(Thanks to everyone for helping in the last shoe post about dye on non-dyeables shoes; I don’t know why this has turned into such a project for me).
-Amazing shoes I bought for me (pointed toe, ivory satin with black lace) for my black and white wedding. Available in black on black for bridesmaids, except one unless she can fit into a 1/2 size smaller. (Waiting to see).
-I tried to let them find their own shoes with all the same toe (preferrably pointy to match mine) and it was a disaster.
-We found another shoe, but aren’t sure it’s formal enough; it may be too cutesy. Is it formal enough? And, will it look weird if my shoes are pointy and theirs are round? (I know my photog will get some shoe shots) Or, should we keep looking?
Please tell me your opinion on these shoes ($35 at Nine West):
With this dress (it’s not that pleated in person, more rusched, and they have lace wraps):

I’m not feeling the vibe of dressy enough – but to be honest those shoes are not my cup of tea ( I wouldn’t wear em, unless you asked me for your wedding) so I may not be the best to offer judgement.
I think the lace on them won’t look right with the smooth satin of the dress.

lol! That’s my bridesmaids dress color, and is similar to my bm’s dress style (also a jim hjelm). I’m assuming you are getting it in black? I don’t think the shoes are dressy enough and think that with a longer gown, a pointed toe or sandal works better.

I guess the fact that I had to ask should have given me the answer.
I’m not a fan either, my Maid/Matron of Honor picked them and they’re cute, but not hot. I generally don’t like a round toe unless I’m being uber casual.

They’re cute shoes, but I don’t think they stand up to the dress – they definately look more casual; less sophisticated.

actually i really like the shoes! but im thinking they mighy look better with a tee length dress instead.

I love round toes (though am not big on lace for shoes as it’s easily damaged) but agree they’d look better with a tea-length dress, I’d go for an open-toed/strappy style with that dress. A gold/bronze metallic might be nice without being matchy-matchy, and then they’d get more wear out of them too.
I have wild taste in shoes so have tried to tone it down a bit but here are some I found:
ZEBRA pumps – wedges too which makes them ultra comfy to wear all day. The brown trim is annoying but otherwise so cute!
Cute plain strappy sandals.
Cute slingbacks from Nine West, in case you were planning to buy them in-store rather than online.
And I stop now before I show you every shoe I’ve liked while I looked through that site…
