It is YOUR day and not hers. You will be wearing the dress and the shoes and only YOU will be the star of the show. Do what makes you happy which is wearing those blue shoes. Unless you are wearing a knee length dress, no one will see the shoes antyways.

I'm kind of surprised at how many people said yes... Isn't your relationship with your mom more important than the shoes you'll wear on one day? If it will cause a huge problem between you and your mom then loose the shoes!
It may be YOUR day but your mom has probably been looking forward to it too, and you're not the only one with ideas about how it should be. I say don't turn it into a big deal, just tell your mom you love her, and then seriously listen to her advice.

Other people have dreams about the wedding too. Her mom, the groom, his mom. I really don't like the "It's MY day!" mentality. You shouldn't sacrifice your relationship with your family members for something silly like shoes. In ten years it'll matter more that the marriage lasted than if the guests kept to the theme or that the florist didn't have exactly the shade of pink roses you wanted.

It seems to me that the my way or the highway thinking is to make the wedding special because it no longer is. Meaning that the bride and groom have already been sleeping together and just getting married isn't special enough. So they have a gigantic wedding and want everything to be perfect because that will somehow make it special, even if it means losing friends and angering family.

I know that my mom and I disagree on a lot of things concerning my wedding, but I want to make sure that the day after the wedding I still have a mom who doesn't hate me.

Besides, is it really a perfect day if everyone you know hates you?

WTH would people hate you for shoes?

Shouldn't the mentality you have be applied to her mother too? Think about it.

I'm not a 'MY' day person in general - but at the same time - it's not anyone else's day besides her and her FH.

So if he likes the shoes - she should wear them. Who in the hell is even going to see them?

It's a STUPID argument in the first place.

Besides the OP is LONG gone. She's not replying or reading anything.

It's time for this thread to just die.

Please wear the shoes because they make you happy! Tell your mother its your day and you are the only one that you need to impress!

It is a farce to say a wedding isn't special because the bride and groom have already slept together. A marriage is special because two people love each other and always will despite anything else. People fall in love as-is and people should get married as-is, and it is special as-is.

No one has a right to say that.
