    I haven’t found my dream shoe yet, but I would probabLY be willing to go up to $600-$800. Tell me about your shoe, who makes it, how much? I love these!!

    That’s an awesome shoe, but you had better not be stepping in any grass, dirt, or sand with a heel that embellished!

    Those are super gorgeous!! WOW! But, I agree with @mrsSonthebeach: about the vulnerabilities of those beautiful heels.

    I paid more than $175. Each. Plus shipping. For two different pair (a closed-toe, sling back with big Swarovski crystals on them for the ceremony, and a pair of stunning sandals that had Swarovski crystals all across the straps for the reception.)

    This was in addition to the first pair (pretty wedge sandals) that I ordered that I decided to return but couldn’t. My total for shoes ended up being somewhere close to $500. I sometimes wish I had spent more of that money on my dress (which was over $2,000 with alterations), which I have to see in EVERY wedding pic in which I appear, and less on shoes, which virtually no one but I and my bridesmaids and photographer ever saw, lol.

    Still, those shoes in your pic are amazing!

    ETA: I am SO NOT a DIY person, but, you know what? I really thing you could take a pair of beautiful-but-plain, satin-peep-toe pumps and buy some gorgeous silk flowers and Swarovski crystal jewelry and some thin but sturdy wire and MAKE a version of those shoes that you would totally love!!!

    They are beautiful, but wow – those are expensive.  I think that could be a really easy DIY project though.

    Haven’t picked anything out yet but I’d like to keep it at $200 or under. BUT if I found a great shoe that work work for occassions outside of the wedding I’d totally pay upwards of $600 (ex: an incredible pair of nude pumps I could wear anywhere). Over the years I’ve found that money does buy the quality I need for my feet and the more I’ve spend on each pair of pumps the better my feet feel. And I’m not talking about, wear them for 5 hours and my feet don’t blister, but they’re “I just wore heels all evening” sore. I mean, wear them for 8 hours, feet don’t blister, and at the end of the day my feet feel as if I had been wearing my flats all day. Literally, same level of comfort in 3+ inch heels as I have in flats.
