Wedding Planning- The Shoe Saga

I am a shoe person.

At one point I was considering paying more for my wedding shoes than I paid for my wedding dress.

I would rather have shoes than clothes.

Although then I have to deal with the fact that I can’t go around naked.

Let me restate that.

I love to buy shoes more than I love to buy clothes.

That’s better.

Anyway I had four stipulations for wedding shoes.

  • Sling-back
  • Wedge heel
  • Not white.
  • Under $200.

I looked everywhere! And I mean everywhere.

I finally settled on Michael Kors Vivian Slingback Heels in Nude from for $195.

$195, Michael Kors Vivian Heels

And then I embellished them with these pearl bow clips from store, Gracefully Girly.

$28, Gracefully Girly bow clips

I was so pleased with how they turned out.

Stream-lined and classy.

Then I had buyer’s remorse that I had spent over $200 on shoes once I added in the $28 bows.

So for the last three weeks I have been in search for a look-alike shoes or at least a decent coupon code for the shoes I had already purchased but to no avail.

I had decided to give up.

I only had four more days before I could return them for a refund anyway.

Drumroll, please…

Last night I ran into Belks to make a quick return. Literally, ran. It was raining cats and dogs. (that is such a strange saying)

I rushed through the shoe department as my usual practice, just to glance at the clearance shoes.

And there they were.

My wedding shoes.

The same ones I had ordered from for $195.

Size 6 1/2

Color: Nude


And that, people, is why I love to shop.

The end.

Wedding Shoes

I have my wedding dress design all done, and my first fitting is on Friday! Pinch myself. I can’t believe it’s happening. Anyway I have been on the hunt for wedding shoes that are comfortable but yet look stylish enough to wear on my wedding day. Yay!

Here are some of my favorites from my hunt so far., with some added some shoe clips
