I am 99% sure I want to pick up these beauties for my oh so special wedding day shoes. They aren’t too low or too high. And they have the romantic feel I am going for. The brooch on the toe is perfect and ties in with my brooch bouquet. The problem is I can’t decide pewter or ivory! My dress is off white with a satin bodice and organza skirt. My wedding colors are yellow and grey with some teal and maybe pink accents. My concern with the pewter: Is the brooch smokey color too dark? My concern with the ivory: is it too boring?
Check out the pics and vote away! Thanks!

I love the pewter, I dont think the smoky broach is too dark.

1. I don’t think ivory is EVER too boring for a wedding shoe – it’s classic, timeless and beautiful. Especially when it comes with a big blingy brooch. 🙂
2. You should DEFINATELY order these, whichever you color you decide on – I had them in navy blue for my wedding and LOVED them. They were surprisingly comfy too, so I kept them on almost the entire night. Had to change in the last hour because they were finally hurting, but I had them on a long time by that point!

By The Way, I think that the color brooch used in the Pewter might be the same that was used in my navy shoe, so here’s a real-life picture for reference.

@ArmyWifey8.23: THANKS!!! That’s a big help. I LOVE the navy, but that doesn’t really fit in with my colors. Thanks again 🙂

I vote the pewter because you probably will have more chances to wear it again after the wedding.

I’m glad you ordered the pewter! I voted for pewter because I think it’ll pop under your dress and also be more wearable after the wedding. Ivory shoes are tough to keep clean so they’re not practical after the wedding, and since your dress has a pretty full skirt, ivory shoes wouldn’t be as much of a statement.

@Miss Wallaby: All excellent points! Especially keeping them clean. Our venue is all outdoors and therefore there WILL be dirt. I’ve accepted the fact that the bottom of my dress will probably get dirty, but I hadn’t even thought about the shoes! Thanks!!!

I’m glad you got the pewter. It’s a little more unexpected.
