We don’t really need an excuse to buy a great pair of shoes but if there’s an appropriate excuse out there it would be your wedding day!
And thinking of your wedding day, this may even be an occasion for multiple pairs of shoes right? Because really, are you going to want to dance the night away in the heels that you’ve been standing in since noon? Great quality shoes or not, those toes start to hurt after a while don’t they? Your fiance gets it, one look at those pointy heels and he gets it, you need a couple pairs. There’s no way he’d try to last in heels all day.
It’s rare but I have heard the occasional Bride say that they’re not concerned about their shoes because their dress will cover them. I know you have a long dress but please know that people WILL see your shoes and your photographer will always manage to get a shot of just your feet peeking out from under your dress. They love that shot for some reason.
Your wedding shoes aren’t like your wedding dress in the sense that you can and most likely would love to wear them again. So investing in a great pair of shoes for your wedding will not be money lost. I always go with neutral colours becuase I was taught that a neutral or nude coloured shoe will elongate your legs (this is of course for later on when your wearing them again with a cocktail dress.) Black may not be a great wedding shoe selection unless of course black is your accent colour at the wedding. Typically a black shoe will draw the eye down and we don’t want the attention being taken away from your gown. Colours however are great and I love when a Bride purchases a wedding shoe that complements her wedding colours.
Here are some of my favourites right now!
I’ve never been a fan of satin shoes, particularly white satin wedding shoes but I have to admit that Vera Wang has me sold on these ones…
Like I mentioned earlier, this is a two pair of shoes event! So let’s look at some dancing shoes. The first pair, the pink Prada flats with the bows are my favourite, I just love them. But I get that they’re not for everyone, maybe you think they’re a little Minnie Mouse haha. In that case, here’s another great wedding flat from Vera Wang.
You’re a lucky lady if your future husband is as into shoes as you are but lets face it, he probably isn’t. That can be okay too though, maybe he’s assigned you as his personal stylist to select and purchase all his clothes! Here’s a great men’s shoe from Versace that I’m loving the look of.
