    I personally love shoes with crystals, but I don’t like the purple shoes that you have picked out. To me, the larger glitter on the shoes looks more “Halloween Costume” than elegant.

    These are Swavroski crystals and I like them a lot better for a wedding:

    I agree with texaslawgirl.  Sorry, but I do not like these.  They look a little cheap, like the glitter would flake off all over the place.  I do think you can find a nice pair of sparkly shoes within your budget if you keep looking though!

    I love them!! But then again I LOVE bright colors and things that pop. 

    Honestly I wouldn’t wear them but with my wedding dress, or an 80s party. But JUST IN CASE I would keep them around for ever and wear them if I had the chance…

    I ‘m weird I know…

    Personally, I LOVE them… but it definitely depends on your dress & wedding “feel.” I almost got them (in gold/bronze) for my wedding… but my dress is very plain & my wedding is in Vegas… so… sorta fits!

    Meh…I’m not loving them nor hating them.  Glitter isn’t really MY thing.  I agree that the way they made those look a little cheap.  But if you’re looking for fun, I’d say you found the shoe.

    I think major glitter is pretty tacky, BUT I think major glitter is also wicked awesome and I love tacky stuff. If your wedding is going to be elegant and traditional, then no, they won’t work. But if it’s modern and funky, then go for it!

    I agree with texaslawgirl.  The glitter on the first one looks like a at home craft project more than a shoe.  I would try to see the shoes first before buying it.  They also make glitter shoes with finer grain glitter that looks better.

    Those shoes are a DIY project by a girl off of The Purse Forum (not sure if you read that or not). She took a plain pair of Christian Louboutins and “strassed” them, or glued Swavroski crystals ALL over them (our bee, TheRen, is curently doing this also!)

    Here is a link to her DIY tutorial:

    Those shoes are really fun, but they don’t really scream sophisticated bride. If you love them, I’d buy them and save the shoes for a party 🙂
