I originally bought one pair of ivory shoes that I thought I liked, but now I don’t anymore. So I’m in the market once more for another pair of shoes to wear at my wedding. I’ve always dreamed of wearing ivory to compliment my ivory wedding dress.
But for the last few years, there’s been the hot trend of colored shoes popping out from under wedding dresses. I think it’s a neat idea, but I don’t think I’m into it. I also think that the look is becoming so commonplace today which lessons the effect if more and more brides choose colored wedding shoes.
Can anyone else related?

I have seen a lot of brides still wearing white or ivory shoes. I think the biggest trend is to just do what makes you happy!

@aqua: i’ve wanted a dark champagne or other colored wedding shoe for at least 10 years. colored shoes just do it for me. i say wear whatever colored shoe you love… most trends that you see on the boards and in bridal magazines actually don’t come across in real life as commonly as you would think.

I think it’s totally fine to wear whatever makes you happy. It’s common on the blogs to see colored wedding shoes, but that doesn’t mean most people are doing it, just like crebre80 mentioned. As long as you like it, it’ll be great!

I think you should wear what makes you happy! I didn’t wear colored shoes, either, and I don’t regret it one bit! Here’s my shoes: http://gallery.weddingbee.com/photo/white-rsvp-ellina-heels

Wear what you want! It’s not like your ivory shoes are ugly, offensive, or inappropriate! I wore a light beige and gold sandal.

Wear what makes you happy! I think it all is in the perspective of the beholder – while I saw so many colored shoes in blogs and magazines and felt that perhaps my idea of wearing colored shoes was too trendy, more than 1/2 of my guests thought it was such a novel idea! So, do what makes you feel the most bridey!

Not weird at all!
I plan on wearing blue shoes, and everyone I’ve told in real life thinks I’m off my rocker. They’ve never heard of such a thing and they really think it is so weird that I’m doing it. So you would be considered normal to them! LOL

Why would that be weird? It’s actually the norm.

You should wear whatever shoes you want to wear. I think with some dresses it looks best to wear white or ivory shoes anyway. I’m wearing colored shoes because I like the idea and I’ll be able to wear them again, which is a lot more practical in my mind than spending cash on certain “bridal” shoes that I wouldn’t be able to wear after the wedding.

I’m wearing pink shoes and everyone thinks that I’m crazy too but I think I’ll get more use out of them which is why I’m doing it. I say, do whatever you want – its your day afterall!

My shoes are off-white patent leather strappy sandles. I have plenty of color going on elsewhere in my wedding. I say, go for the white shoes 🙂

Definitely not weird! I think it looks very elegant!

Not weird! Just wear what you want and what makes YOU happy! Even though it seems like many brides are on the colored shoes train there are many more who aren’t! When I tell people IRL I’ll be wearing blue shoes some of them look at me funny – trust me this is a total “bride” thing.

I’m also on the side where I’m not into the colored shoes. I wore ivory shoes as well since I wore my mom’s dress, and it was a little yellowed from being 30 years old! I say go with what you feel comfortable with!
