Wedding shoes: Take 2!

You may have read about my awesome wedding shoes, and my mostly-successful dye job of them.

Where we last left off, I was still in need of shoes for the wedding and had no idea what to do!  But, lucky me, I was able to get the SAME perfect Nina shoe (in ivory instead of bright white) in half a size larger than the original ones, for only $25 on Amazon Warehouse Deals!  They must have been a return or something, since they were listed as used but don't appear to have ever been worn, and had the original packaging.

And, lucky me, turns out the half size larger made all the difference in fit and comfort!

So fun and pretty.  And the cute little pink flannel bag to keep them safe once I throw away the box!  (If I ever do...)

But now I'm faced with another dilemma.  After I decided against the yellow Nina pumps, I almost bought these from David's Bridal, but they were sold out of my size online and in this part of the country... long wait time, long story...
But I really liked the vibrant pink color.  I would also love some pale pink wedding shoes, to go with the warm pale colors on my dress.  Like these pretty ones from BHLDN...

And I would also like something even paler, like these Badgley Mischkas...

So I guess I would like just about any pink.  Which is good because if I do dye them, I won't really have a whole lot of control over the color... again I will dye the bows first, then based on how long they take for the right color and if I like them, I'll dye the rest of the shoe.  If the bows look terrible I can always make something else to go on the toe of the shoe.

I love shoes, and I love weddings!  I guess that's why I'm having such a hard time deciding, and having so much fun thinking about the options!!

(If you did any DIYs for your wedding or the wedding of a friend or loved one, I'd love for you to share them in the Adventures in Dressmaking DIY Weddings Flickr group!!)


  1. Love these shoes, glad its all (hopefully) worked out! :)

  2. yay you managed to get another pair, they look lovely as they are but the pink shoes look lovely too maybe you should only dye the bows and leave the rest of the shoes ivory?

  3. The pink will be really lovely!
    Can't wait to see how they turn out after you dye them!

  4. The bright pink pair is my favorite! =)


  5. I love your wedding shoes. I have two pairs of those just for every day wear. One in blue and one in red and I can tell you that your feet will thank you for going with Nina. They are super comfortable for a heel. (I went with sparkly glitter shoes for my wedding shoes...)

  6. I think the 2nd photo with the warmer pink would photograph really well :) I love all of your details!
