The latest Ask Emmaline question just came in, concise and to-the-point: do wedding shoes have to be white?
Back in the day — a Thursday, I think, just kidding — brides believed you had to wear wedding shoes that matched the dress. Perhaps that was the style, maybe it’s just because everyone and their cousin did the same thing.
But today, traditions like wearing white shoes just because you’re the bride are completely tossed out the window.
In fact, brides are balking traditions of all kinds, which makes weddings even more personalized and fun. For instance, some brides aren’t wearing a veil at all; they’re opting for one of these instead.
Other brides are skipping the garter because they don’t see the point when they’re not planning to toss it.
There are plenty of traditional brides who choose classic timeless things like ball gowns and veils, along with white shoes, too. But there’s a difference: today, it’s completely up to you!
Brides love the idea of picking out wedding shoes that show off their personality and individual style. We encourage this because it adds a fun dimension to your wedding look and can tie into your wedding theme, colors, and be a pair of shoes you’ll really — truly — love to wear again.
I went with ivory shoes to match my gown and, while incredibly lovely, they sit in a box because I honestly cannot wear them. Where can you wear obviously wedding-looking shoes in ivory?! I still haven’t figured it out so there they sit.
Today we’re sharing some fun non-white wedding shoes with lace accents by WalkinOnAir. These shoes will definitely give your look a stylish boost. These are still perfectly bridal accepted yet a bit more colorful than traditional white or ivory.
