I found, and fell in love with my dream shoe in white online awhile back (yay). When I finally found a store in the US that carried them (they’re by a Spanish designer) the fit was perfect, but since the store didn’t have the white I went ahead and bought them in navy. I’ve shown the shoes to a few people now and they’ve all mentioned that the shoe looks much more black then navy. I was given the right color but it is definitely a very dark shade and I’m beginning to worry that the blackish color makes them less "bridal" looking and more like a random selection. I recently found the shoe online in white and I’m now wondering if I should buy and wear that one instead (I’ve already cut the heels down on the others but I love them enough that I’m sure they’d be put to good use ;-).

Here’s a picture of my dress in case it affects you decision…

I think it’s really a matter of your own preference…if you don’t mind being a bride that wears a pop of color on her shoe, then the navy one (even if it is dark) is fine. If you want to be more traditional, then the white is a safe bet. It’s really up to you and which one that YOU like better for the overall look that you want.

I like the navy choice best! People probably won’t be able to see your shoes, anyway, so I wouldn’t worry about buying another pair of shoes. Maybe your photographer could brighten the shoes in pictures?

I like the navy too. And I know for me anyways, I’d definitely wear the navy shoes again, but I never wear white shoes.

i like the navy or black but mainly because you’d be able to wear them again and i think it’s sexy…

I’m usually one that goes for colored shoes, but I think I like these shoes better in white… and I’m not usually a huge fan of white bridal shoes. The rhinestone embellishment just looks so pretty on the white.
They’re great shoes, though, and will be pretty with your dress whichever color you choose!

I personally like the white better with your dress; I think that the shoes are suuuuper cute in the navy/black, but I guess I just don’t see them with the dress quite as much. Like you said, you would wear the navy/black regardless of they are with your dress….so your money isn’t going to waste on that pair…I do love a pop of color on the shoes (mine are yellow), but for some reason I just don’t love a really dark shoe with a white dress. Totally my personal opinion though!

Navy / Black can look bridal too. I am wearing Black shoes for my big day and they work wonderfully!
That being said, I voted for the white shoes. Not because they are more “bridal” but because I think they would work best with your dress.

I actually think the navy shoes might look cool, as a fun pop of color against your dress. Your dress (which is gorgeous) isn’t too embellished, so I think it would be kind of flattering wiith a colored shoe.
