So, I had the cutest pair of Badgely Mischkas picked out for my wedding. Silvery gray shoes as displayed below.
Then the other week I had my dress fitting with the seamstress and we realized that the hem of my gown was totally uneven! Gasp! It’s fine, there was plenty of length left, but it meant that I would have to go with 3″ heels instead of the 4″ Badgelys.
I’m a bit of a shoe whore, and to me it seems that all the really super cute heels these days are 3.5 inches or higher, a lot with platform to boot. And I’d been planning on getting a pair of platforms for running around on cobblestone streets for photos. So since I had to get new shoes anyway, I went for all of my qualifications at once and ended up with these champagne colored shoes.
They are low enough, they have the ankle strap for dancing, and they have wedges. Totally practical. So I’m going to keep them and wear them, but they just don’t make my heart sing 🙁
Anybody else end up with a less than ideal pair of shoes?

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? Could you wear the Badgely Mishkas for another event, like rehersal dinner? Thats what Im considering doing…

It’s true, I usually don’t mind buying new shoes 🙂 I guess I was sad about buying a pair that I don’t absolutely love, and therefore may not wear again. I guess they’ll be good for outdoor weddings.
I’d wear the Badgely’s for the rehearsal dinner, but I was already planning on wearing THESE Badgely’s, lol.

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:

I think those are very fun! I was thinking about trying to re-do the wedge on the shoes I just bought. They’re more of a champagny-gold and I’d rather they came off silver, but…not sure if I should add it on at this point 🙂

@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!! 🙂
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!!
