I found some really cute ballet slippers online, that I’m going to order to wear with my dress (I have a short groom :)). I see that they are dyeable, so I had the thought that I could get a pair for each of my bridesmaids and dye them the same color as their dresses (Burgundy).
I’ve never dyed shoes before, how much does it cost on average? Does it take long to dye them? The wedding is at the end of June. Any advice on dyeing shoes?
Here are the shoes:

Check out this link I found online about dying shoes:
This is what I did for shoes that I needed for a wedding I was in. They were navy blue and I applied the dye with a tooth brush.
The only bad thing was, after the wedding I had a blue ring around the top of my foot from the dye bleeding onto my skin. It wasn’t too bad though!
You can also take them to a shoe repair place I belive. Maybe about $20!

Thanks karieck05, that is a great link.
When you dyed your shoes, did the color look blotchy at all? I’m thinking I might try dyeing them myself.

It actually didn’t look blotty at all! The color went on way better than I expected! It actually took me no time at all! I was using navy blue and any blots probably wouldn’t have shown up! Hopefully you have the same experience with Burgundy!!

Make sure to clean your shoes before dyeing. Apply dye with the brush or the sponge in a light coat. Let the first coat dye .I have been adding ideas that I came across in my gift registry at </font><font face=”Times New Roman” size=”3″>http://www.mydreamhomeregistry.com</font><p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”><font face=”Times New Roman” size=”3″>Repeat the operation to even up the color. Use a third coat if necessary.</font><p style=”margin: 0in 0in 0pt” class=”MsoNormal”><font face=”Times New Roman” size=”3″>Cheers</font>
