Find the Perfect Wedding Shoes during your ceremony??

Finding the perfect pair of wedding shoes doesn’t have to be stressful, but there are a few things to keep in mind before you buy:

1) Choose comfortable bridal shoes. Sure, those four-inch white heels may be a perfect match for your dress style, and look fantastic on your feet in the store, but standing in them for hours on your wedding day is another story. You want to be focused on having fun with your new spouse, friends and family, not on keeping your balance as you teeter down the aisle or sit with aching feet. There are plenty of cute bridal shoes that take comfort into consideration as well as style: choose a white satin ballet flat, or a low slingback sandal.

2) Take wedding shoe fabrics into consideration. There are numerous types of shoe fabrics out there, such as satin, silk, velvet and lace. Not only are wedding shoes a reflection of your personal taste, but they must also be compatible with your wedding venue. Silk wedding shoes can easily stain in grass or on wet ground, and leather pumps are unique but will be far too hot for a summer wedding.

3) Remember your dress. Don’t fall in love with a particular pair of wedding shoes before you buy your bridal gown. Your dress fabric and any embellishments such as beads or pearls need to be considered while shopping for shoes. There are hundreds of styles of wedding shoes available to fit any type of season, bridal gown, and most importantly, the bride’s unique personality. By keeping all of these factors in mind while shopping, you’ll find the right pair of wedding shoes for your special day.
