On the wedding day, people will ask what is the brand of your dress and shoes. I want to buy designers shoes but they are way too expensive. Some websites sell knock offs but its embarassing to say to go so and so designer shoes and you know they are knock offs. What would you do? Buy affordable brands like Jessica simpson or Nina shoes and say the brand with pride or say you brought expensive designers and know they are knockoffs or even worse, say they are knockoffs.

I didn’t have a single person ask me the brand of my dress or my shoes. Not before, during, or after the wedding.

Who asks the brand of your shoes?! That’s so weird. I love shoes but I wouldn’t even ask that.

I think if you usually wear designers, then they might ask “whos shoes do you have” but if you normally dont, then no one will probably even ask you! If you saw something that you like that isnt designer, just get them! If you can afford a designer shoe then go for it!!

I agree with others that no one is really going to notice your shoes, most especially if you are wearing a gown. But I do realize that certain people value certain things, and that may include brand names… personally, I would not buy a knockoff knowing it’s a knockoff.

@Plum_mer: What? People ask that? On what planet? HOW RUDE

@Plum_mer: I don’t know anyone who has ever been asked about the brand/designer of her shoes. But then again, none of my friends are socialites.

I had 230 people at my wedding. No one asked me what designer I was wearing. I actually wore some yellow Nina shows and people did comment on how much they loved them.

The affordable, pretty shoes for sure!
Why do you think people will ask you the brand name of your wedding shoes? How strange! I have never heard of that. Anyway, it would be the worst thing to have to lie, right? and almost as bad to say they were a knockoff. If you want to answer them, just answer the true non-designer brand name, with head held high (it is not embarrassing in any way).
However, it’s kind of strange and materialistic for people to ask you the brand name of your wedding shoes. No matter whether the shoes were expensive, cheap, or in the middle, I would probably ignore the question to try to tell them to “think deeper! Ask me better questions about my wedding than that!”

I don’t think anyone will me asking you what brand they are. I bought mine from Nordstrom for $80 and have no idea what brand they are off the top of my head. Buy them because you love them and can afford them; not because of what other people might say.

Not a single person will ask you who made your shoes. Although I did have a couple of people ask who made my dress.

The only time I’ve witnessed someone ask about shoes is when the person was known to always have amazing designer shoes (and she did have some craaaay Louboutins with studs on them). Otherwise, I’d think it would be very odd to ask about shoes.

Aside from on WeddingBee, no one really cares about your shoes or dress designers!
I woudn’t buy knock-off shoes because you can’t check the comfort level (and comfort before brand with shoes you’ll be wearing for 10 or so hours) of, but there are some really nice mid-price brands.
If you really want high-end designer, you could always check eBay for slightly used Louboutins or Valentino! I did! I ended up with a pair of Badgley Michka shoes for $65 new in box, still with the $325 price tag!

@Plum_mer: Nobody cares about the shoes. You, however, will have to stand and walk in them for hours. So if they aren’t comfortable they fail, no matter how pretty or expensive they are.
