- Wedding: August 2010
I am looking for either dark purple or dark fuchsia shoes to wear with my dress, and I found these:
(the purple, not the blue)
They could not be MORE perfect. The color is exactly on point–b/c it would match with the purplish-color as well as the dark fuchsia color. Not to mention they are perfect to go with my dress which has a lot of ruffles at the bottom, so this is nice b/c it has something going on, but not overwhelming. Sadness abounded when they did not fit.
I have the HARDEST time finding shoes. I almost can never find comfy peep-toe shoes, which is the ideal for a summer wedding. I can find a few pumps, but unfortunately SO MANY of the ones that I like are in SUEDE. I bought 6 pairs of shoes from zappos.com and only 2 of them were even possibles & I think they may be too uncomfortable for even just the ceremony part. Grrrrrr…..
I have lots of time before my wedding, but I’m kinda worried that purple and dark fuchsia won’t be “it” colors in the spring & it will be hard to find ones that I like & actually work. This may also be really bad, but I was planning on finding shoes and then picking the wedding colors to work AROUND them. LOL. I need to start making some decisions so that strategy may not work.
Anywho…at least I found a pair of possible post-ceremony shoes.
My friend actually laughed outloud when I emailed her a pic. I have until Friday to decide if I want to keep them or return…but I am pretty sure that I will be going with tennis shoes cus I have a HORRIBLE time finding flats that are comfy. One possible alternative is also my purple suede boots (but those may be too hot for an august wedding, but at least they would keep my dress from dragging to much!
