Considered the practicalities? Now it’s time for style and selecting your wedding shoes!
Our Top Tips Tuesday a few weeks ago was all about shoes. (We know, it’s a tough job to research wedding shoes! If you missed it, simply click here.) We gave you all the practical tips for choosing your shoe style: does your venue allow heels? Will you be walking on grassy areas? Going to tower over your groom?
Now the practicalities are out of the way, it’s time to focus on style! Whether high glamour, classic combination or something a little quirky, this week’s Top Tips Tuesday takes you through our five favourite footwear styles to walk down the aisle in.
It’s a bridal classic, and it’s easy to see why. Simple and elegant, the peep toe shoe has a perfect blend of comfort and style in mind. For a bride looking for the glamour of heel, with a softer cushioning under-foot, the peep toe screams bridal style. Just make sure you go for a gorgeous pedicure to match!
Never seen in flats? Feel a peep toe is just too safe? You’re the bride that chooses statement elegance with a gorgeous high-heel. Go all-out glamour with an embellished sandal that is simple striking: we adore this pair we spotted on My Story Wedding. Dancing the night away? If you feel your feet may long for a little more comfort, choose a pair of glamourous evening flats; it’s the perfect excuse to shop for a second pair of wedding shoes!
You might be looking for flats for the evening do, once your feet are tired of your heels. Or, you may simple not be able to bear the thought of standing on a cold, stone floor in skyscrapers! Flats are so much more than basic ballet pumps. Embellished, elegant choices give you the glamorous look that keeps your feet comfortable all day long.
Fancy making more of a statement? We love the idea of a brightly-coloured wedding shoe. For shorter dress styles, it’s the perfect chance to show off your shoes with a bold injection of your colour scheme into your outfit. Why not involve your bridesmaids too? We love this idea from Weddings Online, where each bridesmaid has a different colour shoe matching their individual bouquets.
Jeans and trainers kind of girl? Hate the discomfort of a heeled-shoe? Or simply wanting to make a quirky statement? Choose a comfy pair of Converse. Go bold, or subtle (like the bride below, who’s stuck with an almost-white pair and let her bridesmaids stand out in colour).
Which type of wedding shoe have you chosen? Going for glamour in high heels or quirky comfort in Converse? We’d love you to show us the shoes you’ve picked for you and your bridesmaids. Send them over to us to be featured on the blog: firstname.lastname@example.org.
