Opinions please! I really want to wear flats for the wedding because shoes with any sort of heel and I do not get along. Here’s my dress: (Couldn’t get a picture of me in it because the store only had the all white version, but this dress is the color I ordered):
So there are 3 shoe options that I found so far.
1. Pink Satin: These are my absolute favorite because they’re flat, they have a peep toe (which I always love) and I love all the embellishments. The only thing I’m iffy on is the color. That is to say I actually really like the color of the shoe, but I’m not sure that it goes with the dress.
2. Beige canvas: I think the color is great, and it still has a peep toe (Yay!), but they’re canvas which I feel is not very lovely to be paired with a wedding dress.
3. Gold sequin: Again, I think the color is right, but I sure do wish they had a peep toe! 🙂

Of the three choices the pink ones are the best choice but I think all three pairs are too casual. The canvas pair is obviously too casual. The sequins don’t go with the sophistication of that beautiful, beautiful dress, IMO. It seems the pink shoes are satin which is great, but the embelleshments seem to be made of a casual material which again don’t match the sophistication of your classic and beautiful dress. I think pink will be fine, assuming the colors of your wedding include the same and/or similar shades of pink.

I agree with the above; if had to pick, I’d pick the pink as they’re the most sophisticated, but I’d probably keep looking. Canvas is WAY too casual; that’s the type of thing I’d wear on holiday with denim, or a short white cotton dress. And the sequin ones are a bit young/party-ish for my liking, and I think they’ll look odd with the dress.
I know you don’t get along with heels, but I would consider a small heel, even if only for the ceremony, if I were you, as I think they’ll look much more sophisticated, and go with the dress much better; you could maybe look at a very small wedge (1.5-2 inches) if heels aren’t you’re thing.
I do think the pink colour is nice though, and looks pretty with the dress.

I agree that a small heel would look better than no heel and wedges are definitely easier to walk in. But, if you definitely want a flat, may I suggest these. They can be dyed if you want.

I vote for the pink and depending on the look you’re going for, I don’t think they are too casual. The dress could be dressed up or dressed down, so it really depends on the feel of your wedding.

@BuzzBuzz: EDIT: Ooooh those pink ones are so pretty! See if you can find another pink accessory to balance the look. Otherwise, may I suggest staying in the coffee/gold tones? I’ve seen this dress in person in its beautiful coffee color and think you would do well to find a shoe that is complimentary in color. (I’d already bought my wedding gown and was there for a fitting, and tried on your design just for fun!) I agree the canvas material is too casual. Keep looking for just the right shoe. You have time! 🙂

Here are some options I found for you. Gold, coffee, even champagne tones:
J.Crew Metallic Gold Peep Toe Flats
Fiorella flat by Steve Madden
Xhilaration Sinead Peep-Toe Flats

That dress is just screaming for something other than a flat shoe. Can you manage a kitten heel or a low wedge?
I posted some pics of low wedges on this post:

I voted to keep looking. I LOVE the pink shoe, but think it would be best if it was the colour of the 3rd shoe. However I don’t think the 2nd or 3rd shoe is what you need/want. Try and find something just like the pink one but in a beige/gold!

I think you need to have a low heel with this dress, otherwise you may look stumpy (even if you are tall). Maybe try looking for something low?

First of all, I LOVE that dress. I have had my eye on it since seeing it a few months ago; it’s so gorgeous.
I agree that you need some sort of heel to go with this dress. I’m a flats-lover myself, so I understand where you’re coming from, but even if you just wear heels for the ceremony/pictures, I’d do it! Heels will elongate your legs & complement your dress so nicely. I am picturing a gorgeous peep-toe.
I agree with PPs that you should keep looking for the perfect shoe, BUT if I had to choose from these three, I say pink satin all the way.
