Brides: still on the hunt for perfect wedding shoes? Don’t buy before you read this post! Today we’re sharing five wedding shoe tips you need to know before you walk down the aisle. When should you buy your wedding shoes? Should you wear heels or flats? Read on to find out more. Plus, we’ve teamed up with the lovely ladies of Walkin On Air to show you some stylish wedding shoes + your chance to win a free pair of wedding flats! It’s all inside…
Wedding Shoe Tips
1. Buy your shoes before your dress fittings begin.
Buy shoes before your dress fittings, but after your dress has been purchased. Why? During dress fittings, your seamstress will be working on the proper length of your dress. If your heels are too high – or your flats too low – the dress won’t lay as intended. Bring your wedding shoes to dress fittings so your seamstress can get the perfect length.
2. Wear a pair that will be easy to walk in.
Do you normally wear flats? Heels? Pick a style you’re used to wearing. Four inch heels aren’t a great idea for a bride who doesn’t normally wear heels. If you must, go with a smaller heel and wear them prior to the wedding to get used to walking in them.
3. Don’t limit your color options.
White or ivory are beautiful shoe colors, but they’re not the only wedding shoe colors from which to choose! Any shoe color can be worn. If you want a pop of color or a way to accentuate your love for, say, royal blue, colorful shoes are one way to do it. Plus, they count as a little “something blue”, too.
4. Break ’em in.
Don’t let your beautiful new shoes hurt your feet! You’ll be much happier if you break ’em in during the day (and be sure to use these).
5. Bring a backup pair.
And, just in case… bring a backup pair of slip on shoes just in case a heel breaks, your foot aches, or you just want a pair that’s easier for dancing.
