I wore navy blue Toms with little white flowers on them for my wedding day (they were my something blue). I exclusively wear Toms, even to work. It’s like they were designed with my specific feet in mind. My wedding day was to be no different!

I also used to work with a lady who wore custom gold and white converse sneakers on her wedding day (an awesome choice too)!

Go for it!  I like them much better than the converse trend.  I wore flats.

Do it!

I’m wearing custom Chuck Taylors, as they have always been my favorite shoe. I’ll wear some sort of dressy shoe for the cermony, and will change into the chucks for the reception. 

ETA: I also had a friend that wore the Rose Gold Kate Spade shoes. It looked great. All of her BMS also wore shoes wtih rose gold glitter. They all made their own.

I support the idea of wearing whatever the heck you want and you will be most comfortable in! Converse are a good shout!

Don’t torture yourself with heels if you have old injuries.If the sparkle sneakers are your style, then go for it! A pair of cute flats would also look charming.  You do you boo.

Hey, it worked for the girl in Father of the Bride!  IDK, I know a lot of people don’t like the sneakers with dress look, but I also did a lot of years of ballet and track, so my philosophy is to just wear whatever shoes aren’t going to make you feel miserable all day.  You’re wearing a long dress anyway, so people are only going to see your feet if you show them off, and I think those shoes are cute.  Heels would get super annoying (and ruined) on the grass anyway, so I think that or ballet flats would definitely be a solid option.

I love it! If I had a long dress I would be going this too! I think they’re really cute and you should be comfortable on your wedding day. If you want to hide them a little more I might avoid the blue. But if you’re ok with them being a feature and maybe being seen under the dress then 100% do it!!

My Fiance and all the groomsmen will be wearing convers so why can’t the women!

Out of the three weddings I’ve been to I wouldn’t be able to recall what shoes any bride wore at gun point bc I never saw them! Wear whatever you’re most comfortable with. The only reason I’m wearing 4 inch heels is bc I’m 5’2, Fiance is 6 ft and I refuse to be called *Señor Shortness* on my wedding day. ๐Ÿ˜… Good health and comfort trumps torture shoes every time. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I love the idea of sneakers withe your dress – and no one will seem the anyone. Darling Husband and I both chose comfort – he wore chucks and I went barefoot.

Not crazy. I wasted money on Betsey Johnson sandals that nobody could see.

I’m wearing these toms for my wedding. I am not about that heel life (I’m tall enough as it is). They also have similar designs in white.

Not a huge fan of sneakers, but I know I won’t be wearing heels! I am a flats girl all the way. That being said, I think the ones you posted are pretty cute! If your dress covers them most of the night, who cares? Your comfort is more important than everyone else’s opinion!
