Wedding Wednesday: Shoes

I'm saving a lot on my dress and other parts of the wedding, so I'm thinking about splurging a bit on shoes. I want to make sure that the pair I pick will really stand out if I'm spending gobs of money. Until my cheap nature kicks in again, let's drool over some shoe options:

1. Zanotti Satin Pumps - Very bridal and currently half off.
2. Prada Bow Pump - Love the little bow and also on big discount.
3. Louboutin Biba Pumps - Not in the right color for my dress, but very appealing. Bluefly has some really good deals. Apparently, you can order Louboutin's with blue soles instead of red for your wedding.
4. Loeffler Randall Pumps - I love the saucy vintage cut of these pumps. This would be my favorite if they weren't so pink.
5. Kate Spade Monarch - Oohh, ankle strap would be nice. Or a bow on the heel?
6. Fendi Sandals - Gold would be easy to wear again. I like the vintage feel of this design too. I so wish they had them in my size.
7. Zanotti Suede Pumps - So perfect for a modern urban loft wedding in the fall or winter.
8. J.Crew Twyla Heels - Cute and not outrageously expensive. Or I could do yellow to match the theme?

Have you checked out the Neiman Marcus sale section? They have some awesome options right now in bridal and bright colors: http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/catalog/templates/P9.jhtml?itemId=cat17520738&parentId=cat8450745&masterId=cat11000734&cmCat=&page=1&view=all&filter1Type=&filter1Value=&filter2Type=&filter2Value=&filterOverride=&sort=&icid=viewall

I like the idea of bright shoes, because I think you can more easily wear them again, although something like the Prada shoes you showed would wear well in the future also.

think comfort! they look gorgeous, but can you stand all day in them? #4 is my fav, but they look just like a pair of smooth ballroom shoes i'm lusting after currently. :)

I second zeghsy - definitely go for comfort! Can you really stand/dance in 4" heels all day?! Hats off to you if you can - I would be on the floor in about an hour :-) I like the style of number 4 but agree that they are a touch too pink! Good luck!

I usually wear flats. But when I do wear heels, I find them really comfortable. I don't think it will be a problem for the wedding.

I've photographed weddings in four inch heels before, it can't be worse than that!

I really love the Prada & Kate Spades. But I 2nd the comfort factor...you will be in the for a long time!

#1 is so beautiful and I love when brides wear different color shoes than the dress and they stand out, especially when they are as fabulous as all of these. Not liking #7 that much, because I think they are a little bold for your delicate dress.

I love the J Crew and Kate Spade shoes. The yellow J Crew shoes are to die for!

PRADA!!!!!!!

Amber said...

I vote for #1. You could wear them again and they're rad.

Kellyry said...

I absolutely adore #7! If I wasn't about to leave a well-paying job to become a poor grad student, I may have had to buy these. They are gorgeous!

Chelsea said...

i like number 1 the best.

Lorrie said...

I love #7!!

Kate said...

I love the Louboutins, but I love all Louboutins that I see. I think that Kate Spade shoes are much cuter than they are comfortable, so they would be my last choice though they are cute. I saw a wedding where the bride wore bright yellow CLs and it was very cute. Good Luck!

Kate said...

Ok, these are just too fun! http://www.bergdorfgoodman.com/store/catalog/prod.jhtml?itemId=prod26650119&parentId=cat271001&masterId=cat208401&index=18&cmCat=cat000000cat200648cat203100cat261003cat208401cat271001

Definitely go for comfort-you're going to end up kicking off those fancy high heels!! Also, it might be really cute to surprise Rob and instead of spending a lot of money on shoes, splurge on some fancy-shmancy hotel along your honeymoon for a night! (And who knows-maybe he'll buy you a pair of super fab shoes as a thank you after you guys get back!)

adore the kate spades. a small suggestion: have you seen the balenciaga escarpins sandal (not bootie)? it's my newest object of affection and i think you should consider getting it for the wedding!
