When looking at our wide range of stunning shoes, you may fall in love with a pair instantly. Sometimes, the perfect wedding shoes are the very first pair you seek out. But more often than not, brides spend endless hours searching for their dream pair of wedding shoes. If you are struggling to decide what you want due to the sheer amount of choice, it’s important to take a step back and reassess what you need, what you want and what you should take into consideration. Here are our top tips for choosing the right wedding shoes.
Know your height restrictions
When you think of wedding shoes, a large majority of brides-to-be will begin imagining a stunning pair of heels. However, unless you are used to strutting your stuff in 7 inch heels on a daily basis, we would recommend reassessing your height restrictions. Some girls feel right at home in those higher heels that add height and length. But you should always consider what height will honestly be comfortable for you on your special day. There a wide variety of heel sizes to choose from, so you should never instantly assume that bigger is better. Medium, small or non-existent heels may provide much more comfort, look much better with your dress and complement your legs and body type better than any 7 inch heel would. Know your height restrictions, but if you feel confident and comfortable in a higher heel, we say go for it!
Flexibility, wear ability, stability
When considering what wedding shoes you want to buy, you should always consider what you will be doing throughout the entire day. Every wedding is different, but there has been a notable change as more and more couples are opting for a more active and outdoorsy style day. Pick wedding shoes that will allow flexibility, wear ability and stability throughout the entire day. If you are switching from hard indoor flooring to grass half way through the day, it may be better to consider flats. Or, if you are spending a great deal of time doing strenuous dancing, you will want to make sure that your heels won’t fly off half way through. Take every stage of the day into consideration and ensure your shoes are versatile enough to be wearable in a variety of different situations.
Sizing is everything
If your shoe size is wrong you can say good bye to your happy, comfortable wedding day. When buying wedding shoes you should always try on several sizes to see which one is the best fit. You don’t want to be losing your shoe half way down the aisle, but at the same time you don’t want to be struggling to walk due to a cramped foot. If your shoes are the wrong size, don’t just keep them because you like them! We supply an extensive range of beautiful wedding shoes and you are sure to fall in love with a pair that is better suited to your feet.
Consider the weather
If you are having a wedding in hot weather, you should remember that your feet will also naturally swell. If possible, try on your shoes in similar weather and conditions and try to walk around in them as much as possible. You should also take into consideration whether your feet would be more comfortable in an open-toe or closed toe shoe. Closed shoes will provide better protection for colder, wetter and windier weather. The last thing you want is to be suffering from cold feet throughout the whole day. The open-toe is preferable if you are tying the knot on a warmer day or in a hotter destination. Naturally, the weather can often be impossible to predict, but you should try your best to opt for wedding shoes that will best suit the conditions.
Happy feet, happy bride
Being comfortable is so important on your wedding day, so you should always make sure that your wedding shoes always have the right amount of padding to suit you. You should always consider whether insoles will help you to be able to wear the shoes for longer too. However, the wedding shoes from our site are all designed for comfort just as much as they are designed for style. So, have a pedicure to help soften your skin and give your toes a great colour, so you can wear your wedding shoes feeling happy and confident that you made the perfect choice.
