We all know I loves me some Modcloth, but today I want to poke around in ShopRuche.com's collection of shoes.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of Wedding Shoes posts.
We love dorking out on loud, bold, colorful wedding shoes. Because we don't think your shoe options should be limited to white heels.
I know that for most of us in the Northern Hemisphere, we're firmly into boots season — but for couples planning tropical destination weddings this winter, it's totally time to start thinking about sandals. So today's shoe post might feel a little off-season for some of us, but for those of you dreaming of warm days in far-off places, this post is for you.
While lots of us love the way heels look, almost all of us love the way flats make your feet FEEL. That in mind, I'm rounding up 37 pairs of my favorite flats for y'all today. These range from the ridiculous (bunnies! robots! seashells!) to the more classical (bows! little straps!) to the truly out-there (cosmic stars! BAM POW comic references).
Sure fine — it's Halloween today, so it's extra seasonally appropriate to share orange wedding shoes. But let's be clear on this: orange wedding shoes are for any day, and every day. Our own Megan wore orange shoes at her beach wedding, so I know for fact that they look awesome on everyone from autumnal brides looking to match the leaves, to destination brides looking to match the sunset. I've included lots of flats here, as well. Let's dive in…
without a doubt, the most popular shoe of all time ever and ever is T.U.K.'s peacock pump. It's aff-$44-able and cute, and while I don't see quite as many peacock features at weddings as I used to, small peacock details are still making weddings everywhere more beautiful… and these shoes are a great nod.
But what of T.U.K.'s other shoes?
You know I like to do special needs shoe posts now and then… larger shoes, smaller shoes, wide shoes, shoes for folks with disabilities, wide calf boots, etc. But one special kind of foot-need I've never done is NARROW shoes. This is not a special foot-need I have any personal experience with, so apologies in advance if I screw this one up. I'm doing my best here… finding fabulous and funky-ass footwear available down to width 4A.
True story: when I was a sophomore in high school, I covered a pair of PayLess pumps in emerald green glitter-glue, and then stapled huge enormous white-wired ribbons on to the fronts. These shoes were WAY over the top for Bainbridge High School's prom in 1992, but I was super into the look, and still am. So today, I'mma wrastle up some wedding shoes with bows.
Y'all know I loved striped wedding dresses… but what about striped shoes? Today, I am here with a boat-load full of striped wedding shoes. I've got a range, from black and white Tim Burton-esque whimsical, to more nautical styles, to rainbow tiger stripes (!?). For those of you who love flats, I've got a random bonus shoe for you…
My personal motto is "Chronically fabulous," since I honestly truly believe that my disabilities can't prevent me from being as fabulous as I can — in fact, they just add to it. They are part of me, and frankly those medical devices make my life a lot better.
Every time I do a shoe post catered to a specific foot-need, there are howls from the internet about how I've ignored THEIR special foot needs. This has happened so many times for so many years that the editors and I now have a joke about how long it will take for the first "validate my feet" comment to show up on some of my shoe posts. Well, for those of you seeking validation for larger-sized feet, TODAY IS YOUR DAY!
