I was the recipient of these ridiculous shoes thanks to an aunt who does estate sales. I love the fact that some little old lady owned these.(And yes, she is still alive–I’m not wearing a dead woman’s shoes. And no, I can’t beleive I just had to type that.) They’ve been sitting in my closet, unable to make themselves useful in the middle of the winter.
Funny enough though, after I decided on my colors (turqoise and corals) for my quirky, fancy-DIY-meets-1920’s-meets-whatever wedding, I started kicking (ha!) around the idea of wearing these “ridiculous” but perfectly-hued shoes down the aisle with my ruffle-y dress. They’re so unique and sparkly and I suddenly couldn’t think of a more fitting place to wear them–or how I would ever find another pair that have that same “zing” with the $2 price tag.
What do you bees think? Ridiculous, yes, but fun? Quirky? Or can you tell they came out of an old lady’s closet?
If I DID wear them, I’d probably put a new insole in them and maybe paint the bottom of them to make them more photo-worthy…gold insole, glitter/pink/gold soles. If I didn’t wear them, I’m only out $2 and get to go shoe shopping. Essentially, it’s win-win…

I like them! They are definitely unique and have a great story behind them. And if they match your wedding colours perfectly, why not? You can always get a second pair to rock at the reception if you wanted something more contemporary.

Definately wear them. They do look like theyre vintage, but that a plus since it goes with your theme.

My only concern is comfort- they don’t have a back. Would they just feel like slippers? I can’t see dancing in those…
I like the quirkiness of them, and they seem to fit your theme. No one will really see the shoe under your dress. I guess you’ll have pictures of them…
To sum, I think if they’re comfortable, go for it!

I will be brave and ‘fess up to not loving them.
I think they are impractical with a wedding dress due to having no backs, and it would be super easy to trip given that they are mules.
If you are wearing tea length then maybe. But IMO they are not very attractive.
I feel bad saying this, but it is evident from your poll at my time of writing that other respondents agree.

@MrsOliveBird: I totally get what you’re saying and appreciate you giving your opinion! I wanted people to write if they hated them, but I remembered that no one seems to have any snark when it comes to wedding websites. I added the poll later, hoping to lure a few bees to say how they felt. And yes, to me, they’re simultaneously awesome vintage heaven and ew. It’s a fine line. (But then, I also think these are ew, too, so my opinion can’t really be main stream.)
And I agree with the other comment; I was wondering about them falling off, or if I should/could get a strap attached. But I’ll be outdoors, with a long aisle of pine needles to traverse…maybe it’s time to search for some sassy mary janes instead…

They are absolutely gorgeous! It would be so easy to add a sling back to make them a bit more practical for your bush walk through the pines 🙂 Just think of the tales you can tell for years to come about your special shoes. They are just divine!
