At a wedding, the focus is on the newlyweds, especially the bride. Therefore, it is so important to think over the whole image to the smallest detail. Shoes are an important part of a wedding dress. Correctly selected shoes will emphasize the beauty and grace of women's legs and complement the overall image of the bride.
The main criteria for choosing wedding shoes
Wedding shoes should be comfortable, of high quality and match the dress. You should not make sacrifices for the sake of beauty, because in these shoes the bride will have to spend the entire holiday, and the pain from feet rubbed into blood can darken the joy of the celebration.
Measure your shoes in the afternoon, as your feet swell slightly in the late afternoon. In this case, the chosen shoes will not press hard even in hot weather. Buy your shoes in advance so you have time at home to run them around a bit.
Wedding shoes must be of high quality. Shoes made of genuine leather will allow your feet to "breathe" and reduce fatigue from prolonged wear. A good summer option is ballet flats made of fabric materials.
You should not be guided only by the cost of the product. The high price is not a guarantee of perfect shoes, but frankly cheap shoes should alert you. Stick to the "middle ground" and you will be able to choose shoes according to your taste and budget.
If possible, buy two pairs of wedding shoes at once. High-heeled shoes are for solemn registration and photo sessions, and a simpler and more convenient option is for continuing the holiday, walking and dancing.
Wedding shoes should complement the overall look of the bride. High-heeled shoes are suitable for a classic dress with a fluffy skirt, model pumps for a modest retro outfit, and for an open, light summer dress, buy sandals. If the bride chooses an Empire style wedding dress, Greek style sandals will perfectly complement her look.
Take a sample of fabric from a wedding dress from a shoe store to maintain a uniform color scheme.
It is good if the same or similar decorative elements are present on the wedding dress and on the shoes. For example, if there are laces in the dress, let the shoes also be "laced".
It is better not to buy shoes with rhinestones or large stones, especially if the bride has a long dress. Jewelry will inevitably cling to the hem and ruin the outfit.
To keep your feet looking graceful, opt for shoes with a rounded toe. If you want to make your feet look thinner, choose shoes with a pointed toe.
It is better to refuse very high heels, the celebration should not be overshadowed by tired and swollen legs. Go for sleek, but more stable shoes.
An excellent solution is to buy shoes that you can wear after the wedding, in which case even the high price will pay off with the long-term wearing of them. You can find good bridal shoes not only in specialized salons, there are also good options in ordinary shoe stores.
Be sure to take your wedding shoes for a test drive. Even a few fittings will not give complete confidence in the quality and comfort of the shoe.
Deliver your shoes neatly a few days before the wedding. You do not need to walk in them on the street, it is enough just to carry them around the house for one to two hours every day.
It will not be superfluous to put an adhesive plaster in your purse on your wedding day, even if the shoes have successfully passed the preliminary tests, it may come in handy.
