If The Shoe Fits...

Once you find that perfect wedding dress, it's time to find the perfect pair of shoes to complete your bridal look. But what shoes are appropriate for brides? Traditional white shoes, heels, flats, color, sparkles, sandals? The list of questionable shoe options is endless. It is no surprise that so many brides are confused when it comes to footwear for the big day. It's time to think outside the shoebox, ladies! Your big day is a wonderful opportunity to express yourself and enjoy being the center of attention. Let your shoes be a reflection of you and your style as you celebrate this milestone event. Think about incorporating shoes that will be the perfect addition to your gown that is fun and different, while also allowing comfort. One of my clients, Heather, is wearing the chicest and most adorable pair of Christian Louboutin shoes on her wedding day. She was even lucky enough to have them autographed my C. Louboutin himself! What a creative and memorable way to put your best foot forward on your special day.

Here are some of my favorite ideas to consider when choosing your wedding shoes:

Find a shoe that is the perfect accent and adds a “pop” of color or detail, still working with the style of your dress. This means matching them to your wedding colors, your bridesmaids’ dresses, the flowers in your bouquet, or even an elegant black or your favorite color.

I think it would be fun and different to wear a metallic shoe or an animal print, adding a little something extra to a dress that isn't too elaborate or detailed.

If your main priority is comfort and you’d like to change your shoes before the reception, you may consider wearing some sort of flats, sandals, or even sneakers! Check out these fun flip flops that are imprinted with the words "Just Married". Perfect for a beach wedding:

The most important thing to remember is to choose a shoe that makes you look and feel fabulous. You will definitely appear confident and comfortable this way, and will also be ready to enjoy your wedding to the fullest!
