"Momma always says there’s an awful lot you can tell about a person by their shoes. Where they’re going. Where they’ve been." - Forrest Gump

We all love shoes, we love to shop for them, we love to wear them, we love how they make us girls feel, heck, we even love to organize them (I have mine in individual clear boxes with a photo of the shoe on the outside of the box).
One of the most important shoes we are ever going to wear are our wedding shoes. The shoes that carry us down the aisle to our future.

We found a unique website that allows you to get your wedding shoes hand painted and personalized by Deborah, the artist and mind behind Figgie Shoes.

There are three main options for personalization- basic black and white (including 12 personalized items or text), colour and/or ink, jewels, metallics, sequins, feathers, rhinestones etc. Popular personalization items include: wedding date, portrait of the bride and groom, school emblems, meaningful geographical locations, your wedding vows, words from a love letter you received from our sweetheart...basically anything you want to express about your relationship's personal history for your wedding day.

The company recommends you buy your own shoes to ensure they fit perfectly before the personalization process begins, and that process is a minimum of 6 weeks. So this should be something you plan for well in advance.
By the way, this process isn't just for bridal shoes, this art can be produced on any shoe for any reason. So not only can it be a cute gift for your bridesmaids (flats for all of them for the wedding reception and for casual wear after the wedding), it can also be just for any shoe you want to express yourself on.
