Please help me find shoes for my (non-white) wedding dress

I am getting married in a couple of weeks, and have decided on this dress but have no idea what shoes to wear!

I tried some LK Bennett heels, which were beautiful, but they were too narrow for my giant feet.

I need to get the shoes decided before I can choose the colour of the bouquet, so am getting desperate grin

Would be grateful for your help (have name-changed in the v unlikely event that someone knows me - we have not made news of the wedding public smile)

Heh? A non public wedding? What about the wedding list?

Anyhoo, shoes. I reckon SILVER or a matchy blue, which could be problematic. I will look for silver. What size are you giant feet?

CybilLiberty Tue 11-Aug-09 08:13:04

saying that, if these matched the creamy white colour on the dress they could be cute

not dressy enough?

Are the LK Bennett ones online so we know what you like?

(I love LK Bennett shoes as i have ridiculous long thin feet )

No wedding list Cybil, we've been together for twelve years, so have enough toasters grin. It's going to be a quiet ceremony and lunch, and then we'll tell friends and family the next day. Bit worried about the reaction, but will cross that bridge when we come to it...

I will try those cream ones, but am a bit worried that my size 7's would look a bit clod-hoppy.

These are the lovely-but-too-narrow ones - in teal or purple would have been fab.

envy at SoupDragon's feet

CybilLiberty Tue 11-Aug-09 08:52:36

Oh I have size 8's! I never worry about clod hoppy, and they would look fab I reckon.

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 08:54:10

Only size 7 Cybil, but practically square sad

PCPlumIsMyHomeboy Tue 11-Aug-09 08:57:03

pink!

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 09:01:05

Am in work so will have to pop in and out, but an hugely grateful for the suggestions grin

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 09:47:36

Love the pink PCPlum. Then I could have raspberry pink hydrangeas...

Do you realise that your dress is the exact same colour as the shoes Carrie got married in (SATC)

<saddo emoticon>

but they would look fab

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 10:44:09

Mmm, wouldn't they be heavenly?

CybilLiberty Tue 11-Aug-09 11:55:32

Pink shoes would be lovely (altho I don't think the patent pink ones are weddingy enough) matching pink flowers would be great

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 13:01:04

Pink would be great. I will have to get a move on before all the winter shoes are in smile

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 20:02:24

Um, has anyone got any suggestions for pink shoes please? smile

purepurple Tue 11-Aug-09 20:12:17

I luve red or dead
gorgeous!

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 20:30:32

Were you looking at the Carmen ones, purepurple? They are fab, but I would be taller than DH-to-be, dammit.

Pennies Tue 11-Aug-09 20:43:43

Hmmm, well I'd say silver or pink, but if you went for silver peep toe shoe you could have pink nail varnish which woud then tie in with your bouquet.

Off to find silver shoes....

Pennies Tue 11-Aug-09 20:55:51

Similar style to your original ones

Not too high and a bit more weddingy IMO

Wedges?

Maybe a tad Come Dancing Styleee

StartingToPanic Tue 11-Aug-09 21:14:23

Like those Dune ones, Pennies, and Come Dancing is a good thing grin

The wedges are waaaay too daring!

Pennies Tue 11-Aug-09 21:32:51

Purple shiny

Puple & Silver

Hmm not sure about these, more mauve than purple but got the right blue on them too

LK Bennet again, but wedges and maybe not dressy enough

http://www.newlook.co.uk/1725329/172532977/ProductDetails.aspx Very pretty IMO]]

PCPlumIsMyHomeboy Tue 11-Aug-09 21:34:10

Ooh, I like these:
