7 Points to Consider When Buying Your Wedding Shoes

Large

There’s no doubt that you want to stun on your wedding day! You’re meticulously putting little pieces together to hopefully form the bridal look that you’ve always dreamed of. One of the many details you want to pay attention to is your wedding shoes. And before purchasing the pair, you want to make sure that all the below points are covered:

1. Comfort and ease of movement:

The first thing we focus on when buying wedding shoes is the style and look of the pair, however, comfortability and the ability to move in them should come first because if these two factors aren’t present, you’ll eventually take off the shoes from all the pain your heels will be giving you. The first thing to consider here is the heel, you need to go for a length you can easily prance in. The longer the heels, the harder it will be for you to stay in them. When you find a pair that you like, try them on, walk in them, test them, and if they don’t feel right, put them back where you got them.

2. Breaking your shoes in:

Your wedding day is going to be a long and exhausting day and the shoes that you’re buying will be stuck to your feet that whole time. You have got to break the shoes in after buying them. Settling on a pair isn’t the end of the journey, after bagging them and still being able to return or change them, you gotta put them on and walk around in them at home. However, make sure that the surface you’re walking on is clean, so not to ruin or scratch the new pair.

It’s best to keep the shoes on for a whole hour and to stand in them for quite some time. If you can’t handle one hour in your new shoes, then they’re not the right pair for you.

3. Choosing the right color:

Even if your wedding dress is long, your shoes will definitely show at some point, so don’t slack and go with something that is “Meh”, something that you’re not entirely sure about. The color of your shoes has to go with the color of your dress, which doesn’t mean that they both have to be the same color. It’s entirely up to you to choose the color shoes you want as long as it goes with your personality, your dress, and the overall theme of the wedding.

If you’re more on the traditional side, you’ll probably directly run to white, champagne, off-white, or ivory. But if you feel the need to change things up a bit but also do not want to go entirely wild with the color, you can go with silver, gold, or rose gold.

The best way to choose the right color for your wedding shoes is to take a piece of the dress’s fabric along with you when going shoe-hunting.

4. Unleashing the true you:

If heels aren’t really your thing, you can always change into something more practical, like your Superstars or Reeboks, the moment the whole official wedding shenanigans are over. You can even change into your combats or sandals. Whatever it is, let it be something that reflects who you are.

 Remember, your comfort truly should come first.

5. The right shoes for the right place:

Let’s agree that there are shoes that can’t be worn to certain places, simply because it’s not practical to do so. For example: If you’re having a beach wedding, you really shouldn’t consider long, thin heeled stilettos. Instead, you should go for wedge or block heels. As long as you can make sense of your choices, you’ll be fine.

6. Reusing wedding shoes:

Unlike most wedding dresses, wedding shoes can totally be repurposed! So bear in mind this idea and maybe go for a pair you know won’t go to waste the moment the celebrations are over. Think of all the events, parties, wedding that you’re going to need heels for. Adding another pair of heels to your shoe collection will definitely be a delight. 

7. The Backup plan:

Having a plan B is always a plus, especially for big occasions and important matters. In this case, you gotta keep another pair of wedding shoes on you in case anything goes wrong, like your heel breaking. That way, you won’t have to worry about problems that could easily be avoided.
