I seriously need some help!
My 1st fitting is coming up soon and I can’t find/decide/figure out what type of shoes I want to wear!
My dress is a trumpet style, full beaded lace in ivory gown. In the attached picture, I’m wearing heels from the store that are about 2-3 inches high and I really like the way the dress falls in that height.
My wedding colors are cornflower, white and yellow with touches of black. My bridesmaids will all be wearing different styles of black wedges with cornflower dresses. The ceremony is located outside on cobblestone so I need to find something that is easy to walk in and comfortable.
Can anyone help me?!!?!?!?!?

I wish I could but I am in the same boat as you. I have been through at least four pairs of shoes and plan on returning the 4th I have right now….
Focus on what you DO know: You know you are looking for a 2-3″ heel that is comfortable. You could wear any shoe on cobblestone: wedge or heel.
Do you want a colored shoe or white? I think a blue or yellow shoe that matches your bridesmaids would be pretty.
Try zappos.com ! They let you sort by style or color, and they have a 365 day return policy. : )

because you mentioned cobblestone, I’d recommend wedges… no chance of getting a heel caught between the stones!
I had the best luck looking under “pumps” or “heels” and then selecting the heel height I wanted… a good number of the lower-height ones are wedged, making them easier to walk in. The shoes I got have 1.75 inches of lift, so that’s not too far off your 2-3 inches, I suppose.

Yellow is hard to find and black is….black and would watch your BM’s so I’d go with blue.
What about these
and flats if that’s more your thing

Wearing heels on cobblestones could be an issue. I know; I tried. I needed DH’s help to walk because between the stones and my dress it was difficult.
I would also suggest wedges or, if you’re comfortable needed some help, then go with heels. I think that it’s better to be prepared, but that’s just me.
What colour of shoes do you want to wear? Blue, white or yellow? I love the yellow!

Thank you ladies! I really like what you’ve suggested!

I (actually, one of my bridesmaids) found my shoes!! I was venting to my BM yesterday that I couldn’t find my shoes but could look around and find shoes everywhere for them. Later that night (after hearing what my “requirements” were), she sends me a text saying she’s found my shoes and to check my email.
They are perfect! And the same BM is gifting me her Nordstorms rewards gift certificate of $20 so that they are within my budget!
What do you guys think?

very pretty and will not compete with the detail of your dress. also looks like they will do ok against the cobblestone. Just make sure the ivory matches the ivory of your dress!

Soo glad you found a pair of shoes! They look classy and will be perfect for cobblestone. Yay for happy endings!

@trueblue39: that was my initial fear because i don’t have my dress with me (it’s at my mom’s) and all the pictures i do have of it make the dress look white when it’s ivory. good thing for return policies!
