I fell inlove with a pair of bronze pumps but I don’t know if they go with my dress. My dress is Ivory and has a silver sparkly belt and some silvery sparkle beading. Can I still waer my dream shoes. I really can’t imagine myself with any other shoes on my wedding day.

@Greenpat468: Can you post pics of your dress and shoes?

I can’t imagine why not. Presumably there are plenty of yards of fabric between the silver details and the bronze shoes. It honestly never would have occured to me to coordinate those things. I don’t think anyone but you will even be aware of the the possibility of a mis-match. [btw. FMIL just gave me a killer pair of vintage bronze heels she bought decades ago in Chile, so I’m all about bronze shoes at the moment.]

I’m not liking the color of the shoe with the color of the belt.

@Greenpat468: ehhh, I don’t like it. If you’re set on that style of Valentinos, why not wear the light pink ones? They’d look gorgeous.

@BlondeBee: I agree. Or the nude ones

I love those Valentinos, but I prefer them in a softer colour…what about the blush version? I feel like the bronze looks a bit out of place unless you have the same colour elsewhere in your wedding.

Although I personally would choose ivory silk heels with a ton of bling on them to go with your stunning dress, the fact that SO many brides today deliberately choose shoes that contrast with and not match their dresses suggest that you absolutely could wear those beautiful shoes.
Many bees have chosen shoes in royal blue, purple, navy, red, green, blush, yellow, etc. to add a pop of color to their looks. Likewise, many bees are beginning to choose to mix metals in their ring stacks. Given that, I think people will find it interesting — and not think of it as a fashion faux pas — if you choose to mix bronze shoes with the silver tone of your sash.

Mismatched is totally the way to go! I like it

Yes! Bronze/gold shoes and the silver beading totally go together. The not mixing metals/colors is an old fashion rule that is meant to be broken. You won’t be able to see your peep toe shoes under your dress anyway. Rock it, girl!

@BlondeBee: yes they are pretty too.
@gelaine22: The nude ones are my second option.
thanks for the responses

Thanks for the encouragment. I was really drawn to those shoes at the store. The other colors are pretty, but there was something about these.
And I think they look better in person

You won’t see them under the dress anyway.
