Choosing The Perfect Wedding Shoes

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so it’s natural you want to look and feel your very best. One of the hardest parts of planning for your wedding is finding the perfect outfit. Not only do you have to find a dress which makes you feel unique and special, you also have to invest in the perfect pair of shoes to go with your dress. The task of finding wedding shoes to wear can prove daunting to even the most avid shopper, but there are ways to make it a little easier if you take time to consider exactly what you are looking for.

The Right Heel Height:
If you’re lacking a bit in the height department, you may want to consider wedding shoes which give you a bit of a boost. You don’t want heels which are so high that you are likely to fall over before saying your vows, but the extra height will give you a confidence boost. You need to remember that you are going to be wearing your wedding shoes for the whole day, so they should be as comfortable as possible. Likewise if you’re a tall bride, don’t be afraid to choose smaller heels or even flats. Choose the right height for you.

Colour Co-ordination:
You don’t need to avoid colour just because you’re opting for a classic white or ivory wedding dress. A hint of colour in a more natural tone will look wonderful and if you’re a little more daring, then a vivid colour matching your bouquet or colour theme will look incredible. They’ll hardly be seen underneath your long gown, but when they do peep out, they’ll add be a real surprise and wonderful focal point for your whole look.

Wedding Shoe Styles You Love:
It’s your day and you want to feel good, so choose a style of wedding shoes which you really love. You should make sure you have plenty of time to carefully select the right style for you, instead of choosing the first pair you find. There is a wide selection of wedding shoes around in all sorts of shapes, sizes and tones, so you can afford to take your time and be a bit fussy with your choice. You will need to wear them on the day and look at them for years to come in photos, so choose a style which really stands out to you, and perhaps something you can wear again.

Stretch Your Bridal Shoe Budget:
Your wedding day is a one off occasion (hopefully), so give yourself a healthy budget to work with for your wedding shoes. It is the one time you can really go to town and treat yourself so make the most of it while you can. A lot of people will spend a fortune on their wedding dress and forget all about their wedding shoes, but these are part of your complete outfit. It isn’t to say that your perfect pair will be really expensive, but don’t be afraid to splash your cash if you find that this is the case. It is all about what makes you feel special and at your best, so take time to consider what you really want and don’t just listen to other people and stick to tradition.
