Two shoes, blue shoes...

No, this is not a new Dr. Suess rhyme; it is the solution to my wedding shoe dilemma! I'm not going to repost everything. So here is the short version: I've decided to be a two shoe bride, and possibly a three shoe bride. I will wear what I call a "Cinderella" shoe during the ceremony. This is the shoe my mom loves, and the heel is a little higher than the shoe I love. This is important because my wedding is outside and I won't let anyone hem my dress, so the higher heel will help keep the dress off the ground while outside, and my mom is happy because she won't be worried about people staring at my feet during the ceremony. Oh, yes, did I tell you that? She is seriously paranoid that if I wear blue shoes during the ceremony everyone will be looking at my feet instead of at me and my fh! The blue shoes have a lower heel and are much more comfortable, so I will wear them during the reception. I love these shoes! I had them dyed to match my bm dresses, and my bm's will be wearing silver shoes. I am also considering buying flip flops or slippers to keep under the table "just in case". So here are the shoes... what do you
think?

I personally get sooo frustrated when people say 'just go with what makes YOU happy' so here goes... While I LOVE the ankle detail on the blue shoe and the fact it's more comfy (so important), the strap on the front seems thin and shows too much toe. That's probably just me, though. Both are really pretty. I'm leaning toward the non-blue but I'd have to see it with the dress to make a final call.

I had a friend who compromised on her wedding dress to make her mother happy and ended up regretting it. Mom's are important, but so is being happy on your wedding day.
Wear the blue, they're very pretty and a little unusual, which is brilliant.
Unless you wear a plastic pair of giant troll feet no one is going to pay that much attention to your feet anyway.

If you like the blue, go with the blue. I had red satin shoes for my wedding.
