How to choose the perfect pair of shoes for your wedding

By  |  0 Comments

Can’t decide on a shoe for your big day? We have some tips to help you choose the perfect pair of shoes for your wedding that will make the decision that much easier.

1. TAKE YOUR DRESS INTO CONSIDERATION

Stumbled upon your dream wedding shoes but haven’t bought your dress yet? We recommend wait a little before snatching them up because you want your shoes to complement the dress. If the length of your dress is shorter, then your shoes need to make a statement – go for a pop of colour or a shoe with some glitz and glam. If your dress length is on the longer side wear shoes that are comfortable and simple.

2. KNOW YOUR VENUE

Much like checking the weather before you step outside in the correct pair, the venue you’re having your wedding at should influence the type of heel and heel height you wear. Trust us, you don’t want to find yourself wearing pencil-thin stilettos anywhere near grass, rough paving or lots of stairs.

4. COMFORT FIRST

Always prioritise comfort. Always. If your shoes are hurting you and all you can think about is taking them off, then is having them really worth it? Go for a lower heel or a block heel so there’s less pressure on the balls of your feet. Choosing this option also means you will be able to stand a lot longer and be able to dance the night away with ease! And if you really must have that dream pair, shop a fancy pair of flats as well, in case you need backup halfway through the event.

4. THE REAL TEST COMES AFTER YOU BUY THEM

If your shoes can be returned, a good way to test whether they’re a good fit is to wear them – standing – for at least an hour (indoors, ideally on a clean surface). Take them grocery shopping or cook your dinner in them one night. If you find it too difficult, they may not be the shoes for you.
