"My dress is all vintage lace with varying shades of off- white, cream (some yellow tones as well) and made in a very 1920’s style. My future hubby is about 5’8 and im 5’7 so I dont want to tower over him. I’m looking for a retro but NOT clunky shoe with no more than a 2" heel. Does such a thing exist? I’m willing to go gold or another color that you think would fit the dress I described, I’m not too conservative so I’m willing to have fun with my footwear (but sexy is always best) Thank you so much in advance for taking the time!"

Such a thing does exist and shoes with low heels aren’t just for taller brides but also for women who want to be able to stand up all day without feeling the burn. This ivory silk and kid leather pair – ‘Paget’ by Benjamin Adams – would look great with most styles of dress and can be found at Paradox London.
Should you opt for a mule this ivory satin pair by Pink has a low heel and a sparkly clasp. ‘Pout’ is £45
These cream open toe sandals may be slightly larger than you asked for at 2 1/2 inches but the price is a winner. £19.99 at Viva La Diva
I’m assuming you are American so I’m moving on to some transatlantic footwear now. Bridal People have a huge range of shoes and plenty in the low heeled styles too including mules, ballet flats, strappy sandals and classic styles. This ‘Colby’ white satin pump is $43.25
The 1 1/4" inch squeare heeled pump here should match most dresses and is available in white or ivory satin. $48 Magic Bridal Shoes
Of course, if money is no object, opt for a pair of pleated vamp pumps in white satin by Kate Spade, $250 at Neiman Marcus
