The shoes you choose for your wedding are more important than you might initially think. Unless you are an avid shoe collector, it is often the last “accessory” you think about, but it shouldn’t be. What most brides don’t realize, is that your dress will be hemmed according to your shoes. If you have a high heel your dress will be made longer, but if you decide to go with flats, it will be hemmed to a shorter length. This means that the wedding shoes you choose will stay on your feet the entire day.

In this article, we will give you some tips on what to consider when shopping for the perfect shoe for your perfect day.

What Are Good Wedding Shoes?

A great wedding shoe is a shoe that allows you to feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful! In order to help you find that perfect shoe, we have put together a list of what to look for and how to approach your shoe-shopping journey.

Comfort is a Must

If you have not realized it yet, now is the time to face the fact that you will be standing and walking a lot at your wedding! You have to find comfortable shoes to ensure that you do not walk around in pain after the first hour and end up not enjoying your special day.

Consider the Location

It is important to consider where you are getting married. If you are planning a beach wedding then a high heel option might not be the best idea. But if you are planning a traditional “do” with solid flooring a high-heel will be perfect for the day as when you are in heels your posture improves and your shoulders go back giving an elegant stance.

Check Your Closet

Before you start shoe shopping you should check your current shoe closet for inspiration or guidance. Is there a favorite pair of high-heels that fit you like a glove and you could run a marathon in? Then you should probably look for something similar. If you do not own one pair of heigh-heels you should maybe consider skipping them and opting for a flat instead or even a block heel.

The Toe is Important

If you have realized that you actually never wear heels but are scared that a flat might not look as beautiful and sophisticated, don’t fret! You will most probably not see your shoes when standing and will only glance a peak of the toe of the shoe when walking. Luckily bridal shoe makers have caught on and have created beautiful flat or semi-flat options that will look just as stunning as a traditional heel.

Take Your Style Into Consideration

You might be struggling to choose between a shoe that has a lot of bling and a plain, traditional look. Perhaps you’re wondering if you should have an open-toe or closed shoe. Maybe everyone has an opinion on which shoe you should be wearing. Even consider purchasing a special pair of shoes like our Badgley Mischka collection that you can wear for years to come – perhaps on those special anniversary dinners! At the end of the day, it’s your special day and you should wear what suits your style and makes you feel confident strolling down the aisle to your forever person!
