I wore white leather sandals, does that count? I like the colorful ones, but my husband was like, “um that’s weird” so i went with white. But, sandals b/c they needed to be hella flat as I’m already 1/2″ taller than him.

There’s no pic attached though. And i like both looks…whtie and colored. Ok i just like shoes, how’s that? =]

I’m wearing shoes that are ivory-the same color as my dress. I really wanted to do a colored shoe, but since my dress is tea length, I was having trouble finding the perfect shoe. In the end, I’m glad my shoes match my dress. I am going to try to find a pair of colorful flats for the reception though.

Even though I love the colored shoe look for pictures and such….ya, I think I am going with white to match my dress. I like the shoes with rhinestones and such and it just looks so much more sparkly in white. But, I might consider dying them (if possible) after the wedding!

Probably doing ivory shoes also. I ordered a pair of blue shoes and got them…they kind of scared me and I sent them back. I might get a pair of blue or yellow shoes for the reception.

I couldn’t find gold shoes like I wanted so I grabbed the first ivory ones that fit in that same store because I didn’t want to search for months. Shows you how important gold shoes were to me 😛

Personally I am going with colored, but I have been to tons of weddings recently and they all had white shoes.  I dont think your a dying breed at all!

I ended up going with ivory shoes, to match my dress.  Honestly, I wanted to go with colored shoes, but my mom, aunt and sister were appalled by the idea.

I am also going with a neutral shoe. I’m bringing 4 different shoes to my first fitting to decide! My dress is a light ivory, so the shoes are ivory patent, cement white, rosey nude, and gold! (I am definitely returning the shoes I don’t use.) I had a really hard time with shoes and I’ve been looking for the past two seasons. You are very lucky to have found something you love and fits well!

I originally bought pink shoes to wear under my gown (before it came in).  When my gown came in and I saw how gorgeous and elegant it was, I didn’t want to take anything away from it with my shoes.  So I bought some diamond white, brooch toe shoes to match my dress and I am thrilled that I did.  I wore the pink shoes with my black and white dress for my wedding shower. 🙂

I don’t think you’re a dying breed. I’ve never seen anybody in “real” life wear colored shoes. I’ll probably do gold or silver sandals {beach wedding} for the reception, but I’m going barefoot in the sand. It kills me though…I LOVE FANCY SHOES! 🙂

i think colored shoes are pretty, but i’m weary about using some trends for my wedding and this is one of them. i just don’t want to look back at my wedding pictures in 30 years and say “what was i thinking?” so i’m sticking with the classic ivory.

I’m doing blue shoes, but I’m a firm believer on doing whatever works for you!  I’m sure you’ll look fabulous!
