I’m dying to get an awesome pair of sparkly shoes for my wedding..ideally i would love Jimmy Choos..but then i wonder, can you even see your shoes under a big gown? The only time i ever see a bride’s shoes is when the photographer takes those cute pictures beforehand, where the shoes aren’t even on… thoughts? is it worth the money to buy expensive wedding shoes?

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!

To me it’s not. But me and my SO have also decided we will be making custom Nike’s lol

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)

futuremrsdeemac: no one will see them unless you mean for them to be seen, especially in a ballgown! i say go sparkly toms 😉

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.
