I have a bit of a dilema and I need the Hive’s advice. Naturally with out shoes I am 2 inches taller than my fiance. I’m 5’8″, he is 5’6″. He hates it, I hate it because I no longer wear heels. Boy do I miss my heels! Originally I was going to do flats, but the more I thought about it I said screw it, I want heels. So I have already looked into getting him lifts for his shoes, I can him 5inch lifts which leaves me 3 inches to play with.
I purchased one pair of shoes online from a friend. They were 3inch RSVP Royal Blue heels. Gorgeous shoes with a 3inch heel. I tried them on with my dress and 3inch is the perfect size to work with the hem of my dress. Anything taller won’t work. Anything less will be ok.
The shoes I have though are really not suited for my feet, they just don’t fit right and I know I will be fussing with them all night long, so I need new shoes. I have fallen in love with two different shoes however of course with my luck the heel is too tall. Why is it that the designers can’t come up with these cute styles in a shorter heel??? There are tall brides who don’t want to be close to 6ft on their wedding day!!
Budget is also a concern. I can’t afford $200 shoes, just can’t do it. I also need them to be comfortable. I have a bunion on the right foot and the left foot was operated on a few years ago. The dr’s broke that foot and the bone never healed properly – so comfort is a must!
My dress is a Diamond White Maggie Sottero Jenna here is a pic for reference:
I have been searching the well known discount sites and these are the choices I have come up with:
I absolutely LOVE the Electra and Milika however height is too tall 🙁
ForbesNow I can get this one in Ivory, Navy, Grape or Apple Green.
Ok sorry about the huge list of shoes – If anyone has any experience with wearing these please let me know how they worked out and how comfy or not they were. Would love to see pictures of you wearing them so I can get a better idea of how they look on.
