How to choose wedding shoes – some things to consider.

Comfortable fit

Comfortable Wedding Shoes

I’m listing comfortable fit first as it is a consideration not to be underestimated! In your desire to choose a glamorous bridal shoe, comfort is easy to lose sight of yet it is one of the most important things to consider when shopping for wedding shoes.

It is vital to ensure that your wedding shoes fit properly. You will likely be in your bridal shoes and on your feet for many hours on your wedding day.

Once you have bought your wedding shoes, wear them around the house a few times, for at least 30 minutes, to make sure that your feet are comfortable in your shoes.

Wearing shoes that are too small can cause your toes and/or heels to rub and produce painful blisters. Wearing shoes that are too big can cause your feet to slip out of them when you walk, making it easier to trip.

It is worthwhile, for your comfort, to wear a pair of shoes that fit your feet properly on your wedding day.

Heel Height

Choosing bridal shoes with a heel height that you’re comfortable walking in is important. It will reduce the likelihood that you will trip over in your nervousness and also the balls of your feet and your legs will be more comfortable in a heel height that they are used to walking around in.

Another thing to consider when deciding on the heel height of your bridal shoes is the height of the person you are marrying relative to your height. If you are marrying someone taller than you then you may opt for a higher heel but if you are marrying someone on the shorter end of the spectrum then you might look for a low heel.

Lastly, the length of your wedding dress will also factor into the heel height decision.

If your wedding dress is long and covers your wedding shoes then you may opt for a low, comfy heel but if your wedding dress is shorter and shows off your wedding shoes then you might be more inclined to opt for a higher heel.

Your Bridal Dress Style

Choosing shoes that are appropriate for your dress style can make or break your wedding day look.

Something to consider when choosing shoes for any outfit is the outfit itself. What are you wearing? How formal or casual is the occasion? What color is your outfit? These questions will help determine the type of shoes that you choose to wear.

The shoes for your wedding day do not have to match exactly with your bridal outfit, but they should complement each other and coordinate in terms of style.

Wedding Day Location and Weather

White Wedding Boots

The setting and weather on your wedding day should also factor into your choice of bridal shoe.

You may need bridal boots if you’re marrying in a country field or you may need sandals or even bare feet for a beach wedding. If it’s looking likely to rain then you might be cold wearing strappy, open shoes and a better choice might be closed toe and closed heels or boots.

Consider how much time you’ll be wearing your wedding shoes

How long you need to wear your wedding shoes for ties in with the comfort factor really.

You might put the look factor ahead of the comfort factor if you don’t need to wear your wedding shoes for too long.

If your wedding celebrations are going to be an all-day affair or last well into the evening then that will be too long to wear uncomfortable shoes for.

Some brides might wear glamorous shoes for their wedding and have a second pair of comfy slip-on shoes on standby for dancing in. Ballerina flats or flat, comfortable sandals are good options for dancing in.

Experiment with different styles before choosing which ones are right for you!

Before you jump into buying a pair of wedding shoes, you will need to experiment with different styles.

Try out as many as you can, and don’t be afraid to go out of your comfort zone – in terms of style that is! You may surprise yourself!

Pumps are a classic shoe style for brides. Strappy heels are popular in the summer months. It’s also fun when brides put their own twist of fun on their shoe choice – be it their favorite pop of color or chunky boots with a traditional dress.

There are so many options available, from flat shoes that will allow you to dance the night away in ease through to stilettos if it is a more formal affair. Another option if you want to do a lot of dancing is dance shoes – why not try out some ballroom dancing shoes?

Block heels or a wedge heels both provide a sturdy base underfoot. They are great shoe options to try for an outdoor wedding.
