I am looking for shoes for me that match my bridesmaids dresses which are watermelon. So far everything is too fushia or too bright (including the stuart weitzman’s that I LOVE)…. so I am thinking dyable shoes from davids bridal might be what I do…… but I am worried if the ground is damp the color will run….anyone have an experience with this please give me some feedback.

The only issue I have had from Davids Bridal is with their shoes. I had mine dyed horizon, which is royal blue, and they turned out looking purple, not blue. I also noticed MANY white areas on the shoe; all around the seams, toe tip, straps. Just a very poor dye job. The store actually dyed them a 2nd and 3rd time and still, terrible. Davids Bridal NEVER excepts returns, only exchanges. In this case, they also agreed that the shoes looked terrible, they gave me a full refund. They were really nice about it, but that did not influence me to give the shoes another shot. IDK, maybe it was a fluke. I’m not wasting time with trying a second pair from them. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I haven’t personally had a bad experience with them but a friend of mine did. Her bridesmaids wore DB dyeable shoes in the wine color. The day of their wedding it was raining. Everything was moved inside but just from walking from the car into the hotel, each of the bridesmaids shoes started running. They were wearing tea length dresses too so its not like their feet would be covered. It was a mess! Their feet were red and it did not make for very cute Bridal Party photos!
ETA: I also heard that it took a few days and some serious scrubbing to get the dye off of their feet.

I ordered dyed shoes off the internet and received them without a problem. There was a very, very small spot that had white to it (they were aqua blue). But, nothing noticeable and overall very happy with the product. However, they did warn me that if they are near something wet, they do have a tendency to run. So, please keep that in mind.
I’ve heard good and horror stories … but, I love the idea so much, its always worth the shot. IMO

I really don’t recommend that you get dyeables. They are hit and miss at best, and they will run, if they get moist and/or wet. Remember, feet to sweat, so your girls could end up with stained feet. I would either keep looking for the color you are trying to match or rethink the color shoes you want your girls to wear. Your girls will be much happier in a shoe that doesn’t stain their feet.

I wore dyable shoes from DB as a Bridesmaid or Best Man. The ground was wet, but I didn’t have a problem. On the other hand, the color didn’t match perfectly (they were tangerine). Half of the BM’s wore watermelon and didn’t have problems.
Edit: I should add… They were really uncomfortable!

i think that with DB it’s the luck of the draw as to the service you get. My wedding shoes where from DB dyed perfectly and while thank God it did not rain on my day. It did the day before and we took pics in a park and i had no probs. I hear soo many bad things about DB and i’m sooooo greatful that the one near me is one of the good ones.

Thank you all! The shoes are for me and my dress will cover them and touch them so I am not going to risk it… my Fiance had an idea for me to wear green shoes which will match his tie and the girls flowers so that might work too 🙂

@cc226: If the shoes are for you – I wouldn’t worry about the color being the perfectly matching shade to the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Just get the ones you want and love!

@Mrs.KMM: Thank you! I just want them to seem to fit in someway 🙂
