I was wondering has anyone bought davids bridal shoes and then had them dye them. I had to return my shoes as they were to tall for my dress…go figure… anyway I need to go shorter. I talked with Davids Bridal and asked if I could return the original pair, they said NO but i could exchange them. Great. So I found a pair and am having them dyed the horizon blue, which is one of my colors. Im nervous and not super excited about them but they will do, Im a tall heel kinda girl so going with 3 inch heels is killing me. Anyway back on track. Once they took the shoes the lady at David’s then told me that the dye may stain my feet for a while if it gets wet…WHAT?!?!? It took me a minute and a few questions to make sure i wouldnt have Smurf colored feet at my wedding.
So My question is has anyone had there shoes dyed at David’s? IF so did the turn your feet colors?
My fear is looking like i trampled a small village of smurfs on my wedding day lol 🙂
Also if you have any ideas on 3inch heels that are amazing 😉 please share, I may need back up shoes.

I had my shoes dyed ivory colored to match my wedding dress at David’s Bridal. She never mentioned anything about it to me, although ivory isnt a strong color like horizon blue. Maybe you should wear them around the house and see if the color runs. Or maybe put a powder on your feet for nonsweat.

@SummerLove24: I was thinking to do both of those, but then I thought what if I get a fabric clear coat type of spray??? Maybe Im not sure still looking into that.

I was just googling this topic, and yes, some girls had a moisture sealant coat on their shoes. Maybe you could call David’s and see if they offer it? And if they don’t, deffinately purchase from a shoe store with advice first because you don’t wan’t to ruin your shoes

@FutureArmyWife12: I have never had shoes dyed by DB, however, way back when it became popular I went to Jr./Sr. formal when I was 15. My mom had some hot pink ones dyed to match my dress at Payless, and yes, it rained that evening. It did turn my feet alittle pink, but honestly, no one was really looking at my feet. Also, there were water spots on my shoes. However, I do not believe that had sealants back then. I am assuming that they have made the technology better over 19 years, I would hope anyway. Good luck!

I used to work at David’s Bridal and we didn’t put sealants on shoes–that was a DIY thing. The associates are the one’s who dye shoes and bags (I’ve done my fair share), so I can tell you the easiest way to get it off is using alcohol wipes as soon as you notice the stain.
