I recently ran into a bride with a sticky fashion dilemma: The white heels she ordered to arrive in time for her wedding didn't, and she wanted to wear a tan version as an alternative. I say it's a great idea to go with a shoe that doesn't match your gown, but a tan or beige one is too close to your gown's color and comes off looking like you missed the fashion mark. Try a distinctly different hue—a soft pink would look lovely, or let your shoes be your something blue. Another option is metallic shoes (like the ones modeled by our bride below), which are as versatile as a neutral but add a bit of shine to your ensemble. White is always in season, but if you choose a more colorful pair of shoes you'll get through your wedding with flying colors.
