My shoe budget was zero because I had the perfect shoes already. Then I found another pair of shoes and fell in love with those so I bought them, but they were only $30!

I definitely did not think about putting a budget on the shoes.  My thought was that I would keep searching and just buy what I liked.  I ended up splurging, but since my family is paying for the wedding, I did not mind putting out the money for my own shoes.  And considering I am in love with them, I know I’ll get good use out of them after the wedding.

Hi my name is…and I’m a shoe-a-holic. I wanted the pink petal sandals by Christian Louboutin which are way out of my budget, but settled on a simple satin blush pink peep toe with pretty shoe clips for less than $50.

And I think I’ll probably by a second pair to go with my reception dress. I always find a reason to buy shoes

hehe jaydee, you’re cute…

i’m just wearing flip flops for my wedding. I bought a pair for $18.00, but then i wore them (i know, bad girl!) and got them dirty, so I bought another pair – which I actually like better – for $12.00!!

HAHA…I think I’m addicted, seriously. I was willing (and still considering) spending more on the shoes than I did for my dress.

I really wanted to splurge on some Manolos or CLs but ended up finding a pair of blue Nina Elkes on clearance at Dillards for 20 bucks.  And everyone (okay, the women) loved my shoes.

I had a $200 budget (to be used up only if I really LOVED a pair of shoes; that would come out of other accessories!), but then I discovered designer shoes at BlueFly and fell in love with Pradas and CLs. Then I thought, "well, $500 is okay if I don’t buy any other clothes for myself for a year," but we all know how likely that is.

I’m now trying to force myself to only look at shoes under $100. :-/ Such a let down!

I just bought the coveted nude patent CLs in the 85mm, which for a very long time will be the nicest shoes I own.  I still can’t believe i bought them.  I probably won’t wear them with my wedding dress, but I WILL be wearing them with everything else I have in my closet every day that I get a chance.  For my wedding dress I’m just going to get a basic gold pump that can be worn again, but put clips on it.  I think it’s hard to find quality shoes under $80 unless they’re on sale, so I’ll be hunting the sale racks or searching for shoes.com coupons.

I bought some blue ruffle heels that look a bit like LV Balmoral knock-offs at Debshops online for $15!  I am planning on purchasing summer soles to spice them up with a cute inner sole for pics/comfort!!

I didn’t have a budget at the time b/c it was my first wedding purchase! Fiance insisted I splurge and get a pair of CL’s..but I didn’t (wasn’t available in the style I wanted anymore) so I wound up finding a fabulous pair for $130CAD.

I always have a problem with finding shoes.  I’m stingy, and I will give up the perfect pair of shoes because of the price tag.  My budget will be $100, but I normally pay $20 or less for name brand shoes.

I’m wearing a tea-length wedding dress, and got it on the cheap, so I decided I would splurge on shoes (I gave myself up to $300 to work with … I know). I’m doing a white dress with black accessories, including sheos, so I wanted to splurge because I knew I’d wear black shoes over and over again, and wanted a really nice, special pair. But I had awful luck with most designer shoes because I have rather wide feet, and all the ones I LOVED were just way too narrow. I think I bought and returned about five pairs, and tries on countless pairs in the stores.

I finally found a pair of Nine West evening peep-toed pumps and they fit perfectly (Nine West always comes through for me). They were $80, so I definitely ended up saving some bucks.
