Every bride wants to walk down the aisle wearing her dream pair of wedding shoes. She wants to feel confident, beautiful and everything she expected to feel. It’s important to choose the right wedding shoes so that you feel like you and your whole wedding look is fully coordinated. Vintage wedding shoes are a highly popular choice for brides as they capture the timeless beauty of past eras while keeping in line with modern wedding styles.

Choosing the Right Wedding Shoes

While the bride has the biggest task on her hands, it’s important to remember that other wedding guests also want to look the part. This includes the Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, bridesmaids, and other wedding attendees. Everybody wants to look and feel their best on such a special day.

Top Considerations:

  • Bridal Shoes – For brides, the most important element is to have shoes that match your gorgeous dress. Therefore, always think about the style and look of your dress, the material, and what it says about you. You can then use these factors to look for perfectly matched shoes.
  • Feeling Good – It’s not just about picking out the pair you think look the nicest. Once you put them on, they need to feel just as good as they look. Do they feel like you? Do you feel confident in them? If not, they may not be the right pair.
  • Your Wedding Look – Never leave wedding shoe shopping to the last minute as it will only pile on the pressure and make you settle for something that you don’t really want. Consider the length, fabric, style and colour of your dress to ensure it matches your shoes. The dress you have chosen for your vintage inspired wedding may be tea length or have fabrics inspired by eras starting with the 1920s through to the 1950s, such as antique lace. Vintage wedding dresses embody the style and exquisite detailing or another era and your shoes should complement your dress completely.
  • Shoe Style – There are several elements to consider when it comes to the style of shoe you choose. Think about heel height, toe style, pattern and fabric when you start looking for the right pair. While colour is important, many satin and silk shoes can be dyed to match the exact colour you want. This may be an easier option if you are adding a splash of colour to the wedding. Vintage wedding shoes are inspired by the traditional ballroom shoe and have vintage styling with features such as an elegant T-bar, wearable heels, a distinct Art Deco look, sweetheart shaped front peep toes, and vintage lace. Capturing the essence of a bygone era, vintage wedding shoes are something to really consider, especially if you have a vintage inspired wedding.
  • Comfort – Never underestimate the strain on your feet from standing at a wedding. You need a pair of quality-made shoes so that you feel supported throughout the day. There are also beautiful flat wedding shoes available, which may be an option if you don’t want to wear heels.

Put a list of all your favourite elements together and what you think suits you. This will focus your attention when starting your wedding shoe search.

Why Choose Vintage Wedding Shoes?

In essence, vintage wedding shoes are ones which have a feel of past eras where style was at the helm. They are timeless classics that have a sense of romance, elegance and beauty. There’s often an element of glamour to them which means they have that little something extra special to make them unique.

Designer Vintage Wedding Shoes:

Designer wedding shoes are incredibly popular because they have the benefit of combining most of the elements that are important to brides and wedding guests when they’re searching for their perfect pair of wedding shoes. Benefits include:

  • Style
  • Quality
  • Comfort
  • Affordability

Style – Designer vintage wedding shoes are some of the most stylish you can wear. Designer collections offer a unique twist that’ll combine gorgeous vintage designs with contemporary styles. Every designer has their own take on a vintage inspired theme which means your footwear will be unique and unmistakably stylish. Vintage wedding shoes from designer ranges usually have the wow factor that makes them popular with both brides and wedding guests. You can make your footwear extra special by adding vintage wedding shoe clips, often designed by the same designers as the shoe collections.

Quality – Designer shoes are well-made as they are made by traditional manual techniques. Handmade shoes are of great quality, meaning that you’ll feel the difference as soon as you put them on. High quality materials are used during their creation, including quality leathers that add extra support and comfort to feet. Covered in luxurious fabrics such as satin and silk, this really is the way to treat your feet on such a special occasion.

Comfort – Many brides and wedding attendees forget just how much they’ll be on their feet during the wedding day. Designer wedding shoes are quality made and therefore will support your feet throughout the day and evening festivities. Some designs also have extra padding to make them particularly comfortable.

Affordable – Designer shoes are often seen as shoes that have a higher price tag. However, designer wedding shoe collections vary in price and there are options for every budget. Wedding shoe designers have brides and wedding guests in mind when they design their beautiful collections. The quality, style and comfort you’ll get with a designer pair will more than justify the costs and you’ll want to wear them for years to come.

Finding Your Dream Vintage Wedding Shoes

When you’re looking for gorgeous vintage wedding shoes, you’ll discover just how many beautiful ranges there are. Unfortunately, this can make life more difficult. You’ll need to really think about what elements are important to you and fit in with your overall style and wedding theme. Honest advice is essential and it’s handy to have an expert by your side to help you narrow down such stunning choices.

At Love Lane Boutique, we offer brides and wedding guests the ultimate quality experience when they’re searching for the dream pair of vintage wedding shoes. With 80-100 pairs in store, they’ll be plenty for you to choose from. Our experts take the time to understand your needs. This means you can then try on some gorgeous pairs of shoes in the perfectly relaxed setting while receiving such a personal service.

With our collections, you’ll find vintage inspired shoes that embrace the head to toe ethos of a bygone era. Vintage shoes often sit on a softly flared Louis-style mid heel, which not only give an authentically vintage look but also add to the comfort. The vintage styling of our collections adds a dainty taste of nostalgia with Mary Jane wedding shoes and T-bar shoes embracing the vintage styling.

We love wedding shoes and accessories and as such, only ever stock designer wedding shoes created with the same values and passion that we have. We stock some beautiful collections and this includes many pairs which would go perfectly with a vintage style wedding or dress, or if you want to inject some classic vintage style into your outfit.

You’ll be able to create the ultimate vintage look with each element coordinated perfectly.

If you want to inject a splash of colour into your big day, we have plenty of colourful designs for you to look at. One of our most popular services however, is our expert shoe dyeing service. Many of our satin and silk wedding shoes can be dyed to match whatever colour you need. This can save you hours trying to find the right colour shoes, which may not be the perfect fit or style. Our expert technicians will just need a fabric swatch in the colour you need and they can match your shoes to it exactly. This is also a service which you can access after the wedding day. Many of our brides return and use the service after the big day so that they have a pair of coloured shoes to wear to future special events.
