You have chosen a wedding dress, veil and gloves; you already know what type of wedding bouquet you will have and what about the shoes? Have you already chosen the shoes that you are going to wear? Shoes are an equally important part of the bride’s styling. Some brides choose sandals and other choose classic shoes, some opt for flip-flops while others choose cowboy boots or sneakers. Selecting your wedding shoes does not have to be stressful, but when choosing the bridal shoes you must have certain things in mind.
First and foremost, shoes must be comfortable. Of course, high heels are beautiful and perfectly suit your wedding dress, but are you willing to spend all day and all night wearing them? Hanging out with friends and family is a little more important than balancing on high heels. If you are not used to high heels, choose the appropriate colored ballet shoes or flat sandals. Do a combination of shoes: for photos and the ceremony select the perfect high-heeled shoe, and later, for the reception and dancing, choose beautiful but comfortable sandals.
It would be best to wear your chosen wedding shoes at home before the big day in order to avoid painful blisters on the night. Do not forget the soft silicone pads that you can buy in any drugstore; they will help your feet to withstand the pain of being on your feet the whole day and enable you to dance the night away with your husband and loved ones.
It is very important that you choose the right shoe material. Currently there is a large variety of different materials such as satin, silk, leather, velvet, etc. available. Not only is the material of the shoes a reflection of your personality, but they must match the style of the wedding you have in mind. For example, a silk ballet shoe is not suitable for wet weather or for walking on wet grass while closed leather shoes are not suitable for hot summer days.
Match the shoes with the dress
Remember your dress. Do not fall in love with a certain pair of shoes before you choose the dress. The dress is what first attracts everyone’s attention, more than the shoes, so it is more important to combine the shoes with the dress, not the other way around. There are hundreds of types of wedding shoes that match the different seasons, wedding dresses and the individual personality of the brides who will wear them. Bearing this in mind be ready to select your perfect combination.
Choosing the color and the type of bridal shoes
The most desirable would be that the shoes are white, but if you combine various silver or gold jewelry and fashion accessories with a white dress, shoes and color can follow the details. Do not forget that the shoes must be incorporated into the overall look of the bride and the color and shape should be appropriate to the style of wedding dress.
• Classic shoes
Classic shoes are always a good choice for special occasions including weddings, especially if you have some accessories that will accentuate the elegance.
• Satin and laced shoes
Shoes with lace and satin material that give the impression of elegance may seem like a very good idea, but they can be a big mistake. If you want to wear these types of shoes you have to try to find the ones that really match your dress.
Regardless of whether you choose women’s sandals, modern or classic, shoes will need to be beautiful and comfortable in order to freely enjoy every moment of the best day of your life. And do not assume that you will learn to walk in high heels when buying shoes, you already need to know how.
