I’m working on finding shoes but I’m having a hard time finding white ones I like, and the more I look at colored shoes, the more I like them! I asked my mom what she would say if I said I want fuchsia shoes (our colors are fuchsia and orange), and she responded with, “I’d say you’re insane and I’m wearing a tie-dyed dress… and dad’s wearing a speedo.” So… clearly she doesn’t like the idea of colored shoes. Usually we have pretty similar taste in things (we both individually picked out the dress I ended up buying when we saw it on the store’s website, without knowing the other liked the same one), and she’s not usually overly critical or argumentative with my decisions.
Now I never thought I’d wear colored shoes, but I’m really liking some of them. Here are the shoes I’m debating between now:

What do you think? Here’s a picture of my dress, too.

I don’t know why someone voted that they “aren’t appropriate”? White goes with everything. Wear whatever color you like!!
I’m a personal fan of anything that is fuschia!

I’m loving the tangerine…but I am a little biased because it’s one of our colors! 🙂

I really like the Ninas… but I clicked too quickly and didn’t vote in the poll! I think they’d look nice in any color, and I love the bow 🙂

I think you should wear colored shoes, if that is what you want to do. From the list you have given, I prefer the RSVP Fanciful in fuchsia and the Caparros Odessy in fuchsia. If the Electras came in fuchsia, I would have voted for those. I will be wearing the Electras in China blue.

My mother doesn’t like the idea of colored shoes either but frankly, I don’t care. Our colors are burnt orange and chocolate brown so I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect shade of orange for mine.
I say go for the colored shoes!

@noritake22: I love the Electra’s too… and they do come in a fuchsia… but the color doesn’t look quite right (compared to our colors) online… no idea if it would be different in person.

Love that last shoe with the bow! Above anything, make sure your shoes are at least tolerable in the comfort department…or you could always get some cute bright flats for dancing!

@jam: I’m already planning on some nice platform flip flops for after dinner =) And I have an easier time in higher shoes than shorter, anyway… for my brother’s wedding last year, I wore ones very similar to the Electra’s and didn’t take them off from about 1pm until 2am. lol.

@HappyCrickets: If you decide to purchase the Electras, they fit very true to size. I wear a 6 1/2 and they fit perfectly. Also, some people say they run narrow, so you might want to order a 1/2 a size up, if you decide to order from them.

I wore pink shoes in our wedding, and I’m so glad I did. I loved them. It made me feel special to wear something besides white.
If you want to wear colored shoes, then I say go for it. You won’t regret it!

I decided when I got engaged that I would wear fuchsia heels, now I am torn. Mostly because the grandparents and Future Mother-In-Law hate the idea. I love the nina electra in fuchsia and tangerine. I also like Martinez Valero in white or blue…it could be your something blue. I like them so much I am going to add them to my favorites

I voted for the Odessy… but I’m very partial to fuschia as I’ll be wearing that color shoes as well! My dress is light gold opposed to white, but white matches everything! I think it’s a fun detail that adds style to your wedding.
What color are your bridesmaids wearing? That’s who my shoes will be matching.

@HappyCrickets: perfect excuse for fuschia heels, then!
