Dress is in!

Yay! My dress came in!!! I'm shocked. I ordered it Feb 7 and it is done already Smile It's exactly the same as the sample, same size and everything except incredibly wrinkled. I didn't take any new pictures when I went to try it on. Sadly, the beautiful shoes I bought are way too high Frown. I am resigned to the fact that I will probably have to get flats. It's either get flat shoes (that no one will see) or spend $150 to add length to the dress. I'll just get flat shoes.

Here are the shoes I'm thinking of getting:



They are pretty boring but I was thinking of adding shoe clips. Should I bother? We aren't doing a garter toss which I think is the only time you see the bride's shoes. Opinions?

Oh and incase anyone wants a reminder of the dress (and because I'm an AW) here's a picture:



and the back (my favorite part)

    If you want to add shoe clips, add shoe clips. I think the shoes look pretty enough on their own. No one might see them, but you'll want to like how they look anyway.

    The dress is fantastic. Two thumbs up.

    Love the dress! And if you want to add shoe clips then definitely go for it.

    I say get some sparkley or colored shoes.  If they aren't really going to show it won't be too "out there" and if someone does see them its like "suprise!"

    haha.
    but thats just my style. ;)

    I would definitely get shoe clips, or something funky per Narwhals rec. It's for YOU!

    You can always get some cute shoe pictures instead!

    :Does tap dance of excitement: that's awesome, now I'm going to be stalking my bridal shop. :)

    I say get some fun flats that you can wear again, or get some awesome vintage clip-on earrings that you could wear again later, as shoe clips.

    The dress is gorgeous. I could only wish I would be so lucky to get my dress in sooner.

    And I say get the shoe clips or dye your shoes a fun color (you could even do both). This is YOUR wedding nad its for YOU. You can always get cute pictures of your shoes along with your acessories.

    I say make the shoes fun and funky. I have 2 different pairs of purple shoes. My mom thought I was half cracked when I told her I bought purple shoes. She thought you were only supposed to wear white/ivory shoes with your wedding dress. Oh mother, get with the times....Smile

    Thanks ladies! You're right. I should get something I like. Maybe I'll look back at the purple shoe posts for Jenna. Or maybe I'll get shoe clips. We'll see! I have time. It's such a relief knowing that the dress is there at the shop waiting for alterations.

    OMG my sister would love that! She has Chucks in like every color. Red and green for Christmas, red white and blue for 4th of July, green and white for St. Patty's, green white and gold for her college graduation...you get the point. I have never been a fan but I do love the purple!

    If you go to amazon.com and just type "purple flats" into the search box, you get all kinds of results. Once you have the manufacturer and style name, you can google it to see if they carry it at zappos or somewhere else that offers free shipping.

    Love the dress!  I'm jealous yours came in so early!  And I agree that you can jazz up the shoes a bit, why not?
