We're aiming for an atypical wedding with a few familiar aspects however, we're having a fantastic time putting it all together so it comes off without any hiccups. This is where you gals come in. I am stuck. On what, you ask? SHOES. I can't commit to a pair of shoes. Here's my dress that I'm about to order this weekend; I'm going to order it in an off-white (not in the colour shown). No veil. No other jewellery other than my wedding band. But I'll have some glam make-up done with a deep, burgundy lip. My dream shoes would be a burgundy pump or some type of heel. I definitely need a chunky heel vs a stiletto - our reception is a cocktail-type party where I'll be doing lots of standing, walking, etc. And my beloved and I are ballroom dancers who have an amazing wedding dance to showcase -I need something that isn't so high I feel like I'm on stilts! Last challenge - I live in Northern Canada. Extreme northern Canada. Shipping to Canada is paramount! Thanks, gals! Love ya!"
Live it up, miss lady. My best friend just got married in not-your-average-wedding shoe, and I've got to say, it stole the show. So enjoy yourself and your burgundy beauties!!

Magzilla here: When I'm not busy eating my way to the bottom of a ginger candy bag, I'm tweezing my eyebrows. I prefer the hard core body modification scene, but can also appreciate a ruffle or bow when I see one. Beauty and barrels of maternity/kid crap are my specialties. When you need help finding the right shade of eyeliner to match that new shade of "I haven't slept in days" tint your skin gets after a baby or four, call on me. Loudly.
