After much stressing, a week of sleepless nights and 6 dress appointments later, I finally said YES to a dress!!
I went with the Casablanca 1997 in ivory…. because I have less than 11 weeks to go, I had to go with a sample, but I love it! It has the sweetheart neckline I was hoping for, and I surprised myself by loving the soft tulle it has. I’m indecisive about the flowers. Might go with all, some, or none.
My question is such: I was hoping to wear my TOMS shoes at the wedding. We’re going with a fun, outdoor/backyard BBQ/picnic style, complete with croquet on the lawn. It’s relaxed, quirky (totally using FI’s fav StarWars theme in the wedding at some point), comfortable, and the start of a new adventure. The bridal consultant suggested going with dressier or sparkly TOMS if any, but I really was thinking of wearing my orange linen ones I got recently (especially as an OSU graduate – go BEAVS)….suggestions?

I am considering TOMS only because I may have to hike a half mile to my location!
Overall, TOMS don’t go with a wedding gown I’m sure we can mostly agree. BUT people who are considering TOMS are either wanting something for comfort, making a statement, or really just love the shoes. Overall they don’t go. But that’s not the point if you’re considering TOMS, know what I mean?
If you go to greenweddingshoes.com and search for TOMS you’ll see plenty of photos of brides though.

hahaha. I opened this thinking you were asking if you should wear TOMS in Casablanca. (I just went to Morocco in April).
I say go for it!

Im wearing TOMS at our reception but mine are crochet and they are white. I think orange might stand out. If you don’t mind it might be fun.

I have no shoe advice (I’m pretty shoe-stupid) but I just wanted to say that your dress is gorgeous!

I think you should go with what you want.
Is it my style and would I do it personally? Nope.
But that doesn’t matter! It’s your day, and anything goes!

It’s your day so why not have a little fun with the orange! Don’t get another pair of Toms unless you like them too and will wear them again. Lovely dress btw!!

Yes!! If someone had handed me TOMS and run off with my five inch heels, I would be sending them flowers every year on my anniversary!! Be comfortable!

Go for it! I’m wearing pink converse with my wedding dress. People look at me like I’m crazy when I tell them that, but oh well. 🙂 I don’t think that many people will be paying close attention to my feet anyway. By The Way, love your hunger games pic!

I was told by someone who was married recently that she stressed about which shoes she was going to wear and in the end it didn’t matter AT ALL! They are hidden under your dress for the majority of the day and if you really want some “pretty shoe with dress photos” you can put some on and then change into something comfy later! I want to be comfortable and able to move around all day so I am definitely going with some shoes I love and can walk in! I say go with toms!!!

First of all, that dress is freaking gorgeous!! It’s so soft and romantic, a little whimsical. Love it! And you look amazing in it too. I say rock the orange TOMS. No one will even see them, most likely, and you will be comfortable all day and get some cute wedding pics out of them. It’s your day, do what you want! 🙂
