- Wedding: May 2013
I searched and searched all over to find the perfect white or sliver wedding shoe to Strass. Well, I couldn’t find one! So I took the chance on buying a shoe in the color “Latte Crystal Satin Patent”. My other issue is that I needed a short heel bc my now husband is the same height as me. So I felt I was limited in my choices. I used 3 different blue color Swarovski Flat Back Crystals: light saphire, saphire, and capri. I also used E6000 glue, Perfect Positioner style jewel tool, and 3 different size crystals: 9ss, 12ss, 16ss. I know that Swarovski Crystals are more expensive but I found a website that sells them in bulk, and it was for my wedding day so I wanted only the best. Before you start these shoes make sure you give yourself enough time to complete them because these shoes are A LOT of work! But everyone at my wedding commented on them and a few people wanted to know where they could buy them. It took me about 20-24 hours total to complete these shoes and this was the 1st time I have ever “Strassed”. Above is a picture of before and after. Hope you all loved them and feel free to ask me anything you need to know to complete the project of your own!
