My “Something Blue” Is…Shoes!

Since blue has been my favorite color for as long as I can remember, it was important to me that the color be incorporated within the wedding. With the color teal chosen as a main color for our peacock-themed wedding, integrated in everything from the save the dates to the invites to the bridesmaids’ dresses, I wanted to utilize teal/blue in another, not necessarily traditional way.

Everyone knows the old saying Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” so for my something blue, I decided that I wanted it to be my shoes! So of course the next logical step was to create a board just for shoes on Pinterest for inspiration. Can you guess which ones I ultimately decided on?

And the winner is…the glittery gold and teal Kate Spades (Corinne)! When I saw that shoe—that perfect shoe which encapsulated both my wedding colors so seamlessly—I just knew I had to have it. Initially in my search, I was pretty set on getting a shoe that was either three inches or three-and-a-half inches since I plan on dancing up a storm, however Corinne only comes in four inches, so I’ll just have to spend the next few months breaking her in.

What will your “something blue” be?

    @Almost Mrs.P: Ooh you’re right :/ They must have sold out so now they’re gone from the site (I bought mine about 4 months ago).

    My something blue will be my shoes, too! Luichiny Kissy Kiss in teal. They’re the exact same color as my BM dresses. I can’t wait to wear them!
