To speak to one of our team:

Each bride is unique, having her own tastes and sense of style that she’ll want to incorporate into the big day. One of the main priorities for every bride is finding her perfect dress. Once found, it’s time to think about your whole look and this includes finding the ideal wedding shoes for your special day. These should complement your dress and overall style to make you feel a million dollars.

It can be overwhelming when you first look at all the different styles and shades of wedding shoes. There are so many aspects to think about that having extra advice on hand is essential for making an informed choice.

Let’s take a look at some wedding shoe considerations and how to find that dream pair of wedding shoes for the bride.

The Right Shoes

When any bride looks for her wedding shoes, it’s a really important decision to make. Finding the right shoes involves picking a pair that’s right for your wedding but also right for you.

Always remember:

  • It’s not just about what you look like on your wedding day. It’s no good looking amazing if you don’t feel amazing as well. You’ll want a look that will make you feel confident, beautiful and encapsulates your personality.
  • It’s important your wedding shoes complement the rest of your outfit to create the perfect look.
  • Think about all the elements that are essential. The most beautiful pair on the shelf may not be the right pair for you. List out the elements that are important to you or anything you would like to try and you can then start your hunt. This will get you into the frame of mind and focus your search.

Wedding Shoes for the Bride – What to Consider

When looking for the dream pair of wedding shoes, every bride needs to consider some important factors.

Your Dress:

When starting a search for the perfect wedding shoes for brides, most have already found their dress for the big day. Brides should think about their dress at all times while shopping for their bridal shoes including its length, style, fabric and colour. Your shoes need to complement the dress and any other accessories you’re planning to wear. This ensures your overall look is exactly as you want it to be.

The Style:

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you start looking at wedding shoe collections. There’s such a broad range of shoes available that there’ll be a pair that will finally tick all the boxes. Important elements to think about include:

  • Heel height and size
  • Toe style
  • Patterns
  • Embellishments
  • Fabric
  • Colour

Colour is an important element. Many brides go for classic ivory wedding shoes, but coloured pairs are becoming more popular as weddings become less traditional. Many brides put their own colour stamp on a wedding with a coloured dress, belt or accent colour, or add a splash of colour by having shoes and accessories with a colour scheme. There are many coloured wedding shoes for brides available and this has the added bonus of being able to re-wear the shoes for special occasions in the future. If you find the perfect pair, but they’re the traditional ivory colour, many places offer shoe dyeing services depending on the fabric and make of the shoe. This means you get the best of both worlds – your perfect pair of bridal shoes in the perfect shade! This can sometimes be a better option as they will match the exact shade you need.

Feeling Comfortable:

Comfort should never be downplayed on your wedding day. As a bride, there’ll be many periods when you’ll be on your feet, including greeting and mingling with your guests, the ceremony and of course the first dance. You may want to consider how comfortable your shoes are and if you are wearing heels as many brides do, how used your feet are to wearing them. Realistically think about what your feet can cope with. You don’t want discomfort putting a dampener on the day. Sometimes, certain styles will fit your feet much better and relieve the pressure, or some brides get a more comfortable pair to slip into later on in the night.

Consider all these elements and you’ll go into your wedding shoe search with more ideas than you originally thought, which may help focus your attention.

Top Tips for Bridal Shoe Shopping

While it’s a huge and important task finding the right wedding shoes, the biggest rule with any type of wedding shopping is to enjoy it! You only get this experience once and trying on different wedding dresses, shoes and accessories is supposed to be fun. There’s enough stress with organising a wedding and these parts are meant to be some of the perks of being a bride. Here are some important tips to keeping your shopping experience as stress-free as possible.

  • The dress: While it’s important to find a pair of wedding shoes that’s right for you, they shouldn’t define your entire look. Instead, they should complement the style of your dress, personality and wedding style.
  • Do it early: To have a stress-free shopping experience, don’t leave it until the last minute! The worst thing for a bride is to have to rush and choose a pair under pressure. If you start early (as soon as you have picked your dress), you can do it without pressure and enjoy it more. It won’t matter if you don’t find the right pair on your first try. It’s important to be 100% satisfied with the pair you eventually decide upon.
  • Dress fittings and breaking the shoes in: Two more reasons for buying your shoes early are to take along to your wedding dress fittings and to break them in so you are completely used to them before the big day. Dress alterations should take place bearing in mind your heel height and how you look with your shoes on. You should also wear your shoes, around your house for example, so that you can get used to them and break them in. This will save the need for too many emergency plasters on your wedding day. You’ll also feel confident and ready to walk down the aisle.
  • Shoe dyeing: If you’ve found the perfect shoes but they’re not in the colour you want, it’s worth exploring the option of using specialist shoe dyeing services. It depends on the type of shoe and what the fabric is but many traditional wedding shoes can be matched to almost any colour. Many places have wedding shoe collections that can all be dyed. This could save you hours trying to find exactly the right shade.
  • Treat yourself: If there’s ever a time to tap into your luxurious side, wedding shopping is it. You only get married once and it’s a day to indulge in your wildest shoe fantasies! Designer wedding shoe collections can offer some of the most beautifully designed shoes and are often more reasonably priced than you’d think.
  • The ultimate stress-free experience: The best way to enjoy wedding shoe shopping in a relaxed and personal environment is to visit our wedding shoe boutique. Our expert sales assistants will guide you through the various shoes that fit your criteria and also ones which match your favoured style. Our boutique caters for all the wedding party as well as brides, so it’s the perfect place for anyone wanting wedding shoes.
