I’ve said all along that I wasn’t going to freak out about the little things and the details that I know no one will notice but me. Shoes on the other hand, are a bit more noticeable and I’m finding that, in my case (or perhaps in every bride’s case), I’m struggling to find the perfect pair.

Seriously?! Ridiculously Tall High Heels and Shoes

{SERIOUSLY?!?!}

Here’s the conundrum ::  I’m pushing 5’10”, my fiance is pushing 6′ when he’s got certain shoes on (sometimes). I don’t really want to be towering over my betrothed on our wedding day, but the shoe fashion trends this year dictate either super tall, super ridiculous, stripper-type shoes or completely flat. I know, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “suck it up and go for the flats,” but I would like a little bit of a heel to help me stand a little more straight (hide my bad posture) and it’s more fun to dance in heels.

Second issue :: Any shoe that has a tiny heel usually comes in limited colors (mostly white). I have a specific color in mind, but so far, that doesn’t seem to be a color of the season, either. I’ve been thinking of resorting to dyables…which I may still do…but they are always so uncomfortable. And finally, I have a style in mind to go with the style of my dress.

So the point of all my shoe whining? I figured I’d at least share just a few of my favorite wedding shoes if heel height, environment, dress matching and money weren’t an issue.

Clockwise: True Blue Heel, $90. Seafoam Pretty Little Heels, $172 (on sale). Gold Oxfords, $300. Sparkles & Peeps Yellow Heels, $120. Minty Green Peep Toes, $150.

I think I may have found the right shoes, but they’re currently en route, so I’m not positive. If they don’t work, I might just get out the dye and do a bit of d.i.y. for the perfect shoe. But you’ll all have to wait for the post-wedding big reveal for all the details. So there.

Stay tuned!
