something blue…

I don’t consider myself a totally traditional girl, but when it came to our wedding, I really wanted things done by the book.  We didn’t do photos beforehand so that Chad saw me for the first time when I came down the aisle, we saved the top tier of our wedding cake to eat on our first anniversary, and obviously, I made sure I was wearing ‘something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.’

But my ‘something blue’ wasn’t nearly as pretty as these!  I love the idea of incorporating a little bit of color into your wedding outfit with gorgeous shoes — it’s such a perfect way to incorporate a tradition but to make it a little unique and your own!  Shoes are probably the wedding-day staple that you’re most likely to re-wear, so I love the idea of picking a pair you’ll love for years to come (four years later, I haven’t gotten around to re-dying my white satin wedding shoes, that I would “totally” dye black after the wedding, sigh). 

Also, since I was out of my heels about 2 hours into our reception, I’ll tell you that these are AMAZINGLY comfy and you could definitely dance in them!  I paired them with a dress I picked up this summer — I’m still enjoying looser fits that hide my baby bump every once in a while, although I know it’s only going to be more of challenge in the next few weeks!

    While I didn’t incorporate my “something blue” into my shoe choice, I *did* choose shoes that fit our wedding colors. My shoes were purple (our colors were plum and yellow). There’s a picture of them here:

    It’s so funny how traditional you were with the wedding because I always thought you’d be someone that would do their own thing for their wedding. I’m getting married next May, and me and my fiance have already decided that we’re going to do our own thing (with the only traditional part being our traditional Hindu wedding ceremony). We’re going to see each other before the wedding and everything. These heels are ADORABLE and I would wear them if only they wouldn’t make me be taller than my fiance 🙁

    […] a quick word about this dress: I own it in two different colors (see it in blue here), and it’s one of my favorites in my whole closet.  The fit is perfect, but it’s […]
