Choosing the perfect wedding shoe for your wedding day can be nerve wrecking. Here are some tips on how you can pick the right wedding shoe:-
Tip 1 – Right Shoe for the Right Dress.
If you are wearing an elaborate and fairly detailed dress, our advice would be to keep your shoes as simple as possible. On the other hand, if you are wearing a simple wedding dress, you can go all-out and choose more complex designs of shoes. Elaborate shoes are perfect if you are wearing a simple gown.
Tip 2 – Comfort is King.
Comfort is the key. If you are going for high heel shoes, pick heels with thicker platforms. The elevated platform will help ease the strain on your feet and ensure that you walk alright throughout the day. If you are not used to high heel shoes, opt for a lower kitten heel. Be sure you take a short walk in your wedding shoes before your big day to get a better feel of the shoe.
Tip 3 – Heel height VS Dress Length
Don’t leave the shoe hunting till the last moment! Be sure you look for your shoes as soon as you determine the dress you will be wearing on your big day. For taller brides, it is essential to ensure that you pick a suitable heel height for your heels in order not to tower over your groom. For brides who will be opting for towering heels, be sure your wedding dress is adjusted to the right length. This is important to ensure that the gap between the gown and the floor is correct and manageable.
Tip 4 – The right shade of White
Be sure you pick the right shade of white! Yes, there are many different shades of whites! Common shades used during weddings include ivory white, pure white, off white, cream, eggshell and pearl white. Before you pick the right pair of wedding shoes, be sure you have a image or a fabric swatch of your gown so you will be able to compare the color shade against the wedding shoes which you plan to buy.
Tip 5 – Right Shoes at the Right Place.
Get the right shoes for the right venue. Depending on where your wedding will be held, pick the right shoe type to complement it. If you are having a beach or garden wedding, opt for wedges or thicker heels. This way, you can be sure your shoe heel doesn’t sink into the soil or grass when you walk. You can also opt for beautifully decorated wedding flats or slippers. If you are having your reception indoors, you may pick stilettos, heels , pumps or Mary janes.
If all fails, there is always custom made wedding shoes! Custom made wedding shoes may cost more compared to ready made wedding shoes but you have the flexibility and freedom to have them made in any heel height, dimension, color, materials and more – just the way you want them to be for your wedding day!
