    Cute!  I like the little bit of sparkle :)  Did you buy them as is, or dye them and everything yourself?

     

    I'm actually having the same kind of problem...I bought some flats that I LOVE for my beach wedding, but I had to return them because I have to get something with an inch heel so I don't step on my dress.  It's driving me nuts, because it is SO HARD to find cute shoes with only an inch heel or wedge on them.  I'd like to just buy some shoes and not have to dye them or add shoe clips or anything myself, but I feel like I've looked everywhere and I haven't found anything that I love...and I really don't want to have to settle on something unless I'm absolutely sure that I have no other options.  *Sigh*  We'll see!

      I feel your pain! I had such a hard time finding another pair that I liked. I had to get these dyed, as well they originally had diffrent flowers attached that dyed HORRIBLY so I had to buy a pair of shoe clips from etsy and remove the ones that were already on. What a process :(

        MaggieandJay - I got those shoes from an Ideeli sale. The brand is Unisa and the style name is Kylee, I believe.

              I purchased your same Badgley Mischka shoes for my wedding on May 28th, 2011.  They are so cute and I am just hoping they will be comfortable! These shoes ran big on me and I had to order a half size down....Did you run into the same problem. I am just really hoping they are comfortable and started wearing them aroung the house. :) What color is your dress?  My dress is ivory and I am hoping that the white shoe will go with it onces my dress comes in! 

               

              I am trying to figure out what shoe to wear for my beach ceremony and was worried that if I wore flats that my dress would be too long. Are you concerned about that?  I was thinking that I needed to get wedges the same height has the Badgley's so the dress would not be too long but I would love to hear flats if I could. 

               

              Thanks!

That's my justification.  The other justification is that my shoe size is always out. So, once I find a shoe I like, I have to jump on it. I've had several "*&^&^%# Missed my chance!!!" moments. Initially, I lusted after a gorgeous, but very expensive pair of jelly flip flops. But, after thinking things over, I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a pair of jellies when that money could go toward buying two pairs of nice shoes for the cost of one. Plus, hubby is our only source of income right now. I'm studying for the bar exam. (*&&^%$#*^%$#) So... who knows, maybe down the line, I'll end up with different shoes (as I am always looking at shoes). But for now, here are my shoes for the DW dinner and beach ceremony.

                @Melfaybik Hiya bride! :) Both my Badgley Mischka and DVF shoes (along with about three other pairs) should be coming in today. So, I'll try 'em on and give them a go. I've read a ton of reviews about them being comfy. Also, I ordered a half size down because the online reviews mentioned the shoes run a tad on the large side. Once they come in and are on my feet, I'll update this post for ya on how I feel about them in person and on the toesies. And, I am torn between ivory or white dress, actually. I haven't ordered it yet because I have about 6 more months to get into perfect shape, but I know what dress I'm getting. Just a matter of which color. I am leaning more toward ivory, so hoping that a very very light ivory and the white will do fine together. I buy all the shoes first bc of the limited number in my size. 

                 

                As for the height difference in heels/shoes and the dress, I am going to just wear the DVF flip flops. The aisle @ MP will have a runner so I won't be dragging the dress on the sand for any lengthy period of time, and to be honest, I'm just not as concerned about the dress height anymore. I *was* concerned about it, then thought, "Oh, whatever!" lol I'll have the pretty shoes for the pics and all that jazz, and I'd rather have the dress a little long for 30 mins during my ceremony, than high water short for the rest of the pics/day and unable to wear heels. Plus, FI is about a foot taller than I am, so I always prefer to be in heels around him. Hope this helps!! It was just more comfortable for me to do it this way. I've seen some GREAT wedge flip flops, I just wanted flat flip flops though.

                    Hi Melissa! (sorry didn't realize you posted your name at the end earlier) lol 

                     

                    Well, the shoes just got here. I had to chase down the mailman for the package, too! I looooves 'em! Going down a half-size was definitely the right choice. Any bigger and they'd be slipping off my feet for sure. Looks beautiful, can't wait to wear them! Another bride commented on a thread I started that it's the same shoe she wore for her wedding and she loved them, too! 

                     

                    @ Hutchets, sorry, who's sandals are you talking about?

                      Oops=I thought I replied to just that thread and that it would connect to it but apparently I didn't do it correctly.  I am referring to Tifany's blue jeweled unisa sandals.
