I have had the worst time chosing shoes.  I actually have four pairs that are for the wedding and I can’t guarantee that I will not buy others.  I will wear them all for something else no matter what, but the wedding has been a great excuse to come home with shoe boxes and the FH never says a word.

HA I’ve probably ordered (and sent back) at least 15-20 different pairs because of fit, height, color, etc.  I cannot find the right shoe.

My wedding shoes found me when I wasn’t even looking (and hadn’t even THOUGHT about looking yet).

They were sample shoes at the Sak’s bridal salon. Last pair in all of Sak’s and exactly my size.

ETA: But I’m sure if I was actively on the hunt for them, it would be nearly impossible.

I’m totally agree.  Somehow I found my wedding gown the first time I ever went to try on dresses, and somehow I also have 2 unworn pairs of shoes “for the wedding” in my closet and 2 more on the way!  Definitely the hardest decision of the whole wedding.

I had something pretty specific in mind, so it wasn’t too tough.

That said, I’ve ordered the shoes but they haven’t arrived yet. Hope I still love them when they get here! Otherwise this process will become much more difficult!

Meh. Unless your dress is short, no one will see your shoes anyway. Keeping that in mind makes the decision easier.

I bought the second dress I tried on… but I went through over 30 pairs of shoes before finding the right ones… and it was worth it!!!

Not just you, I have something vaguely specific (height, type/colour, price etc) and that has made it SO HARD to find shoes that I like & that are comfortable.

I have been looking and looking for shoes LONGER than I looked for a dress (seriously, I have been engaged for almost 4 years now & I have been looking for shoes since early 09!).

Yes! totally! I bought 3 pairs of shoes and none were the right size. Drove me crazy. FINALLY found my shoes after the 4th try. It’s been THE hardest thing to accesorize.

@missmouse29 – and you have it even worse, since most of the online retailers have shipping restrictions! (hugs!)
