I am having the worst time trying to figure out a good/appropriate place to start shoe shopping. My dress is due to be finished by the designer and shipped to the boutique at the beginning of March, and I want to make sure I have shoes and under-things before my first fitting.
Where are you ladies finding these amazing shoes?? Online? In stores? If so, which stores? DSW? Nordstrom? Rack Room (ha, ha)?? Zappos? I am not fidning anything worthwhile on these online shoe stores. I am quite a bit shorter than Fiance and definitely plan to wear heels for the ceremony, but would like to change into fun flats afterward. My dress is the Liancarlo 4840 (lace with a nude underlay, with a nude Vera Wang sash around the waist…sashes in the picture from the designer website are NOT what i’ll be wearing. Uggg can’t post a picture because my work computer won’t let me for some reason??), so I was thinking maybe a nude shoe? The lace and my sash and the overall look of the dress just doesn’t seem conducive to wearing a fun color shoe….if I had gotten a non-lace dress, I would have gone with a purple shoe…and I am finding it hard to find a shoe that is a white/off-white/wedding-shoe-color that I feel works.
Where did y’all start??

I started at Nordstrom…. I loved going shoe shopping there because they usually have tons of styles and are good about brining out shoes I wouldn’t have normally selected. I had my eyes on a couple different pairs of shoes that didn’t end up fitting my foot well… so I opted for another pair (which was insanely comfy!).
The other thing is my shoes were BARELY seen at all during the wedding. I’ve gotten more use out of my wedding shoes post wedding than I felt like I did at the wedding.
I had a sparkly shoe for the ceremony and then changed into a pair of red heels that I already owned after a bit of dancing/reception time and my feet were starting to hurt.

I bought mines from Zappos! I really wanted badgley mischkas but that was after I bought my wedding shoes. Try Ideeli.com, they have awesome deals! I always see badgley mischkas on their website at least once or twice a week.

I’m a zappos.com girl. I buy shoes from them all the time and they provide the best customer service. Returning/exchanging is easy, plus they have a great selection.

I loved Zappos because of all of the different filters you can use to find the exact shoe you want, from color to price to heel height.

I tried shoes on at Bloomingdales and Neiman Marcus and then found the pair I liked cheaper online. Be careful with designer brands – they tend to run smaller than typical sizes.

I actually started with figuring out what color shoe I wanted and just went from there. I went on Pinterest.com to get some ideas of things I might like. Then from there went into different shoe websites to look for things as well. Nordstroms.com, Zappos.com, 6pm.com, Jcpenny, macys, even the designers website..and most if not all of these sites you can filter the search results by color and/or size. Good Luck!
