Are you looking to buy them because they are Jimmy, or because you love the shoe itself?

There are tons of flats that are much less expensive (and more ‘wedding-y’ in my opinion) on http://www.endless.com.

Here are a few by Menbur, which is a brand i’m sort of obsessed with, comfortable, stylish and affordable:

I was thinking the same thing last night for these Louboutins (spelling?) I came across! But still at $100…I’d rather just get something Im totally IN LOVE WITH rather than settling for the “replica”. And I by no means mean this negatively, I have purchased plenty of “Replica” Designer bags, shoes, etc. in my day! xo

I really liked these Martinez Valero shoes.  I bought them and they were too big.  I decided to return the shoe (which was expensive anyway) and buy dyeables and put sparkle on myself.  I can’t wait to get them.  They will be cheaper but look like the originals.

I find that Jimmy’s tend to run true to size.  I’m a 8.5 and I can wear 8.5 in Jimmy flats and heels w/ no problem.  

Before you purchase a replica, check out shopstyle.com.  Once the season is over, you @ least get them for a discount.  I Love shoes so I rather save for the real thing instead of buying knockoffs.  Knockoffs sizing varies too widely because of the limited quality control.

Good Luck!!!!

If you are concerned with the height difference with you and your fiance, what about a kitten heel or 1-1 1/2 heel?  Flats may look awkward with your trumpet style gown?
