I've found myself in a recently quandry which I never thought that I would be in.
As readers of my rambling rants about my pet peeves may know, I'm not a huge fan of visible feet in inappropriate situations.
I don't wear strappy sandals in the office, even on the hottest days of the year,
I think seeing toes after Veteran's Day is abominable,
In church, I think God should be looking at your pious face, not your chipped pedicure,
I don't wear peep toes to bars for fear of being stepped on.
Basically, I have a lot of rules regarding revealing footwear. But I didn't really think twice about wanting to wear open toed shoes on my wedding day.
I had even picked a front runner in the Great Wedding Shoe Hunt:
Until my mother heard from a friend who heard from another friend who heard from someone at Kleinfeld's, the bridal mecca, that you simply do NOT wear open toed shoes as the sight of toes will just destroy everything you have worked so hard to do to plan the perfect wedding.
(Actually, I think there was something about it destroying the "line" of the dress and that everyone will just be staring at your toes)
When my mother relayed this information, I brushed it off, saying that I had seen that horrible show about Kleinfeld's and I was not about to take their advice.
Then she called me at work today and told me that a salesperson at a shoe store, which has earned my utmost respect and admiration, also expressed shock that I would wear open toed shoes to become a wife.
Am I missing something here?
I'm getting married in springtime.
I won't be in a church or other such religious establishment.
I promise to have a pretty pedicure.
Is it wrong to wear open toed shoes?
