Style Guide: Picking the Perfect Wedding Shoes
Whether you want to feel like a fairy princess, a statuesque goddess, or a chic modern style icon, your wedding day shoes are an important part of your bridal look. There are no rules to the perfect wedding shoe so focus on comfort, creativity, and adding your own personal touch to keep your feet happy and you feeling beautiful!
All About Comfort
One of the most important aspects of your wedding day is your comfort. If you love pumps and wear them every day, then absolutely rock them on your special day! Not used to walking in heels for hours on end? Maybe consider having heels for only the pictures but wear a flat for the ceremony and reception.
If you feel like flats are not wedding attire think again…no matter your height, a flat shoe can be just as cute and as elegant as a heel! If you are having a more casual or funky wedding, go for a sneaker or a charming beachy sandal, or if you are having a more traditional or lavish event, try a luxurious fabric like leather, silk, or velvet. The options are endless–don’t feel confined to having to wear a heel if you do not want to!
Color is Classic
A pop of color will always turn heads! If you are a fan of the idea of a colorful shoe, but already have another idea for your “something blue”, take a look at your wedding decor colors. Matching your shoes to the color of your wedding could be a unique way to brighten up your ensemble.
A colorful shoe will make for some stunning photos and rousing reactions on your guest faces when they see them for the first time. Have a dress with an ankle-length or higher hemline? Your shoes will be on display, so make it memorable. Matching your shoes to your bouquet would be an absolute showstopper!
Depending on your gown, you could go for a shoe that compliments your gown’s style, or you could for a shoe that will turn heads and catch eyes! If you have a simple, timeless dress, you could opt for a sparkly shoe, or maybe if you are feeling adventurous go for a shoe with feathers! (Love feather? See our ALESSANDRA and ANTONIA gowns!)
Are you wearing a lace or embellished dress? If there is room in the budget, consider having a local shoemaker add the matching elements from your gown on your shoes for amazing subtle detail. An added bonus–you’ll have shoes that matched your wedding style to wear on your future anniversaries!
