    Will you wear these shoes at any other time?
    I was thinking a white open toe with Roman laces/straps to mid calf
    You can wear white with almost anything.
    I thought I'd get in touch with my female side and comment .......:wub::whistle:
    I saw a woman wear what I described and they looked Marvelous on her with a dress like you pictured
    These are not the shoes I was thinking about
    but the toe is what I was thing of

    but then I am a guy and we only need 3 pairs shoes anything that comes up and they last and are still in style for decades

    Straps to mid calf? No Dave...she's going to a wedding, not the Coliseum.

    The mint color of these might go with the dress perfectly:

    White strappy is nice, but go with nothing higher than an ankle strap, or a sling back...

    I like these in white:

    I like these peep toes:

    These have good reviews, the price is a steal...a bit lower heel than I wear: (heck for the price, you can get them WITH the shoes above and wear these in the summer for nights out...)

    Pick yourself up a white pashmina type wrap in case it's chilly...

    I love that first link czacza posted! Those are super cute.

    Oh and as for a shrug or sweater, I wouldn't pick white. White sweaters make me think of church sweaters.

    Sidenote- what is up with the sneaker wedge trend? Ick! And if you are hiding the fact that they are heels/wedges, WHY WEAR HEELS/WEDGES? Get an actual pair of tennis shoes and have happy feet. (Plus not look ridiculous!)

    If I was wearing that dress (which is very pretty by the way), I would wear a white pair of ballet flats. Especially if the dress came above my knee, but that is my style. For cover up, I would just wear a lightweight sweater. I am not coordinated enough for a scarf even though I love the look of them.

    Cute dress. I just wanted to add that I would NOT go with a mint shoe if it's a mint dress. It's definitely not current to go that matchy. Definitely not straps going up the calf either... With that color, I would probably wear a nude heel. Some examples/inspiration:

    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/fergaliciou...ategory=cat20006&activeCats=cat10006,cat20006

    lower heel if you like: http://www.dsw.com/shoe/zigi+soho+s...dsw12prod4180423&activeCats=cat10006,cat20006

    http://www.dsw.com/shoe/michael+ant...mp?prodId=252517&activeCats=cat10006,cat20006

    These are cream but I think they'd be gorgeous, especially if you'll be on grass: http://www.dsw.com/shoe/dolce+by+mo...mp?prodId=272462&activeCats=cat10006,cat20006

    Weddings are one of the few times where I'll wear really high heels! :) If you do end up wanting to go metallic with the shoes or just add accessories, gold with mint is lovely. I think it's a way better match than silver, and much more modern. If you want a brighter color, anything in the orange to coral family could look great. I could see a mint dress with coral pumps and a black cardigan or jacket if it got cold. Yowza! A coral tone could also work well for a coverup of some sort. The colors really do go beautifully together, and are both very trendy but not so much that you'll look ridiculous in photos later on.

    I would wear white shoes. I really like the last (cheap) link that czacza posted!
