Wedding Talk: Shoes!

Apparently, I talk more about the wedding now than I do about running.  Uh, ooops!  I did take a bunch of pictures on my run home on Tuesday, but of course, my computer at home is on the fritz, and I have no way to upload them at work.

Tonight, I have a 70 minute run scheduled, and I have a feeling I’ll be running on my own (ugh).  Tomorrow, I’m tempted to run home from work again…

But for now, back to wedding talk.  I’m telling you, I’m obsessed!  You’ve seen the dress, but I’m also excited about the shoes!  At first, I thought I was going to wear some old red sandals I had, then I saw these babies online, and couldn’t help myself:  they were perfect!

The lace dress, a mantilla veil, red roses bouquet, and these shoes.  Granted, no one really will see the shoes, but I might give them a peek here and there.

And I have to make sure they show up on pictures!  We have this awesome picture from our engagement shoot, that’s one of my favorites, a redo with our wedding attire might be in order, it could be our own before and after:

I know red shoes are far from traditional, but I never wear white shoes (unless they have zebra stripes, of course), so couldn’t imagine myself wearing them on my wedding day.

And yes, the 4″ heels are far from comfortable, but I don’t plan on wearing them all night — thankfully, tradition in Brazil is to give all the girls flipflops during the reception so they can dance the night away.  So I’ll be ditching these in favor of some comfy havaianas when it’s time to dance.

But right now?  I might love the shoes as much as the dress…

  1. I’d rather hear about shoes than running any day! LOVE the red roses. Stunning. You go, girl.

  2. I LOVE THEM!!

    ever since forever ive planned on wearing red shoes on my wedding day. im not even engaged and im thinking of the shoes.

    i love the before pic!

    • I’m the same way! It’s the new “in” thing now to wear colored shoes, but I could never see myself with white shoes… Plus, I’m known to throw on red shoes with a black dress or jeans, so why wouldn’t I do that when I’m wearing a white dress?

  3. I love that photo! You have such nice legs! 🙂

    I totally ditched my shoes too… and went barefoot! Muah ha ha 🙂 In this pic you can see how dirty my feet were (I am on the ground pretending to play the guitar).

    If you want to see more pics they are here. 🙂

    • Ha, thanks for the compliment on the legs — they’re much more attractive from the side than from the front, when the thunder thighs are in full effect!

      That picture is hilarious! And yep, I’m known for prancing around with dirty feet too… Amazing how much dirt gathers under your feet when you’re wearing flipflops!

      Thanks for the link to the pictures — I love you cake!

  7. I am curious to find out what blog system you have been utilizing?

    I’m experiencing some minor security problems with my latest site and I would
    like to find something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?
