I have to admit that I’m definitely going to be a two-shoe bride. Yes, the girl who can’t find one pair of shoes she likes wants to have two pairs of shoes for the big day.
I’d like a pair of blue heels to wear for the ceremony and for the pictures. But, we’re going to be at our reception for hours, and I’m just not sure I can handle wearing heels for that long. I have been known to kick off my shoes and just go around barefoot in some situations. Because we’re going to be inside for 90% of the day, I think it would just make more sense to have a pair of flats to change into.
I will also admit, I’d like another pair, mainly because I fell in love with a pair of shoes.

OK, I don’t think it was this exact shoe, but it’s pretty darn close. The rose gold sequins are absolutely to die for. I love the softness of it all and the sparkliness of it; it just completely caught my eye one day while shopping for the elusive blue heels.
At the time, when I saw these shoes, I was still determined to be a one-shoe bride, so I walked away from the shoes, sadly. But I realized I could not stop thinking about those shoes and how absolutely gorgeous they were. Once I justified the shoes to myself, I went to go find the shoes, and guess what? I could not find those shoes anywhere. Everywhere, the shoe had been discontinued. I cannot believe that if I had just made up my mind a few months earlier, I would have my dream shoes.
So I did what every crazy DIY bride does—I made my own. Yeah, they’re not made with sequins, but I think they look pretty darn good.
I spent a really long time at the craft store trying to determine the difference between bronze and rose quartz.
It is *really* hard to tell the difference.
Ultimately, I thought the rose quartz had a little more of a pinkish tone to it, so I went with that.
I don’t really think this needs a tutorial, but here you go.
Yay, shiny shoes. I was planning on going back over with another layer of Mod Podge, but I’m finding that I really don’t need it at all. I don’t think the glitter is going anywhere.
I really love the color. I love how it changes colors depending on the lighting. It seems to go between a pretty pink and a gold color, and slightly quenches my thirst for some rose gold in my life. I think they’ll be a lot more comfortable than heels for the reception for my tired feet.
I can’t help but think something’s missing, though. Bow? Flower clip? Brooch? Should I just leave them as is?
