Shoes - buy in store or online

Hello fellow brides!!

I had the most exciting phone call last week - my wedding dress was ready to be picked up....about 3 months early!!! I am over the moon to have my dress and already have my alterations lined up. But now I am thinking about shoes, as I'd like to have them PRIOR to my alterations appointment.

My question to you all is - if you have your shoes, did you buy them online or in store?

Shoes can be such a tough one, as you want them to be comfy, as you'll be in them for a long time, and this can be tough online BUT can also be tough in person too!! (I remember I bought my shoes for my besties wedding in person, and was dying by dinner lol - they need test runs for heels!!)

If you did buy online - where did you buy?? Love hearing your recommendations!

    The badgley Mishkia your wondering about if they are comfy or the Steve maddens?
    Both designers have found to be comfortable! But I鈥檓 also choosing a block heel which is usually more comfy!

    OOOOOOOO I love the color of those shoes! great find! I gotta start looking at sales/deals haha #frugallife

    OMG yes! I don't think I have ever worn a pointy heel, just not my jam! I'm a wedge kinda girl so if I do a heel, gotta be CHONKY.

    You got me leaning more towards a sneaker than a heel! I kinda already wanted to switch shoes when the dancing started and they look so cute in photos! Might just have to look elsewhere as I want to love keds but every time I get a pair, they hurt my toes! Just a bit too narrow.

    Brown's is great about their return policy, even for online orders. They didn't have my size available in store so I tried a different colour on for the fit, and had my size shipped straight to my house. Took a 10 days to arrive, but the size was shipping from a store in Quebec.


    These are my wedding shoes! I didn't want to be towering over my fiance so I went with a little block heel. I also wanted something blingy but still comfortable to be on my feet all day. Super sparkly in person and very comfortable! I didn't mind the price because it's a style I'd use again for another function.

    There are constantly sales but honestly, you're paying for quality and comfort when it comes to Keds (I'll never sacrifice that in shoes). A bit of a mark up for Kate Spade's name, yes, but the resale value is great! I sold them for $75 I think.

    I had a pair of boots that I bought for my winter wedding...however it'll be in June now. My dress is floor length on me so I don't want to get heels. I bought a couple boxes of rescue flats for my guests to kick their heels off later in the night and I have seriously just been considering using a pair of them. No one will see my shoes so I don't really care. I'm 5'9" and definitely dont need heels.

    Oh good idea! I hadn't thought of looking at other sites. I looked on keds site and just couldn't justify the price of those shoes because I know Im just paying for the name attached haha

    I bought mine online from Keds but then got them at a better price online at The Bay. I prefer ordering online but always make sure it's easy and free returns. So easy to sell after!

    I sorta did both. I was looking on le chateaus website before they closed and they had a pair I loved on their site so my MOH went to the store and got them for me. The key to heels is making sure you break them in well before before wedding. My wedding is in 3.5 months and I plan on starting to wear my shoes around the house this week

    If the store you're eyeing has a good return policy, I would do online especially if they have free shipping. It depends on the store and how much you're willing to pay for the shoes but as a guy, I find shoe stock levels for in-person shopping to be hit and miss. Probably because they have to make room in the store for the seasonal stuff.
