Inspiration for your road to the altar

Wedding Shoes

September 9, 2013


I went the traditional route with my own wedding shoes, thinking that I would dye them after the wedding so I could wear them again (which never happened).  So while I still love a white wedding shoe I sometimes wonder if it wouldn’t have been more fun to go with something colorful, that I would have been more likely to wear for years to come.  I need a lower heel, so the green Nina Culver shoes would have worked out perfectly!  But if you can rock a higher heel, those Badgley Mishka’s are amazing…and they would be your something blue!  All the shoes pictured here are under $150 with the exception of the Badgleys, which are just a smidge over at $159 on sale.

And if you’re searching for wedding shoes at a great price, you can find every style and color imaginable at!  *This post is partially sponsored by but all opinions and copy are my own*

How cute are these chalkboard style pennant banners?  The adorable team at is offering them up as a free download on their blog.  Just print, punch holes where they are marked for you on the template, and string them on some ribbon or twine!  Once they offered up the download they realized that from the words “Just Married” you can also spell out “Mr. & Mrs” so they included an ampersand as well – love it.
