- Wedding: June 2009
Here are the shoes I bought, even before I looked at wedding dresses, because I thought they were amazing and fun.
When I tried on my dress we realized that I would not need any alterations if my shoes were over 3.5 inches. These shoes are 5 inches. I haven’t had a chance to try them on with the dress, but they are apparently very popular for brides and bridemaids in this area. I am sure it helps that the bridal store and the best shoe store in town are only 3 businesses away from each other.
However, now I know the shoes are 5 inches. I didn’t remember this when trying on the dress. I just didn’t think they were very tall, the platform toe threw me off. With a 5 inche heel this will make me about 5’11" which is either the high of FH or one inch shy.
He thinks I should wear the shoes, he hasn’t seen them, but he is okay with it because he says I obviously loved them enough to buy before I had a dress. Think is, I am not set on the shoe. It is very pretty. But now I own them, ladies I am sure you understand this. So, now I am looking at other shoes and even considering flats. I have no problem using safety pins on my wedding dress if it turns out to be a little too long.
I don’t necessarily love wearing high heels. I like owning them with the idea of wearing them. But I don’t have a lot of practice wearing them. I walk fine in them when I do wear them.
I am just stuck.
Do I get another pair of shoes, try them all on with the dress and then send back shoes I don’t like?
Anyone care to weigh in on my current shoe selection and the possible replacements.
