@justjade:  are you wearing a short dress? Of not no one will even see your shoes… 

My dress is white… I am wearing silver shoes… 

no one is going to notice your shoes are a different shade of ivory… And even if someone does.. They arent going to come up to you and be like “your shoes dont match your dress… You really ruined your wedding outfit”

I cannot tell you what any bride in any wedding I’ve ever been to has worn on her feet. I keep reminding myself of that when I worry about my comfy flats. 😉

If you have a floor length dress, people will hardly even see your shoes. No one will notice. I wouldn’t care. I’m wearing white shoes with my ivory dress and I really doubt anyone else will spot it.

unless you plan on telling all your guests that your shoes are a slightly different colour than your dress i doubt anyone will notice… or care!
i would hope that your guests will be looking at your face not your feet.

Nope, I won’t care. I’m wearing a shorter dress and am not planning to match my dress with my shoes!

I’m in a tea length dress and my ivory shoes look more cream and are noticably darker than the dress… Until I put them on and then no one can tell because the shoes are in shadow and the dress is in light so it’s looks normal.

I’m in a tea length dress and my shoes are LIGHTER than my dress… you can totally tell but it looks just fine! I think it would be the same with darker shoes.

Two things:

1) this happened to me. I had an ivory dress so I got ivory shoes. But then the shoes were drastically darker and I didn’t like it so I exchanged to get the white color of the same shoes and it a really matched way better. I had read you shouldn’t get whiter shoes than your dress otherwise it will look dirty so I erred darker shoes but for my dress it was overkill. I realized my “ivory” dress was on the whiter side of ivory and the shoes were on the more champagne side of ivory. So for me, I changed them to match. 

2) absolutely no one noticed but me. So if you love your shoes seriously don’t stress out. No one will care or really even see them.
