Yes, they are beautiful.
Yes, they photograph beautifully.
Yes, they hurt soooo much.
Yes, I’d probably do it again.
In a nutshell, I probably shouldn’t have worn my wedding shoes, but they were just so beautiful that couldn’t not wear them. The last time I wore white shoes I wore ruffle socks with them, but this time white shoes with just the right amount of bling felt so right. By the end of the mass I was almost in tears from how painful my shoes were, but I would probably do it again.
If you’re getting married soon and your shoes look painful, they probably will be painful as heck so plan accordingly. I changed into a different pair after the ceremony and again a few hours later (into flip flops). Here’s an iPhone photo of my wedding shoes that now are sitting pretty in a box and my feet want nothing to do with them.
