Ah, one of the biggest things talked about- shoes. And not just ANY shoes, your wedding day shoes. Wedding day shoes are a big deal now. It’s almost old-fashioned to go with white shoes that would normally be dubbed as “wedding shoes”. I say go for whatever you want. There are no rules for choosing your wedding day shoes. My favorite wedding shoes are unique and colorful, but that’s just me. I myself had boring brown shoes for my wedding day that were half a size too small because I was desperate to find shoes that didn’t make me taller than my 5’8 husband. I don’t recommend that (both half a size too small and taller than your husband). Oh, and my mom made me feel like it wasn’t okay to have colored shoes under my wedding dress. It IS okay. It’s fabulous. :)
In fact, here’s what I do recommend: choose a pair of shoes that you already love. That you already wear. You already know that they’re comfortable. If you want to spruce them up, get a pair of shoe clips or bling them out.

If you do end up buying a new pair (because let’s face it, we all want an excuse to buy new shoes): Wear them. Everywhere. Not just around your house for 2 days. All the time. Because I wore mine around my house for 2 days, and by the end of my wedding I was glued to a chair because I couldn’t stand up my feet hurt so bad.
So in a nutshell: do whatever you want for your wedding shoes, but wear them and make sure they’re *actually* comfortable! Any other advice some of you have? Experiences? What worked or what didn’t work?
