I have a dilema….
My wedding is June 15th… yup 6 weeks.
Our theme is vintage/rustic, but not in a very overt way. We are mostly just letting that come through in subtle ways. Burlap and lace table cloths, the ceremony and recpetion are being held in a cute church that was built in the early 1800’s. (Hand carved wood pews, and stained glass windows… the hall has a beautiful wood arched ceiling. I love it.)
I had my dress all picked out and everything back in December. It’s simple, with a touch of rustic.
The guys are wearing grey suit pants, suspenders, white dress shirts, and mix-matched dress shoes all brown leather.
My girls are wearing nude pumps and pearls with these:
I have no idea what to wear on my feet!!! I went shoe shopping today… and everything is so glitzy… i dunno. The whole feel of the wedding is soft and sweet and simple. I don’t want anything too over the top. But I wouldn’t mind having shoes that make a bit of a statement (a flower or bow or something?? ). I can be an indecisive person when I don’t have much experience… and I’ve never picked out wedding shoes before. 😉
Anyone got any ideas? Also, has anyone purchased shoes online

That’s such a pretty dress. Not sure what color shoes your looking for but how about something like this?? I purchase a lot of my shoes on-line cuz there’s just so much more of a selection and I ALWAYS find sooo many cute ones. 🙂

@cantstopfalling: “Also, has anyone purchased shoes online” Almost all of my shoe purchases have been online 🙂
I would recommend you check out Anthropologie, BHLDN, Modcloth, Shopruche, etc. (and other various vintage-inspired stores). You’re much less likely to find glitz, but they’ll still be cute embellished shoes. Also, J Crew has lovely heels.

@cantstopfalling: THAT’S MY DRESS!!! We’re dress twins! That is so rare here for me lol
I am wearing cowboy boots 🙂 No heels to sink into the mud with!
EDIT – those mint vintage shoes from BHDLN were my go-to shoe if we decided to switch to an indoor wedding. 🙂

Can’t tell if your dress is white or ivory. If ivory, these are a possibility:
These would work in any color:
These would be nice with your dress, but they’re more ‘vintage’ than ‘rustic’:
These are just too cute for your dress, IMO:
These are also on the short side and could be good with your dress:

I suggest Kleenex boxes. White ones.

Agreed with Modcloth.com and ShopRuche!
I’m also going for a simple vintage theme, with lace. If you are opting for comfort and are willing to splurge a bit, check out Fluevog.com; I’ve bought most of my shoes online from Fluevog. They would actually send you an email and/or call you to get your feet measurements and determine the best size for you.
Or.. you could check out an Etsy seller: Walking On Air.

@MlleFabuleux: I was thinking of a crazy Mr. Burns from the Casino episode.

@Sweetescape1976: I love the lace shoes!
@MlleFabuleux: I will definitely look there! …I like those stores, I am just useless when it comes to shoes… I don’t know who sells them 😛 lol
@suburbian: Yay! Dress twins 😀 I literally walked in, tried on that dress and walked out with it. They had just put in on the floor, no one else had ever worn it! And it fit me perfectly… I didn’t need any alterations! It was fate :’)
We were originally thinking outdoor, and I was totally loving the idea of cowboy boots. But where I live, the weather is hit or miss, so we decided indoors is the way to go. 😛
@jmarvellous: The dress is “soft white” so it’s more white than ivory. Those are cute!
@Duncan: yes. perfection 😉
@MlleFabuleux: …totally watching the Office right now. 😛
@Cynderbug: I love those shoes! …makes me wonder if I could take some satin pumps and add some crocheted lace… hmmm….
I definitely have some homework to do! lol Thanks guys!

Not sure how rustic you’re looking to go, but I’ll be wearing these boots under my dress 🙂
