Shoes for the Bride
Any bride with blisters on her heels will tell you that choosing the right shoes can make the difference been a fun wedding and a flop. You want to be able to kick up your heels on the dance floor, rather than hobble around in six-inch heels!
Miss Polka Dot from Polkadot Bride says it’s essential you choose your shoes before your last few dress fittings, so the length of your dress will be correct. Here’s her low-down on shoe styles and successful bridal shoe shopping!
- Closed toe. A gorgeously elegant shoe, this style creates an unbroken line through your dress to the floor. Great for winter weddings as stockings look fine underneath. Can be dyed to match your gown.
- Open toe. Please don’t wear stockings with these shoes! Have a pedicure, even if you do it yourself! Make it a girl’s night!
- Peep toe. Peep toes are so sexy and sweet! They give you the comfort of a closed shoe but with a little sass of toes peeking out. Again the no stocking rule applies. So does the pedicure rule!
- Heel heights. From a bride in the highest of heels to the casual bride who prefers comfort, your shoes can come in a variety of heel heights and types. Stilettos can be gorgeously sexy but flats are fantastic for dancing throughout the night; kitten heels give a bit of height while still retaining comfort.
- Something different. Nothing says you have to go with white satin shoes. Mix it up! Be different! Make it you! A glance of your favourite colour can jazz up a white dress and create a whimsical touch. Try toning the shoes in with your bridesmaids or pick up a colour from your table settings or bouquet.
- Ballroom shoes. This is a great option for brides who are concerned about the comfort of their feet. Ballroom dancing shoes are designed to be extra supportive for all those quick moves on the dance floor which make them a great choice for brides.
- Beaded foot jewellery. This is perfect if you’re getting married on the beach and want to still put something pretty on your bare feet! Barefoot Sandals has a range of foot jewellery made from many different beads - even pearls!
- Beach flip flops. If you’re going barefoot on the beach, you may consider a pair of flip flops – perfect for walking over hot sand or grooving on the dance floor! (Try Pink Frosting’s flip flops which you can even have personalised!).
- Shoe traditions. A great tradition is to get all your unmarried bridesmaids to sign the bottom of your shoe - the last name to wear off is the next one to marry!
- Wear them in. Be sure to wear your shoes ‘in’ before the wedding day so they’re comfortable - wear them around the house and scuff the soles on cement or with a wire brush to make sure you don’t slip!
