@MrsFitness:  I love the shoes and the dress. I think they will compliment each other well.

I think you will look beautiful!  Since you are doing minimal jewelry, I don’t think you will be too over the top at all- i think it will be the perfect amount of sparkle.

I think that dress is amazing.

The real question IMO is, could you really stand in something like that all day long? Keep in mind that between the pics, the ceremony, the dancing, and the receiving line/visiting every table, the bride doesn’t get to sit very much AT ALL. If you’re going to get these, I’d invest in the real thing. I had a few pairs of shoes that were amazing, but at the end of the day I had to compromise a lot of my style and “offbeat”-ness for something I knew I could stand up in for hours at a stretch. Either way, not many will see them.

But no, not over the top if you think they won’t hurt. Just don’t wear a statement necklace or something, and you’ll be just fine.

Its your wedding day – the one day we are allowed to be a bit more over the top!!  


If you love it – who cares?!  I’ve chosen a quite “princess” like dress (which originally wasn’t what I thought I would want) and I think to myself, I get to do this once, so yes I want a gorgeous big dress!  I think your dress is beautiful by the way!

Both together, with a strand of pearl necklace would be gorgeous!! When I saw both, I was like aw… a princess bride — definitely not over the top.

I would mirror the concern about the comfort of the shoe; maybe you may want to try find proper insoles and practice walking/standing in them for a few hours at home.

I might pick the blue shoes. Then you will have your ‘something blue’ checked off!

@MrsFitness:  That is a 5 inch heel with no platform, the only thing over the top for me would be my feet, coming over the top of my head, as I hit the ground.  It you can pull off that height I will climb up on a ladder to high five you in those awesome shoes 😉

@MrsFitness:  Omg. Please get those shoes. I adore those. I remember when they were introduced and fell in love. They, in no way, shape, or form, go with my dress or the style of my wedding but I’d wear them if I had a dress like yours.

I don’t think it’s too much. The dress is classic and beautiful and nobody is really going to be seeing your shoes constantly.

The dress is lovely!! . . . but the shoes are a bit over the top due to the extreme height of the heels. Since nobody will see them, why not opt for something that will be a little more comfortable during what will be a very long day/night. You don’t want to thinking about your aching feet during your beautiful wedding day!

If I recall correctly from my Disney days, Cinderella’s glass slippers had very low heels . . .

I would love to see a picture of you in the dress!!!

Just because it’s hard to tell, and give a honest opinion when you can’t see what your hair is like, or how you’ll have your makeup!

the dress is beautiful, and if you’re worried about the shoes making things over the top, just remember that no one sees your shoes haha.

And I’d recommend getting flats for the evening! they will KILL you if you wear them all day long. the last thing you want on your wedding day is to feel uncomfy!
