What To Remember When Buying A Pair For The Big Day?

About to buy the wedding shoes? Make sure to remember the following points!

  • The shoes you buy will be what you wear – this sounds like a very obvious statement, and for all reasons involved, it probably is. However, many brides tend to be dazzled by the sheer beauty or design of certain types of shoes that they seem to forget that they themselves will be the ones to wear them. It doesn’t matter how beautiful the stilettos you saw were, if they have a twelve-inch heel to them, they probably don’t sound like a very good idea (especially if you rarely wear high heels!). Remember to factor in the comfort of wearing any type of shoes – this is why many brides ultimately decide to go with bridal shoes with low heels or flats. The flats can be very chic and have a ‘cute’ appeal to them – and they are guaranteed to not give hell to your feet!
    • Get the measurements! – this point is especially important if you are going to have custom-made shoes. The boutique in charge of your wedding dress will no doubt need to make some adjustments to the dress, and they will definitely need the height of the shoes for that end. This is to ensure that the dress does not end up either too short or too long for you. If you are going with store-bought shoes, you can always take the shoes with you, but usually, it is better to take the measurements first, and take the shoes with you for the very last fit-on.
      • Dyeing is an option – there are many types of bridal shoes, and whilst the first and common option is to with store-bought, factory-made shoes, know that this is not the only option. With the advent of the internet today, you can definitely opt for homemade, custom shoes that boast of a personal touch that you can’t find in your everyday, regular shoes. Or you can also buy your shoes from the store, and then you can dye bridal shoes to give them a more personal touch!
        • Themes and venues – make sure to think about the theme of the wedding when you buy footwear. This applies both to you and the bridesmaids. Certain locations do not go well with heels and other fancy shoes – the best and most recurring example is the beach. Other traditional localities might have certain special restrictions – for example, stilettos being off-limits if they can damage the parquet or wooden flooring.
          • Walk around in them! – To conclude, walk around in your shoes to get them to fit your shoes properly. If they are heels and you don’t usually wear heels, this is also a good opportunity to get used to them – so that you won’t trip or fall on the fateful day!
