Bridal Shoe Ideas

If you thought picking your wedding dress was hard, determining your perfect bridal shoe might prove to be just as difficult! For some brides, they might already know they want a dramatic and bold heel, or maybe a simple pair of sneakers to wear on wedding day, but for others, this decision might be more complex. Today, we are offering you some tips to help make choosing your bridal shoe a little bit easier!

Consider your bridal style. 

Does your wedding have a theme, or are you going for a certain look? Consider your bridal style and the details, materials, embellishments, or colors that you want to see incorporated into your attire. This should make things less overwhelming and help you to narrow down your options.

Here are some wedding shoes from a bridal shop we love!

Find a dress first.

Hold off on purchasing shoes until you’ve found a dress first! If you buy a shoe you like before finding your dress, they might not end up matching that well, and it’s important your footwear compliments your dress in every aspect. If you choose a shorter dress, you might want more of a statement shoe, while choosing a full-length dress might not even allow for your shoes to be seen.

Always try them on!

Sizing varies, so always try on your shoes before purchasing them! While online shopping is easy and convenient amidst the wedding planning process, since you’ll be wearing these shoes for hours, you must try them on. Make sure you can walk and stand in this pair of shoes before committing to them.

Are they comfortable?

You should prioritize having a comfortable pair of shoes on your wedding day, no matter if they’re heels, flats, or sneakers. We often focus so heavily on style and aesthetics, but if your shoes are so uncomfortable you can’t enjoy yourself, why even wear them? Know that on your wedding day you will be up and walking around a lot longer than normal.

Consider your wedding venue. 

Getting married outside? A stiletto heel might not be the best choice, as your shoes could get stuck in the grass! Be sure to consider your wedding venue when determining heel height, or if you’re going to omit the idea of a heel altogether.

Although it might seem more important to find your wedding dress before the perfect pair of bridal shoes, be sure you don’t wait until the last minute! When it comes to alterations, the dressmaker or tailor will need to see how your dress sits exactly with the height of your shoes in order to make the right adjustments. We wish you the best of luck in your search for the perfect bridal attire and accessories!
