My shoes initially looked like this
Even after taking them off for the walk across the stream to get to our ceremony spot
they got wet in the rain before our reception and now look like this:
In case you haven't been following I searched for turquoise shoes for months and finally settled on some dyeable flats from David's Bridal.
Not to fear! I had a back up pair of fuschia flip flops I got for $3 at Target in case I couldn't find anything else.
Warning! If there is any possibility that you or your bridesmaids will be walking outside in dyeable shoes - don't do it. I knew this was going to happen even if it didn't rain. But I really wanted this color and wasn't willing to settle. People have told me that even if you barely walk in grass that may be damp the color will run. Either give in and get something else, keep looking, or have backups.
In the end I think we got some great photos of my blue shoes and kinda liked wearing the flip flops during our reception.
