1. Comfort is key: Wedding shoes should be functional and practical. Ask yourself: Can I walk in these shoes? Will they be comfortable all day? Practice walking in your shoes before the big day.
2. Take your dress into account: Buy shoes that go with your wedding dress. Make sure you purchase your shoes before your first dress fitting so the hem can be the perfect length. If your dress is short, then go for a show stealing embellishment at the back of your shoes.
3. Pick the right heel-height: Choose a heel height that you are comfortable with and you are used to wearing. If you normally wear kitten heels, stay with those heels, or if you love wearing platform heels, pick them for the wedding too. However, you will also need to consider the height of your groom, otherwise your wedding photos may not come out as desired.
4. Theme your shoes: Match the colour of your shoes to your bridesmaid’s dresses or your wedding flowers. Your photos will look special with colour coordination and certain colours such as fuchsia pink and tiffany blue will really make them stand out. Also, you could get your shoes matched with those of the groom. The bride and groom can also wear matching shoes.
