@Shlendie:  I think those look lovely! I was planning on wearing coloured shoes too, and whilst my mum is unsure of the idea I’m certain she’ll come around (and if not, she’ll barely see my feet on the day anyway!)

I love them! I desperately wanted blue shoes, but couldn’t find any I liked!

I am wearing deep red shoes with my ivory dress! I think the pop of color looks lovely

@Shlendie:  This is your wedding, not your Mom’s or your sister’s. It really doesn’t matter if they don’t like your shoes. We do!

I LOVED having colored shoes! Looked SO fantastic in the photos where there’s a pop of color showing. Like Julies1949 said- your day, your way.

@Shlendie:  I had colored shoes too & loved it! I wanted purple as well but couldn’t find the perfect pair so I got my other color- blue- with a purple shoe clip from etsy… I love a little color and for me personalyl dressing in all white is about as boring as dressing in all black- looks great on some people but just not my style at all!

@Shlendie:  I love them!  I have an ivory lace mermaid dress that I’m wearing strappy purple heels with.  🙂

@Shlendie:  That shoe would look g-o-r-geous! If I wasn’t wearing cowboy boots with mine, I would be opting for pink beauties in that same type of style.

If your mom is having a bit of a problem with them though, what about a slightly darker shade? A trick I use sometimes is to show her 3 options – one that is outrageous,one that is classy and pretty (like the one in the picture) and a very boring slightly ugly one. Ask her to pick which one she likes of the 3, then she will feel like she had a say Wink

I wore purple heels with my dress that was not ivory, but off-white. It was fun! I say go for it 🙂

I didn’t wear purple shoes, but my wedding colors were dark purple/plum and ivory.
