So I’ve already found my reception shoes (cherry red leather ballet flats – they haven’t arrived yet but I’m DYING to have them) but I’m still looking for ivory flats.
Why is it so fricking hard to just find a pair of ivory flats? I’m having a really difficult time. I don’t want to spend too much on them because I probably won’t wear them again.
I bought a pair from dessy, and the fit is really, really bad. Too small in the toes, too big in the heel…just blech all over. So I have to return them. Dessy doesn’t refund the shipping costs, so that sucks. Out some money plus still no shoes.
My left big toe has had some serious trauma over the last couple of years, so I need to have something with some ROOM – all I keep seeing are these pinch-toe flats with no room whatsoever. Ughhhhh I’m getting really annoyed.
I found two pairs on etsy that are really nice, but they’re more than I’m hoping to spend, and again it’s iffy because of the toe thing.

I’m staying away from open-toe shoes because my big toe has a recurring issue following being badly broken a couple of years ago. There is about a 90% chance my nail will be discoloured and/or in the process of falling off (ick, I know, TMI) so I’ll have to bandage it up.
Plus with the wedding being in Oct (in Canada!) there’s always a chance it could be cold, so closed-toe seems like the way to go.
I found a couple of more listings on etsy – they are leather, which I think might be a better option that whatever fabric shoes are usually made of. I feel like maybe they’ll have more give? The one pair of ballet flats I currently own that actually do fit really well are leather, and maybe that’s why they fit. I don’t know.
I’m amazed how much more things cost with the word “bridal” in front of them. Ballet flats are cheap! Bridal flats will cost you an arm and a leg. And a kidney! And your first born!
