    I got a cheaper pair of new ones, but I’m not really into designer shoes or anything.

    I bought a new pair from Zappos. I don’t know that they were discounted, but they were reasonably priced and fell within the budget I’d allotted.

    Still debating. 

    I just ordered some heels from Nine West, since I know they will fit and were on sale (very good sale!). If they don’t work, I may get something else or get the same shoes in a different color. Either way, I’d wear them again for something down the road.

    I have bought a pair of wedge sandals to wear for the reception/dance if the heels only work for the ceremony… they’re the same as ones I weart almost every day to work, but in a cream/ivory color.

    I got new shoes from Journey’s that were $40. My wedding was in the desert so I just had a simple wedge!

    I bought a new pair from DSW, but a few months before the wedding my feet got fatter and I could not wear them.  I ended up buying a cheapy pair from Target (they were on clearence and everything!) and wore those.

    I bought new shoes and like PP, got them online at Zappos for a reasonable price. They are just fancy shoes, not designer shoes.

    I got new shoes. I love shoes, not buying new ones wasn’t an option.

    I bought blue/ purple-ish Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, they’re perfect for my wedding ‘look’ and I’ll wear them like crazy afterwards! Not to mention they’re insanely comfortable.

    babycuddlebee:  I had two pairs: full price Jimmy Choos, and then discounted Gina’s ($430 instead of $760). Shoes were very important to me as I’ve been shoe obsessed since I was tiny and bought my first pair of Choos at just 15!

    Both are pairs I’ll wear again as they’re both in a neutral colour (silver)

    Discounted new shoes, from 6pm.com – they were Calvin Klein flats which I embellished for the wedding.

    I’ll use almost any excuse to buy new shoes.

    babycuddlebee:  awww thank you! It really was the best day/weekend ever!! It was just outside of Joshua Tree. I’m hesitant to post stuff on the ‘bee just ’cause I’m pretty private like that, but I can DM you a link to some of our previews if you want!
