First of all, the shoes are HOT HOT HOT – I love them.  I say go for it if they make you so happy.  Will you wear them later??

You should TOTALLY buy these shoes.  I faced the same dilemma.  Although I am a shopper, I usually do not splurge on shoes at all.  But I fell in love with this one pair of Louboutins that I just had to get.  So I bought them.  I felt guilty at first, but don’t anymore.  After all, ideally, you only get married once!  This is one of the few days in your life when you are justified in splurging on things you might not normally get! πŸ™‚

Buy them!!! I totally splurged on my shoe. You are buying an expensive dress it only makes sense to pair it up with expensive shoes!

I am totally guilty of splurging on a pair of shoes myself – so i say GO FOT IT! πŸ™‚ But i also have to add – those shoes are so HOT but do not look too comfortable. Is there a way you can try them on first? There is absolutely no platform in the front, which makes for a very high arch so no matter how hot the shoe, it won’t be worth it if you can’t wear it all night! πŸ™‚

Sorry but I will be in the minority and say no. They’re really high and they don’t seem to be something you could wear a lot more on a regular basis (at least to me).

I think I’m probaly the lone exception.  In general no one will see your shoes for the most part and with that style in particular people won’t see the really cool ankle part unless you walk around with your dress raised up in your hands.   

Not that you can’t wear a special or fancy shoe but if you know there are other areas of your wedding that you need this money for then I’d make a compromise….you can buy  some really nice shoes for half the price and put the other $250 or more towards the part of your wedding that needs it most.

Those are HOT!  I tend to spend $500+ on all my shoes (work and play), so i’m biased here but I say YES do it!!  And I’m sorry but they are 50% off the original price!!  That in itself would make me buy them. 

The one thing that I do have to add is that if you have never worn 4"+ heels, you need to practice.  I live in 4 inch heels and even I have a hard time wearing some of the Jimmy Choo’s that I own that are 4 inches.  I’ve seen some girls attempt to wear really high heels and they end up walking all wobbly.

Personally, I think if you have to ask – you know you can’t afford/don’t really want them. If there are other places you want to use the money – don’t get the shoes.

You should totally have shoes that make you happy.  However, do remember that you will probably be wearing them for 5 or 6 hours, and you don’t (as you said) want to spend your whole reception sitting down.  If they are Zappos you can order them and walk around in your house in them all you want – and then send them back if they don’t seem so fabulous or practical, or if you have serious money guilt over them.  I have three pairs from Zappos right now I am trying to decide between – I swear that two will go back by the end of the month.  Maybe. (Free shipping and returns!!)
