After local shoe shopping + online shoe shopping, these are the 2 “shoes” I have narrowed it down for me wedding. Some things you should know…..I have size 10.5, narrow feet. They aren’t easy to shop for. And I NEED to wear flats. I have pain in one of my toes when I wear heels for any length of time (this is sad because it was tolerable when I was younger, but UNBEARBALE now). My shoes will be hidden under my dress- and I would getting them in black (see dress) to compliment the black grosgrain sash I will have. I’m having a super hard time deciding between the “booties” and the shorter slippers.
Thanks for you help!

I like the shorter slippers. The booties make me think of the movie “300” for some reason. Do you absoloutely need to have ballet shoes? Because you could probably get.some cute black flat Mary Janes if you need the strap.

@lil_possum: no, i don’t absolutley NEED to have ballet slippers or whatever. If it was up to me, I’d be going barefoot. Shoes make me feel clautrophobic in the first place. I wear flip flops all summer long. I have never been a shoe girl. I’m a hand bag girl.
The “musts” in my wedding shoe are:
something that doesn’t make my feet look large, something easy to walk in for the day/night and something that is comfortable.
biggest problem with a lot of cute flats? the insides are made of ridiculousy non-breathable material. I’m not wearing tights or nylons with my shoes, and don’t want to have hot and sweaty feet all day. A lot of summer brides go barefoot or flip flop it after the ceremony- and if my feet aren’t even going to be seen…..well there’s no reason to feel sweaty and uncomfortable.
Also- my feets were a solid 10 pre-pregnancy. They stretched a tad. They are somewhere in between a 10 and eleven- it’s VERY hard to find a perfect fit for my feet.

@MrsEME: What about some nice peep toes? You would get the airconditioning of open toed shoes and a lot of them.can be cute. Its hard with wedding shoes because I sort of feel like the shoes “should” match the dress and theme, but its hard finding something cute and comfy that doesnt cost an arm and a leg.

@lil_possum: I feel ya- I’d love for something to match my dress. I went shopping with my mom today and found a great pair of Jimmy Choos that I tried on- they absolutely went with the dress, but I couldn’t decide if they would be comfortable for an entire day. And ultimately, I also decided I should be shot if I spent $525 on a pair of shoes (but I’d have no problem spending that on a handbag LOL)!!
My mom is fashion diva- as in her whole closet is so full and she rarely wears anything more than once- you’d think the paparazzi was following her (fact: they are NOT)…she knows how hard it is to find shoes for my feet that are actually wearable….and even she, being the fashion diva she is thought these ballet slippers were cute, especially since they won’t be seen. She was just having a hard time deciding which pair she like more- since she liked them both. And so am i.
I soooooo wish I was one of those girls who LOVED shoes, and that had cute small feet that LOVED shoes! I envy those ladies sometimes!!!

@MrsEME: I think they’re both cute 🙂 but you sound like a flip flop girl like me, have you thought about a dressy pair of flip flops? I was toying with these from Zappos:
That second one is a litttllleee 11 year old girl-ish but I bet with your dress (which is gorgeous!) you could pull it off.
