Now that you have your Rachel and Victoria engagement ring, there are so many loose ends to tie when planning for your wedding. You have to square away the venue, firming up your guest list, pick out the perfect dress and you cannot forget about the shoes.
Whether your shoes will be on display or will only peak through your flowing dress, your bridal shoes can really tie your goddess look together. So many things can factor in picking the right shoe. Your bridal shoes can complement your unique style, wedding decor or wedding colors. Here is some inspiration on picking the perfect shoe for your wedding day.
Statement Shoes Are The Way To Go For Short Wedding Dresses
Not all wedding dresses are long, flowing gowns. Some are tea-length. For dresses like that, you really want your shoes to pop since everyone will be able to see them. Picking a statement shoe is also a great way to show off your personal style. Let your imagination and creativity run wild. Sure, you could go for the classic white, but if you are looking for something that will really add emphasis go for a print or a different color.
Coordinate Your Shoe With Your Dress Style
You can coordinate your shoes according to your dress style. Any details that are incorporated in your wedding dress can be highlighted in your shoes. For example, if you have an intricate detail like lace or pearls, you can find a shoe that has some of those qualities making everything complementary. Pick strappy and sexy shoes for sheath, column or mermaid wedding gowns. For A-Line or ball gowns, this is your opportunity to wear a pair of shoes that really mean something to you since they will be difficult to see under your dress.
Harmonize With Your Theme
Keep in mind the theme of your wedding. Saying your nuptials outside in a garden may not be the best environment for stilettos. Likewise, your Converse sneakers may not be the best shoes to wear if you are exchanging your “I dos” at a historical hotel. Make sure that whatever shoes you decide to wear seamlessly mesh with your theme. If your wedding is a little more laid back, the Vans are a great option, especially if it speaks to your personal style. At the same time, if your wedding is really formal, your shoes need to match the occasion.
Keep Your Comfort In Mind
Your comfort should be the most important thing and you should not let it fall to the wayside. You are going to be standing on your feet for a long, doing a lot of walking as well as a lot of dancing. Having a comfortable shoe will either make or break your evening. Maybe you can have a special shoe specifically for when you walk down the aisle, but swap them out for a more comfortable pair when it is time for the reception.
