I really like that shade of blue as well but i think that the only reason that the red is working well with it is because they also have redish colored boquets. You will probably have a harder time matching that shade of blue than you would the black. I think that the red shoes would match well with a black dress if you have red incorporated in their boquets or even their jewelry.

I think its cute but personally not my preference.  I do really like that color blue though.

I’m going to be honest – the first thing that came to mind when I read blue dress and red shoes in Dorathy from the Wizard of OZ!

I like it, especially with the bouquets. The only thing I’d be wary of is making sure you don’t end up looking too american-flagy with the red, white, and blue 🙂

I LOVE it. It’s such a pop. I would have killed to have my bridesmaids in fabulous shoes like that, unfortunately their dress was too much on its own.

i don’t know…my first reaction is “clown.” maybe on a little girl it would be super adorable but i’m not sure it would be sophisticated enough for a woman. that is, the blue with the red. i love the blue by itself with a black shoe! 

if you want to go with the red shoe, i would say black. it’s a great look and i think my girls will be doing that as well.

Red & blue is a very retro look & I have seen it done with several different shades of blue as well (aqua & sky blue are popular with cherry red acccents).

If you like it you like it, there is always going to be someone who disagrees with your choice of decor/venue/dress/flowers whatever, but what matters is that you are happy with it.

I like how the colours pop in the inspiration picture — but I am a sucker for vibrant colours in photography.
