      That is amazing! I wanted to do DIY this too but was affraid to ruin my heels.

      What adhesive did you use and did you have to lacquer the whole shoe to keep the stones/pearls from falling off?

      How long did this take you?

       

      After this whole wedding is over and done with I'm going to start Bling-ing!

        It is really not that difficult.  I purchased 5000 small flat back pearls on ebay, as well as 1440 each of clear swarovski crystals in 12ss, 16ss and 20s along with several other handfuls of flatback pearls with crystals.  The glue that is used is called E-6000.  The glue dries very fast so you have to work on a small area at a time. The glue has wonderful reviews and seems to have a flexible consistency that will not allow the stones to pop off.  I started with the larger embellishments first and made sure I had the exact same number for each shoe and decorated them to be as identical as possible.  After the larger decorate stones were complete I filled in with the pearls and swarovski Crystals.  I have quite a few crystals and pearls left over, which I plan to use on my OOT bags to embellish and add initials to each.  If you have any other questions I will be glad to assist if possible.

              I haven't decided on shoes yet, but I was looking at these (from victoria's secret online). Did everyone decide their shoes after deciding on their accessories, or vice versa?

                Those are cute!


                 

                I'm starting the hunt for shoes now but haven't been able to find anything close to what I'm looking for.  Was hoping for something white with a little bling hehe.  Since our wedding is on the beach I'll likely be doing flip flops, or some kind of flat sandal - no heels for me I don't think :(

                  I like the middle ones, those are nice with just the right amount of embellishment. As for me I had a specifc vision in mind and did not rest until I found something that matched. It was easier to find my earings that matched my vision first rather than shoes. The shoes I'm still not completely satisfied on though

                   

                  These are my shoes

                    Hey Chelsea!

                     

                    Your inspiration shoes are to die for, I absolutely love them. However, if you have the time patience to bling out the Jessica Simpson pumps, I think they will work beutifully with Alma.  I think I'll find myself in a similar boat. It's becoming mission impossible to find a sleekand sexy chartreuse shoe. This is my inspiration shoe...

                      Hi Tova, Thanks. Your shoes are very gorgeous too. You picked a pretty impossible shoe to duplicate as an inspiration, they truely are one of a kind.
