What to wear, what to wear.

So I'm wearing a short ivory dress for my August wedding and I cannot -for the life of me- decide what color/style shoes to wear.  I'm getting married pretty much in the woods so heels are out of question.  Flats are a must.  But I was leaning more toward a tennis shoe style as opposed to a ballet flat or fancy looking shoe since I'm more of a tomboy (always have been).  I'm thinking either blue, red, black, or ivory and maybe toms, vans, or converse.  What are your opinions?

my dress:

There Are definitely shoes that are still tomboy but lovely at the same time. I love this style of shoe, I have seen them in other colors, just don't remember where. <a href="http://www.overstock.com/ClothingShoes/MIAWomensRosettePeeptoeFlatEspadrille/5748141/product.htmlproductdetail" rel="nofollow">http://www.overstock.com/ClothingShoes/MIAWomensRosettePeeptoeFlatEspadrille/5748141/product.htmlproductdetail</a>

    August??  What about flat (or very low-heeled) sandals?

    It's a casual outdoor elopement ceremony.  Just me and my husband to be.  It's not meant to be formal, so sneakers would be fitting for the occasion.

    Not a huge fan of sandals.  They're uncomfortable to me and I don't really like showing off my feet. :\

    Let's see if this will help paint a picture:
    I work at a hardware store, wear jeans and a tshirt all the time, and wear tennis shoes all the time (usually my vans or nikes).
    If I do wear Vans, they have some that are called "Lo Pro", which are a little more femenine than your typical canvas Era Vans.  And if I go with Converse, they'll be low cut.  I'm not really sure about the TOMS, but they are an option at least (just not the sparkly ones).
