Wedding Shoes


One of the (many) female stereotypes I don’t fit into is a love of shoes. I just don’t get it. Shoes should be flat, comfortable, and worn until they’re full of holes.

I compromised on our wedding day, and bought one inch heeled ivory silk shoes. “You need proper heels,” I was told. “I don’t want to fall over,” I replied.

By the time of the wedding breakfast, after wearing them for a few hours, my feet were thoroughly uncomfortable and I ditched the shoes under the table during the meal and went barefoot (tight-footed?) for the rest of the day.

The picture above sums up our wedding for me. Mr Chaos getting to be James Bond for the night, and neither of us completely conforming to other people’s expectations (although I still think we were too conventional really…)

  1. Lovely! Hurrah for James Bond and his shoe-free bride! Love your dress – I wanted mine to be like yours but was persuaded otherwise! x

  2. aw, don’t you look lovely! My wedding shoes were a pair of white flat leather sandally type things from Germany that I got in the clearance section of TK Maxx, they were very comfortable and I still wear them sometimes. I’m really not into shoes either.
