Help me pick some royal blue shoes for my New Year’s Eve wedding! My dress (Maggie Sottero Karena) is in a different color than the one pictured–ivory with ivory sash (which I may or may not change to a blue or silver sash–thoughts?).
I’m also open to other suggestions! I’m looking for shoes with 3-4 inch heels. My dress is a little too long with 2.5 inch heels and I think I might be able to avoid hemming it if I go with slightly taller shoes. My budget is up to $100.
Audrey. Really affordable but reputable company. Has sparkles and peep toes, which I love. I don’t really like slingbacks very much though. I’d like these shoes with a different back!
Peep toes. Super cute, but bridal enough? Maybe rehearsal dinner shoes?
Zaza. The slightly cheaper version of the shoes below, which are both knock-offs of the infamous blue “Sex and the City” shoes.
I think these are actually a little nicer than the ones above but they’re a little more than I’d prefer to spend at $160.
Steve Madden 1.
Steve Madden 2. Cute ruffle! And I like that the heel is the same color as the rest of the shoe. No peep toe though.

I say Steve Madden 1 or 2. The Audrey’s are nice, but they have a back strap that reveiws have said that the strap will loosen through the day/night and you would have to be continually fixing it or take them off. The other ones seem to busy for your gown. But, I am partial to my Nina Electras.

I love the steve madden ruffles, but I think they might compete with your dress. On another note, the Martinez Valero shoes are so tall! I wear heels every day but I thought I was going to fall flat on my face with those shoes. If you are not in love with a shoe, I say wait to find something that you love!

@Noritake: I love the Nina Electras too, but unfortunately I don’t think they come in royal blue!
@des salazar: I agree, a lot of these are busy. They’re blue shoes I love, but maybe not with my dress. The lace is hard to find something fun to match with.

Love the Steve Madden 2, but I’d be worried about the top decorations getting snagged on the lace of your gown.

@Sapphirebride: we’re dress twins! I love that dress! My dress is also ivory, with the ivory sash. Initially, I was going to wear a tiffany blue sash, but changed my mind when my dress came in and I tried it on. Instead, I’m going to wear tiffany blue shoes as my something blue.
That being said, the Steve Madden shoes are my fave! They’re adorable!

@SunnyPrincess: Ha! I’ll have to watch for your dress related posts to take advantage of the advice!

@sapphire: Kind of off the blue shoes topic, but are you wearing a necklace with your dress? I keep going back and forth!

Guess which ones I pick? hehe.
*edit because I pushed submit too fast: I’m such a fan of blue wedding shoes (obviously)! I say you can’t lose with any of the above 🙂

I am wearing the Maggie Sottero Karena Royale dress!!! Almost the same dress but strapless. I think that because the waist has the diamondy bling you might want your shoes to carry the same idea. Here are the ones I’m thinking of getting.
