Happy Wednesday everyone!

I'm very jealous that Kristyn is off having fun on vacation this week, so it's only me for today's link-up!

The only wedding "news" I have right now is that my dress is in! I get to go try it on! I can't wait!!!

Aside from that happy development, I don't have any particular wedding news to share this week, so instead let's have a chat!

Today I want to talk about wedding shoes since I haven't even really started to look and need some inspiration.

I feel like anything goes these days, from traditional:



To "Something Blue":




To fun and colorful:



To Kate Spade:



And, you know, all of those bling bling ones:



Then there's cowboy boots, flats, sandals, bare feet, etc.

So many choices!

I think choosing wedding shoes depends on the venue, like bare feet on the beach or boots for a barn/country-themed wedding.

I've also admired brides who wear shoes in the same shade as the bridesmaid dresses. I think it's a fun way to tie everything together.

However, I'm planning to go the traditional route in an ivory shoe. I will also probably change into flats or Toms for the reception so I can more comfortably dance the night away.

My dream shoes? 

Duh, it was its own category above: Kate Spade.

Unfortunately, spending $200+ on shoes is just not justifiable for me. I'd rather invite more people than wear a designer on my feet for a couple of hours. But that's just me.

Where should I look?

I've drooled over the Kate Spade shoes on My Glass Slipper.
I've clicked around Pinterest.
I was recently introduced to Hey Lady and can't wait to check out the selection!

Then there's the obvious: Nordstrom, Macy's, Zappos, and DSW.

I've also toyed with the idea of buying a plain shoe that's comfy from David's Bridal or something relatively cheap and then buying shoe clips from etsy with bows and/or pearls.

What do you think? Where did you find yours?

Please link-up!

My dress just came in too! So exciting! I've been looking for shoes pretty much since we got engaged lol Personally, I'm going with the "something blue." But the bridesmaid dresses are blueish so it kinda ties in??

Have fun picking up and trying on your dress!!

My shoes were the first thing I bought for the wedding. I saw them in a high street store, and couldn't stop thinking about them for the next 2 days (I know, sad huh?) so I went and bought them! They were bright purple with sparkly bits on the toes. Man, I love those shoes!

Love the blue heels with the bow. But going classic ivory is a good call as well.
