Wedding Shoes 101 – What You Need to Know

Wedding shoes, what to wear? Here are some ideas for you to think of as you make that decision:

Dye those satin shoes. Are you planning on an ivory gown? How about a more daring shade of pink? Satin shoes come in various styles and can be dyed to match any colour a bride desires. Allow 2 – 3 weeks for the dyeing process. Keep dyed shoes away from moisture and rain to prevent the dye from running.

Shop for the shoes later in the day. Your feet expand during the day. Shopping later in the afternoon provides you with a more accurate fit. This is vital since you will be on your feet, on the go, and in your shoes, for many hours celebrating your wedding day!<br /><br />

Running shoes for the dance floor. Purchase a white pair of runners and thread them with ribbon to match your wedding colour scheme. Wear them when your feet get tired and use them on the dance floor!

Scruff the bottoms of your shoes. Practice walking in your wedding shoes ahead of time to stretch them out and scruff the bottoms. This will prevent you from slipping on the wedding day and your shoes will be more comfortable.

Purchase shoes before first fitting. You will need your wedding shoes for your first fitting. This will help you to gauge the proper length of your gown. A gown that drags in the front will only lead to trips, falls, and a crumpled, messy look.

Your wedding shoes will be a reflection of who you are. Choose a pair of shoes that complements your gown and the formality of the event. A sexy romantic gown calls for a sexy romantic shoe. A more casual affair may call for bedazzled flip flops and sunscreen! Grab a girlfriend, book off an afternoon, get a pedicure, and shop for shoes to your hearts’ content!
