    Bride shoes for shorter dress at farm venue - help!

     

    Hi,

    If anyone could help me choose my shoes I'd really appreciate it - my first fitting is in a week and I'm stressing! I'm wearing this dress in ballerina length: http://louloubridal.co.uk/collections/lb197/ 

    I'm tall so heel has to be max 6cm. I'd prefer a block heel in theory but I think a skinny heel looks nicer... I have problems with my long skinny feet and need a strap - all of this has really limited my options. The ceremony is at a church, but the reception is on a farm - the areas outside are mostly paved/decked but I'm anxious about the car park being muddy and areas around the farm where we might have photographs taken. This makes me worry about wearing satin (even though I love some Rainbow Club ones, and leather ones are soooo much more expensive!!) I've thought about possibly changing into wellies for the muddier bits? 

    Here are some options I've found:
    - Rachel Simpson Isla in Mint (I like this as the colour makes it more wearable afterwards, but bridal party are wearing pale blue dresses and ties? Groom in a pale pink tie) https://rachelsimpsonshoes.co.uk/collections/low-heel/products/isla-mint
    - Or the same in Ivory: https://rachelsimpsonshoes.co.uk/collections/low-heel/products/isla-ivory-white-shoes
    - Rachel Simpson Chloe Gold (probably the most practical option, but less me as they're quite glam):

    - Rainbow Club Harlow (just the satin issue really. Thought about dying pale pink) https://www.rainbowclub.co.uk/harlow-peep-toe-satin-shoe
    - Rainbow Club Estelle (Less worry about getting them dirty, but maybe too glam): https://www.rainbowclub.co.uk/estelle-gold-metallic-t-bar-sandal-shoes
    - Joe Brown Sunny Sunday (Most affordable and practical option, but are they 'special/bridal' enough? https://www.joebrowns.co.uk/sp+sunny-sunday-shoes+kc057?coloursel=A
    - Charlotte Mills Cece Blue https://charlottemills.com/products/cece-blue (These are ridiculously expensive but would go very well. Again I have concerns about the sparkly heel getting dirty and ruined? I was also thinking of wearing a satin bow birdcage veil so it might be bow overload? - The back of the dress also has a bow - I love bows!) 

    Sorry for the long list!

    Thank you :-)

    Hey, 

    I LOVE  the Joe Brown Sunny Sunday shoes, they are so cute, very in keeping with the style of your dress, easy to clean and how reasonable!! You could probably wear these again!

    I also love the Isla Mint ones, for pretty much the same reasons. I don't think it matters that they are mint green, in fact that's one of the reasons I like them! 

    Between those 2 for me, with the Joe Browns slightly edging it. Also, the Joe Browns have a chunkier heel, which would probably be useful for walking around a farm? 

    Hope this helps! X
