Grey Likes Weddings Rockin' a new rock?!

Why is it so difficult to find nice wedding shoes?

I am going for my first dress fitting in about 3 weeks and I will need my shoes before then to make sure that the seamstress hems the dress to the proper length. So, my quest for shoes began and to say it was an utter lackluster experience would be an understatement.

Here in Montreal, we have a wedding district, St Hubert Street. It is a long street with everything you could possibly need for your wedding; wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, clutches, hair pieces, you name it – they have it… with the exception of nice shoes. I saw hundreds of pairs that would only be appropriate for a wedding circa 1990. What’s the deal?

After having explored the whole street and some local malls with no success, it was time to turn to wonderful World Wide Web.

Now, shoes are one of those things that you really should try on. Will they squeeze your toes? Are they stiff as a board? Are they true to size? These are all things that can only be answered by slipping them on and walking around the store. Nevertheless, I was determined to find something so that I would have enough time to receive them, try them, return them and find another pair if needed before the fitting. As it turns out, I’m obsessed with bows and my fave designers are Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang. These were the top contenders:

{Throughout my research, I found the following sites most helpful}

After browsing for what seemed like days, I narrowed down my search to my top two favorites to discover that one of them was sold out in my size and the other did not ship to Canada. Can’t a girl catch a break?

So, fellow brides, I turn to you. Where did you get your shoes? Do you have any tips? Is it true that Badgley Mischka shoes are dreadfully painful as the reviews would suggest? Any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
