It's been a while since I did a shoe post for mah ladies who wear larger-sized shoes (did you know we have an entire archive?), so those of us who are over a size 10, let's gather around the screen and enjoy some sweet-ass bridal footwear that actually fits your sweet-ass feet. Most of these are from Barefoot Tess, and most of them are available up to a size 15.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of flats posts.
You guys should know by now that I totally don't buy into the "am I offbeat enough?" line of thought. If you're even glancing at a website that features poly weddings, nerd weddings, and genderqueer weddings, then yes: you're offbeat enough. Stop worrying about it. Let's not get into offbeater-than-thou.
In that spirit, let's take a look at some white wedding shoes. Sometimes, among us offbeat types, white wedding shoes can be left behind, deemed as "too traditional" (whatever that means). Well my friends, these white shoes are about to make you question everything you know about anything being "too traditional."
Now, I'm not sure how many of you would ever wear ankle boots on your wedding days, but I'm inspired to collect a few of my favorites here for you. Blame the Italians for this perhaps only slightly-wedding-related shoe post!
We know that your Offbeat Brides love them some wedding shoe porn! Every week Ariel highlights a curated collection of wedding shoe choices. This week we're featuring something special: Our sponsor Ashbury Skies is an online shoes store that happens to have an exclusive collection of shoes by Jeffrey Campbell.
We've got an archive of gold wedding dresses, and y'all KNOW I've featured a million sparkly shoes, but can it possibly be that I've never done a round-up of gold shoes? My word. I think it's possible. Let's rectify this. I've got pumps and flats, sandals and boots, and even a few ridiculous couture options that probably very few of us can afford (but all of us can gawk at!). So if you're ready to make your shit sparkle, let's proceed…
This may be one of the weirder themed shoe round-ups that I've ever done. I'm not sure, even among those of you who are walking way WAY off the beaten aisle, that you want to wear shoes with faces on them. We've got animal faces, people faces, pieces of faces (eyes, mouths, mustaches), and even some random eyeballs.
Basically, these are shoes that look back at you.
Ok, first let's be clear about what I'm talking about here: I don't mean lacy wedding shoes (although these are cute too!), but rather wedding shoes that actually lace up. Ooh, and I even found a Random Bonus Shoe that's not all that random (and would be perfect for a laced-up destination wedding). So let's get out our laces and start tying this up…
This certainly isn't my first day stomping down the glittering, campy road of sparkly-ass wedding shoes. Sequins! Rhinestones! Glitter! I've been down this path before.
Today, however, it's not just about sky-high sparkly drag queen shoes. (Although yes, I have included a pair from RuPaul's shoe line.) Today, in addition to my usual heels and pumps, I'm making a point to include a ton of glittering oxfords and boots for the dapper-footed among us. Because who says the femmes and drag queens should have all the mirror-ball fun?!
Halloween is exactly five months from today, and I know for a fact that a cluster of you are busy planning your fabulously creepy Halloween weddings as we speak. While this is a post full of shoes that would obviously be a perfect fit for those of you planning Halloween weddings or gothtastic celebrations, I know for a fact that Offbeat Brides have rocked skull shoes at weddings that were totally NOT thematically dark.
It's been almost exactly a year since I last did a shoe post about Seychelles Shoes, everyone's favorite solidly-heeled, 40s-styled pumps and sandals. Offbeat Brides love the ankle straps, the walkable heels, and the dance-friendly sturdiness of many of Seychelles styles. Let's take a look at some of their new styles! I'm including a ton of flats as well, so never ye fear!
