Bridal shoes to look and feel the best on your special day
Marilyn Monroe once said “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”. I couldn’t agree more! But if your shoes only look pretty without giving you comfort, it might be a total waste of money and that gorgeous looking pair will be lying in your shoe closet for years together, untouched.
Tips on finding the perfect bridal shoes for you —
- First, choose your wedding outfit and carry a swatch of the fabric when you go shoe shopping. Have a peep into a minimum of 4 stores, to see the variety and then choose the one you are 100% sure of.
- Take someone along – your mother, sister or friend, to help in guiding you and giving constructive advice.
- If you’re not comfortable in really high heels but want a bit of added height, consider lower kitten heels or when tired, slip into flat sandals or ballerinas like the ones below—
- Steer away from stilettos for an outdoor wedding. Pointed heels do not work well in grass, sand, or soil. Opt for wedges and platform heels as they’ll give you good support on uneven terrains.
- When shopping for bridal shoes, shop towards the end of your day as our feet tend to swell over the course of the day, and that’s when your feet are largest.
- After you purchase the shoes, walk with them around the house so that they adjust to your feet. If you are dancing on your sangeet, practice in them as well.
- Don’t forget to carry a handful of band-aids just in case you land up with shoe bites.
Finally, here are the most stunning bridal shoes that I have come across! Am sure that any bride-to-be will want to own atleast one pair of shoes from this collection. Each image has been linked to it’s original source in case you choose on purchasing them. For some ‘fun trivia’ on shoes, don’t forget to read till the end of the post! Enjoy 🙂
- Six-inch-high heels were worn by the upper classes in seventeenth-century Europe. Two servants, one on either side, were needed to hold up the person wearing the high heels.
- The word “stiletto” and the word “style” have the same origin. Both come from the Latin “stylus” translated – small metal blade or pointed object resembling a pencil in size and shape, with which the Romans wrote on wax plates.
- The boots Neil Armstrong walked on the moon in are still floating around in space.
- In Hungary the groom drinks a toast to his bride out of her wedding slipper.
