Bridal shoes: Choose comfort over style
Posted by AllmaJess on December 2nd, 2014
Your wedding day is nearing and you are busy sorting out the last minute details. You have decided on the dress and the detailed beadwork on it, but, have you given the shoes a thought? To add elegance to that beautiful wedding dress you need to have a perfect pair of shoes. Matching bridal shoes will add oodles of charm and beauty to the entire look. And for a trendy look, invest in a pair of fashionable platform shoes that add height and create the illusion of long legs. Who wouldn’t want to strut down the aisle with pride in your eyes and comfort in your feet? A nice pair of heels will do that for you. They will make those steps to the altar, the most memorable and phenomenal.
To choose the perfect bridal shoes you need to coordinate them with your dress. The shoes should match the colour of your dress and its look should be subtle enough to be noticed but not be hideous. Since most wedding gowns are long with a trail, platform shoes are highly preferred. They not only have high heels but also have the platform under your toes to provide the necessary support. Your shoes can be peep-toe or completely covered. You can opt for lacework shoes or shoes embroidered with sequins. Always remember to tone down and contrast. If your dress has lacework then avoid that in the shoes and the same goes for sequins too.
Ivory white has always been the favourite for bridal shoes but you can also go for silver or add a touch of blue to keep up with the old English tradition. Sparkly platform shoes and wedge heels are the new entrants in the show. Soft pastel coloured shoes can create a striking effect and are absolutely in vogue. You can be experimental and daring with bold colours like violet, red and blue or you can play safe with peach, beige and other pastel shades. You will get a lot of options to choose from when you shop online.
Crystals look good on bridal shoes too. They are used around the height in the platform shoes and also around the heels to draw attention. Metallic silver and metallic gold bridal shoes are a great accessory as the metallic tone in combination with satin work looks amazing in heels. You can opt for ankle straps, sling backs or pumps. You can have shoes with bows or woven flowers for the girly touch while jewel studded shoes add a royal charm to them.
You don’t have to worry if you do not fit into standard foot size. Many dealers prepare bridal shoes on demand with required specifications like width and length and also the height of the heel. Approach the online stores and place your measurements and the shoe will be delivered within a short time. Platform shoes come with comfortable soles and cushions to prevent strain and stress around your feet and legs. Choose comfort over style for you will be on your feet right from the walk down the aisle till your last dance. Don’t let shoe bites spoil your day.
