With more than 60 years of wedding planning experience, we know how difficult it can be choosing the best wedding shoes for you. With such a wide variety or sizes, styles and colours, finding the pair can seem like an overwhelming task. Hopefully this list will help make the task seem a little less daunting.
Comfort is essential
You will be wearing your shoes for a long time. Don’t make the mistake of buying cheap shoes as these lack the all important padding that will make your shoes comfortable on your big day.
Consider the fabric
Silk and satin are the two most popular fabrics for wedding shoes, but it is important to take into account your own personal taste and the wedding dress you have chosen.
Fit with your dress
It is very important that you order your shoes with plenty of time to go before your wedding. This way it takes the pressure off you, giving you enough time to change your mind, have customisations done and so on.
It is also essential that you have your shoes ready for your dress fittings as this allows your dressmaker to tailor your dress for the perfect fit.
Choices of colour
Obviously your shoes should be a great match with your dress, setting and location – but it’s also important that they reflect your personality. Funky brides may want to have their shoes dyed a bright colour, whereas a more traditional bride may want an exact colour match with their dress. You may also want to add some bling to your shoes with jewels or jewelled shoe clips.
The best advice for bride to be in regards to heel height is to stick to what you are comfortable with. Don’t take chances on your big day by wearing heels too high for you, your comfort and stability are key on your wedding day.
To dance or not to dance
If you are planning on doing a fair bit of dancing on your wedding day, then it is advisable that you buy an alternate pair of shoes for dancing, flat ballet slippers for example, so that you can enjoy the festivities later on in comfort.
