Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!

Recommended Posts

I was thinking the same. I saw one on babyonline and I absolutely love it. I keep going back to it. But I want to try some on just to see if the style suits me. It's a bit nerve racking ordering a dress I've never tried on, but worst case i'll try selling it and it's really cheap so it's not the end of the world.

I think we have a lot in common!

I ordered a custom dress online, from eBay, direct from a factory in China. I was really nervous at first but it turned out AMAZING. It was just under $150 with shipping and had $55 bill from seamstress for a couple of minor alterations (adding a train pick up/bustle, steaming, minor tweaks here and there)! I most definitely was NOT going to spend more on shoes than I did on my dress, just couldn't do it LOL. (love that shoe site though - if you knew EXACTLY what you wanted and couldn't find it, what better then to have it made -so long as you are ok with the price tag lol)

I kept searching for the right shoes and figured I'd just end up going barefoot (but then decided the sand might be way too *&%%^$^% hot at 2pm).

Then a couple weeks ago, not looking for shoes at all... I was in Walmart and found the PERFECT pair! They are silvery metallic, flip flop style top with rhinestone jewels on the straps, and have a bit of a wedge heel! They are not full wedges, but they are soo cute! For $20 I think I got a steal of a deal! I just snapped a quick pic of them - attached.

I also bought these cute flip flops for after the ceremony that leave 'just married' imprinted in the sand: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Just-Married-White-Bride-Flip-Flops-Something-Blue-Wedding-Bridal-Shower-Gift-/400408844478?pt=US_Women_s_Shoes&var=&hash=item5d3a3a18be

This is another idea: DIY shoes. Finding a pair of white wedges and then pimping them up with lace and other fancy things. This youtube video gave me the idea, it seems pretty simple https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fE-cEVAsRZM

 

And that my friends is 150!!!

ha ha ha!!! I cant get enough every day for 150 yet...

I saw the view and its cute :)

@@Lilian84 Yes, was almost going for Maggie Sottero Tracey... the price is $1,700 plus alterations. I will order it because I dont feel completely crazy about that dress or any dress. People say "you will find it" I cannot find the dress I am falling in love with :(

I have to order basically ASAP if I want a Maggie dress...all are supper big on me and I think that is one of the reasons why.

@@bkprettygirl  are you thinking flats, heels, or wedges? It's not as easy as I thought to find a fancy wedge sandal. I'm going shopping in a few weeks to try dresses on the 'bridal street' in Montreal, they have a lot of shoe stores so I will check them out.

    • 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.
