Blue Suede Shoes

Ok, so maybe not suede, but hey, I'm flexible! I have recently decided that I would like to have blue shoes underneath my dress. Josh's favorite color is blue, and I would like to include little pops of blue in our wedding, though I am not sure where that will come in with all the yellow I am planning. Maybe some pops in my bouquet, but that's a separate post.

So I decided that I would look up some blue flats on Zappos and I found some that I like, but they are SUPER expensive! First of all, I don't buy shoes online.... ever. I have extremely sensitive feet and I need to try on shoes before I purchase them to make sure that I can walk in them, but I was just looking to see what was out there. This is what I found.

So I like the look of these and it is definitely a prerequisite for the big flower/pompom to be on the end. I could do a shoe clip, but I am afraid that if I was to order it separately the colors wouldn't match. The ones on the left are more shoe like, which is good, but they still don't look that comfortable. The ones on the right are more slipper like, and I wouldn't be able to do that all day. No support. I definitely like the bright blue. No dark blue for me.

I also really like the flats. Josh is tall, but so am I. I would rather have him towering over me than the other way around. I do NOT want to be 6'3" on my wedding day. Also, the heels might sink into the ground seeing as it will be outside. Also, if I wear heels for eight hours, I might not be able to walk for a week. Like I said sensitive feet.

Anywho, does anyone know anywhere that I can find blue flats for less than $50 online? I don't care about designers AT ALL. I just need some ideas. What do you think of my blue flats? Thanks everyone!

  1. Modcloth, Urban Outfitters, and Ruche are three of my favorite places to buy shoes online. Also, I love the color combo! Our original colors were yellow and blue, but my man requested we replace blue with green.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions! I am such a cheap-o, but I can't imagine spending more than $50 on shoes, even for my wedding. I will definitely keep those ideas in mind.

  5. I thought that I already posted this awhile ago, but I don't see it there so if it's a duplicate, I apologize.

    Your link is a good one as well. I saw these but they are a bit "funky" (for lack of a better word) and might not be right for a wedding but they are sweet.

    Hope you're having FUN with all the aspects of wedding planning.
