I am trying to decide what style of shoes will go best with my dress and wedding type… We’re getting married outside in a courtyard (think garden, vines, etc) of a historical hotel in the mountains of Western Colorado. It’ll a small, intimate ceremony in late May of next year. My fiance will be in his Marine dress blues, so I don’t want to go too casual, but it is a small, outdoor setting so I was looking for a garden/earthy and feminine/dressy combination. Your thoughts are much appreciated! Here’s the dress:

Oh–and heel height is not a huge factor, I am just under 5’7" and he’s about 6’1".
I thought these were adorable… do you think they would go?

Ohh I really like the last ones since they look really vintagey and would totally match your very pretty dress! 🙂

first of, i LOVE the dress. it’s beautiful and vintagey – very earthy and romantic. the first shoe you have would go well. some sort of cloth covered ballet flat (well rounded toe at least) if you’re ok w/ flats would be perfect i think.

All the shoes are cute but IMO I think it is too much lace. I know you would be going for the “vintagey” look but I think there is another way you can have the vintage look but without the same material. Also, I think heels would work best with the dress.
BUT do what you want. You know better than anyone else what works best for you and your taste. I am no expert, just wanted to give my opinion.

I would suggest finding a shoe just like the ones you posted W/O lace.. a lace dress and lace shoes might be a little too matchy-matchy.

The shoes are cute. I like shoe #2.
However, I think you should go with a non-lace shoe since your dress has a beautiful lace. Emphasize one accent that you want to grab people’s attention. Try a simple strappy white or gold/silver shoe with your wedding dress. The lace from your dress is the embellishment that will you want to stand out.
Try Blue Tux’s website for some simple shoes or ideas. You can still use one of the shoes above for some wedding event…just pair it with jeans. You’ll still feel bridal in them since it has the lace.

I would go for satin ballet flats. I think the lace might be too much lace with your dress. If not ballet flats, maybe a strappy flat sandal?
