Dear God, why? Why is this a thing? Which bride actually wants to wear this? How can we stop this monstrosity? Please, save us.
When a woman is planning their big day, you better believe they make sure every little detail is in place. A wedding (usually) only happens once in your lifetime, so you've got to ensure everything is taken care. While the venue and catering, among other things, are all very important decisions to make, there's one thing a bride simply does not compromise on — their outfit. Sure, you'll get your perfect wedding gown and alter it to perfection, but what good is a beautifully-fitted wedding dress without some glam accessories to match? Of course, you'll have your rock (wink, wink) at the end of the day, but there's something that definitely should not be overlooked. And that would be...your shoes.
Now, in my opinion, at least, there are two kinds of brides. The first is one who believes that looking drop-dead-gorgeous is the penultimate goal no matter how uncomfortable they may be. The second kind, however, is more laid back and cares more about comfort and enjoying one of the most important days of their lives by dancing the night away. For the latter type of bride, the Etsy store Princess Pumps has the perfect accessory in mind: White, sparkly Crocs.
That means you remain super festive, but also super comfortable. The Etsy store has a lot of options, so no matter what shade of white your wedding gown is, there's a pair that's made just for you. Apparently, the story even has a bridal favorite, aptly named, you guessed it, "Bridal Favorite." The product description reads, "Looking for unbeatable comfort with a hint of sparkle? Enjoy these flashy crystal sequin Crocs at home or work! You won't find these in stores!" That's how special these Crocs are.
The shoes are authentic Crocs, stylized with a crap-load of sequins that cover almost the entirety of the shoe. Bar the straps of the Crocs, it's really sequin city down there. Come to think of it, these are probably the best pair of shoes to throw on if you're planning a beach wedding. This way, you won't sink into the sand like you would with a pair of stilettos. However, this pair of wedding shoes will set you back quite the pretty penny. One pair costs about £80 or about $104.
Now, potential brides set to walk down the aisle soon will know that this actually isn't too bad a price for wedding shoes. After all, brides have been known to spend upwards of hundreds of dollars on a pair of shoes that they likely will never wear again. But with shoes like these white, sparkly Crocs, the opportunities to wear them again are ENDLESS! To the beach, the lake, the river, the pool, the endless ocean of tears you're bound to cry knowing that you wore Crocs to your actual wedding day, or you know, any other water body...
Nonetheless, if Crocs aren't quite your thing, Princess Pumps has a bunch of other options for the spunky, quirky bride. There are sequined sneakers (from Converse to Vans to Adidas), ballet flats (even ones with tie-up laces!), and even kitten heels. And customers have been raving about the store's products.

These guys are super profesh and obviously love what they do and you can see it in the craftsmanship of their work. I don’t want to take them off. I’m definitely a princess!"
