I am fully on board the colored-shoes-for-brides bandwagon. I might be even steering that train. (I have no idea what that means either.) Now I am on the hunt for the perfect pair of fun colored shoes. Unfortunately I have a couple of obstacles on my hunt. First off, my wedding colors aren’t fun-shoe colors. As a refresher the wedding colors are navy, gray, khaki, white, and a splash of orange. Shockingly, orange shoes are not so popular on Zappos.
My other problem is I really want to wear heels. But we are getting married in the grass, and I am only a couple inches shorter than Mr. Cucumber Sammie. I am sure I can find cute flats, but I spend every day in flats. High heels make me feel more dressed up. As an added bonus, I think they make my posture better. I know this is going to sound like the worst reason in the world, but I also really want pictures like this:

I started my shoe search at Zappos in the flats section. I found a couple that were contenders, but they don’t make my heart soar like those gorgeous shoes above.

After trudging around in the flats section, I decided to just take a peek at the heels to see if there was anything I liked. I checked the box for under-two-inch heels in hopes that will keep me sufficiently shorter than Mr. Cucumber Sammie. Thanks to Zappos’ amazing return policy, I might have to order some of these shoes just to try them on. In the name of research, of course.

After seeing them all together like this, it is obvious that I have a type: navy peep-toe. My favorites are the Calvin Klein flats, the Caparros Olinda, and the Vaneli Madora. I will probably just order all three and see which ones I like best. Who knows? I might become a three-shoe bride!
Where did you find your shoes? Did you include anything in your wedding just because of the pretty pictures?
