totally feel your pain! Although I have the opposite issue! My wedding shoes were the first thing I bought, and then my seamstress hemmed my dress too long, and long story short it wont be easy to have it hemmed again. So, off in search of higher shoes…le sigh… I suppose we could have worse problems that HAVING to buy more shoes, right? Wink Could you wear the Badgely Mishkas for another event, like rehersal dinner? Thats what Im considering doing…

I wanted to have a nice pair of of purple heels; but our entire wedding is outside on the grass so I had to get wedges.  I couldn’t find any nice purple wedges at all so I ended up making some. They aren’t ideal; but they’ll have to do. Here are the before:

And the after:

@catlin63: Thanks!  I hope they don’t turn my feet purple. I used some alcohol dye from scrapbooking to dye the fabric.  For the wedge part I just used modge podge and glitter. It was really easy. Took a couple of hours. I painted on the glue sprinkled on the glitter and after it dried I put on a coat of glue to seal it.

I am a shoe whore too. I bought my shoes before anything else. I just walked into Peeptoe and they called to me. A little out of my budget but I had to make them mine!! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

I have made lots of compromises since, for budget reasons, to make other people happy, timelines etc. and I regret almost everything. At least I will not regret these puppies!

You need to go shoe hunting, do not wear shoes you don’t love to your wedding!!
