Hello friends, as many of you noticed, I paused my ‘Wedding Wednesday’ blog posts for a variety of reasons that I will share in a separate post very soon. But for now, let’s jump to a topic that I am excited to talk with you all today, a bride’s glass slippers.
Bridal shoes are one of the most important accessories that a bride wears on her special day. When looking for the perfect wedding-day shoe there are three main factors to consider: the style of the venue, your wedding theme, and the height of the shoe.
Let’s begin with the style of the wedding venue. What vision do you have for your special day? Are you hosting a boho-chic wedding or a black-tie reception? Will your wedding take place on the beach? If so, sandals, wedges, or flats will likely be the safest footwear for you to wear. These Ivory Gigi Pointed Toe Flats are a perfect choice, and you could throw on some killer heels once the ceremony is over, and prior to the first dance.[Shop shoes here]
If your wedding will take place at an indoor venue, almost every style will work for you. Be familiar with the grounds or terrains that you will be walking on, whether there are rocks or the potential for mud if it rains. Here are my favorite bridal shoes: Love Metallic Glitter Pumps, Satin Bow Slingback Heels (so lovely!), and Brooch Detail Pumps (so perfect!).
Have you defined what your wedding theme will be? The wedding shoes you say yes to should complement your gown. Pay attention to the details on your gown (pearls, tulle, satin, lace, floral details, etc…) so that the same details can be echoed in your bridal footwear. If you are into all things vintage, take a look at these elegant Desdemona Embellished Pumps (I love them!). Yet don’t stress about matching your gown to your footwear, modern brides often opt for making a bold statement with a bright pair of shoes, or matching their shoes to their bridal bouquet.
While style is important, being uncomfortable on your wedding day is probably not worth it. You want to be able to walk as gracefully as possible down the aisle, so if you opt for a higher heel be sure to do a practice run around the house! Consider wearing shoes that have a little bit of platform at the front, as this will relieve some pressure from the ball of your foot. Remember that you will be standing the majority of the day – comfortable shoes are definitely necessary.
Finally, when choosing the perfect pair of wedding-day shoes, consider whether you will want to wear your bridal shoes beyond your wedding. Your wedding day might just be the one day in your life to splurge!
Lots of love,
