"I also made wedding keds. I took regular Keds, died them in tea to match my dress, then used satin ribbon for the laces and glued pearls along the seams."

That is a really great idea. I think I might have to do that for my wedding.

Everybody's complaining about their feet, but am I the only person (besides *MAR*) who is wearing flats to their wedding? Geeze! I found a billion that would go great with my dress, the ones that would go perfectly for only 15, so I bought them now. I'd rather have flats than heels/Keds anyday! But that's just me... heehee.


I'm SOOOOOO bookmarking this topic. I'm going to need this BADLY. And what a greta use for my big hat box laying in the closet collecting dust.

HGFlower - that turned out great!  I know that everyone will surely appreciate it on the Big Day....you have that baby stocked for almost any possible "disaster" that could happen!  Plus, the box is super-cute, too! Cheesy

thanks for the compliment Smiley l hope that l got most of our bases covered.
as for the shoes, my friend has to get flats cause her fiance is a bit on the short side (or she's on the tall side..) so she just bought some plain ballet flats that are going to be dyed to match her dress. plain and simple Smiley honestly l'd rather have the flats and be comfortable than super high heels. but! it's not my wedding Smiley

Yeah, I'm having a black satin sash around my dress, so I bought black satin ballet flats. Yes, part of it WAS because I'm 5'11" and he's 5'6", but other than that... COMFORT! haha

Hey all!

I'm DEFINITELY on the flats/keds/comfy shoes bandwagon too... no need for heels IMHO!

However, if you do get stuck wearing uncomfy blister inducing shoes, my friend works at a store that sells these little sticks that look like deodorant (but small) and they coat your feet where the shoes rub against them and prevent blisters! The stuff absorbs into your feet but leaves a protective/smooth moving layer so it doesnt rub.

Hope that helps someone out!

A friend made me a box like this for our wedding, it had all of the components mentioned plus some M & M's, a cold diet coke, aspirin, extra cufflinks( for the groomsmen) saftey pins and a tiny bottle of gin.  All very useful!
