Choose the perfect shoes for your Wedding

Posted On : 17 December 2017 - 03:55 pm


Give girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world”. Shoes are so essential for our day-to-day life, and when it comes to occasions like Wedding, shoes play a significant role to add extra vibes in your attire. I believe wedding shoes are special.  Most wedding dresses will swallow up your beautiful wedding shoes so that only those who are really paying attention might grab a peek at them, but we brides still put extra effort into selecting the perfect pair. Fancy wedding shoes can be expensive.  They can be the pair of shoes that you would usually drool over, sigh a little, and pass up with a reminder to yourself that you wouldn’t wear them often enough to justify the cost. As you wander through them, your assignment is this: select your favorite pair of “conquer-the-world” shoes and wear them very soon.  Even if you’re just having dinner on the deck with that special guy, wow him with that right pair of shoes!
When we brides go out for wedding shopping, we take hours to figure out what to wear and when. With so many functions to be followed and photo shoots, you have a lot to include in your list. Being a bride for the first time, you may end up with so many confusions even on your shoes selection and there are so many factors you would want to consider while choosing the right one for you. Here are some tips to consider when buying the perfect shoes for you:
Comfort and functionality are the key: Perhaps the most important thing to remember when finding any pair of shoes, not just your wedding day ones, is that you will have to walk around in them. You may have found the most beautiful shoe that you’ve been dreaming about, but if you can’t walk in them then they are not the right shoe for you.

Break them in: You’ll need to be wearing your shoes for all of your photos, walking down the aisle, engage whole day for the wedding ceremony. Spend some time walking around on different surfaces, such as carpet, hardwood floors and tile, to see if your shoes are slippery. Try walking up and down a flight of stairs to see if your feet slip out or if they rub uncomfortably. Don’t wait until the actual day to try them out – by breaking your shoes in before the big day you can easily avoid all of these issues.

Match your dress: While matching the shoes as the wedding dress is a tradition, wearing different glittery shoes on silver, gold or whites is in new trend. It’s important to consider how shiny or matte the shoes are as well so that you can see how reflective they are in different types of light. Also, keep in mind that the higher the heel, the longer your dress will have to be. Make sure you buy the appropriate heel height for the length of your dress.

Let your personality shine: If you don’t want to match your shoes to your dress, then try matching your shoes to the color scheme or wedding theme, or wear a pair of Converse sneakers if that’s more your style. There’s no rule that says you have to wear stiletto princess pumps underneath your dress, so choose a pair of shoes that you like best. 

You can wear them again: Unlike your wedding dress, you can definitely wear your wedding shoes again and again after the big day. Finding the perfect balance of price, style, comfort and functionality is not easy, but because your shoes can be worn again, it may be worthwhile to spend a little extra time and money to find the perfect pair. It may also be worthwhile to find a more durable pair than to buy cheap ones just for the occasion so that you can continue to enjoy your shoes for years to come.

Those were some useful tips to consider while buying the shoes for your big day, but what to include for so many pre-and post-wedding functions? what’s in the latest trend? what would be more comfortable for which function? There are so many questions that the bride needs to consider, because either long or short rituals, no bride wants to look out-fashioned or struggle with their comforts. Complement your dresses with the suitable footwear during your wedding functions. Here are some tips on what to wear and when:
Pre- wedding shoot:  Begin the madness with an everlasting pair of neutral pumps. Matte or glossy, doesn’t matter. They look modern, classy and chic with all western as well as ethnic outfits.

Bachelorette: A pair of multi-strap block heels is the right choice to strike a balance between glamour and grace for your bachelorette. It’s the day to put pre-wedding jitters to rest and let your hair down guilt-free with your friends.

Haldi: The reason behind the contagious smile of a bride is a gorgeous pair of shoes. Suit yourself by choosing from a range of Mojaris, Juttis, or Kolhapuris but whichever way you go, remember it needs to be tasteful, colorful, beaded, stunningly embroidered or intricately embellished. They suit best on Patialas, kurtis, and all kinds of salwar-kameez.

Mehendi: Go for the season’s favourite mules for your mehendi day - perfect pick to avoid unfortunate tripping or messy strap twisting, as you would like to be hassle and fuss free in an already henna - full constrained state. The typical wedding material, flat mules, will give you the much need comfort, style, and flexibility.

Cocktail or Sangeet: Wedges are the shoes best fitted to dance the night away. The mighty wedge will allow you to remain sturdy even as you flaunt your most elaborated dance moves without sacrificing the added inches.

Wedding: The traditional red velvet shoes, with the small kitten heels have always played their magic in the wedding attire. But if that is something far away from your choice mood then go for embellished heels: Peep toes will assure the right peek-a- boo to your pedicured toes. Don’t forget to try your wedding footwear with your bridal outfit, choose the heel height and vamp size as per your lehenga and comfort.

Reception: Slender kitten heels with a sling- back are perfect if you have too much of running around.

Back up: Keep a pair of platform flip-flops handy in your car. They are a must-have for destination wedding and super easy to switch between outfits. Flashy flip flops can be your savior if you have a broken heel or shoe wardrobe malfunction. Foam platforms and cushioned soles are an absolute necessity to give your feet the much-needed break from the unbearable pain of slant heels.
