12 hours of sleep, and my knees are pretty much good for usage now. Now I just have to go and hunt down my breakfast.

Be warned, in my experience they have been really uncomfortable.

Have you seen those ones in the flesh before? the colour is much darker than it appears on the website. I actually know someone who wore a pair of irregular choice dark blue ones similar to that for her wedding as her 'something blue'. You couldn't really see them under her dress.

If you like those you might like some of the Bourne shoes on Viva la Diva at the moment.

I have the Black and White ones (They are not my Wedding ones though).

Edit: Damn I think I may be a little bit addicted to shoes...

Doing a metric fuckton of shredding. It's rather satisfying and therapeutic.

I've not seen them, no. I was having a little browse on Schuh, and found them. But as Fibbly warns, they might be uncomfortable.. I'm terrible with heels in general. :(



Those are lovely :o But a pretty hefty price tag...

Have you had a look on nexts website? They have a big range on there. I tried these ones from there: http://tinyurl.com/344w3j3 (actually I brought about 7 pairs from there to try on) But they were a bit too high. I'm sure I have seen some similar shoes to the Bourne ones else where, I'll have a think about it and PM you any links.

They had those I.C shoes in Shuh when I was last in there, I think they are lovely, but the colour in real life is more of a metallic gold than the website makes out. Go check them out... remember you could always buy a pair and try them on with your dress and return them if you dontlike them.

It's going to be a huge job trying to find shoes. I have never done heels in my life. I've bought several pairs only to throw them to the back of my wardrobe, never worn because I'm too shy to walk in them in public :lol:

I need a strap on my shoes, otherwise I fall out of them! So something like those Bourne ones I liked would be perfect. The thing I'm dreading most about the wedding is wearing shoes - I don't like heels, but it wouldn't feel right wearing flats on my wedding day - my hair, make up, dress and hands are going to be all done up and polished, flat shoes wouldn't feel right, even if no-one could see them. I'm possibly being silly. :oops:

BHS had some shoes that had a round toe, quite a small heel and a ribbon round the ankle, I tried them on and they were really comfy. I have just looked on the website and it looks like they are discontinuing them so they have been reduced right down (but not many sizes left - they may have some more in the shops though?).
Anyway they were: http://www.bhs.co.uk/mall/productpage.cfm/bhsstore/112063/217653

I had these ones delivered to next to try on and they were also comfy:

http://tinyurl.com/3yfom7s the little strap thing is actually pretty good at keeping feet in. If you want to wear flats on your wedding day, wear them. I probably would have worn flats out of comfort, but I wanted to get out of paying £80 to have my dress taken up an inch or two so decided to invest the money into shoes instead (so I wont need dress taken up)
