    A new tradition!

    A fad that's here for a long time

    A fad that's fading out

    I’m not sure that blue shoes are the norm, but colorful shoes (i.e. not white/ivory) are certainly more popular. I wore red shoes, myself, as my bridesmaids’ dresses were red.

    I have navy blue shoes.  I wanted something different and my colors are navy and lilac.  So it was a natural choice for me to go with navy shoes.  Maybe one day colored shoes will be out of style, but I don’t think that’ll happen for a long time.  Girls nowadays want options rather than just picking white/ivory shoes.

    I think it’d make a cute tradition, but I believe it’s a fad that will burn out soon.

    I, myself, was going to go with colorful shoes.  Now I want to go the opposite direction and to your typical white.

    Honestly, I think it’s a bit more of a practical thought that anything else–a sign of the repression, if you will.  Women seem to be more willing to shell out $$ for an expensive pair of shoes if they’ll wear them more than once.  White shoes? How often do you wear fance white shoes, honestly? I think that’s really what it is.

    I was happy to jump on the colored shoe bandwagon; this way I got a pair of cute shoes that I can wear again. But I think it’s so new it can’t really be a “tradition” yet.

    I wore green shoes bc well I hate white shoes and like pops of color. Plus my dress was tea length.

    i think colored shoes are beautiful- but not for me. it’s rare that a girl gets the chance to wear a white shoe! i can wear colored shoes any day of the year, but white, i choose for my wedding 🙂 i think it’s a fad that’ll stay a little while.

    @Jeannine @ Small Chic: I’m with you there with the adopting trends.  I was never one to.  I would always have my own thing going on and once it did become popular, I went the opposite direction.  Hard to explain.  Anyways, two shoe bride sounds like a good idea though!  I say go for it.  🙂

    I think its a fad but also a matter of taste/preference.  I have an ecclectic shoe closet, with all kinda of colored shoes.  So for me, to wear a colored shoe, is everyday.  That’s why I chose an ivory shoe.  I have one pair of cream shoes (with the exception of sandals) that are not comfy at all so I don’t wear them often.

    @Jeannine @ Small Chic: I was a two shoe bride!  White for the traditional church ceremony and red for the fun reception!

    I think the trend is more for non-white shoes than specifically for blue shoes.  And I think it will be around for a while because brides want to be able to re-wear their shoes (which is easier with something non-white).

    I love the colored shoe tradition/fad/whatever – I was a purple shoe bride and proud of it! I wear these puppies all the time now!
