Ok so has anyone had experience with dyeing shoes for their wedding? I am having my girls all get whatever shoe they want as long as its dyeable and then I’m having them all dyed apple green. However, I’m not sure if this will be too big of a risk and turn out a disaster or if its no big deal.
Anyone ran across this before with advise??

make sure that you take them all to the same place at the same time and take a swatch of fabric to make sure you have the exact color you want – don’t just look and think it’s close – the shoes my sister had us get for her wedding were ones we were to dye and we all got the wrong color – they were all blue – but none were as dark as our dress – and the fact that the dresses were tea lenght made it so there was no way to hide it.

Thanks for the post. I was wondering the same thing. I was considering getting a pair of dyeables and having them dyed tiffany blue. Hopefully someone with success can help.

if possible have al the girls get their shoes from the same designer in different styles. different fabrics will take dye differently. thefuturemerjohnson said the most important things though , take them all to the same place and have a swatch. Good luck

My friend had a horrible experience with dyed shoes one year at prom. Her date had some sort of liquid on the floor of the passenger seat and it leaked onto her shoes. The dye came off in splotches. Her dressed covered her shoes so no one noticed.
I have been wary of them ever since.

Have your girls scotch guard the shoes before the big day!

Will scotch guarding them prevent them from bleeding onto you dress or feet? This is my big concern.

I actually dyed my prom shoes apple green in highschool. I LOVED them! I think that if you buy your shoes from a store that carries dyables, they may dye them for you.
