Awww awesome story! I’m glad you got to have your “bridal moment” even if it was with your shoes! I love my dress too, but I’m not one to cry easily.  I didn’t let that sway me either way.  I’ll let you know if I tear up with the shoes or the purse though =)

shoes are way more important to me than the dress.  In fact, i’m willing to dish out a very large sum of money for my shoes if it comes to it…I may or may not have my heart set on some blue Louboutin’s…

Congrast! They sound awesome. Post a pic 🙂 When I found my shoes I was superly more excited then when I found my dress too. Funny how those things work.

I have always had a thing about shoes; at 4/5, I was dressing up in my mum’s heels, at 10 I bought my first pair of high heels, and at 15, I bought my first pair of Jimmy Choos (!).

When I started to seriously think about getting married, I thought about the shoes, not the dress. I saw a pair of designer heels about 4 years ago, and said they would be my wedding shoes, no matter what.

My first wedding purchase were those shoes lol: a pair of beautiful Ginas. I also bought a pair of Jimmy Choos at the same time. The dress came after.

I didn’t cry over any of my purchases; that isn’t me. However, had I not been able to get those Ginas, I’d have been distraught; whereas I’m sure I’d have found a dress I loved easily. I love both my dress and shoes; but my shoes excite me more, as shoes always have. Plus, I can wear the shoes again and again after, for many years to come; not so for the dress!

Coool!!!  I hope that happens for me!  I love my dress, and it was the one for sure, but it wasn’t like I then envisioned myself as a bride or anything.  I was hoping maybe my hair trial or something would help.  Glad to hear that special moment doesn’t always have to come from the dress.  Thanks for sharing!

As much as I love fashion, I love shoes even more. My dress is for me, but it’s also for my FH and for everyone else to ogle. My shoes…they’re all for me and I know that’s what will give me my ~moment~


And I second the request for photos! 🙂
