Red Shoes

I haven't even started look for wedding heels yet, but I was thinking that I wanted to do red heels. I thought that would be something different and cute because it's my wedding color. My mother hates the idea, but my MOH loves it. What do you girls think? Should I just stick with the traditional white? Thanks!

    Go with red! Mine are purple and black! I say, get shoes that you'll be able to wear again.

    Go for it! I'm doing purple shoes ... when I told my mom, she looked at me as if I just came out of the loony bin and then seriously thought I was kidding... but I LOVE the pics where the colored shoes are peeking out from under the white dress (and other variations of this picture)

    Go for it! Mine are pink and sparkly- they scream "ME" so I couldn't help myself! My photographer always takes pics of the girl's shoes. I've convinced my FI to wear pink socks (it took A LOT of convincing...) so we can take pics of both of our pink attire :)

    I am a MOB and I think I know where your mom is coming from. When we got married- it was all about the white shoes to match the dress. I think if you explain to her that colored shoes are the "in" thing now, she might understand. Just like everything that is different- the cake designs, the dresses, etc. It was quite interesting seeing how things have changed in the 25 years since I got married.

    I love the idea of the colored shoe. My wedding colors are Black, White, & Bling (silver I guess really lol) and I found a gorgeous pair of Steve Madden shoes loaded with sparkle. I'd only wear them for the pics in the beginning because they will probably start to really hurt, but their too gorgeous to ignore.
