The shoes! Can you believe I almost forgot about the shoes?!
Truth be told they weren’t a high priority to me. I know, I know, feel free to take away my girly-girl card right now. I’m just not a shoe person and couldn’t justify spending $$$ on what is essentially an accessory. Sure, I’ll spurge on a nice dress, but shoes? Eh.
My original plan was to wear my cowgirl boots for the reception and get a nice pair of navy heels for the ceremony. I started casually looking for the navy heels almost as soon as I got engaged and found nothing I liked. Do you know how hard it is to find a cute pair of navy heels that aren’t $100+?! Pretty darn hard.
So I gave up. I just didn’t care enough about the shoes to really put an effort into the search. I decided to wear my cowgirl boots for both the ceremony and the reception and be done with it. Did I really need navy heels for the ceremony? Nope. I did not.
Of course, just when I decided to give up, I found something. They weren’t navy, they weren’t anything even close to what I had envisioned, but as soon as I put them on I knew they were perfect.
Gold heels from DSW for a whopping $49.99. Score!
I’m already planning on wearing them for New Years Eve and the rehearsal dinner. That way I can break them in a little before the wedding.
I’m sticking with my original plan and wearing the heels for the ceremony and photos, then changing into my boots for the reception and dancing the night away in them. I can’t wait!
Did you buy special shoes for your wedding? Did you go with white or a pop of color?
