Choosing My Accessories: Shoes

I have a confession to make: I bought my wedding shoes before I even got engaged. Growing up, I dreamed of wearing a Badgley Mischka wedding dress when I got married. Mark Badgley and James Mischka design flawless gowns; I love seeing their new designs each year on the red carpet! After glancing at their prices, however, I quickly realized there was no way I could ever afford them. Like, ever. Still, instead of giving up entirely, I decided to incorporate Badgley Mischka into my wedding day another way: shoes. As soon as I saw the Randee heel, it was love at first sight.

While the amount of shoes in my closet rivals Carrie Bradshaw, I unfortunately don’t have her budget. I spent months scouring different websites, trying to find Randee in my size, in white, on sale. One blessed day, Piperlime answered my prayers. I did a double take when I saw they were selling a pair of Randees for $50. Fifty. dollars. I placed the order faster than you can say, “Oh my God, shoes.” A week later, they arrived. I delicately took them out of their box and had Mr. Wellies help me put them on, like Cinderella. Seeing them on my feet, I started blubbering, “I have Badgley Mischkas!” Recalling my high-pitched shrieking when I first found them on sale, Mr. Wellies knew how momentous this occasion was.

Sadly, getting married in February means I will only wear my Randees indoors. The silver lining? I found boots I can wear outside:

Purple wellies! I was more than happy to splurge on these babies, because they suit my Weddingbee moniker perfectly. I’m so excited to include the ‘Bee this way!

Are you wearing more than one pair of shoes on your wedding day?

    Those shoes are beautiful and holy crap 50 dollars?!?! And those Wellies are perfect I think you should add the bow and flower just like your moniker!

    HAHA love the boots!!! perfect. I too had chosen Badgley Mischka shoes before I was engaged. I couldn’t find the shoes I wanted in my size, popular size 7.5 and under the right budget. I stumbled upon BM Lucie in ebay for $30 or so dollars. I had to bet on them and I won at $60ish. With shipping it was about $80 but I just wanted them and I won the battle!!! However, They were incredibly high and not very comfortable and impractical for the wedding locale, in the end, I ended using some $20 pair of shoes I found later. I plan on wearing the BMs’ during our special occasions though.

    @MissGoldFish: I know! I can’t wait to wear them! :D
    @veggie_rachel: *high fives* What style are you wearing?
    @jessc4343: Definitely one of the best videos ever! :)
    @Saramina329: I love Lucie! ;) I’m sorry the heels ended up being impractical for your wedding. I’m a little nervous about climbing stairs in mine!
    @Mrs. Waterfall: Probably, ha ha! I’m debating if I should wear tights or not. Still, we’ll only be outside for photos (weather permitting).

    ahhhh Those purple wellies are PERFECT! You should attach little pink and white bows to the sides to make them identical to your moniker.

    I love the wellies! Too cute!
    I’m also wearing a pair of badgley mischka’s I found before getting engaged! Although, I held off on buying them until after, which worked to my benefit because they were on sale everywhere!
    I can’t believe you got yours for $50! That’s awesome!
    I got the Anita and I sometimes take them out to stare lovingly at them. *sigh*

    I bought new cowboy boots days before bridal portraits, and decided to throw them into the mix. I’m debating wearing them for the ceremony now (aisle is grass) and then switching to heels for the reception.

    OMG – I litterally just squealed a little (thank goodness I work in an office alone or else i would have caused a scene.) . How Perfect are those wellies! I totally second putting the the matching bows on. Cant wait to see your recap photos from the day!!

    Even the Badgley Mischka are soo pretty. Snaps to you for being able to walk in those. I would be like a baby girafe learning to walk for the first time in them. :)

    @dancingriss: I think that’s a great compromise! :) If you wear heels all day, your feet may get tired more quickly.
    @steene222: I had a similar reaction to the wellies, ha ha! ;) While I’ll be able to walk in the heels, I might not be able to climb the stairs to our ceremony! :P
    @Samantha: I love them in blue! They’re definitely princess shoes. :)

    OMG! I can’t believe I hadn’t seen this post!

    I’m absolutely in love with your shoes! OMG, I dream of owning a paid or Badgley Mischka’s one day.

    But I have to say that the wellies are to die for! You need to add the bow and the flower from your icon! LOL
