My first thread, yay!
The more I try on/order online & return bridal shoes, the longer my list of must-have-criteria gets. I’m seriously starting to consider just buying the fluffy bridal UGG flip flops since probably no one will see my shoes anyway.
My current criteria for shoes are:
Black, navy, or blush pink
Flats, but preferably 2″-2.75″ heel
No peep toe, no pointy toe
Not patent leather
Preferrably under $120, but if it was something I could wear again I would spend more.
Anyone have any suggestions/input abou the UGG flip flops?

I was having similar toruble, then I got some DIY insppiration from these boards. If you can find what you want in shape, then you can put fabric over it in the color you want and add any embellishments you want. I think I’m going that route now 🙂

I’m right there with you, NY125. I ordered my dress the ‘petite size’, and as such I am not able to wear heels any higher than two inches. Problem is, cute shows with that low of heel are proving very difficult (if not impossible) to find! I may have to end up wearing flats, but I’d really rather not! D:

@Irish Terrier: If you don’t mind slingbacks, or a peep toe I’d go with the Sharina or Inthebank by Nine West. The Sharina is a staple for Nine West cause it’s SUPER comfortable with a 2 1/2 inch heel. It comes in a variety of fabrics that are different each season. Also great brands for a shorter heel: Kate spade! Note: zappos is having a sale on Badgley Mischka Zandra heels that might be what you’re looking for in blush: http://www.zappos.com/badgley-mischka-zandra-lilac-silk
Both of the latter brands run narrow though so please take that into consideration.

Woops! I forgot to say no slingbacks 🙂
I may investigate DIY, even though I tend to be DIY-impaired. I seem to find something wrong with every shoe! I hope to find something fancy to wear, but may have to go with the backup UGG flops or toms. UGH (pun intended)!

My mom wore pretty bedroom slippers. I kinda wish I was kidding. They were satin and looked kinda like flats, though. She said she was comfortable all day.

Ahhh I am having such a hard time finding shoes as well! My list of criteria keeps growing too…
3 inches exactly – maybe 2.75.
Blush, Mint, or metallic
MUST have ankle strap or something to hold the stupid shoes on my feet! I have the hardest time keeping pumps and D’orsay shoes from slipping. Sling backs work sometimes but it really depends on the shoe.
Must be summery (peep toe or sandal)
Prefer a kind of vintage feel
I have always been picky about shoes and this is proving to be an extreme challenge!
I totally feel your pain. I would not resort to wearing fluffy flip-flop slippers though… there are plenty of cute, comfortable flats out there. The 2 inch heel is tough though.
