Maybe have a talk with her and let her know that the items you are having to purchase are a little more than you expected and you would like her to pay half of the costs. She may have just got her taxes and that may be why she has some extra money.

I can see why you are frustrated. I would not continue to pay for future things for her. Have you told her that you would pay for  X things that have to do with the wedding in the future?

I think that is a good idea. I would take her out to lunch if you can, and just bring it up in casual conversation.

Good idea. AND you did “pay for her” while she was having financial issues, and now it sounds like she’s not.

I would be careful as to how to approach on her on this since you already said that you would pay for these things yourself.  Maybe the next time she mentions some new shoes or something she buys, you can ask if you she can get the next thing on your list?  Or if it would be possible to contribute to some of the purchased items like noritake22 suggested.
