj:

I also found these http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/7392338.html but the price isn’t as friendly and I’m trying to find the deep red color for my BMs becaue they are wearing brown and I thought it would be something different since I have pops of red incorporated into my wedding.
