I got these gorgeous red studded shoes back in August for my wedding.
Somehow, the heel got badly scratched. I got them fixed, but they aren’t quite the same. So I decided to get another pair. My wedding outfit is mostly ivory and silver, so why not get shoes to match? So I agonized over it then decided on these hilarious, lovely ivory shoes by Betsy Johnson.
My mother hates them. Says they look like pole dancer shoes.
My FMIL was positively horrified.
I feel like more brides should take this attitude. :p

They are definitely NOT stripper shoes! I was expecting to see some clear 10″ platforms! I personally love Betsey though, and I adore those shoes!!

lol @ the meme
Are your shoes even going to be noticable? No one even saw my shoes on my wedding day, they were just for me! And for 1 picture Your Mother & FMIL shouldn’t be getting so worked up over a pair of shoes. You should wear what you want, it’s your wedding!

I kind of agree with your mother and your FMIL, but given that I won’t be wearing them, it doesn’t matter in the slightest! If you love them, rock them 🙂

@RedPandas: No! They’re going to be under the dress! They’re just for me! And maybe my fiance after the wedding ;p
They don’t match perfectly to the ivory of the dress but they’re reeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaallllllly close. Close enough to where the dress doesn’t look dirty in comparison, which will happen sometimes with white/ivory combos. Even if they did clash a bit, they’re under the dress!!!! And I love them!!!!!

They may look like stripper shoes if you are planning to wear booty shorts down the aisle… a wedding dress? Who is even going to see them!

those shoes are H A W T.
in my opinion, those shoes are unique and spunky. not trashy and cheap like shoes most strippers would wear.

@abc123joanna: from my FMIL’s face, I may as well be wearing a goosefeather bikini with a light-up heart crotch and a sign that says “I deflowered your son!!”
Then again, this woman also has flipped her shit over the fact that my dress is “ivory” rather than “white.” I’m sort of used to ignoring her, been doing so for 6 years. :p
There’s a lot of uniqueness about our wedding! It’s in a restaurant, number 1. Number 2, we have wire bridesmaid bouquets. I’m going to string fresh flowers on them but they’ve got a wire base. Number 3, I’ve got a brooch bouquet.
I think they go with the bling quite well actually. :p

Have a great time and be careful not to accidentally kick your husband while wearing them! 😉
