Which Shoes with the Green Dress?

So I got the green dress altered for the wedding on Saturday. I also got the shoes. Now I need some input on which ones to wear. I really like the second pair, but it will be an outdoor wedding in a back yard. Those stilleto heels might not be so practical.

What do you think? Number one:





Or Number two:





And the winner is...neither!

I decided to go with these instead:

you should go with red pumps-- you know, the whole complimentary colors thing.

if you have to decide between those, go with #2.

For practical reasons, number one. You don't want to be uncomfy walking and sinking in. Plus that would just ruin them.

RED?!??! Oh garsh, I don't know about that!

Go with #2 even with running the risk of getting my feet stuck in the grass?

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing. But I really like the look of number 2 better. Even though they are less comfy. Hmmm...maybe I should just go barefoot.

yeah, definitely red.

#2 ftw. i'm not a fan of the filled-in high heels. the 2nd pair is a lot classier.

You can wear number 2 and take off the shoes when you come across (in mtb talk) "technical terrain"

One vote for option #3!

Other than that, I'm not really a fan of high heels. #1 has the practicality edge over #2, at least.

Relax ... it's a simple matter of basic math: 12 more pairs is just an average of 4 pairs per day, not even counting Saturday.

Oh yeah ONLY 4 pairs per day. I'm pretty sure that's excessive.
