Here at Pink Daisy Bridal, we are often asked by Brides-to-be for advice when it comes to choosing the perfect pair of Wedding shoes. Tim Downer, co-founder of Pink Daisy Bridal, looks at some of the most popular tips in choosing your wedding shoes.
There are a number of factors to consider, so here is the second part of our essential 12 tips to help you find the perfect Bridal Shoe for your Special Day broken down into a mini series over the next few days, so please come back and read the rest of our top tips:
Many Brides often focus on the wedding dress and leave the shoes until the very last minute! Make sure you purchase your shoes before your first dress fitting, so the height of the hem can be made the perfect length to the shoes that will be wearing on the day.
Remember that if you are wearing a shorter wedding dress, your shoes will be on constant display, so make sure they are flattering.
The majority of Brides will prefer to go for heels and it is important to pick the right heel height for you. We advise choosing a heel height that you’re comfortable with and are used to wearing. If you normally wear 4 inch heels, then why change this on your wedding day! You know you will be comfortable.
However, if you don’t normally wear very high heels, your wedding day is not the best day to pick to experiment! If you want a bit of height, but are not used to wearing stilettos, why not consider platform heels, or the lower, kitten heels?
And of course, if you prefer, flat satin ballet slippers make beautiful bridal shoes too. However, regarding the height of your heels, you will also need to consider the height of your groom for your wedding photographs! While this is not an issue for many, some taller brides worry about being taller or close in height to their new husband on the wedding day, and if this is you consider lower heels or flats instead.
We hope that the above tips and advice has been a helpful guide to you and helps you in your quest in choosing your shoes for your special day. Please look out for the rest of our mini series in our Guide to choosing your Perfect Wedding Shoes.
