Congratulations! You’ve found your wedding dress! The one that makes you feel like you’ve always imagined on your wedding day. Now, let’s talk about your wedding shoes! Here’s to that Cinderella moment when the glass slipper fits to perfection. This time it’s the perfect fit to complete your dress.
If you’re anything like me, I LOVE shoes! Like seriously…it’s love. They say that money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you shoes. So there’s that.
So, let’s chat about finding the perfect wedding shoes for the bride.
The wedding shoes should complement the dress in perfect harmony. It’s like the icing on the cake. Are you wearing an elegant, understated dress? In this case, consider adding a pop of glitz, jewels, pearls, etc. on the shoe. On the other hand, is your wedding dress full of details, rhinestones, crystals, and beads? This might be the time to wear a simple shoe and not compete with the dress.
Is your wedding dress modern, vintage, classic, or boho? Is your dress short or long? What color is your dress? Knowing the answers here will lead you to the perfect pair of wedding shoes.
Brides today are always looking for a way to make their personalities shine through. Consider choosing a colored or patterned shoe for some fun details. How about making your something blue a pair of fun shoes?
Are you getting married on the beach? A pair of strappy and sparkly sandals would be perfect. Are you going to the chapel? A classic understated kitten-heeled silk pump might be the perfect pair. Maybe a afternoon garden wedding is your style. A pair of dainty chiffon embellished shoes give that fresh feeling.
There’s no doubt you’ll be on your feet all day. And, while no shoes are ever comfortable all day, some may work better than others. If you aren’t used to wearing heels, try a pair with an ankle strap for added support. Block heels and wedges also tend to offer more support and comfort for long hours on your feet. If you opt for heels for your big day, having a second, flat pair on hand for the reception is always a good idea.
