    I love the first pair, they’re very cute and unique, and look great with that dress.

    The first ones are my favorite but the 4th ones are cute as well. I think the first are more re-wearable, just because they look unique and less weddingy.

    Your reception dress is beautiful! I prefer a look similar to the one in the photo, simple slingbacks that don’t compete with the detail of you dress. I vote #4.

    I think all of them would look fabulous except #3, which I don’t think match the dress (although they’re cute).

    I love the first ones.  How tall are you?  I know I have short legs and I could never wear the middle ones with a short dress, since the high ankle would make my legs look even shorter.  So I think that’s one thing to consider if you are thinking about them – they’re certainly pretty cool looking.

    Your reception dress–wow! Congratulations–it actually still looks wedding-ish and not prommy or summer sundress, like so many short dresses I’ve been seeing. Seriously gorgeous. i voted for 4, though 1 is a close second. In my opinion, the others don’t really match the style of your dress.

    I also love your reception dress!!!

    I chose #4 to go with your dress because they are classic and won’t take away from your dress.

    I think 3 will be the most comfortable, but if they’re ivory then the shade isn’t right for the dress… otherwise I think 4 is the cutest.

    I like the second one best. The lace-ups are my least favorite of them all

    @Soon-to-beMrsCakes:

    The dress is so beautiful I must say! I like the lace and pearl shoes and #4 as well which as you said are a safe choice 🙂

    I know #4 may be the “safe” traditional option, but I do think it matches your dress better than any of the others.

    If you want to go less traditional, you could always pull out the colored shoe option :-). I think your dress has enough detail that you don’t want too much going on with your shoes.
