Your shoe link isn’t working for me. Pretty dress!

I think you are going to have to take a picture of yourself in the dress and shoes so that we can get a better idea of whether this ensemble will work.  You can certainly wear different shoes for the ceremony and reception, but should make sure that they are the same size heel.

Gorgeous dress, but the link for the shoes isn’t working for me either.

I couldn’t get the shoe link to work either.

As for the veil- you can easily get a bird cage in ivory or champagne!  Given the sleek style of your dress, I think a bird cage could work.

I think a birdcage veil would definitely work.

The shoes are definitely a very bold statement. And you’ll definitely see them a lot with the style of your dress. If you are set on the shoes, I would get a more subdued wedge for the ceremony (so you don’t sink into the grass) and then use those for the reception, once you’re ready to have a little fun.

The dress and the shoes are both gorgeous, but I don’t really like them together. I would go for a daintier shoe for that dress. A colored shoe would work, but perhaps a lighter shade of blue would be more summery, and one with a wedge or a lower/more substantial (non-stiletto) heel too so you don’t sink into the grass too much.

For those for whom the photos aren’t working, here are the pics of emrw’s selections:

Ok first, i died when I saw your dress — SO GORGE!  What a bargain.  I’m a colored shoed bride myself so I’m usually always for it, but I’m not loving the shoes + dress.  In the end I think it would be OK, but they wouldn’t be my pick.  Maybe something a little more simple and blue?  Like a plain blue satin or OH!  Like Miss Martini’s she just got back?  Maybe not SW but something dyeable and simple and PURTY!

And a birdcage veil – OBVS!  They are always appropriate.  I’m wearing one in my cube right now (JK but I wish I was and totally could cause they’re awesome)
