Choosing Your Wedding Shoes

Wedding Shoes

Finding the perfect wedding shoes can be a challenging journey. They must be the perfect fit and perfectly fit the style, color and the dress. There is more to your shoes than the fit and the match. You need to command your wedding shoes as you waltz beneath a spotlight and walk the aisle without tripping head over heels. These tips will help you find the perfect wedding shoes.

Dress Before the Wedding Shoes

You should always purchase the dress before the wedding shoes. This might sound out of order, but it is the same rule that applies to every wardrobe. Your wedding dress will be the most important piece of your ensemble. Everything else should be picked to match the dress.

Matching the Style

Your wedding shoes should match the style of your wedding. If you are planning a rustic garden wedding with a bohemian or empire dress, you might want a simple sandal or country boots. An elegant ballroom affair might call for a classy heel with thin straps. If you will be wearing an A-line gown, mermaid gown, trumpet gown or slit skirt, then your sophisticated look demands sophisticated wedding shoes. If you can command a higher heel, choose thin straps, a deep arch and a tapered stiletto heel. If you have difficulty walking in high heels, a small platform in the ball of the shoe can decrease the arch and make balancing a little easier. High heels are not required. However, the style will be altered by a wide and chunky heel or a wedge. Thicker straps will also change the look. If you are thinking elegant, think delicate, thin and simple. Let your wedding shoes match the dress.

Wedding Shoes

Matching Color

Matching the color of your wedding shoes to your dress is important. Matching the shade of the color is of equal importance. Have you ever placed a navy shirt next to navy pants to realize the color was slightly off? This is because there are different shades of every color, and different fabrics absorb color differently. If you are unable to match the shade exactly, select a contrasting color that coordinates with the dress. Silver and gold will compliment and contrast other colors well.

What Really Matters

The most important part of your wedding shoes is how they make you feel. This is a day for smiles and celebration. The memory of your wedding day should not be a painful one. Make sure your shoes are comfortable and your feet can command their movement. Wear the shoes that make you smile.
