Waiting for the other shoe to drop...

I mean that in a hopeful way, not a sad way. I'm literally waiting for some shoes to drop out of the sky and land on my feet. As you know, I'm getting married in August and I've been busy looking for shoes, the dress (found it a long time ago), the perfect invitations, the list goes on and on. I've been absolutely loving the shoes though. Wedding shoes can be SO much fun and also very extravagant looking. While I'm mostly a ballet flats kind of girl lately (b/c I have 80 year old knees), I'm gearing up to wear some 3 inch heels on my (OUR) big day.

These, from Kate Spade are SO gorgeous. They are perfectly appropriate but with a little bit of bling on the heal. It's like a little surprise at the end--love it.

I'd prefer some color underneath my white dress. These would be perfect. Kate Spade.

Pom Poms? Don't mind if I do. I DO. These are from Anthropologie's Wedding line BHLDN. They have the most beautiful designs. Found via this amazing new blog!

I'm obsessed with these. The pattern on them is like mini confetti and with a huge pink flower to top it off, it's like a party on a shoe. Also BHLDN.

AND of course we need some sparkle. I love the tailored bow on the peep toe. BHLDN

I'm usually a low maintenance girl (don't laugh), but when these shoes are flashed in my face, I go a little bit crazy. I love how much fun you can have with a wedding shoe and I know that I def want some color on mine. Kate Spade also come out with a whole wedding line, much to my intense glee. It's literally the cutest place on the internet. Does anybody have any ideas for other places that sell fun wedding shoes? I mean OBVI Christian Louboutin, but this girl can't wear 4" heels. Thoughts?

the ones with the giant flower!! I think Kate Spade will be promising. Jimmy Choo also has a giant selection. Ferragamo might be a good option - they are narrow like your foot.

Alicia, thank you for the shout out for my blog. And I LOVE the BHLDN shoes with the flower on the toe. I can easily imagine those peeking out from under a wedding dress.
