I’m having second thoughts in my choice of shoes. I was going the “semi-practical” route by getting shoes that I can wear besides the wedding, but everyone thinks I should get a more formal evening shoe.
Don’t get me wrong, I love these shoes, but now I’m seriously considering buying something sparkly.
Thoughts? Too informal for my wedding? The shoe is Christian Louboutin, style Bianca in beige (matches my tan perfectly). Friends all want me to get something sparkly or a pair of strappy heels. I just don’t know anymore….
What are your thoughts on these shoes? Should I stay away from black though?

I think the style is pretty, its just not a color I like very much. That is a personal opinion on color so if you love it, go with it. I wouldnt care if they are payless or 1,000 shoes, if you like it, you like it.

i say go with what you love they have the super tall stilletoe sparkly heels at charlotte russe for only 30.00 and they can always be worn again!

I think it all depends on what you are comfortable with and whether or not you will be getting any photos with your shoes visible. I had some fairly plain highheels (they were white with a little bit of sparkle) that I wore for my pics, for the ceremony, my first dance with my hubby and my dance with my dad. Once that was over I changed into a pair of skate shoes…call me crazy, but if people are concerned with my footwear, that’s their issue not mine. You need to do what is comfortable for you. Just my opinion though….I don’t have a shoe fetish, nor do I have any sense of style when it comes to shoes, so I may not be the best one to be giving advice

you can add a shoe clip to “dress” them up. Check out Etsy.

You could easily add a shoe clip for some bling.

I would purchase more formal shoes. Although I love Louies, these are not formal enough for your wedding dress.

You should totally get whatever YOU want! Get whatever you picture yourself walking down the aisle in. 🙂

Its your wedding so wear what you want. If you wanna wear those loubies then wear them. If you like the black ones, and black is in your color scheme, go for it. It’s what you want and feel most comfortable in. How formal do shoes have to be under a long dress? And like someone else said, you could always add a clip or something in there.
Stay true to you.

Rather than getting shoes that are really expensive that you “can wear again,” why not get cheap shoes that look sparkly and fantastic but that you maybe will never wear again?
But at the end of the day…if you have the money, get whatever you want and makes you happy.

I really like the lace type. I’t say have a little more fun with the shoes 😉

@julies1949: you read my mind. there are some really cute shoe clips out there.

I say go for what makes you feel most comfortable. If you love the shoe you first picked go for it. If you want something a little dressier what about adding a shoe clip? Then you could remove the clip after the wedding and the shoes are still practical and adorable.

Love the lace from Valentino! I know Asian (looking at your avatar) tend to stay away from black for wedding, but those black are gorgeous! I’m wearing Valentino for my wedding too, so I’m rooting for the black lace.
