The Right Shoes to Complement your Wedding Gown

Stylish wedding shoes should be part of the equation when deciding on all the key looks making up your wedding wardrobe—from the bridal shower and rehearsal dinner to your walk down the aisle, after-party, and post-nuptial brunch. Of course, comfortable bridal footwear is a priority, but style is equally important; wearing a long gown is no excuse for shoes that don't feel special. Another reason not to wait to shoe shop? You'll need your chosen pair in time for your first wedding dress fitting to ensure an appropriate hem length.
Plan to shop for your big day shoes in the afternoon or evening rather than the morning. This will give you a better idea of how they'll fit on the wedding day. Your wedding venue will play a huge role in determining what kind of shoes you need. You might want sandals for a beachfront celebration, a pair of sturdy heels for a mountainside ceremony, or wedge heels for a wedding taking place in the garden. Purchase your shoes well before your wedding so you have time to break them in. Walk around the house, practice your first dance, and go up and down the stairs to get a good sense of how they'll feel on your wedding. If your chosen pair isn't comfortable and additional wear isn't helping, a professional shoe repair person can stretch the material or tweak the sole to make your shoes more forgiving.
Whether you're shopping for fanciful heels, lovely platforms, sparkly pumps, or something blue, all (if not most) of the bridal shoes you choose should be styles you'll wear again and again. Keep versatility and longevity in mind: Timeless pumps, strappy sandals, and metallic heels will go the distance for future events and outfits of all kinds. Lucky for you, our bridal collection has so much variety and styles that you will absolutely fall in love with!
