I pretty much hate all the wedding shoes I’ve looked at, and since I need a pair by August 1st, that means I have to just suck it up and pick some. I’ve narrowed it down to the following:
Also open to other suggestions. Criteria are:
-Heel less than 3 inches (7.5 cm), but NOT flats
-Skinny heels, not chunky or wedge
-Either completely open or completely closed toe (no peep-toes)
-Ivory, not white
-Must be within Australia, as I don’t have time to wait on international shipping

I know the ivory maybe makes it difficult, but you don’t need to stick to bridal shoes specifically. There are sooooooo many gorgeous other options.

I have been looking at other shoes besides bridal shoes, but I just can’t find anything I like. I would have considered coral shoes, but I haven’t been able to find very many and none of them meet the heel height criteria. Options 3 and 4 are dyeable, though…

I think it depends on what your dress looks like, but just looking at the shoes on their own, I think option 4 is the nicest.

My dress is this:
Popular opinion forced my hand and I ordered Option #4 which arrived today. They look all right, but I am considering having them dyed coral. I don’t know if that would look too weird with the dress or not. I suppose it might give them more wearability after the wedding…

Agree with pp’s. I don’t understand why you’re resigning yourself to “wedding” shoes. My shoes are not traditional wedding shoes! What kind of shoes do you like? You can wear anything you want. If you prefer flats, there are a million beautiful flats out there. And they don’t have to be white or ivory. I would say that MOST people on this site are wearing colored shoes!

@HisNightOwl2014: Because I have to wear something on my feet and I have to choose something now in order to give the seamstress enough time for the alterations. I wanted to order from America, but I didn’t have time to wait on the shipping. It would take about two weeks to get to me, minimum.
@Tangled: I wanted something elegant and comfortable that would match the dress. Unfortunately, it’s the middle of winter here and not only are wedding shoes not really in season, but colourful shoes and open toed shoes are not in season either. They are just starting to get spring shoes into the stores, but it is still mostly just a lot of dark coloured boots and such at the moment. But I did ask the store that I bought the #4 shoes from to send two additional swatches, as I’m now leaning towards having them dyed. I don’t know why I suddenly decided I might want to have them dyed when I’ve always been one of those people that dislikes coloured wedding shoes on the whole. But maybe it could look nice.
