Can't decide on shoes - Please help!!

I have a bit of a dilema some opinions (especially if you have worn any of these shoes)  Naturally with out shoes I am 2 inches taller than my fiance. I'm 5'8", he is 5'6".   He hates it, I hate it because I no longer wear heels.  Boy do I miss my heels!  Originally I was going to do flats, but the more I thought about it I said screw it, I want heels.  So I have already looked into getting him lifts for his shoes, I can him 5inch lifts which leaves me 3 inches to play with.


I purchased one pair of shoes online from a friend.  They were 3inch RSVP Royal Blue heels.  Gorgeous shoes with a 3inch heel.  I tried them on with my dress and 3inch is the perfect size to work with the hem of my dress.  Anything taller won't work.  Anything less will be ok.


The shoes I have though are really not suited for my feet, they just don't fit right and I know I will be fussing with them all night long, so I need new shoes.  I have fallen in love with two different shoes however of course with my luck the heel is too tall.  Why is it that the designers can't come up with these cute styles in a shorter heel???  There are tall brides who don't want to be close to 6ft on their wedding day!!


Budget is also a concern.  I can't afford $200 shoes, just can't do it.  I also need them to be comfortable.  I have a bunion on the right foot and the left foot was operated on a few years ago.  The dr's broke that foot and the bone never healed properly - so comfort is a must!


My dress is the Maggie Jenna

J Renne Navy GlitterI have a bit photo 3425950-3


Nina Forbes

Nina FernI have a bit photo 3425950-7


Pink Paradox - CinnamonI have a bit photo 3425950-8


 


So which do you like?


Have you worn any of these(or know someone who has) and what has been your experience?

Well my colors are navy (doing the bm dresses in navy so they can reuse them) and then I will be doing purples through out everything else - purple his my fiance's favorite color - the green well that's my favorite color.


So I  decided i want color so it's either navy glitter, purple, or apple green



http://www.zappos.com/nina-fern this also comes in navy

http://www.zappos.com/nina-forbes grape or apple green

Tough decisions!!

I am glad to hear that the Forbes are comfy - that is an aboslute must!

Not familiar with the brands but my wedding is purple and green and im wearing a darker purple/plum heel or silver. Go for a lower (but sexy!)heel. I like the navy ones and the Nina Fern. But the first ones are pretty as well. Those are my fav 3....

I had the same problem my DH.  I'm 2 inches taller than he is.  I wore a very low heel (maybe 1 inch heels) but they ended up being uncomfortable so during our reception, I was barefoot. I also work at home and I'm in scrubs most of the time, so flats are what I usually wear. 


Out of all the shoes that you posted, these are my favorites. 


I had the same photo 3426059-1    I had the same photo 3426059-2


I was in a wedding and we wore Nina shoes and they were comfortable and didn't cause any problems.  HTH!

I did some research this morning - I get up entirely WAY to early...lol


 


I am going to be wearing a slip underneath my dress and I found that it's going to change the hem of the dress.  Right now with out the slip with 3 inch heels the length is almost perfect maybe a teensy weensy bit longer but really not noticible.  So with that being said I think I may be better off going with a heel that is 2.75 inches which leaves me with the J. Renee Rosina shoes - Now to decide what color, ack!!


 


I found a real life picture of the silver shoes and they are really pretty.  My concern is that the navy is going to be too dar with a diamond white dress, but the navy does take care of my something blue.  The multi is pretty and takes care of the color aspect I was looking for and well the silver I feel is just classic.

Any thoughts?

I vote for Nina shoes as well. I own several pair and they are super comfortable! The first pair are really gorgeous but for some reason they don't look comfortable to me.

I just read your update and was wondering do you typically wear slingbacks? The reason I am asking is originally I purchased slingbacks to wear for my wedding. Luckily they were inexpensive, clearance at JCPenny because my ankles are non-existent and they would not stay up on the heel of my foot. If you do not typically wear shoes like this, I would suggest you do a trial run before purchasing.


Also, I think the Navy will be fine but as Jan stated, J Renee shoes are super cute but they are cut narrow and they can hurt! I own about three pair of J Renee shoes and I barely wear them. If you plan on changing shoes for the reception, then you may be okay, but they are just not comfortable for long usage.
