So......... I'm getting married in August. The biggest question everyone asks me is, "what shoes are you wearing?" For a long time it was a huge: I HAVE NO IDEA!

Sprinkles?
Monopoly Money?
Harry Potter?
Oatmeal!?

I really had no idea what I wanted to incorporate through footwear. So I thought and thought and thought and thought and finally decided that I want something simple(er), classy, yet still bold. And I want to wear them to dinner on our honeymoon cruise.

Enjoy!



This blue is my absolute favourite color. It's also the theme of our wedding. I wouldn't exactly say these shoes are my 'something blue', as half of my outfit is this color haha



I snagged these super comfy 3 inchers at DSW for $40 Cheesy



I love bows.




The only downfall to these is that the satin ribbon is so silky, I'm going to need to put heel grips inside so I don't reenact Cinderella walking down the stairs haha

Oh they're beautiful!! I'm trying to find different ideas for blue shoes myself since I do want them to be my "something blue" under my dress. LOL

Did you glue the ribbons on? And is each piece one cut strand or did you just use longer, continuous pieces of ribbon? Last question - do you know the approximate number of rhinestones you used for the heels? I'm debating on glitter versus rhinestone currently but these are lovely!

Each ribbon is individually measured, cut, sealed to prevent fraying, and then adhered with industrial strength adhesive. In the final pair, there are over 1,000 crystals on the heels. This pair took me over 10 hours to complete Smiley

Glitter is less time consuming, and significantly less expensive. I don't have the patience to clean it up though. I also used to work for Swarovski so I had to incorporate them into my wedding somehow too. =P

These are a beautiful concept.  I would love to borrow your idea and adapt it to a scratch shoe if I can figure out a way to make it work.  These have an entire story in the design.  They really call out.  Incredible doesn't even come close to describing what these shoes are.

The title is so apt - OMG! The shoes look so classy and unique, and it's a gorgeous blue instead of the boring white - will be filing this away for my own wedding!  Smiley
