what if you put a satin ribbon across the top.  You’d have to get that special ?glue that makes it not fray…then, glue rhinestones or other sparklies on the heels?  what look are you going for…maybe post your dress?

They’re really not what I expected when you said they were “stripperish”.  I expected to scroll down and see super tall heels and a crazy tall platform.  I have no idea how you could jazz them up but I am confident that with the right materials you can make these shoes very “bridal”.  And since you know they’re comfortable, I’d at least try!

I don’t think that it would look ridiculous if you wore these shoes. I would not embellish them though. I would embellish my toes instead. And maybe wear a nice ankle bracelet. I almost got clear shoes and then I found a pair of blue shoes that I fell in love with. I suggest that you go to zappos to look for shoes if you don’t want to wear your clear ones. You can search by size, style, designer, color, etc. If you find a pair that you like/love, you can check the designer’s site or other sites by googling them to see if you can find them for a better price.

I agree, don’t embellish the shoes at all…a perfect pedicure and a little ankle bracelet would be perfect.

With zappos, you can order and return as many times as you want without having to pay for shipping, so you can purchase as many as you want and hopefully get the ones you want and then return the rest. My sister does it all the time.

I think you could DIY something on the clear shoes – flowers/ribbon or a sparkly applique… 

On another note, if you’re not loving the clear – have you tried Stuart Weitzman?  My mom has really tiny feet & they make size 4 heels that are gorgeous & luxurious & comfortable.  If you order them from a place like Zappos.com or piperlime.com you get free return shipping if they don’t fit. 

ETA – another option for you would be to check out childrens size ballroom dance shoes.  They’re heels and they’ll be incredibly comfortable too & literally made for dancing the night away!
