How To Find The Perfect Wedding Shoe

A wise woman once said, "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!" Today, we're sharing our top tips on how to find the perfect wedding shoe.

Know your venue

No bride wants to be uncomfortable on her wedding day, and rightfully so. Make sure your shoes compliment your venue - we don't think anyone wants to tackle a cobble stone walkway in sky-high stilettos!

If your venue's terrain is flat and you're comfortable in heels, go for those gorgeous platform heels you've had your eye on. But, if you plan on being outdoors all day, we strongly recommend that you relook the idea of wearing your highest pair of heels. Flats are so trendy and you can dance the night away minus the sore feet and blisters (ouch)!

Find your dress first

We know that shoe shopping is really exciting, but first things first ladies! You'll need to find your dress first - trust us, you'll need those shoes to complement every aspect of your dress. And you do want those picture perfect shots too, right?!

Don't delay shoe shopping

We know that we just said you shouldn't rush into the shoe hunt, but we're still sticking to the fact that you'll need your dress sorted out first. Once your dress is on track, start that shoe hunt as you'll need to take them with to every fitting and alteration.

Shop around

Browse your local malls and online stores to get an idea of what's available. Once you know what you're looking for and most importantly, what would work with your dress, you can start narrowing down your options until you find "the one".

Don't rush into buying the first pair you lay eyes on. Trust us, next week you'll fall in love with a different pair and you really don't want to end up with five pairs of wedding shoes. Remember, research is key!

Try something different

Don't be shy to make a statement with your shoes - especially if your dress is quite simple. There's no need to stick with white shoes...colour and textures are all the rage right now! Be daring, be bold and most importantly, be you!

We love it when brides take risks - these usually make for absolutely breathtaking photographs!
