    I think bronze shoes could be really lovely.  just a bit darker than gold so it would feel more subtle.  Nude could also work.

    I think black, green etc could potentially just be a bit too much and that you should let your gown be the star.

    Don’t laugh but I also love this tool for color matching. Play with the sliders until you find your red and it shows you all sorts of color options.

    I would avoid using too many different color tones. If the dress is going to be a bold red, don’t compete with it! Choose shoes that tie in color tones from your jewelery

    I voted red and gold. Gold looks so classy. You could wear red shoes if you wanted matchy matchy as long it’s a red the suits your dress and doesn’t clash.

    @Miss Circe: How about ivory to co-ordinate with the veil but is soft and doesn’t take away the impact of your dress

    I really like purple with red! Not sure if that would be too overwhelming though. Otherwise I really like PPs suggestion about a bronze color. Red would be too matchy for me.

    @Miss Circe:  Since you already have a big statement dress and 4 colors going on I personally would not introduce a 5th color. You don’t want to end up looking clownish. I love gold and red together (in fact red is about the only color I like with yellow gold), so IMO gold shoes would be lovely.

    Hm red, if you can find shoes in the right shade. Otherwise gold/bronze. Ok but now I can’t get the image of bold deep blue satin shoes with that dress out of my head.

    I would stick to gold or silver – depending on what you do with the jewelry.

    @Miss Circe:  Again, just my personal opinion 🙂  But I don’t like mixing similar metal tones. Like gold and brass or gold and copper, gold and bronze, etc. I think it’s makes one look “off”. But that’s just me.

    Maybe a truly dark dark dark red would be nice.

    I’d pick a nude colour shoe!  With your dress being such a show stopper I think something neutral would look best:))
