Matching your shoes to your wedding dress is an exciting part of the selection process. Think about whether you are wearing a silk, satin or lace dress and match your wedding shoes accordingly. For part of the day you may only see the front of your shoe however you may be lifting your dress to walk (or dance!) and your guests will then see the back of your shoes. Going for some detail at the back can be interesting and eye-catching.

3: HEELS

Once you have chosen your wedding shoes, be sure to take them to your dress fitting to enable the fitter to give you the perfect dress length.

4: WEDDING LOCATION

It is a good idea to think about the wonderful wedding ceremony venue you have chosen when picking your bridal shoes. Are they suitable for your venue? If you are having a lovely summer garden wedding, or even a fabulous beach wedding, it may be a good idea to invest in an extra pair of wedges or flats for when you are walking on the grass so as to avoid ruining your heels in the mud. This is also an idea for certain venues who may ask you not to wear stilettos so you don’t damage the floor. If heels are not an issue, you may opt for an open toe shoe for an outdoor wedding or a more closed option for a winter wedding.

5: COMFORT

One of the most important things to keep in mind while buying your wedding shoes is comfort. Your wedding day will be a very long one spent on your feet from walking down the aisle, greeting guests, posing for photographs, cutting the cake, to standing up for toasts and even dancing the night away. Spending hours on your feet are difficult with even the most comfortable pair of shoes so think about comfort. Remember also your feet will swell over the day especially if you are getting married in the summer.

6: WEARING WITH CONFIDENCE

Schedule in a pedicure a couple of days before the big day. Pampered feet will feel fresher and make you feel special. We suggest when choosing your wedding shoes, buying a ½ size bigger and putting some cushioning or gel pads into your shoes. Spend a few days practising walking in them at home before the big day. And why not try dancing in them!
