Is this a no-no? My bridesmaids (my older cousins) have told me I cannot wear suede heels with my satin ball gown but I don’t really understand why. Has anyone done this, or do you think it would look strange? By suede shoes I mean either suede Oxford style shoes with a mid heel (in navy, wedding color), or navy suede heels with an ankle strap. Both have an almond toe shape. Is that too casual for a big satin ball gown? I’m constantly walking the line between elegant and rustic/somewhat more relaxed for the whole wedding so I didn’t think suede shoes would be odd but they are extremely against it. I don’t think people will even see my shoes all that much! Give me your thoughts please!
Typically no, you would not wear semi-casual velvet shoes with a satin ballgown. However, it’s your wedding day and you can wear any shoes you choose! Like you said, you are wearing a large gown and your shoes probably won’t be seen anyway. Plus, you are more likely to get more use out of those shoes, as they are casual enough to wear later with jeans, dresses, etc.
