I bought a pair of giuseppe zanotti for my wedding dRess.  So incredibly comfortable! It was amazing. I didn’t mind spending a lot of money on shoes bc I’d know they’d get plenty of wear after the wedding. I originally wanted jimmy choo and did find some I loved. I find the majority of their shoes quite comfortAble. mahnolo and louibies are horribly uncomfortable for me (e person is diff of corse) and find wearing expensive shoes pointless of they’re not comfortable. Also have become a huge fan of prada and miu miu. 

 

Heres my 2cents- thshoe expensive shoes are made from better material and will last you much  longer. I have very picky feet, and find many shoes torture me. Most of my shoes are Betsy Johnson,BCBG, and cole HaNn. In the last year or so, I’ve started branching out to higher end designer.  If I’m spending $800 on a dress I’ll wear ONCE, why would t I spend that much or more on something I’d wear many times over my life?  

 

Point of the story-yor you can afford it- do it ๐Ÿ™‚

I splurged on Stuart Weitzman shoes and was so glad I did–even though they were over 4″ tall, I wore them all day from the time I put the dress on (3pm) until I took the dress off (1am).  I don’t think I would’ve lasted that long in a less-well-made shoe (although the adrenaline counted for something, I’m sure).

Plus, fun pics!

I’m looking into getting some Badgley Mischka’s. They’re pricey, but not over the top. I like their bridal line.

I got Jimmy Choo’s. I really wanted Louboutins, but when I tried them on they were horribly uncomfortable and I have a long and heavy train on my wedding dress so I needed “comfort” heels. The Choo’s I picked were perfect. Comfy, and I was walking around as if I had flats on. On several occassion my Darling Husband and bms would have to ask me to slow down since they were following behind carrying my train/veil and couldn’t keep up!

I bought a pair of Jimmy Choos – but because bargain hunting is part of my soul – I just couldn’t get over how much they were.   So I returned them…

…and bought them on ebay for 200 bucks less   ๐Ÿ™‚

The fit and the comfort are definitely noticably better than cheaper shoes, but more affordable shoes can certainly be broken in and look great too. The nice thing about a classic pair of high end shoes is that you can, and will wear them again.

I’m planning to get a pair of Louboutins or Jimmy Choos, but my practical side has convinced me to get a nude patent pair that I can wear easily after my wedding.

I have Gina Campari for the day, and Isabel by Jimmy Choo for the evening. Both can be worn again after; I personally would never go for out-and-our bridal as a) I hate satin, and b) I wouldn’t wear them again.

I own 4 pairs of Gina’s and 4 pairs of JCs, as well as a few pairs by more ‘high street’ deisgners like Kurt Geiger. IMPO, they are worth the money; they do not date (one of my pairs of JCs is 9 years old, and they look like they were made yesterday; whereas cheaper shoes you can instantly tell if they’re old due to things like the heel shape, etc). They are also very comfortable; the soles are leather and slightly padded, and I can wear them for hours and hours, whereas I’m usually dying to get cheaper shoes off after an hour as they rub and burn. The after-sales experience is also good; I recently had new elastic put on my favourite JCs (about 4 years old, and they’ve had a LOT of wear), for £15 (about $23), and had the heels recovered (I snagged them) for about $65. Which sounds a lot, but they’re hand done, and they’ve done a beautiful job (def won’t be snagging them again lol).

I wear my designer shoes time and time again, and it was never an option for me to get cheaper shoes for my wedding; I want them to look beautiful, I want them to be comfortable, and I want to be able to wear them time and time again after. So personally, I would go for it; but I’m biased ๐Ÿ˜‰
