Ctobin:  to me…no…but i’m a simple gal 😉 i’m wearing a mermaid gown with a lot of tulle at the bottom, and wearing these toms (for comfort and to also keep me from being too tall!):

they make these in glittery silver too 😉 but that’s if you’re into wearing flats! if you want to wear pretty shoes, if even for the pics…do it!

Ctobin:  I wouldn’t buy ‘cheap’ shoes regularly, so my wedding day is no exception. I was originally after a pair of navy suede Prada’s but waited too long and missed out. I’m wearing a pair of blue suede Salvatore Ferragamo, not a single person will see them unless I show them, but I don’t care.

blankenshiptobe:  Those shoes are beautiful. I was thinking about getting bridal toms shoes. Do you think they would look good with a ball gown? I’m also wondering about whether or not people can really see your shoes… especially under such a poofy dress.

Nope! No one will see them! Except for those cute pictures… I do prefer my posture and height with heels though so i went with a small sparkly pump, but i choose the shoes based on comfort, not brand or price (they ended up being from a high street store for €35)

Nobody saw my shoes, I kicked the off after the ceremony and wore flats during the reception to be comfortable.  Nobody even asked to see my shoes.

blankenshiptobe:  I think I might go with sparkle ones or the ivory ballet toms. I love the idea of getting shoes for the wedding that I can wear again and again. My rings shouldn’t be the only thing I use again after the wedding 😛

Nope! If you’ve got a floorlength dress, you only see the shoes if you’re specifically taking pictures of them/showing them off. My wedding shoes were $14.50 from Target! I’d worry more about comfort and less about looks.

A lot of people saw my shoes. In fact, I had people ask me to see my shoes. My shoes were/are fabulous, so I had no problem showing them off.

No. The only one who will care what shoes you are wearing is you.

No, I bought a beautiful pair of high end designer shoes, thinking it would be an important detail… It wasn’t. I changed into flats right after the ceremony. Fortunately, I’ve worn those heels a few times since.

Nope. One of my daughter’s paid $30 (DSW) and took them off by the time the band started playing. They were props in some of the photos – that’s it. Other daughter paid $50 at Davids’s bridal, for some blingy shoes and I think $20 for blingy sandals, for dancing. My feet hurt so much, I took off my shoes during the cocktail hour, and went barefoot.

Ctobin:  I don’t think it’s worth it to get expensive shoes. I had a cheap pair strassed with purple “diamonds” and they were gorgeous. And the only time anyonr saw them was after the ceremony when I literally picked up my dress to show people. I was disappointed they didn’t show more since I loved them but oh well. So in the end I was glad I didn’t spend a fortune on them.
