I did these for my honeymoon….these are Brian Atwoods, I got them on ebay for a song (preowned with leather damage) and then covered the damage up with silver leather paint and about a 1000+ swarovski crytals.

@SimonSaysBride:  I really like crystallizing stuff, so I didn’t find it too hard time wise. I totally took breaks!!! I think it took me about a week total to do these, I’d work for like 2-4 hours each day, and then pick it up again the next day.  If you are going to try it yourself, the Crystal Katana is an absolute lifesaver, it really helps speed up the process picking up the crystals and placing them.    Also, the glue I used was E6000, that stuff is industrial strength.  Hope that helps!!

Have you considered glittery shoes rather than crystals? You can get some higher end designer shoes with glitter over crystals. That’s what I’m doing as my dream wedding shoes are $6k. Badgley Mishka makes some pretty glittery shoes. Hope that helps.

@SimonSaysBride:  If your wedding is the same date as your profile says, take your time! So many new shoes will come out until then. I was thinking of doing the same as you with a $300ish budget, but I decided to up it and get silver glittery heels by Christian Louboutin. I know it’s a splurge but I’m more likely to wear the to other peoples weddings and such over and over again and get my money’s worth. Maybe you can save up and buy some Jimmy Choo’s? Check websites like gilt.com or maybe visit one of their outlets. I think you’ll be able to find something beautiful that you can wear time and again for many years.

What color crystals or glitter are you looking for? I just found KS Sliver at the outlet today for 60% off (less than 150 with tax). Still super in love

@SimonSaysBride:
