Summer has officially kicked off and with it- all of the wonderful weddings we will all be planning, attending or being a part of over the next few months.

Dresses have been bought (but if you don’t have one yet- check out all the listings for a budget friendly frock here, including this breathtaking Vera Wang!


Most ladies – Brides, maids, mothers and guests alike – are all trying to find the perfect accessory to go with their gowns: a comfortable but stylish shoe.

We all know that a broken-in shoe is far more comfortable than a brand new shoe, but we’re often wary of wearing used soles.

Ladies – these shoes have probably been tried on in store for almost as much time as the bride wore them on her wedding day, so save some money and buy a once-worn pair! Or, take a look at the many brand new shoes that were purchased and never worn (we love to buy something ahead of time and then fall in love with something different again later – we’ve all been guilty of this at least once!)

Looking for something classic and white to match your dress? Here are some pairs of elegant white sandals perfect for any summer wedding! Have you seen these beautiful shoes, by designer Something Blue?  Or what about these white satin beauties, dyeable to match your wedding colors? And last but not least, these elegant sandals with a little extra bling to sparkle under your dress?

Daring to be different? How about these red stunners or having your shoe be your something blue?

Need some glitz and glamour? Add some sparkle with these gorgeous heels!

If you or your bridesmaids decide to wear heels and plan to take photos outside, don’t forget to buy these fabulous heel savers. They’ll be undetected in photos and your girls will thank you for not ruining their brand new shoes!

Thinking about sticking with flats or bringing some to change into later in the evening? You’ll be on your feet all day and dancing the night away, so give your gams a rest with these adorable flats (but prepare for the envy of many not quite so wise!). There’s also a selection of silver flats or if colored flats are more your style, check out these blue lace beauties.

So if the shoe fits, girls- buy it! Save big and give those pumps, sandals and flats a second chance to shine and be loved. No one will know they’re new-to-you and your feet will thank you for spending your day in shoes that have already been broken in!

And in the end, more shoes for you. Sounds like a win to me!!

Happy planning!
