    OMG ! I am in love with a pair of Benjamin Adams Bridal shoes..............they cost £299 though !!

    What shoes are you ladies having ? I have a pair of Rainbow Club ones but they are no where near as special as the Benjamin Adams ones, and I don't know where to start with buttering up H2B so he lets me have them lol

    Oh my, i have just spent £299 on a pair of Benjamin Adams shoes today. They are called Charlize - pics on my profile. H2b was fine about me getting them but i had a bit of a panic after as thought 'oh my god i have just spent £300 on shoes!!!!!' I love them but still feel guilty about the splurge, having said that my dress was £660 so the dress and shoes are still under £1000 and i had originally thought my dress would cost more. Which were the ones you liked? xx

    wow that is a lot of money. the most i have spent on shoes is £130!

    i have 2 pairs of wedding shoes. both are faith shoes. one are court ivory peeptoe and the other are silver sandals. they were in the sale when i bought them and got them both for under £60 if i remember rightly!

    should have been £70 and £90 each! xx

    It is a lot of money, probably why i have had my little panic. But i have always loved shoes and never spent more than about £50 on a pair but figured my wedding day is the one day i could have a 'posh pair' i haven't been able to find any others i liked and they are really cushioned and comfy. Seriously though there is no really justifying that amount, i wanted them so i got them! i'm used to spending all the money on the kids so very extravagant for me!! lol x

    They are gorgeous as well and if you have the money then why not. We had to limit our budget to very low amounts as we are skint but I know if we had more money I would have got something like that, I had to bling my own shoes and I love them but I think I would have loved yours more lol

    It's the Charlize ones that I want, The only way i'll get round it i think, is to sell a pair of my Jimmy Choo's or Karen Millen shoes, that way I wont have to spend too much more, they are gorgeous though !

    Kerry, NiK,

    They are stunning - I adore them.

    I have given up smoking and putting the money in a pot for my Gina shoes which were £500!! H2B made a joke that the money would be better spent on a Tag watch for him, so I am giving up my dream shoes for his surprise gift. I do think with some rejigging of the budget though that these would be a sensible purchase, no one will miss their dinner ; )

    Good find girls xxx

    I love them and, if you can afford them, I think you should go for it.

    I wanted strassed Christian Louboutins at £2k but instead got a gorgeous pair of shoes from UpperStreet and I'm in the process of covering them with Swarovski crystals myself. Shoes (£235 + £9 [P&P] - £100 [discount voucher] = £144) and crystals (£190 so far, but I'm going to have to buy more of one colour at around £60) which will be about £400 or so altogether (and would have been more if it weren't for the discount voucher).

    So all in all £300 for Benjamin Adams' Swarovski crystal encrusted shoes isn't that bad!

    My first pair were £25 and my second pair (the ones that match my BMs) were £12. feeling a tad left out now, might have to butter up the other half for a pair of Jimmy Choos or something :-)

    I'd originally asked Grant to propose with a pair of beautiful shoes, but he was out of work when he proposed so couldn't afford to. I'm hoping that a beautiful pair of shoes are part of my wedding gift from him.
