I really love the concept of a brightly colored shoe – I’m doing grass green – but having the hardest time finding my shoe in the right shade. I can custom dye the shoe, but it will cost $150, nonreturnable. Is $150 too much, or is everyone else spending more than they’d usually on their shoes? I normally don’t spend this on shoes!

I personally had set a budget for myself of $100 for wedding shoes, but I fall in love with shoes vvery quickly, so it was hard to stay on track within my budget, but it was possible. But, when it comes to a color, it’s even harder to find, so if you’re absolutely convinced this is the shoe, then go for it. I’m sure you normally don’t spend that much on a dress either right? If you can afford it, do it to give you piece of mind and no regrets in case you don’t find something else.

I definitely spent way more on my wedding shoes than I ever would on every day shoes. I figured it is the one time in my life that I am going to wear a dress over a thousand dollars and therefore it should be the first time that I’ve ever worn shoes so expensive. That is what I tell myself to make myself feel better about the splurge anyway 🙂

If it is the right shoe, I would spend that much; however, if you are going to dye them, you need to consider if your feet will get wet. I have heard that when you get your shoes dyed, they can sometimes bleed onto your feet.
I got my shoes at ninashoes.com. They have some that are apple green in the same shoe that I purchased. Here is the link: http://ninashoes.com/electra-apple-green–13975

I spent $260 for my Calvin Klein shoes. I got 2 pairs—high heels and the flat sandal version of the heels. I would say if you LOVE the shoe than $150 isn’t too much.

I see where you are coming from. Seriously $150 for shoes that you will probably only wear one day, but isn’t your wedding the best excuse to do that. I don’t think it is a bad price for having that fun detail at your wedding.

I can’t remember the last time I ever bought a pair of shoes for UNDER $150 (and I’m a student, it’s not like I’m rolling in dough). To me, shoes are one of the LAST things you should skimp on, especially if they are heels, because you are going to be feeling the quality ALL DAY LONG. Poorly-made shoes HURT.

The shoes Im getting are 160 not incl. tax but i think its a good price…As long as the shoe looks good then its 150 well spent : )

I agree with many of the above posters. If it’s in your budget and they’re the shoes you really want, get them! One of the few things I really splurged on was my shoes… they actually happen to be a pair that I had wanted for a very long time. It was way more than I had ever spent on a pair of shoes but I’m so happy with my decision!
Get the shoes 😉

I agree, shoes are something that I buy in quality over quantity. To me, it’s much more worth it to spend more money on a beautiful pair of wedding shoes that I’ll wear again than to be uncomfortable all night and not feel fabulous!

I was over the moon when I heard that Cole Haan was adopting Nike technology for its newest bridal shoes. They run about $265 – yikes – but well worth it for a Converse wearing gal who will be rockin the heels all day. I haven’t tried them on yet though.
I was in BCBG looking for a dress for a black-tie fancy schmancy snooty wedding I have to attend. The salesgirl gave me a pair of heels to wear while I tried dresses on. Apparently, a lot of their heels are really comfortable! They are about $150-225. So those are in the running as well…Since my dress is gold and sparkly and kind of busy, I’m waiting until it comes in to pick shoes.

My wedding shoes are $80 – I own other (everyday) pumps that cost twice as much – but I figure they are white so I’ll never wear them again – and not many guests will even see them. It was less of a priority to me.
