Choosing your wedding shoes can be one of the hardest decisions. They have to be perfect, and when we say perfect, we mean that these shoes have to be resistant, match with the wedding gown, make you feel great and they have to look divine. Also, they have to hold on for at least 24 hours, in different weather conditions. But the most important aspect is to strike a balance between your own personal taste, your overall wedding day look, and comfort when shopping for wedding shoes.
Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect pair of bridal shoes! Try to go shopping in the afternoon for your bridal shoes, because your feet will be pretty swollen and tired already; considering that on the wedding day after 6 hours and 10 dances, your feet will be the same – this way, you can choose the most comfortable ones!
Another very important thing is to break them in – a few weeks before the wedding try to wear them at home for an hour or two, so this will break the fabric in and help you get used to them. This may seem a little bit strange, but it is very practical to have more that one pair of shoes.Many brides have two pair for the same wedding. This way, you’ll be assured for the entire wedding and you can wear those killer heels for the ceremony and photos and change into the comfy ones for dancing and mingling. Try to find a pair of shoes that will complement your wedding dress – fancy, embellished shoes for a simple dress; or simple shoes with an elaborate gown. This rule of thumb can help take some of the confusion out of finding the right bridal shoes.
By eliminating the need to match embellishments and detailing, the perfect match is more easily attained.Consider your hemline – a decorated hemline calls for a more simple shoe style, while embellished shoes can dress up a plain, simple hemline.
One time in your life you want to look composed is walking down the aisle, and this can be tricky if your wedding shoes seem incompatible with the floor surface! If it’s a hard floor, use sandpaper to scuff the soles in advance. Alternatively, you could walk around outside to get a similar effect, or add self-adhesive sole pads for added grip. Don’t forget that the best wedding shoes are those that make you feel sexy and fabulous.
