    I am afraid I just can’t fathom spending that money on shoes…  I bought a pair on clearance at DSW that I loved for $20 (and my wedding was $25,000).  I’d much prefer to spend the money on food, drink or for savings for house, kids or retirement.  What does your FI think?

    @2BeeMrsE:  Do IT!!! haha I plan on not wearing my shoes again. They are special, Badgley Mischka’s, not 750 but still. I am a shoe wh*re though so I can always justify a designer heel!

    @2BeeMrsE:  If you can, return these shoes and get a different pair of extravagent shoes that are comfortable and not too narrow! Since you can afford it, you might as well splurge 🙂 Besides, maybe you’ll pass your wedding shoes on to your daughter someday. As for durability, I’ve never owned a pair of shoes of that quality, so I have no clue.

    @2BeeMrsE:  Ah, well that makes it trickier.  It probably then depends on whether you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of them if they are too narrow, whether you’d prefer anything else for that amount of money and whether you’d wear them again.

    @2BeeMrsE:  If they aren’t 100% comfortable, I’d probably pass (if they WERE, I’d be enabling with the best of ’em! Tongue Out ).  If you can afford them, I think your wedding is a great time to buy “investment” shoes…but not ones that are uncomfortable for a full day of wear or that you’ll never wear again.

    I would not wear any shoes that are narrow on my foot so I think you are answering your own question here. I would have no problem spending the money if it’s no issue like you said. I would find another pair of designer shoes that fit my foot well.

    I am unable to tell you to NOT buy them because I just splashed out on a pair of Choos. They arrive in the mail tomorrow, so I’ll post a photo of them when they come in. 

    My concern really is that you say they feel narrow and I worry that you won’t be able to wear them as long as you want. I think you should keep looking for a pair that is both sexy as hell AND 100% comfy. They are hot, though. Nordstrom has the same materials/color in a slingback (model, Clue) that might be more comfortable.

    So, to me this is more an issue of comfort than price. I’m all for killer designer kicks, but you do NOT want to wear even remotely uncomfortable shoes on your wedding day. Believe me, if you noticed they were a leeeeetle uncomfortable in the store, they’ll be murder by the end of the night. I was in slippers by the time dinner rolled around because my feet were killing me with all the standing and posing for photos, and I couldn’t bear to put them back on for the remainder of the evening (first dance with a toe-pointing dip included) because they hurt too much! 

     

    I’d go for classy and comfy on the day, then break out the super sexy designer stuff for the honeymoon. I ended up getting some really gorgeous black leather boots on our honeymoon in Italy, and I felt like a queen for the whole two weeks. Something like that has more longevity and you’ll be able to enjoy it a lot longer than something that is too fancy to show off more than once or twice a year at a black tie fundraiser.

    If you want designer heels for your wedding, then get them! Just make sure that they do fit your foot. If $750 is your budget, there are a lot of other shoes that will fit better. Don’t buy something just because it’s on sale! Buy it because you love it, and it fits like a dream (even though it’ll hurt like hell after an hour, haha). Sandals that are too tight do not look good.

    @2BeeMrsE:  they are beautiful and I did too want jimmy choos for my wedding day shoes.. They were $600, but honestly I rather spend $600 on something else than shoes.. I wanted some glittery, sparkly shoes and I searched and searched.. I Finally found them from the Guess  website and on sale under $100… Plus,by the time your  reception starts, you will want to be taking them shoes off.. My feet hurt from taking pics before ceremony, walking, and after ceremony.
