Every bride should feel amazing on her Wedding Day – and if you’re like most women, nothing makes you strut your stuff quite like a great pair of shoes.
Your bridal footwear offers the perfect opportunity to showcase your personality and have some fashion fun on what can otherwise be a very traditional occasion. But blisters are never in style, so the first thing to consider is comfort.
You’ll be in your wedding shoes all day and may be dancing in them all night, so whether they’re stilettos, ballet flats, or even UGGS, your wedding foot wear needs to be a good fit.
TIP: If your shoes are not comfortable when you try them on, they won’t feel better after a day on your feet.
TIP: Take the length and style of your gown into consideration when selecting your shoes.
Short or tea-length gowns are a great excuse to showcase your personality through a shoe with colour or a pattern. Adding a splash of colour can also be fun under a long, more traditional dress.
TIP: Spike heels may not be the best choice if you’re wearing a delicate lace gown – and skinny stilettos are a definite no-no for the beach or garden setting.
Some brides take it one step further and have custom-designed shoes made especially for their wedding day – like these created for an Elm Hurst bride by Figgie Shoes.
Others prefer a more relaxed look and wear sneakers or a favourite pair of cowboy boots under their formal attire.
Whatever you choose, remember it’s your day. Don’t be afraid to kick up your heels and have some fun!
Whether you choose to dance barefoot in our fountain or hit the dance floor in designer stilettos, the dedicated wedding professionals at Idlewyld Inn & Spa and Elm Hurst Inn & Spa will make your Wedding Day one to remember.
