I pondered if I should purchase high heels or wedges. Again, I considered what would work best in the grass. I didn't want the heel to sink into the ground but I don't really like wedges and my ankles tend to roll in them.
I also wanted to do something a little fun and colorful. I made up my mind and ordered a pair of heels from the internet. I loved them. They were pink peep toes with little roses on the front. I had my dress altered so it would cut off at just the right point in those shoes.
The day before my wedding I wore some heels to our rehearsal. As I practiced walking down the imaginary aisle my foot began to sink into the grass. It was awkward and embarrassing as the whole wedding party watched me struggle to get my foot out of the soft ground and then finally just kick the damn things off of me.
I knew the shoes I purchased wouldn’t work for the big day unless I basically tiptoed my way to the alter. I went to bed not having a clue what I was going to do, but I was too tired to care. It would work itself out in the end, even if I had to walk barefoot.
I had a pair of aqua blue wedges that I thought might be a good option, so the next day I tried them on. They were really uncomfortable. I didn't want to wear them.
My friend/bridesmaid brought me some options from her closet. I can't remember what any of them looked like except the pair I went with.
The one's I chose were hideous. I think I picked them because they seemed comfy. They were white, beat up sandals with a slight inclined heel. Fortunately my dress covered them most of the wedding. From time to time they would peek through my dress when I was walking around. I prayed everyone was too busy staring at my giant, pregnant boobs to notice my feet though.
I have only one photo of the shoes I wore because there's no way in hell I wanted to remember them for any reason. I put on the shoes I was initially going to wear right before we took portraits and the photographer snapped a shot as my friend was helping me out.
You can't tell how awful they are from the picture, and I considered taking an up close shot since they're still sitting in my shoe ottoman (go figure, she didn't want them back) but I decided against that.
I was comfortable though and probably would have just tripped and fallen over in the cutesy pink shoes anyway.
So what did your wedding shoes look like? Did you love them or not?
