This is my first post so be gentle with me! 🙂
I’m trying to decide if I should go for blue bridal shoes…I have fallen in love with the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue heels that Carrie wore in Sex and the City…they’re soooo pretty! Now, they are pricey, but I figure if I can’t treat myself on my wedding day to some fancy pants shoes, then when can I?!
The problem is that my mum and sister are totally against the blue shoes…they say it will distract from my dress and also that it’s not traditional.
The dress I’m intending getting is Maggie Sottero Nora (not sure how I put photo’s up here), and if you google “Manolo Blahnik Something Blue” you’ll get a pic of the shoes.
What do you all think? Will it look good or not??
Let me know what you think!

Do it! The only time people will see your shoes is during pics, and it can totally be your something blue. I say go for it.

Call me biased, but I was a purple-shoe bride and I think that colored shoes are the way to go, if nothing else, for pics like these:

Do it girl do it! It’s your wedding not your mom or sisters 😉 I’m doing blue shoes as are a lot of girls in the hive! You really don’t even see your shoes unless you make it happen. I’m SURE they won’t take away from the dress at all! Go for the blue! 🙂

@ScotsMrsH2b – Yay! If you need help finding blue shoes that cost less than the “something blue” shoes, let me know! I actually posted a thread about “look-alikes” for those shoes a while back: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/looking-for-carries-something-blue-shoes
