Blue Shoe Dilemma

So I ALWAYS wanted my "something blue" to be my wedding shoes. I hunted around everywhere for months and was never able to come up with the right shade of blue or the right style of shoe. I finally found a pair that I fell in love with on endless.com for an extremely reasonable price. They are a peep toe 5" platform pump in "teal", which was perfect because I didn't want a dark or pale blue. I finally got them in the mail yesterday and was so excited to try them on and then FI made a comment..."they look kinda green". Yes, I understand that teal is a combination of blue and green, but that comment sent me into panic mode that people will be looking at my shoes and wondering, "Why is she wearing greenish shoes??". I don't really want to return them because then I have to start this process all over again :(


I know I am obsessing, but do you think it'll matter if my "something blue" is instead "something teal"? I just wanted to get some other bride's input since everyone else thinks I'm being crazy, which I probably am but it's important to me. Thanks in advance for listening!

If you love them, keep and wear them.  It could be the lighting that's making them look more green than blue.  What would you think about putting some blue crystals on them?  Or just underneath the heel saying "I Do"?

Yea, if you love them, you will love them in your wedding photos and that's all that matters. But I know it's hard when people make comments-it just gets to us as brides! I say keep them! Show us a picture...then we can decide! hehe.

I say go for it cause they are GORGEOUS!!! If you really wanted you could get something else blue (garter…) and just have the shoes as an amazing color pop accessory. No one is going to wonder why your shoes are blue, green, teal or anything. So many brides wear colored shoes now.

I agree.  If you were having problems finding something, I would just go with the choice you have already made.  One less thing to think about.  No one will be thinking about your shoes.  If they are, you won't know about it. :)

This was my motto and I am passing it along to future brides. YOUR DAY, YOUR WAY!!!! Always remember that! Who cares what anyone thinks and if you love those shoes, get them! If you are worried about something blue, have a blue ribbon on your garter or wear blue underwear. My something blue was my underwear and they literally said something blue!  They are an excellent choice so keep them!

1.I think your dress is going to be long so people will not see them all the time and will not be thinking: "why is she wearing "greenish" shoes?" the whole time ;)


2. The shoes look incredible good and that will make people who see them think :"WOW cool shoes"


3. I really love them ;)

I can tell you from my experience that ppl are so into the dress, the bouquet and the set up, no one really pays that much attention to your shoes. I , however, understand the importance of it to you. I would wear them, and as Mrs. Cale says, put the 'I DO' stickers on as well. So no worries!

p.s.


With that said, I would also get a pair of flats on standby, 5" is pretty high to survive the whole wedding with.

Thanks for the boost of confidence ladies! I'm totally going to rock my teal shoes! haha! I have some cute sparkly slip on shoes that I am handing out to all my BMs and myself so we can change into for dancing since we all will be wearing 5" heels. Maybe I will do the "I Do" stickers on the bottom, although I love how the bottoms already look because they have a heart on them. <3 I'll keep you guys posted on the final look. Thanks again! :)
