Goldilocks and the Three Pairs of Shoes

SShoes. Who would think they would be the hardest thing to pick out? I found my dress the second day I went out looking but I have been searching for the perfect pair of shoes for six months now. I ‘m like Goldilocks and the Three Pairs of Shoes. The first pair was too high but pretty, the second pair was comfortable but not so pretty,  hopefully the third pair will be just right (when I find it).

My initial instinct was to wear flats or a very very small heel. I was being practical at that point. Then I started seeing photos of brides in really beautiful high heels and let the fashion side of my brain take over (which of course is also the more expensive side of my brain). So, I ordered the most beautiful pair of heels, see…

most gorgeous wedding shoes ever

They were gorgeous but they had a 4-inch heel and for that I wasn’t willing to pay the price or experience the agony. I realized that my shoes aren’t going to be visible for most of the wedding anyway and in the end I decided that the most important thing is to be comfortable. So I returned them with a pang of sadness in my heart and picked up something that would be way more comfortable…

ugly shoesYeah, they were way more comfortable but not exactly the look I was going for. I have decided to continue the search and find something pretty, comfortable, and with a very low heel.

My project management advice is to plan to put shopping for shoes on your schedule at least six months before the wedding. You want to make sure that you have enough time to find the perfect pair (whatever that my be for you). Boy, do I have my work cut out for me.
