Ladies, I cannot make a decision. I am trying to pick a pair of shoes to go with my wedding dress–please help! Price is not a concern. All three have the same heel – a 1.5" kitten heel – and are comfortable/danceable. Other note–A is the only one I remembered to take a fuller-length picture (hip-down; I’m paranoid about having pics of me in my dress before the wedding), so I used my mad computer skillz to edit the other two shoes into the same picture to give you an idea.
Pictures of all three are here: http://s247.photobucket.com/albums/gg125/blushingaudrey/
Shoe A – Plain satin pump–the toe is somewhere between round and pointy and is really beautiful. It has a stitched-on bow. I hate bows, so I was planning on snipping it off and covering any mark up with a small pearl/rhinestone button or shoe clip. Fits like a glove and is the most comfortable. White (would be dyed, even though the flash in the pictures makes it look very close to the dress color). Also closed toe+november wedding=a good thing?
Shoe B – Sandal with ankle strap and ruched cross front vamp with rhinestone detail. I like the sparkle. Fits well and is pretty darn comfy too. White (would be dyed, even though the flash in the pictures makes it look very close to the dress color).
Shoe C – Sandal with ankle strap and plain skinny front vamp. The simplicity competed the least with my dress. Comfortable, although the least so of the three. Ivory (while the flash pics make it look different from my dress it is actually quite close).
Soo…. what do you think? Brutal honestly is okay–they are all returnable or easily resellable! Thank you!!

I’m a bling kind of girl so if I have to pick between the 3 I would pick shoe #2!

I have to say if I have to pick one I would choose 2. However I like the closed toe look the best (like you I don’t like the bow) so can I choose option 4 – pointier closed toed shoe with some bling (shoe clips)? The rounded toes of number 3 just don’t look dressy enough to me.

Hey thanks guys–I’m surprised at the unaniminity. 🙂 I think A is my personal fave but with B as a very close second–and I will definitely use a shoe clip with some sparkle on A if I go that route! I like the ones at Absolutely Audrey: http://absolutelyaudrey.com/products_bridal.html esp. Grace, Audrey, Penelope, and Faith.
I tried a pointier toe and it just didn’t look right–not soft enough for the look I’m going for. But the toe of A is not as round as it looks from these pictures, and definitely not the super round little girl look of some round toes I’ve seen.
Any other opinions? Thanks for your help!

I like C best–I like how it doesn’t compete with the dress. I think A is my least favorite, but I generally don’t like dressy closed-toe shoes.

#2 or #1. I like the simplicity of 1 but I think it might be too plane so… Although with a clip to dress it up it would be perfect.

I like #2 the best, #1 next and #3 last.

I’m going to go against the majority and say A.
I think you will be glad of the closed toe in November AND I think it compliments the dress the best. The others look too "sandally" (if that’s a word)– with the low heel they look more like summer sundress shoes than gown shoes.
