Finding the Perfect Pair of Wedding Shoes

Now that you’ve chosen the perfect wedding dress, it’s time to find a great pair of shoes that will be an ideal complement to the dress on your big day.

One main factor to take into account when choose wedding shoes is comfort. When choosing shoes, brides often not realize how much time is spent on their feet during the wedding day. Between the wedding ceremony, photos and the reception (much of which is spent literally running around trying to thank all of your guests for coming), it’s imperative to have a pair of shoes that provide comfort for all of the constant moving.

This should be kept in mind while shopping for shoes. You may fall in love with an elegant pair of high heels, but after a long day of standing, walking, dancing, etc. the last thing you want is to be in pain. This is why it’s becoming a more popular trend to wear shoes that are of a wide width style and can withstand the amount of time that you’re on your feet.

There are many suitable options of wedding shoes, which again will vary based on certain factors (wedding dress, length of wedding/reception, etc.). These include pump, high heels, or flat sandals, all of which can be ideal depending on the type of wedding.

The fabric of the shoe is also a factor. Traditionally, wedding shoes are silk or satin, with the fabric matching the wedding dress as closely as possible. For example, if the dress is made of silk or other shiny fabrics then satin shoes are more ideal. If your dress is of a more dull fabric such as chiffon or crepe, the shoes should match that fabric as well.

Another element is the overall type of wedding. If it’s a more casual, your shoes should be more casual as well. There are many options available, in a variety of styles and patterns, so you should pay close attention to the general themes of the wedding, as well as the style of the dress you are wearing, and pick the shoes that best fit.
