Wedding Wednesday – It’s All About The Shoes


Happy Wednesday everyone! The weeks are literally FLYING by. I calculated how many weeks till the wedding the other day and was in complete shock when it said 17 weeks.

17 weeks

That doesn’t seem like that far away, does it? Things are being added to the “to-do” list as fast as they’re being checked off!

Every bride knows when it comes to a wedding, it’s all about the dress. And, it is. Once you find the dress the rest just falls into place. The rest of the decisions seem minor in comparison.

Then, the day comes when you have to decide on accessories and you realize that that can be a super fun.

When I first tried on my dress WAY back in the summer I wore beautiful 4 inch heels. Do I normally wear high heels? No! However, I did like the effect they had on me. I felt I was standing straighter, felt skinnier and overall more elegant. I knew that at least for the wedding and pictures that I would want a cute high heel to wear under my dress.

It was hard to choose something that appealed to me so I used my favorite search engine, Google, and wrote “yellow high heels”, keeping in the wedding colors.

I found a wonderful website called Nina Shoes. They had so many fun colors and choices but one option that appealed to me was the “Design Your Own” feature. I immediately went to work designing my perfect shoe and this is what I came up with….


I loved the bright color of the yellow and I added a navy blue knot matching perfectly with our color scheme. I am in LOVE with them and I can’t wait to wear them in May!

I know, they are gorgeous but let’s be honest here. I am NOT going to be wanting to wear these all night long. I plan on shakin’ my tail feather at my reception and I needed something to change into. That’s where I saw these on LOTS of wedding blogs recently.

Silver Toms

Sparkly Toms! I love the idea that the company will donate a pair of shoes for the ones that I have ordered and wear as I dance all night long! They look comfy while also looking cute! They are also a shoe that I can see myself wearing LOTS post wedding!

I am so excited about both pairs of my shoes! They are both exactly what I pictured when thinking about what I wanted. I never had to extensively think or search for the perfect shoes! It was like they found me! I love my shoes!

Happy Wednesday!



  1. Love the shoes...maybe I should get me a pair of sparkly they come in small sizes for your flowergirls?? LOL

  2. At my friend April's wedding, she wanted everyone to wear flipflops at the reception. I never took my heels off though... LOL :). At my wedding I ditched my shoes almost at the end and put my cowboy boots on :) But I agree about wearing heels with your wedding dress. It just fits! And those are gorgeous!

  3. Yep, sparkly TOMS will be the BEST for your wedding reception! SOOOO comfy and totally special enough for the big day :-)

  4. Love the yellow heals - a perfect match!!!

  5. I wore sparkle TOMs for the reception part! I absolutely loved them, and wear them SO MUCH now!!

    thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
