6 Tips for Brides to Buy the Perfect Wedding Footwear

16 November 2013

From deciding the perfect dress to buying the latest jewellery, brides make sure that no stone is left unturned for them to look gorgeous on the most important day of their lives. But what most of them forget is to pay attention to one of the most important components of their wedding day look- the bridal footwear. Here are 6 simple steps that every bride can follow to get the perfect shoes for her wedding.

Comfort Comes First

From the time you arrive to the wedding venue, throughout the greeting and welcoming the guests, to finally reaching your new home, you and your shoes are going to be inseparable. So just, imagine what a fix you might be in if they are not comfortable? You do not want the agony caused to you by your footwear to show on your face and in all your pictures! Always choose comfort over everything else.

Keep the Outfit Length in Mind

Usually, brides chose their outfits first and then the footwear. But a wiser option would be to decide on a few pieces of footwear before your dress. This would be helpful in many ways. Firstly, you can decide the length of your outfit according to the height of your heels so you do not have a tripping incident at your wedding. Also, if your shoes are already embellished, you can go for lesser work around the bottom of your outfit so that the embellishments show and also do not get entangled in your dress.

Go for Themed or Statement Making Shoes

Making a style statement with shoes instead of the outfit would be a good idea. Nowadays, themed weddings are in vogue! Matching your footwear according to your wedding theme and its prime colours would divert all eyes to your feet. You can also go for bold colours such as dark red, magenta and blues, depending upon the colours in your wedding outfit.

Keep a Spare

Keeping a spare pair of footwear for the wedding day would be a smart move. Buy a similar looking pair of shoes for your wedding outfit that matches the style of the one you have already purchased. If a mishap happens and causes your shoes to break at the last moment, at least you will not be in a panic mode and nor will your family members be running all over the place to arrange new shoes for you.

Keep the Wedding Venue in Mind

If your wedding venue is a farmhouse or somewhere where you will have to walk on bare grass, avoid going in for pencil heels. Heels with a broad base will be more suitable. Likewise, if you are having a beach themed destination wedding, wearing huge bulky heels will make you very uncomfortable on the sand. Flat footwear will be advisable for such locations.

Wear them Beforehand

One mistake that each bride makes is that of buying the wedding footwear and keeping it packed, only to be worn on the wedding day. New shoes can be a little uncomfortable in the beginning and even give you shoe bites. They take a little time to get worn in and take the shape of your feet. So start wearing your shoes inside your house for a few hours every day so that you get comfortable in them.
