I'm getting married in February and I am looking for some block heeled shoes. I can't walk on spindly thin heels so need some stability. I would love some blue sparkly shoes but just can't find any at all. I can't even find any nice ivory ones. My dress is ivory, my bridesmaids will be in navy blue. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
I can't walk in heels - but I bought some anyway for my wedding (not as tall as the pics above) and there was something about the whole day where I just floated on them and it was fab, right up until walking the last 100 yards home when I ended up in bare feet.
Tried them on again to wear for a night out and they were the most uncomfortable things ever and I just couldn't.
I think what I'm saying is - have a go with some heels!
I wore trainers due to foot trouble. They were barely visible under a long dress (people only knew because the vicar mentioned it in his sermon...). It meant I wasn't troubled by pain on 'the day'. They are hard to dance in so I changed to proper ballet shoes with lambswool toe protectors (not enough support for the whole day - but heaven for 5-10 mins). Should warn you, my mother was totally scandalised when she found out about the trainers inthe bridesmaid's car on the way to the church:
mother to bridesmaid: what is B wearing on her feet?
Mother: did B forget to take off her indoor shoes?
Bridesmaid: er, no...
Mother: hard stare
but she was ultimately fine with it. DH thought it was fabulous.
I highly recommend being comfortable and feeling like yourself on the day.
Have you tried hotter? Most are hideous but some are fun.
I had mine made as I really struggled getting high street or bridal shop shoes to fit my wide feet. Website I used was bespokebigday.com, they were very reasonably priced and I was really happy with them! Comfy enough to wear all day!
