The always lovely Kerri of Kerried Away Couture sent us these photos of a beautiful wedding she did for one of our Wedding 101 brides, Victoria Foshee. The wedding took place in Mississippi and had a gorgeous vintage 1920’s vibe.

The dresses are gorgeous and are so on trend with that one shoulder style. I love that the fabric isn’t your standard bridesmaid satin or chiffon. The ruffel detail gives the dress a little touch of glamor. This style of dress could easily be cut off and hemmed after the wedding and be worn to other beautiful events as well! I have to take a moment and just say that the bouquet is just fabulous!

Every bride starts somewhere.  For Marci, it was the shoes.

The Shoe that Launched a Wedding Design

 If ever there was a common language all the women in the world could speak, it would be “shoes.” As a former Dillard’s shoe sales associate, I have a healthy passion for heels. My fiance somewhat jokingly tells me I have more worth in my shoe collection than I do in my car—let’s be honest, my car has no A/C and it’s old as dirt. It’s probably true.

 BUT that means I, of all people, should have some fabulous wedding shoes! I wanted my something blue to be a riveting pair of blue, or near-blue, amazing and sexy shoes that would stand out something fierce against my white gown. These are the ones I fell head over heels for and became the starting point for the wedding’s whole color palette:

 They are simply…my favorite shoes ever. I obsessed over them—too them everywhere with me for awhile, stuffed unceremoniously in my purse. It was a heartbreaking day when I finally admitted to myself that there was no way I could walk down an aisle in the grass, dance the night away, and escape to my honeymoon in these without damaging my poor little feet. I’d end up kicking them off after the first dance and ruining my beautiful white gown.

 Pure. Heartbreak.

 And then a light bulb went off: get away shoes!! I found myself a new gorgeous dress to leave the party in and re-assigned these first shoes to be the beauties I’d wear to run away into the night with my new husband. WIN!

 And then the search started again for blue wedding shoes. Search after search turned up navy after navy shoe, and then I saw these pretty little things:


 Bright blue? Check. Cute little silver piece to match my dress. Check. Appropriate height for dancing and walking down an outdoor aisle. Check. Comfortable for dancing? Check! I started breathing easy again. Shoes down. Bring the rest of the planning on!

But when I got to thinking about what I ought to get my bridal party gals, it took me a long, long time to realize it ought to be… dun dun DUNN…shoes! Of course! How did I not see it before? I read about these fun silver numbers from DSW in Wedding 101’s Wed for Less post, and they are perfect.

 It seems like everyone but me knew I’d agonize over one of the most overlooked details of the wedding day for most people. In retrospect, it’s perfect for me that shoes would be that one thing I worked so hard to get right. And I couldn’t be happier with the choices!
