You’re about to say yes and you’ve finally found the dress of your dreams. But now comes the fateful moment to choose your bridal shoes. Finding the right shoe is not always easy, so here are some tips to help you in your search.
COMFORT FIRST AND FOREMOST
Style is good, but comfort is even better! Wedding shoes do not necessarily rhyme with high heels, take the freedom to marry flat, in sandals, ballerinas or sneakers if you feel uncomfortable in heels. On D-Day, you will spend a lot of time standing, trampling and dancing, so even if you choose heels for the ceremony, feel free to bring an extra pair of shoes for the evening.
SHOES ACCORDING TO THE SEASON
If you often think of seasons and temperatures when buying your wedding dress, you often forget that shoes should receive the same attention. In summer, choose an open pair of sandals for example, and in winter, why not wear a nice pair of boots?
TRY ON YOUR SHOES AT THE END OF THE DAY
Avoid going to make your fittings in the early morning but rather prefer the end of the day, when your feet are a little swollen and wider, it will be more faithful to what you will experience on the day. If unfortunately during the fitting, the shoes of your dreams will make martyrdom suffer, forget them!
Vertiginous heels and outdoor cocktails in a park rarely go well together. Adapt your pair of shoes to the place of your wedding, to avoid shoes that sink into the grass or the ground and to stroll between your guests in peace. Don’t hesitate to bring heel toe pads you can find at Les jolies Gambettes or at L’escarpince for you and your guests if the terrain is really not practicable.
Why not your shoes in the colors or theme you have defined for your wedding? Even hidden under your dress, your shoes are the fashion asset of your D-day outfit, they are the extra touch to your dress. Then dare! Choose colourful shoes, shoes with lace if you’ve opted for a romantic, country wedding, or even glitter shoes to dazzle your guests!
