I'm not sure exactly why, but I feel a very special sort of excitement when I look at white shoes these days. There's something very touching to think that these shoes will gently hug a bride's feet as she happily walks towards her new life... isn't that so?
By the way, yes, these are the shoes I plan to wear at the wedding. My dear chatan found them very unexpectedly in a small shop where I wouldn't even think to look, and I love them! They have a clean and simple look which will go perfectly with my dress, I think. Also, the heels aren't too high or too thin, which is important because I will need to be strong enough for much, much dancing!
... Right now, I'm dancing with the joy of thinking I won't have to subscribe to Shadchanet (or other websites for Orthodox Jewish singles) again. There will be no more strained conversations on first dates, over cups of cold coffee. I'm dancing with delighted excitement. Still in my slippers, though. ;)
