As a Bride-to-be, you hunt for that perfect pair of shoes that you will wear as you march down the aisle. This special accessory may not be as important as the wedding dress, but comes in at a close second. With every different type of colour, texture and style out there to choose from, this task may seem slightly overwhelming.
Start by deciding whether you want to wear a dramatic spiked pair of heels, or reasonable and sweet wedding flats. Other than the visual look of the shoes, there are important factors to consider, such as wedding venue, height of the groom, temperature outside, the length of the ceremony and how far you have to walk down the aisle. If you are on the beach or walking through tall grass, you may want flats, while if you indoors, with a shorter style dress, you may want an amazing pair of heels that will make your overall wedding ensemble one no guest will ever forget! Some brides have a Winter Wonderland Wedding, amidst a snowy background and partake in a fun and festive “snow-boot” that makes for a super memorable look and wedding photo memories for all. No matter what you choose as a bride, remember to coordinate your special look with your bridesmaids as well. Perhaps by using a different complimenting colour scheme in a similar style, or a different look to reflect each bridesmaid individually.
A few tips for the comfort savvy Brides as well as the flashy style focused ones. Although some platform stilettos look stunning in photos, your feet may not think so! Save those stunners for the main photos, have a second pair (or boots perhaps) for outside photos, and then have comfy ones saved to rip up the dancefloor later. Whichever pair (s) you choose, make sure that they are all approximately the same height. You do not want to trip all over your dress while dancing in flats if the skirt has been hemmed to fall perfectly for your 7 inch platforms. You can also arrange to have the bustle on the dress come up higher for later in the day. This way you can wear whatever height of heel you want after the photographer stops shooting.
Below are some inspiration photos taken at a few of our own LFW weddings, we hope will give you some new fresh ideas for you to find your perfect pair of Wedding-Day Heels!
