Awaiting the entire batch of photos from the wedding photographer we engaged on the day, but here are a few they have kindly rushed out for me!
First look at the dress and shoes. I actually had no idea what shoes to wear with the wedding gown. I had initially notions of wearing sparkly sneakers or striking red ones slippers (ala Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz’, one of my favourite childhood stories!), but not only did Groomzilla seem extremely underwhelmed by the idea (to put it mildly), I also had trouble finding ones in these styles that I liked.
The period leading up to the wedding was extremely busy and stressful – work kept me busy and the preparations and tiny details seemed never-ending! There was hence no time to properly look for shoes; I just glanced into shop windows every time I found myself walking through malls. My dress designers were going mad as up to a week before the wedding, they weren’t sure what length to cut the dresses to as I had no idea what shoes, and more importantly, how high or low heels (or flats, as in the sneaker idea), I was planning to wear!
The good people from Bless Inc Asia Pte Ltd reached out to me, and like the quintessential fairy godmother in fairy-tales (how appropriate, given my ‘Dorothy’ aspirations), they presented me with the perfect solution! I love these Melissa Ultragirl + J. Maskrey flats with Swarovski crystal appliations – true to promise, they really made me feel like a modern-day Cinderella!
The icing on the cake? They are not only pretty as hell, they are super comfy!
Oh, and Groomzilla approved. 😉
