Remember my post about plastic verses beautiful hangers? Plastic or Beautiful?

Did you see my USF garter? It was a surprise for Sean!
Something Old: My grandmother’s pearls that were passed down to me
Something New: Many things, but my beautiful wedding dress from my mom
Something Borrowed: Diamond earrings that were Sean’s mother’s
Something Blue: That’s Victoria’s Secret (wink!) and of course the “I Do” shoe rhinestones
I had two sets of jewelry for the day. The pearl necklace and earrings were for the ceremony and the diamonds were for the reception. (I also had two hair styles!)
How could you forget my post about my search for hot pink shoes? These Shoes Were Made for Walking. I have you know I didn’t wear either of the shoes I originally found. I kept one pair and wore them for my bachelorette party and returned the other. I found my official wedding day shoes at my bridal salon. Go figure! I’m proud to say I kept them on the entire night! No tacky flip flops for this gal!
And, the “I Do” rhinestone stickers were a huge hit!
Two cat charms were sewn onto my bouquet for my two kitties, Chipper Jones and Salem-Binks. Ladybugs were also sewn onto the bouquet for my sorority, Phi Mu.

These Shoes Were Made for Walking

I’ve had my heart set on wearing hot pink heels on the wedding day for a long time. Not only is pink my absolute favorite color, it’s the accent color in our wedding color scheme. With that being said, I have searched far and wide for THE pair of heels. I’ve seen many contenders but there are two pairs that stick out. 
Now, I’m not crazy about the idea of having patent leather shoes; however, these Gianni Bini hotties are unbelievably comfortable and super easy to walk in (even though they are 5 inches!) Two VERY important shoe aspects on such an important day! I found them at Dillards for a steal so I purchased them in case nothing more amazing comes along.
[Enter discovering Zappos’ website a month later] 
I’ve always seen Zappos’ funny commercials, the ones with super happy Muppet-like characters who absolutely love their call center customer service jobs. I admit, I’m slightly jealous of puppets! Anywho – after the jealousy had subsided, I stumbled upon these RSVP fabulous heels, which could take the lead on my patent leather beauties as favorites. I just hope they’re as comfortable as the Binis! (LOVE the sequins!)

Needless to say, I ordered them (free shipping and free returns get me all the time!) Hello pair #2 of pink heels!

Regardless of what shoes don my feet, I did buy a little bling for the bottom arches – just in case I forget the answer to the big question of the day (just kidding!) but I did think it was a cute “something blue” idea …

The outcome of the shoe decision will be known on the wedding day. Stay tuned!
