Okay ladies - after weeks of searching and being sorely disappointed in the selection of low shoes out there for tall brides, I''ve found some winners. Now - help me choose! Keeping in mind that these pictures are not color correct, so I''d have to wait until my swatch comes in...

We''ll start with the highest of the heels and work our way down. With this 2.5" heel I''d be only slightly shorter than B.

The next heel... this might be hard to walk in - I struggle with kitten heels. So it''s kind of got a mark against it already... but what are your thoughts?

I''m hoping they get more of this in stock. Currently out of my size - but I''ve got about 5 months to see if they get it in stock before I HAVE to order!

I think this one ties the dress to the shoe well... thoughts?

Simple, yet elegant (the "theme" of our wedding... if you will)

#4 by a mile... the bling on the toe really ties into the romantic feel of the color and bling on your dress.

ETA: I think the other thing I really like, is that the sheen matches the dress.

Mom is concerned that the flower will catch on the dress and not allow it to float... BM''s think the flower is too "cute"... thoughts?

Okay... last but not least. This is the first shoe that made the cut...

#1 and #5. I like how they both echo the twist at the bust of the gown. Gorgeous gown, by the way!

My first choice is 5 because the twist of the folds in the shoe go with the twist in the bust of your gown. My second choice would be 4 because of the glam aspect. I tend to go for more understated shoes when it comes to the embellishments so that is probably effecting my choices.

I LOVE the flower one but I think the sling back is too casual for your gown and your wedding.

Would you mind sharing who makes all these pretty shoes you posted? I can tell for some of them but others I am not sure. I really like quite a few pairs of the ones you posted. My FI is shorter than I am so I am always on the look-out for nice flats.

#''s 1 and 4. #1 because those almost became my wedding shoes because they''re pretty and really comfy, but FI hated the bows
. And I just like #4. I think it looks lovely next to the dress.

I love #1!

EDIT: after this, on looking back i also like #5 very much, but i think i like the heel on #1 better b/c it's fabric covered rather than wood....

My mom just got the Nina ones (#1) in gold to wear to my wedding! She said they''re really comfortable. She also got them in black to wear to someone else''s wedding later this summer (that''s how much she liked them!).

I prefer #4...
Are you trying to match the shoes to your dress? That could be really tricky!

I prefer these two:






I''m not a fan of bedazzled shoes, but that''s a personal thing.

#4 definitely stood out the crowd for me. It just seem to stand out and ties in everything together, be it the bling, color, sheen and etc. Ignoring the color part, I also like #1 & #7 for it''s subtle elegance and #5 for it''s simplicity.
