I am trying to decide on shoes for my wedding and I have looked at all price ranges, but I don’t think I want to spend that much because my dress is long, with a train and I don’t think they will show that much. http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Swiss-Dot-Tulle-Empire-Waist-Soft-Wedding-Gown-WG3438 What is your experience/opinion? I also want shoes that will be comfortable so I am looking for a platform heel or a low stiletto heel and also something I can wear more than just one day. I am thinking of the following options.
Love them, but afraid they will hurt after a night of standing and dancing. Plus, not sure I will wear much again http://www.lordandtaylor.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/en/lord-and-taylor/shoes/geri-sandals
These were immediately comfortable when I put them on, but for some reason I feel like if I am going to spend $70, I might as well spend $75 and get the bow ones I love above
These are probably the most practical in simplicity, comfort and price
And for the hell of it, my dream shoe of almost $200 with shipping in the gold color
Basically, should I be practical and not spend a ton of $$ b/c my shoe won’t be seen much except when I am sitting to dinner?? Help!!!

@mybelle84: To answer your question, no your shoes won’t even be visible so in the grand scheme of things, it really doesn’t matter. I myself am a shoeholic though so it mattered to me LOL!
About the shoes you’re looking at – I kind of shy away from shoes with that strap in the front, they just don’t look super comfortable, and I feel like I’d have a really hard time getting them to stay on! That being said, those kenneth coles are the only pair I’d consider. Happy feet are REALLY important for your wedding day, that much I can promise you!

@mybelle84: I like the Caparros the most, the strappy sandal doesn’t really scream “wedding!” to me. And no, they won’t be visible so don’t stress about it! I spent $250 on my dream shoes and then didn’t even end up wearing them!

I spent $50 bucks on my shoes. They were comfortable to dance in, and they were only shown for a few pictures that I chose to show them in. Otherwise they were completely hidden. Unless you plan to do some fancy photos where you have blue shoes or something like that I don’t think spending a lot is necessary.

I like the middle 2 sandals. I’m amazed at the shoe threads on here and people are spending hundreds on couture shoes for one day! I bought Nine West sling back peep toe at DSW for $50, a shoe I picked out that I know I will wear many times.
