How Much Did You Spend on Your Shoes?

If you're comfortable sharing, how much did you spend on your shoes for the big day? I found a pair that I am absolutely in love with, but they are way more expensive than I even considered spending on shoes. Do I splurge on the pair I love or compromise because they're just shows for just one day? Which was more important to you? Help!

    How long is your dress? If it鈥檚 floor length, I wouldn鈥檛 splurge on shoes... no one will see them! If you have a shorter dress then splurge away

    Oh and I spent $40 on mine, and literally no one saw them except for my friend who is 7 months pregnant and was rocking 4 inch heels like a freaking pro, and so I showed her my 2 inch ones 馃槀

    My dress was long so nobody even knew what my shoes looked liked. 馃槉

    I only spent $30, I think. I just wanted something to give me a bit of height, while still allowing me to walk gracefully and be bridal looking. With a long dress, they won鈥檛 be seen much anyways. Maybe a pic or two while getting ready.

    I think I spent maybe $20-$25 at the most from Davids Bridal. I got these because I can wear them again

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. They would look amazing in the accessories photo, but with a floor-length dress, they really aren't gonna be seen.

    I spend $100 on my shoes. For me it was about comfort but of course looks. I bought A LOT of shoes and tested them at home after work, before work, during my period to see if I could handle them. Our feet tend to swell up and handle shoes differently. I returned all of them expect this one and I have no regrets mostly because I鈥檒l use it again. For me comfort was the most important aspect so I would have gone higher on the price if need it. It looks is more important to you and you can pay for it then go for it. You鈥檒l reuse the shoes after all.

    Mine were $35 wedge sandals. No one saw them in my wedding dress and I can wear them again.

    It was important for me to pick shoes I鈥檓 gonna wear again. So I say go for it especially if you are going to wear them again. I spent $50 on mines.

    I spent $800 on a pair of Christian Louboutins and I do regret it. They are uncomfortable and I couldn鈥檛 wear them all night. They did look nice in the pictures but no one else saw them! Because Wedding dresses are usually floor length

    I spent $130 on my Badgley Mischkas on clearance. My dress is long and full so no one is, but I still wanted something special and they鈥檒l be in detail shots. I was originally going to splurge on Louboutin鈥檚, but I compromised since they won't really be seen.

    The ones I'm looking at are $300, but they're flats, so I know comfort won't be an issue. Thanks for sharing your regret, I appreciate the honesty!!

    I was looking at Badgley Mischkas, as well, but the ones that really caught my eye are $300 Bella Belle shoes. I know they won't be seen much, so I can't decide if I want to splurge just as a treat for my sake or be more practical about it. Thanks for sharing!

    I鈥檓 spent $175 for my Tieks. I didn鈥檛 want to spend a whole lot of money for shoes to wear one day. Plus I can wear them on both of our honeymoons. And everyday wear.

    I originally spent $37 on mine because I couldn鈥檛 bring myself to spend $225 on the ones I really wanted. But then I found the ones I really wanted on sale for $90. So I returned the $37 pair and bought the $90 pair. The second pair is much more in line with what I wanted. Plus, the heel is much lower too, so I won鈥檛 kill my feet.
