Make Your Own Wedding Shoes

I knew in my heart of hearts that I wouldn’t be able to wear my beautiful high heeled wedding shoes all day. I assumed I would probably make it to the evening and then I would want to pop on a pair of flats. I don't normally wear heels for long periods of time. I've got out of the habit since I changed jobs and have found flatter shoes more practical. Gosh I'm starting to sound old aren't i?

Knowing that my high heeled shoes had already cost a lot of money, I decided I would buy a cheap pair of cream pumps and decorate them myself. That way they would look amazing, be unique and also save a few pennies on another pair of shoes that I would probably only wear for a few hours.

I bought a pair of pumps from Shoe Zone. These cost me just £7.99 including free delivery. I also bought myself 350 3mm gems and 100 5mm gems online from ebay - total cost was £4.15 including free delivery.

I then set about affixing the gems on to the design on the shoe. I chose shoes with a flower design and put one large gem in the centre and the smaller gems in the petals. I decided just to do the front of the shoes, as to not make them too blingy.

It took me about 2 – 3 hours to complete the gem work on the shoes, but I think they look really effective.

So the total cost of my wedding evening shoes was £12.14. What do you think? Would you make your own wedding shoes?

I've put together a Pinterest board with some ideas where brides have made or decorated their own wedding shoes.

      Oh yes you could definitely do that. There's lots of lovely bits you can buy to decorate shoes (and clothes) and very reasonably priced too!
