Comfort is Key

It’s no secret you will be on your feet for what might seem like forever, from the first look to the last dance at your reception. Keep your feet happy with a comfortable pair of shoes that still show off your style. If you’re getting married outdoors, pick a sturdy heel that can survive wedding photos in the grass or sand. For brides who are looking to dance all night long, pick a shoe with a wider platform so you can stick all your moves on the dancefloor.

Splurge-worthy Shoes

Some brides choose less expensive wedding shoes, as they may not be seen for most of the wedding. If you have been eyeing a more expensive pair for the big day, they may be worth the investment. They’re likely to be more comfortable and can be worn far beyond the wedding, and will always add a special, sentimental touch to any outfit.

Show Off Your Style

Comfort is important, but your wedding day is also an opportunity to show off your style and feel your most confident.  Stay true to who you are, and let your wedding day look reflect that, whether it’s rocking a pair of booties or slipping on a blinged-out pair of sneakers.

Consider the Hemline

Purchase your wedding shoes before your first dress fitting. The seamstress will create a bustle and hem the dress based on the height of your shoes. If your dress has an asymmetrical hemline or high-low style, make sure you find shoes that you will be happy to see in photos.

Something Blue Shoes

If you’re having a hard time deciding what to make your ‘something blue,’ make it your shoes! You can incorporate the tradition in style, with a baby blue hue or powder blue shoe for a subtle pop of color.
