On your special day you do not want to walk down the aisle in a pair of shoes that cause you pain or do not fit right. No matter the style, choose a pair of shoes that makes you feel comfortable and coordinates with your outfit. Read on to learn more about wedding shoes.

Before You Shop

Determine a budget for your wedding shoes before you go shopping. Price is often a factor to consider when purchasing wedding shoes. Remember that shoes are an accessory; always buy your dress first. Know what kind of look you desire for your overall attire.

Consider the style of your bridal gown and choose your shoes accordingly. For example, if your dress is very traditional you might want to choose a more formal shoe. If you are getting married on the beach, then flip-flops or casual sandals might be an option.

When to Shop

After buying your wedding dress, it is time to go shoe shopping. It is recommended to shop for shoes in the afternoon rather than the morning; some feet have a tendency to swell throughout the day.

Types of Wedding Shoes

Have an idea of the type of shoe you want before you shop. The choice of available shoe styles is massive including pumps, platforms, stilettos, kitten heels, wedge, open toe, T-straps, Mary Janes, ballerinas, gladiators, boots, Crocs, mules, clogs, slingbacks, sneakers, flats, oxfords, cowboy boots and flip flops. There are also fabrics to consider such as leather, suede, patent, cotton, snake skin, synthetic or satin.

Consider if you want a plain or an embellished pair.

Finding the Perfect  Shoes

Factors to consider when shopping for wedding shoes include comfort, style, color and heel height.

Make comfort one of your top priorities when choosing your wedding shoes. Bear in mind, that you will be wearing your shoes all day from the ceremony to the just-after pictures to dancing the night away at your reception. Experiencing blisters or foot pain of any kind is never a desirable option on your wedding day.

Take a fabric swatch from your dress to assist with color matching. This is especially helpful for dresses that feature ivory or white shades, these colors have many variations.

Things To Do After Purchasing Your Shoes

Bring your new shoes you to your dress fitting. This will allow the hem length to be adjusted correctly. If you suspect you might want to take your shoes off while dancing communicate this to your tailor to ensure proper hemming is applied.

Be sure to allow some time for breaking in your wedding shoes before your big day.
