All I can say is, you have my sympathies!  Not only am I a size 11, but my width is AAAA.  It has been suggested that I shop for shoes in a canoe store.  At my first wedding back in 1977, I could not find any wedding shoes that would fit me, and ended up with size 10 sandals (so at least my toes wouldn’t be bumping into the end of them).  This time around, I found some flats I loved on eBay.

Anyway, good luck on finding shoes that you love–that also fit.

Ugh, I feel you! Many places/designers don’t even make my size anymore. I fall in love with shoes and realize that it’s not just that they’re sold out, but that they never even carried them. 

My biggest lifesavers have been http://www.shopstyle.com (searches the internet for you. You can set it to size and brand, color, style, etc.) and Ebay, which also has a great search feature. It helps to narrow down size FIRST so that you don’t have to go through loving a shoe only to realize they don’t have your size. 

ETA: I think these are pretty cute!

DSW has a HUGE clearance section for the bigger sizes! At least my local store does!

If it makes you feel any better, it’s just as bad for those of us with small feet!  Like lilyfaith, I’ve found that many designers don’t even make shoes in my size anymore 🙁

Don’t be scared of buying online thorugh reputable sites, though! I buy all the time through Zappos or Piperlime–free shipping both ways and easy returns policies, so if the shoes don’t fit, I just send ’em back for a full refund and I’m out absolutely nothing.

I don’t know what style you’re looking for and I mostly check out pretty high heels (the advantage of being 5’2″ is that it’s likely your Fiance will be taller than you are, heehee), but I did a quick Zappos search and found some cute stuff in your sizes; I think you’ll be fine–good luck!
