That's awesome news about your invitations! Glad you got them sorted :).

If you're worried about cheap BM shoes, can I recommend payless or spendless? They have some AWESOME shoes and their prices are brilliant!

I second that. Also try Target, Williams and DFO. You'll get them for less than $50 bucks. I've seen some nice C'est Bon shoes for like $20 at Williams.

Yeah, C'est Bon has some of the most lovely shoes I've seen; also After Hours has some nice shoes:

They're like, $39.95 and really comfy, I tried a pair on the other day and nearly bought them. They've got a nice heel on them, not too high and nice and sturdy so they're good for girls who aren't comfy with narrow little heels.

I see you found it LOL... sorry, I was at work and no net access for me there! :(

KC... it looks FANTASTIC!!!!

I've told my girls just to wear/find a pair of shoes that they either have or will wear again. I don't want them to spend a lot of money. I've told my MOH she can wear her docs if she wants to LOL and my BM can wear her Colorado loafers if she wants to LOL... but both are buying black heels - they won't be the same though cause they will be buying them at different times and live far from each other.

My MOH reckons I should be the one to wear the Docs LOL... I can get them in Cherry - just gotta convince FH LOL hahaha

I'll probly end up with a pair of heels for the ceremony though and a pair of flats for the reception. I will need a bit of extra height for the photos cause I'm a foot shorter than Greg LOL (and everyone else LOL)

Wow, it looks phenomenal!!

Silver shoes with a white dress would look pretty good - I mean, seriously, with however many brides doing it, it must be a good look! The red and white look is really stunning!!

I'm terrified of dancing in my wedding shoes but if I don't wear them I'll end up tripping over my dress because the dress has been custom made to suit the shoes! HOMG!!

Next friday we're meeting with the lady of Forever After Cakes and tasting some flavours and organising the look of our cake.

All i have left is booking hotel (where are you girls staying), FH suit, wedding car and little things like get ribbon for bonbonieres etc.

We're staying at the Sofitel on our wedding night. It's really nice and not that expensive, about $236 or something. I mean, sure, that is expensive for one night but compared to other hotels of the same standard it's fairly cheap lol!

Charcoal, lilac and silver would look absolutely beautiful!!

That's an awesome idea!

Odd about the prices being different - is your wedding on a Saturday or a Sunday? I think Saturday prices might be more expensive than Sundays.

Unfortunately David's Bridal doesn't have everything - they don't provide for bridesmaids or brides with short hair, for example, but it's good enough to give you a general idea.
