Since I got my wedding dress at the end of March I have been obsessing about shoes, veil or not to veil, vintage hair combs, headbands, jewelry, basically what to wear with my beautiful dress. I have to admit this is so hard to do since I haven’t actually seen the dress for 5 weeks and won’t be seeing it again till the end of the summer when it comes in to the shop.
Of course being a bit of a shoe fanatic I have been trawling the internet looking for visions of ivory, lace and satin. I know for sure that I definitely don’t want traditional bridal shoes as they really are not for me. Even if I got them dyed after the wedding I don’t think I would wear them again.
With that in mind I have been looking at alternative shoes to wear with my dress and ones that I can wear again. So whilst in Selfridges these little lovelies caught my eye…
Jimmy Choo’s in Champagne Lace…gorgeous!
I think I tried on about 4 different styles, but these ones made the cut:
Isabel- The sensible option
Lace- The Mary Jane’s
Nova- The sling backs
I am absolutely in love with these shoes and I only intend to get married once so I thought I might as well spoil myself. Sadly I didn’t actually get a pair on Wednesday. It was so hard to walk away, but I am totally confused by which ones style to go for and I don’t want to just jump in without fully doing my research- there may be something else out there.
I have also been lusting after these…
Swan Embellished Satin Pump by Manolo Blanik….ahhh a girl can dream!
I just love these statement Della Sky Blossom bridal shoes by Freya Rose.
The only problem I have with both of these shoes is that although they are both stunning they are both still very traditionally bridal and I wouldn’t necessarily wear them again. The Manolo’s are way out of my price range and the Freya Rose shoes are in the same price bracket as the Jimmy shoes, which I know I would wear again and again.
The budget buster in me did spot these shoes in Dune which are exact replicas of the Jimmy Choo Champagne range for a third of the price. However after reading a whole load of wedding blogs right now the best advice that I have read is to spoil yourself as it is your wedding day after all.
So with that advice in mind I am going to get myself a pair of beautiful Choo’s next week, but which ones?
You will have to wait and see!
