    I picked up my dress after my final fitting yesterday. OMG! I LOVE IT!!!

    WTOO BRIDES | Bridal Gown Collection | Style Isadora | White English net dress with surplice front draped midriff. Feathered and beaded flowers on skirt. Puddle train.
    I was planning on wearing flip flops for the beach and ballet flats for the reception. My wedding is in 11 days. The other night FI was saying how he loves heels and wishes i wore them more. Should I get heels for the reception? I could always change them if my feet hurt, right?

      Beautiful dress!! I say at least give the heels a try to appease your new hubby at the reception. If they kill, you can always switch back to your flip flops. Good luck - your only 11 days out - how exciting!!!!!!

          It's beautiful! Congrats and happy wedding next week!
          And I say wear them for a bit and switch back when your feet start to hurt!

            your dress is amazing - I love it so much. Here is the problem with heels after wearing flats...either your dress is going to be too short with the heels since it will be hemmed to the flats for the beach ceremony...or your dress will be too long if you hem it to the heals and you will be dragging it all around on the beach.

            I'd stick with the ballet flats...or go inbetween and do wedges for both because I think it needs to be consistent with the length of your dress

              Your dress is absolutely dreamy! I love it!! I am having a hard time chosing what to wear for shoes as well... I don't want to have to carry extra pairs around or have to run back to the room etc... to change... I really want heels but I know my feet in the heat and I am probably better off getting flats. :s

                I agree with Jess you may have a problem with you dress being to short for heels since it was hemmed for ballet flats. How about getting some really cute and sexy heels for the rehearsal dinner or welcome dinner?? Or if you are doing TTD maybe incorporate heels somehow??

                  What a beautfiul dress! I like the idea of playing up the heels at something like the welcome or rehearsal dinner. That way people can acutally see them!

                    What a GLAMOROUS gown, Darcy! I can only imagine how stunning it's going to look...

                    And I agree with the other girls about the issues with the heels vs. the length of your dress. Maybe go with some really sexy heels for the other times already suggested (rehearsal dinner, etc.) OR if you want to have a little fun on your wedding night, maybe get something super sultry to go with a little negligee? Just a thought!

                    CONGRATULATIONS in advance and I hope your wedding in Punta Cana (only a few short days away!) is 100% fabulous and everything you've dreamed it to be!

                      Gorgeous dress!!!! I would have both types of shoes handy and alternate when need be between the two.
