    I like the idea of coloured shoes because the bride ofte looks just so ‘white’ it gives a nice pop of colour peeking out from under the dress.

    Lilac is such a pretty colour too and you could probably pair them with jeans or a cute summer dress at a later date.

    I think white shoes are kinda 80s. But silver sounds so lovely, and yes, you can rewear them again.

    It’s going to be really hard to switch heel heights without it affecting your dress.  Since your dress has a scalloped hemline, it probably can’t be hemmed at all and will be ordered at the exact length you need it.  So you’re either choosing for it to be too short with the heels or too long (read “you’ll trip a lot”) with the flats.

    I would opt for a kitten heel or flats or something that is comfortable that you can wear all night long.  Color is second to comfort/practicality.

    no one is really going to see your shoes under your dress.  wear shoes that you can wear again.

    I would choose either ivory silk shoes with tons of Swarovski crystals on them or sparkly silver sandals for that dress.  I definitely would not choose white, because your dress is ivory.

    You’ll defintely get more wear out of sparkly silver sandals.

    @Milo22:  Well if the bridal shop said they could hem it, then they probably can.  I was just going off the picture and my past experience with a scalloped hem dress where I was told it couldn’t be hemmed.  Still, you can’t change the hem between the ceremony and the reception.  I’d pick one shoe and wear it all night.

    @Milo22:  You can hem this style of dress by taking it up at the waist line. I’d bet there is a seam under that detail ‘belt’.

    I think you should go with purple or silver shoes.
    I wore 4″ silver heels during ceremony and 3″ purple canvas wedges for reception which I’d worn previously many many times. We altered to the wedge hight and just had my heels peeking out at the ceremony. Was totally fine. You’ll be carrying your dress as you walk, anyways. (Or at least I did because I was surrounded by ruffles..)

    I would *not* recommend wearing the heels all day! After a few hours of carrying the weight of your dress, your feet are going to be TIRED. I wore my 3″ wedges for reception because they are more comfortable to me than any flats I own. Support is key.
