Shoes

How are you deciding on what kind of shoes to buy for your wedding?

Re: Shoes

  • I want purple shoes. We are doing a Mardi Gras Wedding and i just want them to be bright, fun and comfortable.
  • I'm a shoe person in general - as I like to buy nice, high end shoes. But, for my wedding, I went with a pair of nice, flat-ish satin open toed shoes with a jeweled front. They were over $50, but under $100 - I figure I will only wear them once and they are comfortable and attractive.

    I bought my dress at Jaehee Bridal, and they had me try them on as I was trying on dresses. As I purchased my dress, I liked the way the shoes looked as well, and bought it all at once.

    I might dye them to match the bridesmaids' dresses (Tiffany blue) or not...haven't decided yet. My dress is rather classic with lace and silk tulle, so I didn't want encrusted with jewels. I'm tall (but shorter than FI) and don't normally wear high heels.

    Go with the style of your dress, height/whether or not dress needs to be hemmed, and personality (& budget!) when choosing your shoes!

    I think I obsessed over the shoes more than the dress!!  Haha but I am big on shoes.  My shoes ended up being a Christmas/Wedding gift from my hubby and they were about 4 inches high. But he is 6'3 and I am 5'4 so I needed the boost.  They were silver and sparkly.  I loved them so much I also wore them with my rehearsal dinner dress - and barely anyone was the wiser (except those who were at the dinner).

    My biggest reco would be to have a pair of flip flops with you.  I lasted up until the reception and then had to switch.  The flops had some sparkle on them and were platform so my dress wasn't dragging around.  Best decision I made was to bring those so I could dance the night away!

    <div>Agreed!  I wore flip flops longer than I wore my actual shoes.  I LOVE shoes, but for my wedding I had a little bit of shoe drama.  I originally ordered a pair of platform high heeled purple glitter shoes.  My mom freaked out when she saw them and couldn't believe I'd wear anything other than a neutral color.  Rather than get into a massive, unneccessary argument over shoes, I wound up going with ivory glitter shoes.  Also, my husband and I are both on the short side, and when I tried the original shoes on next to him, I towered over him- it looked awful!  I wound up going with a 3.5" heel, which made it easier to walk around, stand at the ceremony, and dance our first dance before shoes came off and flips went on.</div>

  • I bought ballroom dance shoes - they are lightweight & super comfortable.  No need to change into other shoes 1/2 way through the day.  They are around $50-100, but well worth it.  You could always dye them black after the wedding & wear them when you are a guest at a wedding Laughing

    My Ovulation Chart[/url] || [url=http;//www.fertilityfriend.com]Ovulation Calendar[/url]

    Me 42, DH 34 - TTC #1 since June 2012.
    9/12 3-day testing: TSH 3.76, T4 Free 1.1, LH 6.1, FSH 7.4, Prolactin 9.0, Estradiol 56. 12/12 HSG done & my tubes are clear!! 1/22/13 3-day testing: TSH 6.2, FSH 7.7, AMH 0.86, Estradiol 54, Prolactin 10.5. Thyroid almost doubled (hmmm), started Synthroid 2/4/13 and also 15,000 of Vit D 1/wk. 2/26/13 RE says I am in great shape, but DH has MFI - extremly low count along with morphology & motility issues. RE said IUI would be a waste, that IVF with ICSI is what he thinks we should do. Insurance does not cover IVF.... :(

    </div><div>I am a ballroom dancer- I would suggest the Capezio outlet in Wayne (Route 23? 46? I know where it is, but don't know the name of the highway). They are "seconds" so they are cheaper, but you might need to see a 2nd pair if the flaw is obvious.</div><div>
    </div><div>You can also buy them online at Henry G, or DiscountDanceSupply.com</div>
