Dear readers, meet my perfect wedding shoe.
This little beauty is everything I could want and more. She's pretty and dainty, frilly without being silly, not your typical dyed-to-match wedding shoe, she has a strap so I won't step out of her, and at only $45, a steal. She is the prefect shoe. She is the Sam & Libby Whimsy Satin Flower Mary Jane in gold, from DSW.com. I would be placing my order right now instead of typing this if I could. Unfortunately, this story doesn't have a happy ending. My perfect shoe is only available in a size 10. I need an 8 or 8.5. I've been scouring the internet trying to find this shoe somewhere else, but have so far come up empty. At this point, I'm beginning to lose all hope of finding her.
So, what do you do when you've found your perfect shoe, but can't have it?
On a happier note, we've found a possible (probable) photographer and a "pretty sure" piano player, started registries at Macy's and Target, purchased and locked away our wedding bands, and roped our "couldn't-be-happier" friend Taylor into singing at the ceremony.
So, I guess if I have to settle for less-than-perfect shoes, I can handle it.
