The shoe and invitation stage

Right now in the wedding planning process, I’ve got invites and shoes on my radar.  Even though our wedding isn’t until March, because guests will be traveling and planning for flight and lodging, it’s important that we give them plenty of time to do so.  This means that it’s time to get our buns in gear and mail them out.  Our talented friend Eric is helping us design them and this process is a new and fun experience for me.  Nicole and Patrick’s wedding is coming up and I really liked their invites.  The colors are so fun and work great together.  They’re pretty close to our wedding colors too, actually.  It was nice to have the main envelope create a pocket which had the various detail cards tiered inside.

Let’s talk shoes.  I’ve been on the hunt for unique kicks to wear under my Sarah Seven gown.  Something with a wider, shorter heel or wedge and poppy color is preferred, although unlike these I think I want an open toed shoe as it will be a warm day.  I found a few on Anthropologie.  Do you have any other unique wedding shoe finds?
