Looking for the Perfect Wedding Heel! (With Photos)

Recommended Posts

I adore your hunt for your perfect Wedding Heel!!!! I kept telling myself finding the shoes are harder than the dress?? Really. haha!! good to know someone understands my love for shoes and feels my pain for my quest!! I went into it thinking I wanted Blue Manolos... dead set on them, but they were too high and the beading was catching on my dress! BIG TEARS!!... I came out of my shoe quest falling in love with Hot Pink Kate Spade Clarice and couldnt be happier!!!

 

The swatch is PERFECT!!! I love Dessy. I ordered some of there swatches and color samples as well!! They came so well put together and professional!! A+ to Dessy!!

You've hit it dead on! I went into the bridal store, saw a dress on the mannequin and said, "I'll take that one". My one bridesmaid sent me a photo of a dress she kinda wants to wear and I said, "Sure! Do it". Yet here I am ordering color swatches for shoes?!?!

I totally considered those Manolos at one point too! And I NEVER thought of the beading snagging your dress. Oh, and TOUCHE on the Kate Spades!! She is fabulous!

If I have to order any other sort of color swatches I'm totally going back to dessy! You're so right about the "put together/professional" part. My swatches came in their own cardboard tri-fold folder. That way I don't have color swatches lying all over the place.

I haven't been on the forum in SO long! But I have started my crystalling on my shoes, so I had to make sure to log on and update the thread! I had a change of heart since my last decision, I found some different shoes, different style but amazing color and MUCH cheaper (my conscious was getting the best of me with the Stuart Weitzman's). Here are the winners!

I'm not crazy about the "bow" on the toe, but they blend in so well when they're on that you don't even notice them. They are a satin-y material that gives sort of a plastic look in photos, but they're beautiful in real life. Here are my crystalling materials.

And here is my work so far (yeah I know, I got a LONG way to go!) Even just the few I have tacked on so far sparkle like crazy in real life, I'm so excited!!

i like the idea of adding crystals to the shoe to make it pop I will definately consider that when I buy my shoe, it gives it that perfect finish

The 'blinging' is going to look AMAZING but I would never have the patience to finish the project!

 

I just bought my shoes last week. They are Kate Spade Chrisette

Adding your own sparkle to your shoes = AMAZING IDEA! :) Can't wait to see the final result!

 

They're gonna look amazing Raychel, and btw, I think the replacement/non-Weitzman shoes are just as fabulous as the others you'd shown earlier at the start of your thread. Actually, my faves were the ones with the ruffles, but if they didn't work with your gown, what can you do, right?

 

I think the new path you've taken on your "journey" is going to end in reaching a beautiful, bedazzled "destination" when your shoes are finally finished!

 

Good luck and keep us posted!

I was wondering where you were and what was your final decision with the shoes. and I LOVE the added bling!!!! I think I will have to do that also. Since i'm still looking for some shoes myself.

Becks - I almost went with kate spade too. I love the ones you chose! I've never seen anything like them before!

 

islandbride - Thanks! Yeah the two styles are so different but I love them both. These actually may be better for the whole laid-back/fun Mexican wedding anyway. Less formal! And you are absolutely right by calling it a destination! HA! I love it!

 

Mischaka - I'm going to go with the latest photo of the bright pink ones that I'm starting to rhinestone. It seems like its going to be a lot of work, but I'm so excited for them that it doesn't really bother me to sit there and tediously place glue and rhinestones on them. Since you seem to be just as excited as I am for your shoes, I'm sure it won't bother you either!! ; )

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
