How to choose your wedding shoes

How to choose your wedding shoes


Written by Katie Byrne


The five things every bride needs to consider before saying 'I do' to her wedding shoes

 

1. Be practical

Pick shoes that will complement your dress - bear in mind the colour and cut of your gown, as well as where you will be getting married. Also, bear in mind where you're getting married; if you're planning to exchange vows outside, you run the risk of sinking into the grass. Which, trust us, gets very annoying very quickly. Also, those beautiful but totally impractical shoes you've fallen head-over-heels in love with? Forget them. Hobbling up the aisle in the name of fashion is not a smart idea.

2. Give yourself time

Don't leave buying your wedding shoes until the last minute. Instead, start browsing early so you have an idea of the kind of heels and flats that you like and keep your eyes peeled for relavent sample sales and offers.

3. Something blue?

White is an obvious shade for your wedding shoes - but if you haven't settled on your 'something blue' yet, why not make it your shoes? The Rainbow Club offers a fabulous dying service, so if you've found your perfect pair but fancy them in a different colour, you can make the dream a reality!

4. Just dance

Assuming you can walk comfortably in your wedding shoes (always a bonus...), see if you can dance in them. Don't forget to break your shoes in before the big day, too; wear them around your house to get your feet comfortable and familiar with them.

5. Finally... Check with your venue

It might sound unlikely but seriously - do this! If you're tying the knot in a historic venue, stilettos may be banned in order to keep the ancient wooden floors protected. But that's fine, because there are endless gorgeous pairs of flats and wedges out there for you to get shopping instead!
