I have been having such a hard time finding the perfect shoes to go with my wedding dress. I really wanted to incorporate some color in the shoes – mint green, or a tiffany blue. We’re having a casual destination wedding to St. Augustine, FL
I’ve attached a picture of my dress, but you’ll have to imagine it in ivory. it’s actually a “special occasions” dress and the website only shows it in pink. My dress is ivory with white lace. My dress hasn’t come it yet and it’s killing me.
I ordered the shoes from modcloth and they should arrive this week, however, I’m starting to have major buyer’s remorse and am thinking they might not look good with the dress. Though they are adorable, I’m afraid they may be too fussy with the lace.
Please give me your HONEST opinion! I can return the shoes for free and start again.HELP!

I love the pop of color, I say yes!

I really dislike them. I think they are too heavy for a beach wedding, and the style in general reminds me of orthopedic grandma shoes.

Sorry but I really don’t like them at all:( I also agree with the PP that they look a bit like grandmas orthopaedic shoes!!

They are gooooooorgeous! But I think you’d need to try them on with the dress before deciding. Even if they don’t suit though, I’d be keeping them!

@Holly77: Ooh….I have to agree with this.

I think they’re adorable, but I also feel like they don’t go with the pattern/lace/whatever on the dress

And this is why I asked for extra opinions! A little harsh with the orthopedic comments (i prefer vintage) I mean, they do have a 4 inch heel after all. BUT, I said be honest, didn’t I? lol
All in all I agree that they’re too heavy for the lightness of the lace. Sigh… well for those that liked them, they’re a size 8 and will be back available on Modcloth in no time!

I think they’re adorable! Before sending them back, can you wait for your dress to come? Don’t let Internet strangers make you change your mind if you love them!

Oh and just to clarify, we’re not actually getting married on a beach. We’ll be up on a balcony overlooking the water.
Thanks for your help and opinions!

I love them too! Where did you find them?
Not sure if they go with the Dress though, maybe try them on together first……and if they dont go…..keep them to use on your honeymoon!

Yes. My shoes are that color, so I may be biased.
