I’ve chosen to wear colored shoes on my wedding day. Instead of traditional white, my shoes will be blue. I love the little hint of color peeking out from under my dress when I walk, the richness of my shoes in their aqua shade (the color shows up sort of green and dark in this pic. Its from my mom’s cell phone, so apologies for that), and the fact that they can serve as my “something blue.”
That said, I’ve noticed that folks have a pretty severe reaction when I mention that my wedding day shoes will be blue. I showed the shoes to my super-styley hair & makeup artist (who is also my brother-in-law’s sister, if you can follow that), and she literally squealed with delight. At the other end of the spectrum, when I told my own sister about the shoes (a lover of all things cream, beige or tan), she was silent for so long I thought the phone went dead. When she finally spoke again, she muttered something to the effect of “Oookay, its your wedding I guess???”.
I’m assuming these reactions have all to do with folks’ personal sense of style…mine is colorful and quirky. My sister’s is classic and traditional. But I do wonder about the general consensus.
What do you guys think? Would you wear colored shoe’s on your wedding day or go white all the way? Or do you have something completely different in mind alltogether (perhaps you’ll be barefoot on the beach, wearing rain galoshes, or sneakers under the dress?).
Incidentally, this is my last week at the office before the wedding (I took the week before off). I’m hoping I might fit SOME cooking in prior to the big day, so perhaps there will be one last pre-wedding post next week.
If not, I wish everyone well and look forward to reconnecting in April!
