This (http://m.zappos.com/clarks-cynthia-eleve-nude-patent-leather) looks comfy. Is it dressy enough?

Here is my criteria for the shoes: heels no higher than 3 inches, ankle strap or some sort of strap close to the ankle, something I can wear with other outfits like dressy jeans/sundresses, and under $200. Is that possible? :lol: Now if I can't find nude shoes what other colors should I look at?

I have these, which I wear with anything solid colored.

You could also do a strappy metallic: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/product/badgley-mischka-sandals-walda-strappy?ID=586042&CategoryID=17396#fn=spp%3D33%26ppp%3D96%26sp%3D1%2 6rid%3D8

And a peep toe black patent leather works with almost anything.

Like I said, I have bad feet and had foot surgery that means I can't wear pumps -- just shoes with straps.

These http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003VQPCS0/ref=asc_df_B003VQPCS02001969/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B003VQPCS0&linkCode=asn&hvpos=1o3&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=855014011844410778&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt= are affordable, really flattering because the V strap lengthens your leg, and neutral colored. I can wear them all day.

These (http://m.zappos.com/cole-haan-air-juliana-pump-75-nougat-patent) look nice, maybe the cove color will work though I'm iffy because there's no strap.IMO the first two are day shoes (too casual) because of the stacked heel. For evening, your heel should be covered (like the 3rd shoe) or metallic.

I'm a simple kind of gal, can't you tell? I like these (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/glint-milly-sandal/3230696?origin=category&resultback=1009) though it would be tough to wear with other things. These (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/bp-platinum-larissa-sandal/2991968?origin=category&resultback=2339) are cute (and cheap!). Like these (http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/jessica-simpson-calie-pump/3172497?origin=category&resultback=564)too but it may be too light. :( These (http://www.jildorshoes.com/product.cfm/hurl/vail-peep-toe-pump-nude-patent/PI=86642) are cute also but once again, not sure of the color.

After looking around I admit I ADORE the d'Orsay style, so pretty.

Not necessarily for you, but for anyone looking for a dressy sandal with heels when you really have trouble finding comfortable shoes -- these are not cheap but oh are they perfect: http://www.zappos.com/oh-shoes-gail-bronze-metallic-nappa.

I love good, comfortable, supportive sandals. I have quite a collection of Naots. :D

Pardon my ignorance, but why does the shoes matter so much? Surely if the gown is the right length (which I think it is), you won't see her feet at all...she could wear nasty sneakers and no one would know.

I have several friends who opted to get married wearing the most comfortable pair of shoes they owned, since no one could see them anyway. :p

You'd be surprised how many times my shoes showed up in my wedding pictures and I wore a floor length gown. Same with most friends and their wedding pictures. Any time you walk, dance, sit down, shoes show. My wedding photographer decided to take a closeup picture of my shoe (with my foot in it) for whatever reason. She was into details.

I have a friend who wore silver shoes to her wedding, another floor length strapless, of course. As she was walking down the isle, the silver shoes caught my eye--I am attracted to sparkly objects ;)--and I am sure I wasn't the only one.

Are these (http://www.dsw.com/shoe/js+by+jessica+soka+pump?prodId=241664&productRef=SEARCH) dressy enough? I just discovered DSW!

These (http://www.zappos.com/product/7696427/color/327681) are simple and can't decide between mocha or taupe.

These (http://www.zappos.com/product/7846342/color/329818) look like they would match but once again, it's a stacked heel.

WOW, just WOW! (http://www.zappos.com/stuart-weitzman-fever-bruciato-quasar-patent)

:rofl: Me, too. About five pairs. But I assumed that was because I get them in Israel. I'm always happily surprised at how well they sell here, they're not cheap.

I like the first ones--definitely dressy enough. Higher heel than I would wear but if you can do it, rock on!! :respec: Stacked heel isn't as dressy IMO.

Those Stuart Weitzmans have a very pointy toe. I generally avoid pointy toed shoes because they make me look like I am wearing skis. Again, the problem of being short.

I found a few D'Orsay pumps, but none in a 5.

Or if she walked or danced.

I like the first pair, but cork might be too casual, same for the 3rd pair with the stacked heel. The second pair is nice, but the color looks weirdly mottled. Maybe it's just the photo. I also think a wedge is more casual. And I would stick with a patent leather, it's dressier.

Personally, I prefer a peeptoe http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/vera-wang-lavender-selima-pump/3230151?origin=category&resultback=206 This has a lower heel: http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/kors-michael-kors-ghita-pump/3175551?origin=category&resultback=4656

As to those shoes, Anita18. Um...your gown is very dressy and classic. The shoes are way too casual for the dress. If you are looking for a lower heel that wouldn't get stuck in the grass, consider this or something along these lines: http://www.zappos.com/dyeables-peg-silver-metallic

These ones are padded for comfort and are dyeable. So you can dye them any color you want afterwards.
How DOES one dye them? Rit dye?


Hemming your dress would also eliminate those slight marks left at the hem, too, wouldn't it? With all the money you saved on the dress itself, the alterations shouldn't be a major expense.
I'm trying to get the ENTIRE wedding under $5,000. I'd rather spend money on comfortable dressy shoes I can wear again, than hemming a dress I'll only wear once. :shuffle:


:rofl: I went away, came back, and find that FSU now has fashion police.

However this looks to be a consensus intervention.
:rofl: Right you are!

No offense taken, though. :) I'm just QUITE picky with shoe comfort, because fit in dressy shoes is very dicey on me. Even in extra wide shoes, my heels still come up, so I'm going to need a heel strap to hold them in.

I might go for a light blue, but silver or white shoes are really not my style. :P Especially if I'm going to go for rewearability.

I will do more shopping on Zappos and report back. ;)
