Knot Tying 101; Or, How Wedding Planning Comes Along

...wherein I continue to chat about my wedding outfit n' stuffs...

Thanks to everyone for your comments on my last wedding post. I'm currently leaning towards hair half down with silk flower, but all remains to be seen, as I have about 10 more months to go!

When I saw these shoes, I knew I had to have them.
A friend of mine was married a couple years ago, and she had a pair of shoes dyed to a lovely blue.
Blue not being my colour, I thought red it must be.

I found these lovelies at Now, I need to decide if I want to wear them pre-wedding or not (I've heard a good suggestion re: breaking in the shoes, if only to scuff up the bottom and prevent embarrassing slip-sliding).


As for jewellery, I've had me a fantastic time surfing around etsy, and discovered Erica Bapst's shop. She had this pretty necklace listed, and I wanted earrings to match. No problem! she says, and in one night creates these prefect wee crystals for me.
I've tried them on with the dress and they match, though I do think I'd like the necklace to be a touch longer... I'm working on it!

And for the requisite "something blue", I've managed to obtain what I think may turn out to be the perfect hue o' polish for my toes.

No worries, my toes and shoes won't clash; the blue polish will me my wee secret.

Yarg, I have to dive into the photographer search... wish me luck - I've no idea what I want, should look for or even where to start!

What a great necklace! I think it (and the earrings) will fit in with the dress perfectly - and really suit you well. :)
I also like the shoes, great shade of red. :D

My something blue was polish as well. On my fingers and toes, as it happens, so I have zombie extremities in my (sadly few) photos. I loved it, though! Happy approaching wedding to you!

fantastic shoes. break 'em in by wearing them at home, so they still look new but you can master them like a pro. if your getting married on a slippery surface (like in a church) you can always sandpaper the bottom a little. :)

I wore red shoes at my wedding, too! They were totally hidden by my ballgown skirt, so the photographer was delighted when they started peaking out in pictures afterward. Red shoes are the bomb! And that is most definitely the right shade of blue: it's just lovely!

You have some fun tastes in fashion! That stuff will look great on you! If you need any other wedding decorations, jewelry, or essentials you can check this website out. It helped me a lot with my wedding. Enjoy!

Great idea on the blue toe nail polish. I am getting married next year and have to say I will be painting my toe nails blue. Thanks! I just checked that off my list.

Gorgeous! A friend of mine wore red shoes and a red lace shawl over her dress and the pics were stunning! Love the red - and don't forget, it symolizes love & passion and all that, so it's very appropriate.

You'll be lovely no matter who takes the pics. Have fun, Thea

PS - do break 'em in. Even if you just smush 'em around on the sidewalk a little.
