futuremrsdeemac: I bought a pair of sparkly white toms (not ballet) to wear on plane for my Destination Wedding. I had such blisters from them and then in less than two days I was wearing my wedding shoes, which killed my feet because of the blisters already there. Maybe it was the material or something of the toms that bothered my feet or maybe all the walking…who knows, especially since i have another pair. But I STILL have scars on my feet from that day almost 5 months ago.

Ctobin: Nope..i don’t think anyone will see them. But I’m a shoe whore…so I bought two pairs of heels…one for the ceremony and one for the reception..the hard part is waiting to wear them. LOL I actually bought a 3rd pair..and then decided to wear them for all the pre-wedding events. haha

I watched my wedding DVD yesterday (loved it) and I noticed that you could see my shoes, just little bits of them as I walked, I was super happy since I loved my wedding shoes. I had a comfy pairs of shoes that I strassed with purple stones for amazing sparkle.

With a traditional full length gown, no one will see your shoes unless you show them. However, to me the shoes weren’t about other people; they were for me. Because people knew me and my addiction to shoes, they asked to see them, so I showed mine a lot. They were well worth it for me.

The only people that saw my shoes were the photographer and my husband I think.

Nope no one could see my shoes except for in my pictures where I’m walking around, sitting, or holding up my dress so it didn’t get dirty.

Nope, I had to lift my dress up to be able to see my shoes. Also, by the time I got to the reception, I had so many blisters, I couldn’t WAIT to get out of them. I was given a pair of tennis shoes and it was the BEST THING EVER.

Ctobin: the only reason i would have bought expensive shoes is for the comfort level. the only time you see them is in the actual “shoe” pictures. i bought $40 sparkly Rampage shoes for the ceremony and $50 sparkly t-strap Steve Madden sandals (flats) that i can totally wear again for the reception. my ceremony shoes were a little uncomfortable, sure, but with all the adrenaline during the ceremony i didn’t even notice. and i only had them on for a couple hours, so it didn’t even matter.

In what was possibly my least ladylike moment as a bride, on my way to my first look, I tromped through a giant field with my dress all hiked up to avoid grass stains before the ceremony. So you can bet that everyone saw my shoes then, haha.
Other than that demonstration of pure class, no, no one saw my shoes unless I made a deliberate effort to show them. Which is a damn shame because they are awesome shoes. I did pay a fair bit for them ($200) but it ended up being worthwhile just because — for strappy heels — they were extremely comfortable all night long. And thankfully they are pretty enough to wear again! Score.

I splurged on heels (Choos actually) since I need the height and I don’t have any other heels. If no one sees them that’s ok- I just needed something that would give me a boost and not kill my feet!

I’m probably the wrong person to ask, but I went barefoot for the ceremony, but you wouldn’t have been able to see my shoes anyway. I wore them for all the pictures, and you can only see them during one picture, where I lifted my dress specifically to see the shoes… and that was actually only because Darling Husband had awesome wedding shoes, so our photo wanted a picture.

I was going to get a really nice pair but then I thought why? No one will see them with my dress. If you have the money to blow why not?! I Decided to spend it elsewhere.

No one really sees them unless you purchase a short dress, but for me shoes were really important! I want the cutsy pictures the photographer takes of your shoes and jewelry.

My dress actually has a hidden mid-thigh slit which I am guessing might be seen a bit while I’m walking. It was my excuse to buy Louboutins. Here is a picture of my dress and my shoes:

LyndaButterfly: where did you get those shoes from?
