Choosing wedding shoes is never easy.
Everyone has different views when it comes to wedding shoes, but most importantly, the last thing you want are aching ankles and bliters on your feet.
First of all, you should consider the colour of your shoes in relation to your dress. A white dress will look beautiful with matching shoes. Your shoes should also match your other accessories, such as your bag and your bouquet.
If you want to stay on the safe side, you should opt for a reasonable height. A 3 inch (7.5 cm) is a fairly comfortable height that won’t have you twisting your ankles when the moment comes for you to hit the dancefloor. If you are a tall lady, though, you could even ditch heels and go for flats. But, if you want to wear heels, you have every right to do so.
You should pick wedding shoes that will allow you to be flexible and stable. Try and pick shoes with a secure heel hold or a strap, so that you won’t risk losing them.
It is extremely important that you get the size right. Try on several sizes and models, before finding the one that fits you best.
Be aware that new shoes can often cause soreness from rubbing. Using the Weddy checklist you can find specific boutiques that will offer necessary advice, such as wearing them a few days before if needed and walk around on a carpet floor. Doing this will help you realise where the shoe is causing any rubbing and it give you time to make any adjustments.
There’s no such thing as a perfect pair of wedding shoes.
However, keep in mind that your feet will be thankful if you choose high-quality shoes that won’t hurt them too much.
Most importantly of all, don’t ever show up at your own wedding wearing a pair of shoes that you don’t love. Your wedding shoes will always remind you of your special day, so always pick shoes that will make you feel fabulous.
