Wow.  The only thing is, I know that if I had bought shoes 2 years ago, my taste has changed since then.  And styles have changed since then.  I don’t have very many shoes from two years ago that I still wear – not because they’re worn out, just because I don’t like them that much anymore.  However, if they’re pretty classic shoes, and you’re the kind of gal who wears stuff forever, there’s probably nothing wrong with it.

Honestly, I’d wait.  2 years away is pretty far.  So many things change during planning.  Like color, I was convinced white until I saw it on me and went ivory.  Also heel height.  I ordered a shortened length (I’m short stuff), came in a little long so instead of forking over the $300 to shorten it, I got a 1/2 inch higher heel.  Alot of things that didn’t occur to me until I was actually dress shopping.  If I had bought shoes on what I had envisioned prior to dress shopping, they’d be kicked to the curb.

Pick them up if thiey don’t break the budget – worse comes to worse you could ebay them or sell them here, or maybe even find another use for them.

To me, with shoes it’s The More the Merrier!

Better to  have them and decide you don’t want to wear them after all then to look back and tregerat not buying them

i’d say it depends on how much the shoes are…. if they’re reasonable, sure, buy them now. but i’d hate to spend a lot of money on a shoe, thinking it was perfect, and then not like it or have it not match my dress, ya know?

If they are extremely "you", you are willing to dress shop around your shoes, and if you end up not wearing them for the wedding you will wear them for something else, buy them. Personally would wait bc as mentioned above, your tastes & styles will change. my tastes have changed in just the last week (of course i am currently on the hunt for the perfect pair of wedding shoes).

I think Sweeney2Be said it perfectly!  You can never have too many shoes or bags.

I bought my shoes before my dress, and then ended up buying different shoes after (also because of a height issue).  But neither shoe was too expensive.  I say if you can afford it, go ahead!
