Picking the Right Summer Wedding Shoe for You
Whether your dress is short or long, your shoes are important. Gone are the days when bridal shoes were the last thing on your mind and nowadays, shoes are as much a feature of your get-up as anything else.
Recent trends have included colorful shoes and of course, sky-high platforms are currently the order of the day in the non-wedding world. Remember, though, that with your bridal shoes, you need not only to think about fashion, but also about issues like comfort and height (yours and your partner’s).
Here are a few ideas when looking for a shoe style.
1. Peep-toe – sexy and dainty at the same time, the peep toe shoe will make your feet look seriously feminine and give that ever-so-fashionable 1940s touch to your look.
2. Strappy sandals – some of you live in these and with reports suggesting that it’s going to be a hot summer they’re a great choice to complement a summery dress. Stay away from anything too blingy, unless your dress is very plain, and make sure you wear them for a few minutes each day leading up to the wedding, to check for any potential pain.
3. Sling-backs – so reliable, sling-backs really are a timeless classic. Whether with sky-high heels or dainty kitten heels, the sling-back will draw attention to your ankles while also letting your feet breath. Remember to exfoliate and moisturise the back of your feet in plenty of time for the big day.
4. Mules – Comfortable, fresh and summery, mules can be a great choice, especially if you want to wear a lower heel. Prepare your feet for maximum exposure and why not add some shoe cushions, to make sure you won’t be kicking them into the corner by dessert.
5. Decoration – bows and flowers are all over weddings this year and shoes need not be any exception. If your dress is plain, then you really can go to town with your shoes and while colored shoes are always an option, white or cream ones with discreet appliques are a classy choice.
