I personally think yeah, they are too ivory. But that’s a personal opinion – if you like them, go for it! I know that my dress is long enough that people are only going to see my shoes during the garter toss, and if I take them off (which I will!)

They look gold to me, not ivory :D… I would have just assumed you’d decided to wear gold shoes!  but if you wanted a closer match, that’s not the shoe to do it with. GL!

I don’t think anyone will notice the shoes. They are close enough!

From the picture, they look more gold than yellow.  I don’t think anyone will even notice your shoes unless you hike up your dress and show them :), but will you be paranoid about it?

They look like a creamy beigey gold. If that’s one of your wedding colors, go for it. If not, maybe just attempt dying?

I definitely don’t think so.  My gown was a soft white/ivory, and my ceremony shoes were champagne, so there was a similar color contrast to what you pictured above!

I would dye it a richer champagne.  They are pretty!

It looks intentional rather than unmatched.  Like you wanted a pop of gold/champagne peeking out.  Very cute.

Oh my gosh, it’s fine, hun 🙂 I definitely think this is a case of being overly critical of the situation (which, believe me, I’ve been guilty of this at some point, too). As long as the shoes are in the same realm, which they are, they’ll be fine. No one will notice, and if they DO see your shoes, I’ll guarantee their first thought will be, “Wow, cute shoes,” not “Oh my gosh, the ivory is slightly off!”

They’re lovely, as you said, and I see nothing wrong with the color.

I wore the exact same shade of shoes and dress…I loved it!  I think it looks fine(and seriously, three people will look at your feet)–go with them!

If you love the shoes still, you should wear them!  No one will notice cause I’m sure your dress will cover it!  Those shoes are cute and will be great “details” pictures from the photographer!
