Rocket Dog wedding shoes? Surely not!

Yesterday I decided to step up the wedding shoe search, after all my wedding is now less than 8 weeks away. So I recruited one of my bridesmaids, and we started our search in wedding dress shops, but very little there. Then went to trusty Debenhams, so fruitful last week for bridesmaid shoes, but alas this week it failed us.
But then, it was like a lightbulb went on, lets check out Schuh!. Now of course, there was the problem that Schuh is a little too trendy perhaps for the traditional wedding, but in we walked having seen a few ivory satin type shoes displayed in the window, determined to give it the benefit of the doubt.
A very harrased looking assistant brought shoe after shoe for me. They pinched, the squeezed, and quite frankly, some of the looked awful. But then I saw them... The perfect little peep toe, with ruffled ivory material.

Quite the 1940s glam shoe. So barefoot, I walked over and picked them up and saw, to my absolute astonishment and delight, that they were in fact Rocket Dogs. Now anyone who knows me, will know that I have a slight obsession with Rocket Dog shoes. I regularly wear their boots and have a number of pumps (that I update every year). I couldn't believe my luck. I slipped my foot inside, and felt the divine comfort that is most definitely a Rocket Dog trait. They looked gorgeous. The only problem is that the sole is black. And now I'm worried that they will stick out like a sore thumb. And there is my dilemma. Advice? Help? All gratefully received...


  1. 'Rock it' down the aisle in the 'Rocket Dogs'. Your 'very helpful shoe shopping companion/bridemaid' thinks you need to try the shoes against your dress or lots of white/cream fabric to see if the black soles stand out too much. They are lovely and hollywood glam is all about the black and white but at the same time you do want the shoes that 'are just right!' x

  2. I have brought them! So excited. Going to pick them up on Thursday :) x
