Do people really notice your shoes? No. It's really more for the pictures and adding height to yourself (if you're short). I love it when brides pick shoes that are not the typical beige or white. It just gives the picture a great contrast between the dress and the shoes.
Here are some shoes that I've found over this past month...
RSVP: Roma Black. Cost @ Zappos: $89.00
These shoes are so adorable with the vintage beading at the back of the shoes. The only thing I don't like about is that it's black. If I were hosting a black/white wedding, they would be perfect, but I'm not.
Maybe a future DIY project? =)
Brand: La PlumeEthere (Etsy) Cost: $55.00
These would definitely be a DIY project if I were to go with something like this. I don't think I can handle those 4" heels. Don't want a broken leg at the wedding! =(
I've also seen these shoes at Macy's for about the same price. Macy's might be a better way to go because they give out a lot of coupons. Plus they always have sales!
There’s actually a lot of different brands that carry glitter shoes. This one is an Enzo Angiolini. My friend told me this brand is on the more comfortable and affordable side. I know Steve Madden and Jimmy Choo also carries shoes like this.
Steve Madden Cost @ Nordstroms: $89.95
I saw these beauties at Nordstroms. They were gorgeous. This is more of a traditional wedding shoe with a slight twist to it. What do you think?
Brand: Two Lips Cost @ DSW: $49.95 (If you sign up for their free membership you can get a $10 welcome credit!)
Sorry this picture is a little fuzzy. I tried looking for more pictures of this shoe, but it keeps showing me the black ones. I absolutely love everything about it...I just don't think my feet will agree. =(
Schuh Cost: 75 Euros (About $100 US?)
These are definitely more unique. I would figure these shoes may be a bit more comfortable due to the strap. I just think these are so much fun! The only drawback is that they're from the UK, so shipping might be insanely inexpensive. Other than that, they're not that expensive.
Just a few tips on having comfortable feet for the long day:
Since my wedding dress is coming in March, I have started my search for wedding shoes.
How do I find shoes that are more than 3″ high, “comfortable,” and most importantly… affordable.
I got an email from someone who just got married recently.
She recommended the Dr. Scholl’s Anti-Friction Stick. She said her and her bridesmaids used it and their feet were pain free all day!
Any other suggestions??
