    MarieSam --

    Your red shoes are MAGNIFICENT and totally seem to fit your personality that I feel like I've gotten to know here on BDW! There sweet and beautiful, but sassy and sophisticated -- they're SO YOU!

    And while the white Cole Haan's are amazing, I don't think they have the same pizzazz as the less expensive red ones. (My FI just walked into the room and he said the red ones are far sexier, too! Always nice to get the male perspective, eh?)

    CONGRATS on making the best decision to go with the red....and save a little green while you were at it!

      I really like the red rather than the first pair.

      I am all for comfort so will just be wearing a wedge flip flop that no one's going to see under my dress any way.

          I agree with the ladies,the red are beauties!!

          question, are you having your ceremony on a hard surface? I would love to wear heals, but I want my ceremony on the sand, flip floppy sandals for me I guess...lol

            Great choice MS!!!

            I did red shoes too, and loved them!!! Mind you, mine did cost me $400 including the dye job, but so worth it :-) I'll be posting photos of the wedding now that I received my pro pics.

            Jenn, I got married on the beach with my high heels. There are little rubber "stopper" that are clear that you can put over your heels to protect them and stabilize you when walking on "shifty" surfaces. I paid $5 for them here in Toronto, and they worked beautifully :-)

                    This makes me laugh, I would have done the same thing. Well I'm probably to cheap to buy the $400 pair to begin with, but I would have wanted to, but I totally would have traded them for the cute & cheap ones. :)
