    I personally like the flats for the ceremony and the tartans for the reception!

    @Glasgowbound:  LOL I thought I was going NUTS.  Because I posted my comment and then there was a poll… I was like, wow, I need more coffee.  🙂

    @Glasgowbound:  I think the purple is sophisticated (perfect for the ceremony/heels) and the tartan is fun (perfect for the reception/flats).

    love purple heels. BUT if you have other choice, a white or ivory heel may be better.

    @Glasgowbound:  What color are the floral appliqués on the dress? I think a neutral color (nude or ivory) would be less distracting and bring more focus to your dress. Take my opinion with a grain of salt, though. I’m very much into classic white weddings. Are you carrying a bright bouquet as well?

    @Glasgowbound:  

    I can appreciate brides wanting to add a pop of color with their shoes, but, with a short, very detailed dress such as the one you’ve selected, I would choose high heels for your ceremony — and short, kitten heels (instead of flats) for your reception — both in a color that matches your dress.

    If you want to bring in the surprise of the tartan, I would do it in some way that is much more “temporary” in terms of affecting your overall look for the day. For example, perhaps you could find and just carry into the reception a small, tartan clutch (or perhaps wear a tartan shawl as you’re being introduced), something that you would only be seen and photographed with for just a few moments.

    As for the purple, I would incorporate that into your bouquet if you want to add a pop of purple to your overall look for the day.

    @Glasgowbound:  I thought you just need a pair of shoes to combine with  that ivory gown. Then in this case, i prefer that purple heel and tartan flat which seems to be special in that occasion. Tongue Out
