Want your ladies opinion. I have been fretting about finding the right footwear for the reception.
Recap for those that don't know I am a 2 dress bride. For the ceremony, dinner, toasts, original dances (first dance, etc) I am wearing my mother's dress (majorly altered) and these GORGEOUS bright red heels that I found. After that for the dancing/partying I have a tea length lace overlay dress with a red satin sash. (see bio for pics of all of the above).
I have been looking for some sort of black footwear (maybe with red accents) that would be comfortable, stay on my feet while dancing and be fun at the same time. I have tried sandals, ballet flats, you name it and been getting REALLY frustrated. Today I was on Ravelry (another site I'm ADDICTED to, NWR) and found some patterns that caught my attention. What if I made my reception footwear? Wool footwear is really comfortable, and some fabric paint can quickly give it a non slip sole...
Here are some of the patterns I was looking at. Thoughts?
