Why does it always seem when I make a rash purchase based on my feelings right at the moment I end up feeling regret? Mind you, I felt this way about my wedding dress and boy do I not regret it now! It’s about my shoes, please have a look..
My MOH and friend and I were at the bridal salon looking at my dress that came in and my consultant brought me over a pair of Betsey Johnson heels, I’ve always wanted Betsey Johnson shoes. I tried them on and they seemed comfy and also meant that I wouldn’t have to alter my dress lengthe because of the height. Not to mention they would be my something blue and seemed super cute. They kept telling me that I was having this super traditional Catholic wedding and that this would be a little of my personality wearing these shoes, so I bought them!
Now I have my doubts.. I was never planning on wearing heels, I NEVER wear heels (although hopefully I can break them in.. Is that possible?) they are only 3 3/4 inch heels, my colors are shades of purple and ivory, would wearing blue heels clash? Should I have opted for ivory shoes? And now, my FMIL basically hates them, she said it’s not what she expected and didn’t say one nice thing about them.. That’s when I started having doubts.. And my fiancé is only 3 1/2 inches taller so we will basically be the same height..
omg did I make a mistake!? I liked thinking it was different and cute, now I am thinking It may look silly and hurt my feet all day and ruin everything.. Help!

Wilson2Bee: I think they are cute, you should keep them. I never wear heels but I wanted to feel fancy on my wedding day. So I wore them for the ceremony and then changed after to flats. best of both worlds.

Wilson2Bee: If you’re worried about the comfort, get flats or sandals for the reception (that’s what I’m doing). Ask your fiance what he thinks, stand next to him and pose a little. They won’t clash, they’re underneath the dress. They’ll barely get seen. And you needed a something blue anyway 🙂
I think they’re pretty!

I like them! Personally I had a change of shoes for the reception/dancing in case of sore feet and it all worked out fine. Hemming wedding dresses can be pretty insanely expensive too. Remember that 99% of people on the day aren’t even going to see your shoes, and wearing heels should give you a nice posture/silhouette.

Wear some thick socks and wear them around the house while you’re doing housework or whatever. Also consider buying some moleskin for the back heel.
And like other posters said, maybe get a pair of flats for the reception just in case

I think they are cute, but I think the blue will clash. What if you were to dye them dark purple? I don’t know if that would work but it’s worth a shot! 🙂

I don’t see why the blue would clash or what it would clash with. I think they look great! If you like them and they’re comfortble, definitely keep them.
However, if you don’t feel like you’ll be comfortable with them or want there to be more of a height difference between you and your SO then I say return them.
Do what you feel is right for you.

I don’t hate them, but I don’t think the bejeweled bow and dark blue satin really goes with your dress. Which is gorgeous by the way!!! Plus, I’m concerned that you rarely wear heels and these are “only” 3 3/4 inches… giiiiirl 3 3/4 inch heels are not insubstantial!! I think you should look for something much shorter, more comfortable, and a little less bold and blingy. With that dress, I think something more classic would be gorgeous!

Imagine if you were to take pictures with your wedding party. Would you be hiding your blue shoes the whole time? The royal blue would clash with purple. That being said, if you were to wear them, it’s your day 🙂 and no one would care.

Wilson2Bee: No no no! I will not let you return them, they’re so cute and elegant too. They go with your dress as well. They’re definetly a keeper!

Wilson2Bee: I like them and I really love the idea of hiding a little bit of your personality under your dress. It’s what I’m doing with my shoes (also blue) but the difference is I love my shoes and my heel is lower (I also don’t ever wear heels). If you’re questioning them because of you FMIL but really you love them, keep them and wear them lots to practice/break them in but if really you’re questioning them because you don’t love them then return them because there are so many gorgeous shoes out there that I’m sure you can find ones you love

Wilson2Bee: I’m torn because I love your choice and think they are beautiful shoes and a fun pop of color under your dress. I do think you’re letting your FMIL cloud your judgement but I’ve been there so I totally understand.
I’m really torn though because you don’t often wear heels. As a non-heel wearer myself that’s a red flag, even with “breaking them in” I know I’d probably never be comfortable to wear a 3″ heel all day.

I think they’re super cute and you should wear them if you’re comfortable in them.
If your dress is the correct length, no one is going to see more than maybe the tips of your toes when you walk. They shouldn’t show at all during formals etc.
