BLUE wedding shoes

If you really know me, you would know that my favourite colour is BLUE. Hence, it is only natural I would want a BLUE wedding theme, right? Unfortunately, it is frown upon in Chinese customs as BLUE and white colours are associated with funeral. However, it is the 21st century and some people aren't as lou tou (old fashioned).

Besides, it is supposed to be my wedding and with my having to give up a lot of fancy ideas and what not due to cost constraints, I should be allowed some concession.

Then again, beggars can't be choosers. I am sure I've blogged in the past on how my wedding banquet hall is going to be decked in the traditional Chinese's auspicious red and gold. Seeing how I AM on a tight budget, I've decided to forgo the BLUE theme for the hall as it'll be costly to re-decorate it in BLUE.

However, that doesn't mean I can't have a BLUE bouquet, BLUE Bridal dress, command my Ji Muis - known as 'sisters' that functions like bridesmaids - to show up in BLUE and have the groom and his groomsmen (Heng Dais aka Brothers) be attired in BLUE too!

My main dress for the Wedding Ceremony aka Marriage Blessing will be a whiteish ivory, long, sweetheart neckline dress with a cobalt BLUE sash, though I am thinking to add some cover up top using chiffon or some see-through clothe as I am not exactly the kind that shows my chest, if I can get a tailor to do it for me.
Hence, with my striking BLUE sash, it is only natural that I would like to pair it off with stiriking BLUE shoes. And lucky for me, BLUE is the current fad right now, Cobalt BLUE to boot! However, you'd think that I would easily be able to find a decent pair but up-to-date, ZILCH! Nada! I've yet to see any remotely decent, elegant ones!

Manalo Blahnik's BLUE pumps.

What do you think of the Manalo Blahnik's BLUE shoes above? It was made famous by Carrie in Sex and the City. It doesn't exactly bring WOW to one's mind but it is one of the better BLUE heels I've seen so far. It's a bit plain but the embellishment at the front makes up for it and you can't go wrong with satin shoes as it gives off an elegant finishing.

If one wants a 'statement' heels, I reckon the below with peacock feathers speak volumes. But to me, it's a bit pointless to wear this with a long wedding gown. You won't be able to see the feathers and the feathers will probably drop off with long term usage.

This BLUE heels with feather was taken from HERE.

Of course the internet will be teeming with other more gorgeous BLUE shoes that can be simple, elegant and yet stunning but if comes with a price, a hefty one. So, at the end of the day, one has to set a budget on how much one is willing to splurge on wedding shoes. You have to also factor in, is the price tag really worth it? How often will you wear the shoes? If it is just that one time, then, best not to pay through your nose.

For me, I would pay maximum AUD100 for a pair but it has to look AWESOME at first glance and be super comfortable when I slip them on. Naturally, it would have to be a shoe that I would consider wearing at least, a few more times after the wedding day.

On the other hand, if it is a beautiful shoes but not that comfortable and I wouldn't wear it much, then AUD50 is the maximum I would pay.


Luxury designer shoes always come with a price tag that would burnt a hole in one's pocket! Often times, they do stand out and look more glamorous like the ones in the above picture. But are they really worth many hundreds to thousands of dollars? So what if it's Jimmy Choo's or Valentino or Salvatore Ferragamo? I would only pay if they had a clearance and was going for less than AUD100. LOL.

Call me a miser but I pride myself as a practical person. Sure, I do give in to impulses on nice and shiny things at times. However, I have to stay grounded and not send us to the poor house with my wants when needs trump it anyday. Told you, it's my pragmatic nature but it doesn't mean I can drool.

A simple one off Ebay.
Last resort, I might as well just get one off Ebay and pray to the High Heavens, once again that the shoes will turn out nice, beautiful and COMFORTABLE!! Despite my wedding dress from Ebay that turned out a disaster. Thank God for the DinoDirect one. I still believe in Ebay but I will thread more cautiously than before.
Royal Blue Peeptoe from Ebay.

Sometimes, I just don't get fashion. The above wedge looks ridiculous though I LOVE the BLUE shade. But many will probably beg to differ on the awful looking design. After all, it is a TONY BIANCO 'Fairlie' two toned t-bar wedge.


From Ebay, crazy pumps and tall heels!
Floral pumps from Ebay.
Imagine me wearing the above for my wedding... it does look sweet but the heels and pumps are too tall for me. Wouldn't want to tower over Mr. C!

Somehow, the height of shoe fashion are crazy TALL heels. Yes, heels do make one's leg look longer and sexy. But bear in mind, wrong kind of heels that hurt will lead to health implications in the future ie back aches and what not. Besides, some heels are not suitable in the sense, instead of making one's leg look slim, long and sexy, your calves end up looking bulgy and yuck!

I've seen it on this girl who was slim but her heels made her calves stand out, not in a flattering manner. And too thin a heel is bad because it'll make you wobble as you walk causing discomfort and abused feet that will be in need of a soothing massage.

LOVE your feet!! Don't compromise beauty over health! Beauty definitely means something but it is overrated. Then again, we take in what the media says. So, if you really must super high heels and what not, just make sure you find and wear COMFY ones!
I really like the above but I won't get it for my wedding as it might clash with my gown. Then again, the darker BLUE shade will match wonderfully! I would love a pair of satin shoes like the below picture but in BLUE and not-so-flattened looking bows. Height of the shoes looks alright.

Any suggestions for those residing in Melbourne or Malaysia where I can get my dream BLUE wedding shoes??!
Or even any reputable online sites I can buy from, do drop me a comment! :)

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the
