You will be walking down the aisle, dancing on the floor all night and have a thousand photos taken of you on your wedding day. So, it is imperative that you find yourself a pair of wedding shoes which are no less than perfect both in the looks and comfort department. So, here are few of our tips and tricks to help you find the perfect pair.
- Find the right size
This is more of a common sense than a tip. You have to get the perfect size which is not so snug that it digs into your skin and leaves you with blisters not so loose that they feel like they will fly off your feet every time you take a step. It is a good idea to go half a size up if you are opting for a closed show for the utmost comfort.
- Get it before time
Do not make the grave mistake of getting your wedding shoes a day before your wedding. Get them as soon as you have decided on your dress. This will give you enough time to break in your new shoes well before the big day so your shoes mould to the shape of your shoes. If your shoes feel a little tight at first an easy hack to make them more comfortable is by slipping on a thick pair of socks and put your shoes on then use a hair dryer to blow warm air over your shoes to stretch them out slightly.
- Decide your style
It is essential that you match the style of your shoes with your dress for a coherent look. For a classic look opt for close toed pumps or ballerina shoes. If you want to show off a little bit of your pedicure even in a closed toed shoes then a peep toe style is perfect. Then there are the strappy sandals which are very modern, stylish and sexy at the same time. You can go for a timeless look with lush materials like satin or lace or make a bold statement with crystals and rhinestones.
- Colour of the shoe
You have to decide whether you want a pop of right colour or want your shoes to match your shoes. When you are opting for a pop of colour you want to choose from colours that create a tasteful contrast with your gown in colours such as yellow, red or emerald green. For a match, look for pale shades of ivory, champagne or blush. They do not have to match your gown exactly but should be in the same colour family for a coherent look.
- Figure out the heel
The length and type of your heel not only depends on what you are comfortable with but also with the setting of your wedding. Skinny stiletto heels are best kept for indoor weddings where the floor is strong enough to hold the concentrated pressure. For those brides who want comfort over height on their wedding day, ballerina flats are the most comfortable options. Dance shoes – a great pair for outdoor weddings with zero risk of any heel sinking into the heel. For those who want comfort along with some height, wedge heels are your best friend.
