Perhaps the worst decision ever

First of all:
MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
And now back to regularly scheduled programming...

So, there was a time when I had decided on The Shoes that I would wear on The Big Day.

Well, that was then and this is now.

*sigh*

I think I might be wearing Crocs on my wedding day. I know how terrible of an idea this is in terms of aestethics!!!! I KNOW. But here's the thing, now that I'm "with young" I'm no longer all too concerned with the whole idea of trying to be the typical "princess" bride. Well, not that I was concerned with that to begin with but I was at least trying to play it up for as much as it was worth.

The thing of it is for as much as the love/hate relationship does exist in the general public - that of which I was a participant of the "hate" side - They are UNBELIEVABLY comfortable!!! You just have no idea. I got myself a burgundy Mary Jane pair and I have basically worn them done to nothing. And even though the puppy chewed off one of the straps, I STILL wear them to run about the house.

It's been my intention to replace them since I've worn down the treads because I practically have lived in them alone since starting my teaching job but that brings up the whole question of what color. Do I get another burgundy pair that go with everything? Or, now that the wedding is a MONTH and a HALF away (Oh my land I cannot believe it!) and I'm now that much more open to wearing Crocs with my wedding dress (with the incredible searching I've done to find comfortable shoes that I won't topple over in now that my center of gravity has changed), I'm thinking maybe I should get a pair that I could wear with my wedding dress?

Behold the silver Mary Jane Crocs that I found:

Even I don't have the impaired judgment though I am such a fan now after faithfully wearing them to note that these are... less than pretty.

*sigh*

(No offense to you if you own these or if you like these. Seriously.)

What to do what to do.

I just don't know.

Have you thought about the ballet flat style of Crocs? I think they're called 'Primas', and I know Nordstrom had them over the summer...a little less clunky, but I'd venture to guess they're equally comfy.

I have considered those. I like them. But here's the thing about those - they have few (maybe even none!) holes for ventilation! And the thing that I cannot deny is that (eww) my feet easily get hot and (yech) sweaty. I think perhaps just for the day though, they could work! Thanks!
