Although the wedding dress will be your biggest purchase for your wedding ensemble, don’t forget about the other details and accessories. Your second biggest concern should be your bridal shoes. Choosing the right bridal shoes could very well make or break the day for you.
There are many things to consider, and bridal shoes come in an array of colors, styles, sizes, height, and more. It can be easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of designs that are available either online or in boutiques. Below are a few simple tips to keep in mind for selecting the right bridal shoe for your wedding day. Follow this advice and you will be just fine!
Comfort always comes first!
Stylish shoes and trendy shoes can also be uncomfortable shoes. You really need to think about the fact that you will be wearing these shoes for a very long time. So, don’t make the mistake of going for a shoe just because you like the look of it. Make sure you try it on and that it feels good on your foot. Remember, you will be standing a lot, and let’s not forget about dancing the night away.
You can find lovely, comfy shoes without breaking the bank. Designer shoes do not always equal the prettiest shoes, and surely not the most comfortable. Furthermore, when bridal shoe shopping, be sure to wear your stockings whatever you have chosen as your dress socks while trying on different wedding shoes.
Bring a swatch of your wedding dress!
If you want your shoe to perfectly match the color of your wedding gown, be sure and bring a swatch. You should be able to get one whether your have ordered your dress online or bought it in a shop. This is the only way to ensure that the match is flawless. Photos simply won’t do.
High heels bridal or flats?
In the past brides always went for a high heel. That is not the case these days. You have the option of buying stunning flat shoes that are really trendy. For example, if your groom is a great deal taller than you, the heel might be a good choice. However, if you are close in height, you might want to think about choosing a flat shoe. Most men don’t want to look shorter than their bride to be! If you are not used to walking in heels and feel uncomfortable, perhaps practice walking around your house in heels to see if it is something you can get used to. Then, you can make the right decision.
