Anyone else being met with the term “hussy” when choosing to wear colored shoes? My mother apparently thinks that the shoes NO. ONE. WILL. SEE. are making me look like a street walker. Thoughts and opinions on how to deal with this? Any great arguments or websites I can show her to prove that other women do this? I mean seriously look at these shoes…

No advice but I seriously heart those shoes 🙂
..And I’m not sure what “hussy” would be classy enough to wear a pair of Stuart Weitzmans.

Shoes don’t make a girl slutty, a girl makes shoes slutty.
Otherwise, they are just hot. :p

No! Think Sassy instead! There are lots of great colored shoe photos in the gallery section.

Those shoes are awesome.
Look at site like Style Me Pretty and show your Mom how many brides are doing this.

Well I haven’t actually been called THAT, but I seem to be the only one of my friends who has EVER heard of wearing shoes that aren’t white. It blows my mind, really. LOL. I do google image searches for “colored wedding shoes” and tons of pics come up that I share with them…..but somehow they still don’t get it. Maybe it’s a top-secret only brides know about it thing. LOL. I’m just doing it anyway, and they can just continue to think I’m crazy!

Those are fantastic shoes. My mom didn’t think colored shoes would make me look like a hussy, but she didn’t understand why I wanted to wear them. Both she and my sister were kind of shocked/horrified when I brought up the idea, so I eventually just went with ivory shoes, because it was easier than fighting them on it.

Haha! When I saw the subject of your post, I was wondering if you were talking to my Grandma! Hussy is such an old-fashioned term.
I totally think a punch of color peeking out from under your dress will look great.
Fun and unique is red shoes peeking out. Hussy is red thong peeking out!

Those shoes are awesome! I am biased, though – I freaking love red shoes! Poo on the Hussy thing …
My mom thinks it’s silly to wear colored shoes – some things you just have to say “It’s my wedding, get over it.”

I love red. Love shoes. Love those red shoes. Tell your mom it is ok. You’ll try really hard not to be a hussy on your wedding day

@honeybun: that’s really funny because even before I came into the world of weddingbee and weddingblogs I never even considered white shoes for my wedding. White satin shoes just aren’t my thing. I prefore the 5 inch, insanely bright and colorful patent leather shoe 🙂

Yeah I don’t understand how the color of your shoe can make you slutty. Those shoes are hot and you should definitely wear them if you want to. Google colored wedding shoes and show your mom the million and one pictures that come up. And if she still doesn’t by into it, who cares. She’s not the one wearing them. You’re a big girl, you can decide what to wear.

I LOVE colored shoes with wedding dresses! You should just do what you want (I feel like I say this ALL the time).

@rosychicklet I think I’m going to use that as my defense. I also fowarded her a link to a google search of “colored wedding shoes. Great ideas all! I don’t care if she likes them or not I’m wearing those awesome red shoes regardless but I wanted her to at least kind of open her mind to the idea :o)
