Wedding Shoes: Do's and Don'ts

Once you have said yes to the dress, you’ll want the rest of your bridal look to compliment each other. Another main piece, besides your wedding dress, is your wedding shoes. Many brides tend to underestimate a pair of designer wedding shoes. So, we have gathered a list of the do’s and don’ts of wedding shoes for all the brides-to-be out there!

Do Invest In A Designer Pair

Your wedding day is the best day of your life, and your feet shouldn’t have to suffer during this all important day! Wedding shoes need to be comfortable, supportive, and fashionable. However, it can be difficult to find all three features in one pair of shoes. That’s why designer wedding shoes are worth the investment, offering the best overall experience on your big day. When it comes to wedding shoes, comfort is key but who said you can’t still look stylish while walking down the aisle? 

Don’t Be Afraid Of Colour

The most popular colour associated with weddings is white or ivory. White symbolises purity and is worn by brides in many royal weddings such as Princess Diana, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle. However, a traditional white wedding may not be for every bride. One of the best ways to add colour is to choose our Hetty style in bordo red, forest green or midnight blue. So, don’t be afraid to break the rules!

Do Have An Idea Of Your Size

Before you start wedding shoe shopping, it’s important to have an idea of what size you are. Different brands can vary in sizes. For example, a size 5 in one brand can be slightly different in another brand. To help you find your most suitable shoe size, have a look at our size conversion chart. If you order a pair of made-to-order shoes, we will send you a sample of shoes to ensure a perfect Cinderella fit!

Don’t Forget to Carry Flats

Many brides can wear high heels all day and night but if you find yourself with sore feet on your wedding day, it can be a bit of a problem. We recommend carrying an extra pair of flats with you. It can be difficult to find a matching pair of flats to your wedding shoes. Luckily, our range of flat shoes are both comfortable and come in similar styles to our stylish wedding shoes without interfering with your bridal look.

Do Store Them Properly

After your big day, it’s important to store your wedding pieces properly to prevent any further damage. To keep your wedding shoes as good as new, we advise you to store them in their original box and wrap them in tissue paper or in a dustbag. This will prevent them from getting scratched, dusty or dirty.

Don’t Store Them Forever

Many brides never wear their wedding shoes after their big day, because they’re too sentimental and don’t want to risk damaging them. But, what if there was a way to re-wear them again and again? We offer a dyeing service for our satin shoes including our embellished styles to be re-coloured and worn after your wedding. Fall in love with your wedding shoes all over again!
