Wedding Shoes: Choosing the Right Pair

Wedding Shoes: Choosing the Right Pair 1All pieces of the wedding-day ensemble are important, but any fashion diva knows the shoes make the outfit. Bridal shoes are no different. Consider these tips when choosing your wedding shoes:

Comfort Counts

Those oh-so-cute heels will make your legs look divine and your feet scream for help if worn all day. No problem. Buy two pair: high heels for the ceremony and comfortable flats for the reception and “down time.”

Heel Height

Speaking of heels, don’t forget to take them with you to the dress fittings. Even if you have not finalized your choice, bring a pair of “stand ins” with the heel height you prefer so your gown can be hemmed to the correct length; the skirt will hang differently over a four-inch than two-inch heel.

What Color Shoes?

Unlike days of old, the shoes do not have to match the dress. Many brides still wear ivory or white wedding shoes. Silver and other colors–such as red, pink, or purple–are increasingly popular. You may coordinate shoes with your bridesmaid or floral colors, or go for the contrast of black shoes with a white gown.
