Wedding Wednesday: shoes
Well, I finally bit the bullet and got my wedding day shoes! I honestly cannot believe how long it has taken for me to find the perfect pair of shoes for my wedding! As a bride, I know we sometimes get OCD but my dress has so many particular and intricate details that I needed to find a very specific shoe. When my Mom told me she thought they would be perfect that was what settled the matter. I am so happy! The shoes are the Badgley Mischka "Salsa" Pump in vanilla satin. The 3" heel is the perfect height and the vanilla color is perfect for my dress. The jewel detail goes with the wedding theme and my dress. I am excited to see how the dress looks with the shoe but know I will be happy!
I did almost get one of several Manolo Blahnik shoes - however, when compared to my dress, the silver was always too dark and the white was too white! They also are rarely less than 3.5-4" tall and then I could not wear them all night. So, Badgley Mischka's were my next bet!
How long did it take you all to find your perfect shoe?
Previous entries about my wedding shoe hunt here (Nov 2010!) and here (Aug 2010!). Also, if you are looking for these shoes in a different size, Bloomingdales has them. I ordered them from Endless as they had my size in stock (ONE pair of them was left! Yikes!) and because Endless is on Ebates - so I got them for almost $20 off! If you're a bride-to-be and online shopper like me, going with Ebates can save you money way faster than I ever thought - it adds up quickly.
