Anyone wearing unique shoes on wedding day?!?!

Hi ladies,
I've been thinking of wearing something a little different on my feet on my wedding day. I know some people wear flip flops....some wear slippers....others wear gorgeous heels or dress shoes! My dress is a typical ball gown style dress and all the accessories will be very elegant. However....I want to wear purple chuck Taylor's (converse) shoes!!!! My main color in the wedding is purple and my FH is wearing black chuck Taylor's at the reception. I thought it would be cute if I wore purple ones. Well.......all until I mentioned it to my sister...and she thinks it's a dumb idea :-( She kinda made me feel stupid for wanting to wear those.

Any of you have any unique shoes you are wearing on your wedding day??? I would love opinions!!!

Thanks!!!!!

That is NOT a dumb (UGH, do not like that word when planning anything) idea AT ALL and here a few pics just so you can see other brides wearing sneakers on their BIG DAY! I say if you want to wear them to incorporate that into your wedding (which I LOVE by the way) and it would also make for really cute pics with you DH wearing the same ones.

Here is a bride and groom wearing the same matching sneakers (not purple, but to give you an idea)

I love what the last pic website says about brides wearing sneakers:


When it comes to cool wedding trends, fellas typically get the short end of the stick – not this time. Ladies and gentlemen, we bring you Converse Chuck Taylors. These babies can be sported by both the guys and the gals in the bridal party, and at around $45 a pair, they’d make a great bridesmaid or groomsman gift. Not to mention they add a playfully quirky touch (in the best way possible) to even the most serious wedding. See our picks after the jump.


 


HTH!!!

Definitely not a "dumb" idea! I was planning on wearing purple DC sneakers for the reception, but ended up wearing my comfy Ariat Probaby cowboy boots all day. Yep, I wore boots! Some people thought that was a little odd, but I love my boots, and it was totally me. :)

It seems like your sister and you have really different ideas (I would know, b/c my sister and I are the same way about weddig things!) So what I've learned is to just listen to her and have it go in one ear and out the other. Seriously. It is YOUR wedding! Too bad our sister's are so opinionated on OUR weddings lol. Plus, converse are AWESOME!!!

That is not DUMB! Someone always has something negative to say for the bride's special day!  I am wearing a pair of heels that my FI got me for the ceremony, but they are coming off during the reception.  I plan on getting some keds.  I am a dancer and I plan on burning the floor up all night long and I can't do that in four inch stilettos.


Girl get your purple shoes and rock them! Can't wait to see pictures!

LOVE the idea of purple converse. Especially if your guy is wearing converse too, it'll look so cute in pictures!

It's not a dumb idea it's just a preference of style. You and your sister have two different styles and ideas on shoes. I say do you if that's what you want to do by all means do it. It just sounds like a lot of fun!!!

First of all...It's your wedding day... AND It's not dumb at all! I wore heels for the ceremony (30 minutes) and then wore purple converse! My hubby wore purple converse too! Everyone loved the idea and it was fun. We had ours personalized.
