Looking for the Perfect Wedding Heel! (With Photos)

Recommended Posts

First of all, I LOVE shoes. I have probably been more excited to find my wedding heels than my actual dress. With that in mind, I have had quite the roller-coaster with finding my perfect heels...and my wedding is still a year away! ; ) Hopefully my search can help some others in finding their perfect shoe. Let me know if you would like to know websites, prices, anything that I have done that can give you some guidance!

 

(BTW, the shoes that I have shown here are for sale except for the first Magenta Stuart Weitzman's...Not trying to make any money, just want to get back as much as I put into them if possible.)

 

I LOVE the Stuart Weitzman "Jumbo" heels. They looked amazingly dark pink in the photo (at least on my computer screen), but upon getting them, they turned out more magenta/purple.

Everything about them was great, VERY comfortable, loved the heel/height, loved the bow an peep toe, etc. So then I found a site that had these in white and would professionally dye them for you. So I ordered them in a brighter pink, sure so as to not get purple and this is what I got.

Again, LOVED them, except now they were too pink for me and I wanted a little more fuschia (am I Goldilocks here or what?!?)

 

So I figured I wasn't going to get my Stuart Weitzman Jumbo heels in the color I wanted and settled on looking for a different style. I found these, different from what I've ever seen, fuschia colored, sling back peep-toe, cheap...perfect!

I got them and they are too tall for the length of my gown (by about an inch). ~SIGH~ They look great on, like to color, love the ruffles, but still a hit and miss.

 

My goal is to find a cute shoes with about a 3 1/2" inch heel (can't be over 4", would like a little under that), fuscia/darker pink color, a bow or some sort of embellishment (like the ruffles) preferred, and I want to rhinestone the heel with swarovski crystals. I will keep this thread updated with what I find next, and would love any "leads" ; )

I heart you Raychel Raye! I have been following your shoe adventure, and love all of the ones you have picked- but I know the feeling about them just not being quite *right* I wish you all the best- and I will continue to follow and hope for you! wink.gif

Hi There! I am wearing the same color shoe. I have 2 pair...both by Zigi Soho. One pair can be found on DSW.com

 

Zigi Soho Jeweled Satin Platform Sandal - DSW

 

They look AMAZING on. The other pair I also got from DSW but they are no longer available online.

 

Zigi Soho Gloria Satin Platform Sandal Evening & Wedding Sandal Shop Women's Shoes- DSW

 

are both about the same color as your ruffle shoe.

LadyTrunck - Haha! Awww, thanks! I know it shouldn't be this complicated, but for some reason it is certainly turning out to be!

 

Sgray - I love those first ones with the 2 buckles! Unfortunately when I clicked on them it said they were sold out (go figure, huh!). I think they'd probably be too tall for my dress anyway. Thanks for posting them! They're the exact color I want!

 

I just can't give up on those Stuart Weitzman's! I think I'm going to order them in white, get a fuchsia color swatch and find some place to dye them (again!) I didn't get a color swatch the first time around and I'm pretty sure that's where I went wrong. I just got so impatient and wanted them already! If anyone knows any place on-line that will dye shoes that aren't originally purchased from them, let me know!! I've been looking myself, and haven't found a place.

Oh RaychelRae

I went through the exact same thing!!! I bought several fuschia shoes trying to find the exact color and heel higth and it was a challenge. Lots of returns! Finally I settled on caparros italia in fuschia (the LAST pair sold ever). Still not my true love but I just got sick of buying/returning. Thankfully, I still love to shop so what size are you? I seem to come across Stuart's all the time and will let you know! Oh, and I thought I found a website that dyes shoes to your pref so I will try to find that too

Shoes are serious business. 'Nuff said!

Raychel:
If you really like them, try in store if you have a DSW near you. I was just in on Saturday and they still had them in stock. The ones with the ruffle have a slightly lower heel and happen to be on clearance right now. Good luck! :-)
