@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.
