I thought I’d NEVER “say yes,” but with my November wedding fast-approaching, I FINALLY FOUND IT! Allure C207 in light gold. Everyone was right… I totally got “the feeling!” It’s so sparkly and antique-y and ladylike and I wanted to take the sample home!
Question, hive — did you have an antique-y, gold or champagne-hue gown? Would love SHOE advice! Ivory and white satin are OUT, obviously. And I’m not doing the bright color thing (red, blue, hot pink, etc.)
Should I search for a bridal-looking gold-taupe shoe? Look for a crystal shoe? What style? I’d love a closed-toe pump for all-night comfort. (NOT doing the flip-flop thing!)
My ring is white gold and my Nanny’s pearls are almost yellow-gold looking so I think anything goes… NEED ADVICE! What did you wear or what would you recommend?? Thanks, ladies!!

@kmconda: that is beautiful, breathtaking. Could you get bridal shoes and have them dyed to match your dress

My dress was very similar to yours (Monique Lhuillier Melissa, which, oddly enough, I also found at a trunk sale!), and I wore patent leather nude peep-toes, which I loved. Very minimalist, but I allowed myself to splurge a little since they are a basic staple and I can wear them again!

How beautiful, you look stunning! It’s so elegant!
Have you considered some antiqued style lace shoes? I’m not sure what your budget is, but I recently found this website that make the most beautiful shoes! http://tlccreations.co.uk/
These are some of the ones I like:
Or this beautiful pair, which are totally custom:

You are stunning in that dress! Hey Lady has gorgeous shoes, but pricey. If that’s an option, check out Daddy’s Girl in Gold or At Tiffany’s or Princess Buttercup might look good too. Good luck! I totally have dress envy right now!

Wow that’s a beautiful dress on you..! My sister wore a similar dress (Maggie Sottero’s Bernadette). She wore these beautiful Valentino shoes in nude I believe.. not the most comfy but boy, were they beautiful!
