Wedding Shoes

From Cinderella to Carrie Bradshaw, women’s liaison with shoes is indeed legendary. Footwear has forever seduced every woman’s imagination and has been rightly hailed by the fashionistas as the perfect way to step-up their ‘hot’ quotient. A shoe-lover had once said that nothing turns on a lass more than a pair of Jimmy Choo. Shoes are indeed the most coveted fetish for most women, and weddings are indeed occasions where the pretty ladies can afford to splurge on their shoe-fetish sans any qualms. From open toe mules to bejeweled stilettos to Swarovski studded kitten heels, weddings are occasions that call for shoe splurges. However, before you slip your toes and rest your feet on the heels and walk away in your enviable pair of Diana Lynn, just make sure that the footwear you choose is worth the money you spend. Heels and comfort do not go hand in hand. So before you blow a fortune in grabbing a pair of designer shoes, just trail down the following tips and know which shoe fits your feet and budget the best. For more on this, read on.
How To Choose Your Wedding Shoes
  • After hours of hunting for trousseaus and tons of trial runs, you have finally managed to pick that perfect bridal trousseau and now it is time to shop for that perfect pair of stilettos. However, before you splurge on a Giuseppe Zanotti or a Jimmy Choo, just make sure that the footwear you chose is comfy enough to help you spade through the day without hurting your feet. Whether you wish to go with classic sling backs, fashionable peep-toes, or dressy stilettos, always make it a point to buy footwear that come with special cushioned padding or gel pads that will help you walk down the aisle without leaving your feet feeling sore.
  • If a high heeled wedding is what you have in mind, then you can happily dump the pumps for a seductive open toe or a gorgeous looking jeweled T-strap. Indulgence or necessity, splurging on a sexy pair of kitten heels or stilettos won’t just get you high on fashion, but will also save your day if your groom happens to be 6 feet tall.  All said and done, high heels aren’t very easy on the feet. So, if you don’t really wish to walk down the aisle with aching feet, you can happily opt for medium heels instead.
  • A wedding is the moment of a lifetime and you can’t really expect to go wrong with it! Shoes are indeed the high-end treats for your D-day. That’s why it’s important to get your shoes right. Theme your shoe with your wedding couture. Use material swatches to match the colors. If you are going to wear a pristine white wedding gown, then opt for a pale pearl shoe. On the contrary, if you have an off-white gown at hand, then pearl or ivory colored footwear would best complement it.
  • You don’t really have to be Carrie Bradshaw to be mad about shoes. Your wedding is the perfect excuse to splurge on your shoe-fetish. Flashy peep-toes for your hen’s night, gorgeous stilettos for the D-day, pretty ballet flats for the reception and sexy flip flops for the honeymoon. However, before you give in big time to your shoes, don’t forget to pamper your tootsies with a lovely pedicure. Your feet will love you for this.
  • Another thing that you should keep in mind while picking your bridal footwear is that they should suit your surroundings well. Flats and wedges are good if you have an outdoor reception. Strappy sandals and medium heels are best for beach weddings as they will help you walk elegantly on the soft sand without sinking your heels. If you plan to have a church or indoor wedding, make sure you check the flooring in advance or else you may end up sliding down the aisle as some floors can be extremely slippery. In that case, it is best to opt for soles that don’t skid.
Your wedding is the occasion to strut your stuff. So, make sure you pull off an elegant show with your shoes. These tips on how to choose your wedding shoes should be of some help when out to pick perfect footwear for your D-day.
