Sweet Dreams of Nina Electra Wedding Shoes

If you all remember my post last week, Accessorizing the Bride, I mentioned these cute little ‘design your own’ Nina Electras I have been eying for well over 6 months. I mentioned my predicament that in order to get my dream shoes for our wedding I would need to special order them in a 3.25″ heel (they come stock in the 4″ heel which is wayyy to tall for this lady). The problem? The price. The custom heel height is $199. If you join their mailing list you can get 10% off your first order, but I just couldn’t wrap my head around paying $180 for shoes that I may only wear once (it has taken me a long time to get to this point, when we first got engaged I started looking at shoes that were between $300-600… yes I was out of control).

One day, while browsing Weddingbee , I decided to check out their classified section on the site and came across a pair of Design Your Own Nina Electras in Ivory in my size. A bride ordered them custom from Nina and later decided to wear a different shoe for her wedding. SCORE! and the price? $80 including shipping. DOUBLE SCORE!

Now you may say “$80 is still quite a bit for a pair of heels,” not if the only difference between them and the $200 one is that they have been worn around the house once. Check out  my sweet WeddingBee classifieds deal (I still can’t get over it!). As my Mom says, when its meant to be… its meant to be.
