How to pick the Perfect wedding shoes

Picking Your Wedding Shoes

One of the first things a photographer will ask you is - where are the shoes? Wedding day details can tell you a lot about the personality of the bride and and her sense of fashion, her wedding theme, and photos of these details give the wedding album something unique and personal.

When it comes to picking shoes, photographer Aruna Seth suggests that you think outside the box and let your creativity run wild. While white and ivory are traditional, a splash of colour can be easily introduced through your shoes, which are also easily hidden under your dress.

A few tips for choosing the Perfect Wedding Shoes:

1. Comfort is key. Don’t forget you’ll be wearing these shoes for at least 8 hours on your wedding day. Wear them in a bit before your wedding day and try putting plasters behind your heel if they’re rubbing. You might also choose to change from heels into flats after the ceremony. A cute idea is to fill a basket next to the dance floor with flats as favours for the ladies!

2. Style is everything. Heel size, toe style, and the fabric. Oh and don’t forget how important the soles of your wedding shoes are! You can also decorate the bottom of your shoes, we’ve got some ideas around that in our Special Touches *LINK

3. Don’t leave them until last! Brides often focus purely on the wedding dress and leave the shoes until the last minute. Aim to choose your shoes around the same time as your dress – you’ll need to bring them to fittings to determine the length of your gown.

4. Pick the right heel height. Go with a more glamorous version of what you would normally wear but if you’re not used to walking in huge heels, don’t buy them!

5. Treat your feet! Remember to schedule a lovely pedicure before your big day. Slip your feet into your gorgeous wedding shoes with soft skin, neat cuticles and glossy painted nails. Check our Beauty Special Offers LINK**

Been-there Bride Maria says choosing the perfect shoes made a huge difference on her wedding day:
I even kept my shoes and had them box-framed after the wedding with a few other details from our day. I splashed out a bit on my shoes from Steve Madden but it was totally worth it!
