i need help! I have my first dress fitting this Wednesday and even though I bought a pair of shoes months ago, I’m realizing now that I can’t do anything to prevent my heels from falling out of those shoes and it’s annoying me to no end! So….I found 2 pairs of Badgley Mischkas (haven’t decided on which pair yet) but my dilemma is whether I should be bold and go for navy and make them my something blue or stick to gold, which is the accent color for our wedding…I’m a more traditional bride but my BMs have been telling me to make a statement with my shoes…so I’m confused.
Please vote and if you can, tell me what colored shoes you wore for your wedding and of course, please feel free to let me know if you prefer the Lacie or the Pearson!!!
Here are the shoes I’m thinking about:-

I’m a total sucker for metallics, so I voted gold! I like the second pair more, fwiw.
Blue was too trendy for me, and I couldn’t find many classy metallic shoes for myself, so I wore satin ivory pumps with a little jewel on the toe.

Stay with YOUR colors. And that’s what they are, are they not? YOUR colors? The something old…..something new…..tradition can be handled in very different ways. Most girls go with the garter being blue.
Also, that blue sticks out like a sore thumb. Is that really what you want, to detract from your gown with an eyepopping blue? Or worse yet, to detract from YOU with those shoes? I think not.

@WYAtocha: GO FOR THE GOLD! I think the gold is so classy and will look great. It’s much more of a subtle pop, which I think is preferable when it comes to wedding shoes. I like the Lacie a little more, but they are both lovely shoes.

Wear what your heart tells you to wear. What the rest of us would wear is irrelevant. So is what your BM’s would wear.
Both pair are gorgeous and contrary to a pp’s opinion, colored shoes do not stick out like a sore thumb. In fact, with most dresses you don’t even see the shoes at all except for going up or down stairs or for posed pics.

I generally prefer blue shoes, but those gold ones are GORGEOUS!

If you are more traditional, you might feel better in the gold. Both look great. I’m not sure how much you can make a statement with shoes unless your dress is shorter. I wore red shoes and the only time people could see them was when I was walking down steps and my foot would reach for the next step. I think it’s rare for people to actually see a brides shoes, unless she’s doing something to show them off.

@BrandNewBride: @HopefulForLittleOne: Thanks so much for all your input, ladies! I was leaning toward the gold more because it’s more me, it is one of our wedding colors and my original shoes were gold mixed in with a little silver (sounds weird, but they were beautiful), but the blue might be something I could wear again and I’ve always been told I never go out of my comfort zone and I should…so, thank you so much for all your input…I’m going to take all of what you’ve said into consideration!

I’m generally a sucker for a rich-colored blue wedding shoe, but I really adore these in gold. Plus, gold is your accent color, so I think it would be the perfect choice!
As for the style, I didn’t even notice the difference in the two at first. I had to look at them multiple times. I think I prefer the second one but they are so close you can’t go wrong with either!

I vote go blue, but I’m a little bias because the Lacie in navy were my wedding shoes. 🙂 My colors were navy blue and light blue so for me it was perfect. I agree with the others though that not many people will see your shoes unless you show them (they certainly did not detract any attention away from me or my dress), so wear what you feel most comfortable with. The gold is adorable too. I’m a shoe fanatic so I showed everyone and made sure my photographer got this photo as well:

@kariebee43: Thank you for your input! 🙂 I really appreciate it!
@kamurp: Did you wear the Lacie all night? Was it comfortable? Love the argyle socks, too, btw! Making FI wear them after seeing your picture!!!

@WYAtocha: They were comfortable for the most part. I’m really a flats girl in my everyday life, so I had them on for about 5-6 hours and then changed into some navy flats. I thought the 3″ heel height was perfect for me, not too high, but enough to give me a lift.
