I am looking for a great pair of wedding shoes and have had no luck, any suggestions?

Guess there's not a big demand for wedding shoes, eh? How about wedding boots? If you get the steel-toed safety boots, then you could avoid injury should a steel beam crash down on the festivities. (Always a good idea to be prepared, you know.) Of course, the handsome groom should invest in a hard hat, as well. It could come in handy for that same steel beam crashing down on the wedding or, worse, a rolling pin at a later date.

Best regards from witty Long Island.

Holy motherload of wedding shoe links Batman!

Here is my tip for those on a budget shopping in Manhattan: the more crap in the store, the cheaper it is. If their shelves are overflowing, walk right in and shop with impunity. The less stuff they have, the more expensive each thing is. And if you can count on your fingers the number items you see for sale, don't even bother walking in unless you have at least a grand or more to drop on a single item.

Oh, and whatever you do, if you _do_ accidently wander into one the "limited item" stores, don't ever say the following when they tell you something costs $800: "$800?!?!? I can get the same exact thing on Canal street for $20!!!" They will give the stare of death. Just say, "mmm, OK, I'll like think about it or something" and walk out and THEN say "$800?!?!? I can get the same exact thing on Canal street for $20!!!"

Board full of dudes, huh?

I would strongly advise two pairs of shoes: cute heels to walk down the aisle in, and comfy slippers to dance in. You'll be on your feet for six hours straight, so changing shoes is pretty essential. But I would also advise not spending a fortune on shoes you'll never wear again.

I wore Nine West gold strappy sandals to walk down the aisle (got married in summer) and then, don't laugh, a pair of $25 gold Daniel Green house slippers under my floor-length dress for dancing. They were great.

both from www.nordstrom.com, which will ship you several pairs of shoes to try on in the privacy of your own home, and you ship back the ones you don't want, and only pay for the ones you keep.

Also, if you want to find shoes that are white and want to dye them, B. Nelson in Rockefeller Center is pretty trustworthy.

Try and get the shoes early enough that you can practice your first dance in them.

good luck, bride!

Try DSW shoe warehouse and Century 21. Finding white shoes isn't going to be easy.

My suggestion:

They're comfortable, you can wear them after the wedding & on the honeymoon, and they cost about $30.00. No one is going to see your feet except you and your husband.

To be fair a wedding is/should be a day that is really special. Since anything to do with weddings automatically equals more money anyway I think any bride-to-be can be let off buying shoes for a little more than $20.

If you can afford it- Jimmy Choo. They have a great bridal selection.

I think there are two in NY. We went to the one in between 5th and Madison.... I think there is one on Madison too.

Depends on your budget, but defs class as 'awesome wedding shoes'.

Also try:
Saks
Macy's
Bloomingdales
etc.... just go to the shoes department.

I would say it was worth going somwhere and get shoes that fit your feet before your budget. Whats the point spending loads on a party on the wedding night if you can't stand up becuase your shoes are killing your feet.

Even if you cannot afford them, note down the size and style and look on Ebay or something to find them cheaper. This way you get the best of both worlds.
