    I’d get them dyed to match instead of strassing them.  Your lace dress is very elegant, and I think rhinestoned shoes would detract from that.

    I say don’t strass anything, and either dye them or try to forget about it- barely anyone will even see your shoes

    I don’t think rhinestoned shoes would go with your dress. I have no idea how you would go about dyeing shoes so I would leave them as is.

    I think your dress is classic and elegant and strassing would compete with it. If I were to dye I would either go very light blush, lavender, or tiffany blue, or go bold with red. But I think they are beautiful the way they are as well.

    I don’t get the strassing trend. I wouldn’t recommend it.

    I say leave them as is. I tend to like plain shoes and am not crazy about the whole strassing thing. And as PP have said, you don’t want you shoes to compete with your gorgeous dress!!

    I say no strass. I had this same dilemma. I purchased expensive strassed shoes thinking I would get a simple dress and the shoes would be the center of attention. Then I found THE dress and the shoes went back! I still need to find a shoe dressy enough for my dress but I don’t want my shoes to outshine my gorgeous dress! Your dress is gorgeous so why have them compete against something so eye-catching?
