@NayCav86:  I am kind of giggling over what I”m about to suggest, because it sounds like a nightmare to me… but have you considered buying a pair of peeps that fit and then applying the bling yourself? I believe folks round here call it “strassing”?  You can search that term and see a ton of LOVELY results of DIY Strass 

Some bees are into it. I unfortunately have the patience of a 2 year old that needs a nap.

@NayCav86:  I’m like you — my feet are big (size 11 or 12, depending on the shoe — yikes!) and yeah, it’s basically impossible to find anything cute in that size. Someday the shoemakers of the world will catch on that more & more of us are in the “plus size” category of footwear, but until then… it’s tough. 

I ended up buying my shoes from this website, and I was happy:

They have a decent selection of bigger sizes. The only problem is that the shoes are expensive!!

Good luck.

I bought my wide wedding shoes from a UK website but they were an American brand called “touch ups by Benjamin walk”. They fit perfectly and for the very first time in my life I made an easy shoe purchase. Best of luck, I know your pain.

I agree with stillme, try myglassslipper.com.  Also, try bridalshoes.com…they have the TouchUps by Benjamin Walk. 

I have big, wide feet too (9.5)…Paradox London’s Pink brand of shoes are SUPER comfortable. I got a pair, had them dyed purple and sent them to a seller on Etsy to be strassed…it was a bit pricey but they turned out beautifully. Wore them all night and felt like I was walking on air! 

Hope you find what you’re looking for soon Smile

@NayCav86:  I love Zappos.  These aren’t perfect but here are some that might appeal to you in your size.

I bought literally 5 pairs of shoes on Zappos and returned them before I found the ones I’m going to wear, you can return so easily.  They probably hate me because shipping (including return shipping) is free.  I’m sorry Zappos, don’t ban me, I love you.

@NayCav86:  There are a few sellers on ETSY that you send them your own shoes and they strass them for you so if you have a pair of shoes that fit you well you could send them in and have them strassed. I bought my bouquet holder from someone on ETSY and she does this….that might be an option for you!

@NayCav86:  I suffer the same fate as you. Big wide feet. I can sometimes pull off a 9.5, sadly in heels I’m usually a 10. I also have a weakness for pretty designer shoes. I have had the WORST time finding shoes until just yesterday when I found TWO! Then I was completely torn, so take your butt down to Dillards and check these out because they are the same price and VERY comfy (Especially the Bini’s!)

 

Shoe 1 (The one I ordered)- Antonio Melani’s Evette in Silver. They only go up to 10, but I felt like they were a little big on me so you may be able to pull it off 🙂

Shoe 2 Gianni Bini Flame Cutout, Silver. (These also only go up to 10 but I definitely had to go down a size and managed to fit into a 9! So maybe a 10 would work for you)

I sympathize, although I have a totally different problem: I have to wear size 12, because I have like really long toes, and of course, a 12 is too big…I am terrified, because I really only buy shoes from 3 brands…and they certainly don’t make bridal shoes!  I’m going the Shoes of Prey route, but have you looked at Torrid?  Nearly all their shoes are wide…and many of them go up to 13.  They usally have more on-trend shoes.

 

Good luck!
