    It they are satin, they can be dyed.  The shop I worked at offered it as a service to brides to bring their shoes back in post-wedding so they could wear them again.

     

    Gorgeous shoes!

    My bridal shoes were purple with bling. Fairly rewearable, but I highly doubt I’ll ever slip them on again. /Sigh. but there were lovely for the day. Even though like you I put on flats as soon as we went to the reception.

    @HourThyme:  Oh, those would be gorgeous in black!!  Dye ’em.  🙂  I’m planning to wear mine after the wedding but mine aren’t traditional shoes – I’ve got purple shoes that also have a platform so if any dirt gets on them, it shouldn’t be too noticable.  And since Mr. S is military, there are plenty of formal occasions to wear them again.

    @HourThyme:  I sold mine. Mine were DIY strassed shoes and really hardly showed any sign of wear after the wedding so I was able to sell them. I actually just shipped them out today!

    I think I would possibly look into dying them…… that doesn’t look like a fabric that would just be able to be wiped down and cleaned. If you liked them and could see yourself wearing them in black I say dye them. Mine were full of crystals and a little too over the top to really wear again so sadly I said my good byes to them and will use the money elsewhere now!

    I have the same ones but in gold and they look perfect. Take them to a shoe repair, I’m sure they are salvagable! I want to wear mine again, I love them!

    @HourThyme: I would dye them a dark colour and rock them with a little black dress, or a pair of jeans!

     

    ETA: I haven’t had my wedding yet, but I plan to re-wear mine (which is part of the reason why I spent so much on them in the first place!)

    I loved my shoes, but I wish I had gone with something simpler…mine were dark purple patent leather with a t-strap and a bow…while I have no regrets about the purple patent leather, I wish they didn’t have the bow, and I wish they weren’t peep toe.  As it turns out, I actually really dislike wearing peep toes.  And if they were a bit simpler, they’d be waaaay easier to wear again. Oh well.  I’m still going to try and find at least one other event to wear them to…

    i think you can totally re-wear yours.  They’d look hot dyed black, or you can definitely have them cleaned.  It’s a pretty classic shoe!

    @HourThyme:  I’m wearing mine! They’re beautiful ornate sandals, so I’ll have to wait for summer.

    I bought $34 sparkly flats that I fully intend to rewear.

    I wear yours again!  Why not?

    @HourThyme:  I am a shoe whore…I LOVE shoes and have a closet full to prove it. I made sure that the shoes I bought were all shoes that I would wear again, because there was no way I was going to buy shoes if i would never get to wear them again.  I ended up with 3 different pair of shoes…I picked the pair i’m going to wear for the reception but am stuck between the other two for the ceremony.  Whichever I don’t end up picking I will probably wear for the showers. LOL
