- Wedding: September 2013
I volunteered for the last year at an AIDS center in South Africa where many of my former patients bead everything from necklaces to jewelry and most recently a pair of beaded pumps for the Olympics (shown below). They have graciously agreed to bead a pair of pumps in blue hues for my wedding day so they can be a part of my special day, but I’m having a hard time deciding on which pair to purchase. If I was not worried about mailing shoes through a somewhat sketchy mail system I would purchase lovely pair of Louboutin, however there is no way to guarantee they would actually get to the recipient based upon their resale value.
My purchasing hang ups are as followed:
-Wedding colors are midnight blue and coral; do I purchase a blue pair of pumps so the un-beaded heel does not look strange being white?
-Do I purchase dyeable shoes and try to get them as close to midnight blue as possible?
-Any suggestions on navy or dyeable shoes that are plain or have a small embellishment on them that are stylish, comfortable and cost effective?
