Those are really cute and I’m glad to see I’m not the only person who struggled with shoes.  Shoes and accessories have been harder to decide on than my dress. I have now bought 5 pairs of shoes and I’m keeping two, one for ceremony and one for reception.

I bought four pairs total, only to end up wearing the original first pair I bought.

Sigh… sucks to have a shoe fetish! lol

These ones you could wear again- so easy to justify!

I bought like 5 pairs and my mom bought about the same. The UPS guy loved that we were just ordering shoes and returning them on a constant rotation.

I like these, but the pattern may compete with the lace on your dress. I would go with whichever are most comfortable, since you’re the one that has to walk around in them all day! The ivory ones are beautiful too!

LOL I did the same exact thing! 5 pairs total:


The first were a low heel shoe that was very comfortable and looked great with the dress- until I realized that if I went up 1.5″ in height, I wouldn’t have to hem the dress, saving me $$$ (each asymmetrical ruffle would have to be hemmed individually)… that was an easy choice, so that pair was out the window.


The second pair were the perfect height and beautiful… but traditional white with rhinestones, and I had in my mind that while these may be fine for the ceremony, the dress deserved something more fun for the reception…


The third pair were custom dyed in the perfect shade of orange-those were going to be my ‘fun’ reception shoes!


But wait, we were getting married in February! What if there was snow for the 40 foot walk across the street from hotel to venue? I couldn’t walk across the street in heels! Enter the fourht pair, silver sequin boots found at DSW for a steal…


Last but not least, the smartest decision I made in the wedding (outside of the person I married, of course!)… shoe #5: BRIDAL FLIP FLOPS. They were a 3″ wedge flip flop with white rosettes along the toes- adorable and SO comfortable. I picked them up literally on the way to the hotel the day before…. and I practically lived in them. The rest of my shoes basically exist only in pictures. I wore the white heels for the ceremony, but at no point were they visible under my dress. I wore the orange heels for a series of photos, but decided they were too uncomfortable for dancing, so they never made it to the reception. There was no snow so the boots never made an appearance. I wore the flip flops for evvvverything- walking all over the place for the photos, for the cocktail hour, for the reception… and my feet were blissfully happy that night and during our honeymoon.

I don’t feel quite so guilty now that I know I’m not the ONLY bride with more than one pair of shoes!

I started with a navy satin Nina.  They were fab, but the four inch heel and no platform crippled me even during my first dress fitting, so…

I stopped at DSW on my way home from that first fitting, and found a comfy, three-inch heel peep-toe in ivory satin.  They were OK and would have been fab for all-day wear.  But…

Then I decided I HAD to have something with some POP.  So I ordered a pair of peep-toe pumps in a dark ivory (taupe, maybe) satin with a bright teal rose.  The heel height was good, and they had a platform, but they just didn’t fit right.  And they didn’t have the whole funky feel (i.e. BLING) that I was looking for.  So then…

Enter the latest pair (notice I didn’t say LAST – I’m not going to limit my options).  They are blingy and silver and platforms and the absolute perfect height for the hem of my dress to be perfect.  And so far, they’re comfy!  I’m hoping I’ve found a winner…
