There is no chance that the brides are going to settle for anything when it comes to their wedding shoes. Can you feel me, guys? After all, it is as important as the wedding dress. I can’t understand when people say why so serious and particular about the shoes, you have to wear them only once. Duh! As if we don’t know we have to wear it once. But, why once! Be it an OTT shoe, if we love it, we can flaunt whenever we want. Still, there are some basics which you must consider while buying your dream wedding shoes. Let us see what they are.
1. NOTHING OVER COMFORT
I know we all lust over the gorgeous dazzling pair of heels. But, on the wedding day you will be already wearing a heavy outfit and so wearing something which does not give you utmost comfort, can be a wrong option. Choose the footwear in which you are perfectly comfortable in and in which you can walk properly while balancing the wedding outfit. Shoes having a strap at the back would give you better support.
2. HEEL TYPE THAT SUITS YOU
The second thing which you must consider while selecting the perfect wedding shoes for you is the best type of heels. Block heels are fashionable and better than the pointed heels so go for it. This would give you support and will not kill your feet with pain. Platform heels or the wedges are also perfect to go with the wedding dress.
3. PEEP TOES OR VALENTINOS?
Yes, you must consider that type of footwear in which you feel perfectly fine and you don’t have to practice walking in. The closed toe shoes may not be a good choice so you can go for the peep toes. Also, ankle strap footwear could be a decent option for you. A good idea would be matching your footwear with your dress type.
4. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE COLOUR
There are various rules which you must consider while selecting the color of your footwear. Do not go too matchy-matchy with the outfit. Do not go overboard with the offbeat colors or do not stress over sticking to the clichéd ones. See which colour goes with the outfit, which colour is in trend and which colour looks best on your feet.
5. CHOOSE ACCORDING TO THE VENUE AND THEME
I know you must have never given this a thought but this is extremely important too. Pointed heels can make you uncomfortable if the wedding is a lawn or garden one. So go for platform heels in this case. If the venue is centered around marble floor area, then make sure that wedding shoes have a perfect grip and is not slippery.
6. LOOK FOR MORE OPTIONS
Never settle for anything when it comes to your wedding shoes. So go on and search for more and better options even if you have selected the perfect pair. Search online, offline, designer stores and also the local stores whichever suits your budget and preference. Search until you have found your favorite pair of wedding shoes.
7. PRACTISE WALKING IN IT FOR A MONTH
They say you must practice walking in your wedding shoes at least a week before. But, that is not true. You must start practice walking in them at least a month a before. This will give you enough confidence and also if there is any problem that the shoe gives you can be fixed in time.
