Choosing Your Wedding Shoes


The perfect wedding shoes do not require a fairy godmother, but finding the perfect fit, style and color can be a small challenge. Beyond the fit and the match, you must be able to command your shoes down the runway without tripping head over heels. These tips will help you choose your wedding shoes.


Dress Before the Wedding Shoes


Step into your dream dress before trying on wedding shoes. This might sound out of order, but it is the same rule that applies to every wardrobe choice. Choose the dress before the shoes. Your wedding dress will be the most important piece of your ensemble. Everything else will be an accessory to complete your look.

Wedding Shoes

Matching the Style


Your wedding shoes should match your style. If you are planning a rustic garden or Boho wedding, you might want a simple shoe. An elegant ballroom affair could call for a classy heel with thin straps. If you will be wearing an A-line gown, mermaid gown, trumpet gown or slit skirt, then your sophisticated look demands sophisticated wedding shoes. If you can command a higher heel, choose thin straps, a deep arch and a tapered stiletto heel. If you have difficulty walking in high heels, a small platform in the ball of the shoe or a wide and chunky heel or wedge can help. Thicker straps will also change the look. If you are thinking elegant, think delicate, thin and simple. Make sure your wedding shoes match the dress.


Matching Color


Matching the color and the shade of your wedding shoes to your dress is important. Have you ever placed a navy shirt next to navy pants to realize the color was slightly off? This is because there are different shades of every color, and different fabrics absorb color differently. If you are unable to match the shade exactly, select a contrasting color that coordinates with the dress. Silver and gold will compliment and contrast other colors well.


What Really Matters


The most important part of your wedding shoes is how they make you feel. This is a day for smiles and celebration. The memory of your wedding day should not be a painful one. Make sure your shoes are comfortable and your feet can command their movement. Wear the shoes that make you smile.
