I just found the perfect wedding shoes on J Crew’s website. However, I am not a shoe girl and have never even spent $100 on shoes…and these ones I love are $298. So, to bring me back down to earth from my shoe high before hitting the “Add to Bag” button and regretting my credit card bill next month…how much are you spending on your wedding shoes?

I found mine on sale for $40. I can’t splurge on accessories, because my dress was over my budget. These shoes are perfect and the price makes me happy. 🙂

I spent over $200 on these Kate Spades that I fell in love with, which were originally over $300, but I found a coupon code. J Crew usually has discount codes or special offers right? Try using those!

@soyjoy222: I spent a great deal on my wedding shoes. They were about $600.
However, they are gorgeous and I cannot wait to have an opportunity to wear them again.
I think if the shores are great looking and can be re-worn to fancy events (and you can afford them) then I’d go for it.
Think of how fun (and special) it’ll feel to wear your “wedding shoes” again (since you can’t wear the dress again all that easily).

Well, the shoes themselves cost about $60 but I strassed them with Swarovski crystals so that brought the total up to about $400. Yikes, I don’t like seeing that number!

97 but they were white and I’ll never wear them again. If you’d get multiple uses out of yours I don’t think its a bad purchase. Since your wedding isn’t for awhile I’d wait for a sale in Jan.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
My heels for photos and the ceremony were $95, my flats for the reception were $35 on clearance, and my other flats for the day-after shoot were $40. I’m still in shock at how well-behaved I was when it came to buying my shoes (yes, 3 pairs IS well-behaved when you’re me!). I am a shoe feind. LOL
Edit: I have already worn all of these shoes again now that the wedding is done.

Well I got 2 pairs of shoes. One for the ceremony and one for the reception. Ceremony shoes were $150 and reception shoes were $90.

My wedding shoes were originally $110 but I bought them on sale from DSW for $49.

My pair for the day cost £270 (around $405); they should have been £470/$705 (and we would have paid that), but my dad got a discount 🙂
My pair for the evening (more enclosed with a slightly lower heel) cost £330/$495.
So, grand total of $900! :-s
ETA: I’ll wear both pairs again, a lot, so I don’t think it’s a bad price; but then, I love shoes and have a few pairs that have cost $200-300 in the sale. If you’ll wear them again $300 isn’t that bad IMPO; but if you won’t, it’s a bit extravagent

I bought mine for $35 on amazon! I fell in love with the Nina Forbes and they were $79 in store, but I found them much cheaper online.
To be honest, my shoes were cute and we took some nice photos with them, but I’m really glad I didn’t spend more than that. Pretty much none of my guests even saw them under my big dress, and I spent more of the evening wearing my $4 pair of platform flip flops…no one saw those, either! 🙂

My shoes were originally $350 but I purchased them for $150. I’m a shoe hoarder so I actually had the shoes sitting in my closet for 5yrs waiting for the right dress.LOL

I spent $60 and they were on sale. I just hope they’re comfortable. I couldn’t justify spending so much on shoes that are barely going to be seen and I will only use once. (Although I guess I could dye them…) I actually had a really hard time finding a pair of white satin shoes that I liked!
I would have gone the “statement shoes” route and gotten a pair I could use again, but my family is pretty traditional and probably wouldn’t get it.
They are not my dream shoes but they will get the job done!

I think I spent right around $50 for my red wedding shoes, and I loved them so much on my wedding day!
