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?

    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
