I have Greek feet!

So I’ve been having this problem with wedding shoes. I’d like to blame my feet and, for once, I actually do have a legitimate excuse. I found it on Wikipedia. This is not me being a hypochondriac (this time.)

Here is what I learned: My toe is the same shape as the Statue of Liberty. Apparently it was the preferred aesthetic of Greek sculpture for the second toe to be longer than the first. Yup.

This is NOT the preferred type of shoe for a person wading through a sea of evening shoes, all shaped perfectly for the perfect bride with perfect feet.

I do have a pair that I can wear for the ceremony. I’d like to keep that height for the reception though I don’t know if I can bear it and may have to change into my Nike Dunks sooner rather than later.

What bothers me is that I have SO MANY SHOES in my closet right now that fit my weirdo feet- just not wedding shoes.

Wish me luck. There are a few more weeks left and several more boxes coming in the mail of shoes (both red and white ones.) I’ll find something. I know I will. And they will be beautiful and perfect for dancing the night away.

Lucky Shoe Number Seven

My shoes have arrived! This is the seventh style of shoes I’ve tried and the first of the non-ivory variety. I’m kind of into them, although in the photos they look more orange than coral, which is what they’re supposed to be.

Unfortunately, I can only try one of them on at the moment so I won’t fully be able to test drive their comfort level at full capacity atleast until the soft cast comes off my foot.

While I’m kind of digging the colored shoe (versus a white or ivory which is totally not practical in NYC; I have a pair of formerly-known-as-white sandals to prove this), Madison is not so sure about these.

Matching Neon Wayfarers

Last weekend, Gavin and I got to relax and spend some quality time together. It was the first weekend in a long time that we didn’t have anything scheduled and it was wonderful.

So we went for a run together in Central Park. It was really sunny out and we rocked our matching neon wayfarers.

I finally got over to the post office to rescue my package of wedding undergarments that had come in the mail that week. So pretty!

When we got back, all I wanted to do was relax. So I put on my wedding kicks and sweatpants and dove into some light wedding planning on my laptop.

This continued on through Sunday. I feel like we got a lot done. And where we didn’t, atleast we know now what we need to do. Gavin helped out too, as did the cats. (Recently, BOTH have been sitting on his lap at the same time, which is kind of hilarious.)

Checked off our list are: photographer (meeting this Friday), bridesmaid dresses (touched base with Josandra on the style/color), rentals (confirmed list with both moms), servers (sent in deposit and confirmed time), day-of schedule (updated the site), rehearsal “dinner” (more to come on that), wedding insurance (as required by our venue) and reception decorations.
