    @scqt13:  I just noticed you are in LA.  Nordstrom was out of the size I wanted too and I was planning to order online.  Before I did, I ended up on Rodeo Drive for another random reason – and didn’t even realize there was a Jimmy Choo store there.  They had a TON more options and lots of sizes to try.  It might be worth a call to see if they are available and a visit to try them on.  If your feet are wide at all, they might be too narrow.  I was SOOOO bummed out because I’d been thinking about the shoes for so long, finally got over the cost factor, and was ready to make the leap – and then – d’oh!  they didn’t FIT!

    I loveeeeeee shoes, clothes, makeup, everything! With that said I cared very much about my shoes. I bought a pair of Loubs and I’m going to order a pair of Jimmy Choos also (both for my wedding day). Dont judge me! haha

     

    OP….keep your Choos!!!

    I think functionally, shoes are extremely important. youve got enough things to worry about, you shouldn’t have to be thinking about your feet at all.

    visually, it depends on the dress. my dress is really short so the shoes are definitely on show all day! even then, I still made sure to get comfy shoes. I hate the look of super high shoes anyway, and my fiancé and I are around the same height so I don’t want to look taller than him in photos, because thats not really representing us as we usually are!

    I just did the same thing…. I was at the store with my mom and she actually talked me into them and said I only get to be a princess one day…..and that I need to be comfortable. And it wouldn’t be worth even $80 if they are uncomfortable.

    Enjoy your jimmys!!! Also you’ll be able to wear them after on lots of occasions! 🙂

    I bought/returned shoes for MONTHS in order to find a comfy pair of low heels and finally bought a pair of Jimmy Choos last month.  I’m a size 11 and my feet are freakishly flat- it was totally worth it to splurge on well made shoes.  Just think of it as a better investment, since we have more foot per $$ than small-footed women Wink

     

    Oh and I bought a 41.5 for the shoe below, which ran small.  Not sure which shoe you ordered, but you might have to return and get a bigger size if you didn’t size up.

    I am kind of practical when it comes to the shoes. I wanted something comfortable but bridal but something Icould wear again. I would totally have bought a cute pair of Jimmy Choo’s if I could find a pair that met the criteria I had. Instead I bought these Nina’s from Nordstrom and I LOVE them

    @scqt13:  I would just like to sympathize with your “sasquatch” sized feet – I’m an 11, and sometimes 12 as well. And since I just can’t go out to any store and find cute shoes like everyone else, when I do find a pair that I love (and don’t have much of a heel, I’m 5’9”) I get them! So you go, girl!

    @scqt13:  I am dreading shoe shopping.  

    First off, I am not very graceful in heels.  Sprained an ankle some years back, and my ankle folds over on me all the time, when it is least expected.

    I wear a size 6, but my feet are a little on the wide side….platypus feet.

    I am having an outdoor ceremony, and finding any strappy sexy wedges is next to impossible, unless I want to spend $$$$ on shoes that I will probably only wear one time.

    I want to definitely have some heel, because I am short.

    I say the shoes are important, I am already looking……even though I am 450+ days out.  I find something I like and I may have to get the dress to suit the shoes.  But they have to be comfortable, and I have to be able to walk in them.

    Keep the shoes.  It is about you, and do what makes you feel beautiful.

    I believe you mean “ensemble.”
