I only wear mine for fooling around, as it were – I bought white ones and have no reason to wear white shoes anywhere.  But… mine cost 13 bucks so it was hardly a loss.  Nothing would induce me to spend a hundred bucks on something I knew I wouldn’t wear twice (I was cheap with my dress, too).  You could get something that can be dyed after, though, if you’re really set on a certain pair.

I haven’t! I bought Betsey Johnson flat sandals. They didn’t even show under my dress. I don’t know why I thought I’d wear them again.

I had custom Nikes, so yes, I’ve worn them again.

I did wear my shoes after the wedding, but I also wore them before. They were my great great grandmother’s, hot pink kitten heels. I wore them because they were comfortable, I liked them, and I thought it was a giant waste of money to buy new shoes that absolutely nobody was going to see. My opinion is the minority, I’m aware, but I feel like if you’re going to spend money on something (especially over a hundred dollars for a pair of shoes) you had better use it enough to get your money’s worth. I’d go for a nice pair you could wear after the wedding, and still get some joy out of.

Yep! I bought ivory peep toe with blinged out heels – no one saw under my wedding dress. I just wore them to a holiday party. Paid $90, I’ll rock them where I can.

Yes, I have worn them since the wedding. They are gold Jimmy Choos–they are very versatile and comfortable.

shakeyourhips :  yes I’ve worn my wedding shoes several times since the wedding, they’re just really pretty sparkly mid heel shoes.

The flat shoes I had planned to have available to change into I forgot in the bridal suite so actually never got to wear them at the wedding, however I didn’t buy them for the wedding, they were just cute flats I already owned and had worn lots for like a year before the wedding (and plenty of times since). 

Here’s a couple of examples of my wedding shoe use after the wedding:

 

 

I did consider the future use of all my wedding accessories, the dress understandably won’t exactly get a lot of future use but no reason why your shoes and accessories can’t transcend into your normal wardrobe.

Nope.  I never expected to wear them again.  I know myself and tend to wear the same 10 pairs of shoes, so I set my budget accordingly.  Had I splurged, I would have definitely wanted to wear them again.  There are a lot of good sales this time of year.  Maybe you’ll be able to take advantage of that?

I have two pairs of shoes that I already own (nude patent leather peep-toe pumps, and gold sparkly strappy sandals) that both have about a 4 inch heel. I’m planning to wear one of them with my wedding dress, not sure which yet. I’ve already worn both of them a bunch of times and I’m sure I’ll continue wearing them after the wedding too.

I bought a pair of flats for my wedding.  They are gold and very glittery.  I haven’t worn them yet, but if we end up going out for New Year’s Eve, I think they’ll be perfect for that.  I paid about $35 for them, so even if I only wear them a couple more times, it will have been a great deal.

shakeyourhips :  I wore my shoes out all last summer after my April wedding. They were cheap, cute, and super comfortable! Not that they could be seen under my wedding dress anyways.

shakeyourhips :  I’m gonna a wear shoes I already own and have worn 100 times. I’m not a shoe girl so no point in going nuts over this plus no one will see it.
