Best Wedding Shoes to Complete your Bridal Look and A few Tips

You bought your wedding dress and have a sense of relief that you finally found the one! Whether it was the first one you tried on (as it is for 40% of brides) or you feel like you tried everything on in every store. I’ll be honest I fell in love with the first dress I tried on I was convinced it was for me, but I didn’t end up going with that one. Once the dress was ordered and I went home, the list of to dos changed. I now needed to work on my jewelry, under garments and what I was really more excited about an excuse to buy shoes. If your like me you love any reason to buy a new pair of shoes. Your wedding shoes are just one piece that helps complete your bridal look but they also need to represent who you are and last you the whole day. No one needs a wobbly brides walking down the aisle. Your shoes need to support you all of the way through your first dance and be shoes you love in pictures for the rest of your life. We have a few tips for you and a list of our favorite wedding shoes to complete your bridal look.

  1. Break them in- Once you buy your hoes be sure to walk around your house and break them in. Walking around your house allows you to break them in and determine if there will be any unwanted blisters but will also allow you not to scratch them up before pictures.

  2. Be true to you- If your don’t normally wear heels, then don’t wear them on your wedding day. If you wear lots of mules, then get a pair for your wedding day.

  3. Consider your dress- Remember your dress? Do you know what the lining of your dress is? If there are lots of soft layers of tulle you won’t want a shoe that is overly embellished toe because it will just get caught in the fabric and trip you up.

  4. Purchase before your fitting- Simple enough right! Find your wedding shoe before you go in for your fittings. If you are getting your dressed altered at all you will want to bring your shoes with you. Your seamstress will want to make sure the dress is the right length but you also stand different in heels and your posture will change which effects your alterations.

Booties

I love the ideas of staying true to who you are regardless of the occasion or season. Bootes offer a great alternative to the traditional pump or sandal. Who wouldn’t want to rock theses silver boots at their winter wedding?
