Shoes have always been the main accessory for a woman. Wearing the right pair of shoes is what a woman would desire the most on her big day. As a famous quote goes, “Funny that a pair of really nice shoes makes us feel good in our heads — at the extreme opposite end of our bodies.” – Levende Waters.
You might have fallen in love with a pair of skyscraper heels but remember you’re going to have to walk down the aisle in them, stand for photographs in them, maybe dance in them and walk around all day. Wobbling around on heels that are too high isn’t a good look and you don’t want to catch a high spiky heel in your dress either.
This blog has been divided into a few points for the purpose of helping women choose the perfect shoes for their wedding day:
Take some measurements
Remember your dressmaker will need to know the exact height of your shoes for your final fitting so she can adjust your dress accordingly. You’ll need to be wearing your shoes at this fitting so when you order them check how long it will take for them to be delivered so you don’t have any last minute panics.
Consider getting your shoes dyed
Match your theme
Think about the type of wedding you’re having. If you’re planning a country garden wedding where you’ll spend a lot of time outdoors then wedges or flats would be a good option, or wear heel protectors.
On the same note talk to you venue about your footwear, some historic venues ban stiletto heels to protect their wooden floors.
Wet weather plans
If you’re having a winter wedding or just generally getting married in the UK (where rain is likely!), consider a pair of ‘Waddington Boots’ so that you can walk through the snow and puddles and not spoil your shoes.
Match your shoes to your dress
Take a swatch of your dress fabric with you when you choose your shoes to make sure that it matches up and the color doesn’t clash.
If you’re wearing a very traditional wedding dress, remember you can make a statement with your shoes. You don’t have to wear white or ivory – you could make a visual splash with scarlet heels – or any color you fancy.
Pamper your feet
Have a pedicure before your wedding day so that your feet are soft and nails in great condition. They’ll also be picture perfect for your honeymoon!
Practice walking in your shoes
Last but not least, practice, practice and practice walking in your shoes so that you’re really used to them by your big day.
