I don’t really have high-quality pictures of my dress – these are the best I have. It is all-over-lace, light all-over-beading, sheath or maybe a thin a-line. Very, very white.
(it will reach the floor after alterations!)
(like the little puppy nose in the corner of the photo? lol.)
And here are the shoes I love. (Don’t try to talk me out of flats – I’m determined to be thinking about my husband and not my aching feet! Plus my dress is already having a hard time reaching the floor as it is, and our reception is outdoors.)
I love round-toe flats, especially with pleats/knots/bows on the toe. I’m not a super big fan of glitter shoes, and it’s been hard to find any plain ones! But I think I finally found some that will work. Plus they come in wide – hallelujah!
They are white faux leather. Will that material clash with the beaded lace at all? I hope they’re white enough…

If you don’t think they would work, please tell me what would. I’m not a shoe girl… I’m pretty clueless.

Lovely dress! I voted “no” just because I think they are not dressy enough. Your dress is so sparkly and flowy, when those flats are plain and leathery. I would recommend finding something that is a little more formal or delicate looking, I know its tough with flats but it’s do-able!

Something like these.
More dressy, but not too expensive. Good luck 🙂

@MissWitty: Are these possibilities?
(swap out the buttons for white/neutral ones)
Or plain ones.
I really don’t like peep toe shoes. :S

Love the dress! I think you should do something satin and not leather it would go better with the lace.
I know they are peep toe, but if not these something like them
Also look on shoebuy.com the touch ups shirley shoe (not a peep toe)

What about a flat sandal that has a little bit of sparkle?

I think the shoes you chose are a little too casual, especially when your dress has so much delicate lace and beading. I do think that you shouldn’t match all over lace shoes to an all over lace dress, but I think your shoes should be a little more formal ^_^

@MissWitty: I love both of these! Great choices.
@gangqinjia: Since you said you don’t like open toe, maybe the ones on the right in MissWitty’s post? They’re a bit less casual than the ones you posted and I think they would work better.

@gangqinjia: I have those exact shoes! They’re so comfortable and I love them, but I wear them just as normal flats. Mine are old and semi dirty now, but I really wanted to find another pair and wear them as my wedding shoes, but I can’t find another pair for sale, so I’ve been trying to find a pair of white flats (I don’t want to be taller than my FI either), but it’s pretty hard finding a pair of dressy white flats, I think these would be great if I didn’t wear them so much already!

I think they should be dressier- mainly the bottom of them because what will happen is the white leather will be under the dress and all you will see are the lower edges that have the brownish color. I like the jcrew ideas someone suggested… something with satin or sparkle.

Did you look at nordstrom?

I can understand that I would need formal shoes, but what makes flats formal or casual? (Seriously, explain to me, I don’t do shoes so I have no idea!)

These, on the DSW site, come in white:
so do these:
I hope the links work the way I want them to work. You can click on various views of the shoes, and I’ve tried to feature what I consider to be the best view, but I’m not sure that the link will actually take you to that particular image.
ETA: As I suspected, the links do not show the exact images (top view) that I tried to show. However, you will still have the option to view them when you click on the links.
