    Got the dress... need help on the shoes

    Advertisements
    I said yes to a dress

    My issue is that I really have no idea what kind of shoes to put with it. I definitely want some exciting shoes and I may splurge financially, I haven't committed to a price range. I think I want something strappy or at least peep-toe. I was also looking at purple colored shoes since that is most likely a wedding color. The dress is "cafe" and silver colors so bright gold and bright silver would clash. I'm not sure how bright white shoes would work. Anybody have any recommendations? TIA

    Oh and a peek at the dress:

    I am terrible with shoe choices and always defer to my sister or a friend, but I just wanted to say, WOW! That is a beautiful dress!

    You can spray paint your shoes! I know several brides who have done that! I had a dress similar in color to yours (except it was called "oyster") and I had the hardest time finding shoes to match. I got lucky though and I found some 5 inch heels I didn't wear them after the ceremony though, I ended up putting on flats because my feet hurt.

    Thanks! I have thought about doing some crafty adjustments to the shoes but I'm too afraid to mess them up!

    I think jewel tones would look really pretty with a dress like that! So the purple would be a good choice imo. I'm not sure how I feel about white with it, I think a different color would go with it better.

    Thanks guys! I'm still searching for some jewel tone shoes as well but I just can't find a style I like!

    I've been looking at that "platino" color all day. I think I ordered 2-3 pairs in that color to see how they work out!



    In an exciting twist... Amazon has "fashion" shoes that fall under the Amazon Prime free shipping and free returns. I may go crazy with excitement.

    If it is the color I think it is, I'm betting it will work. Good luck!
