Why settle for plain white bridal shoes when you can wear unique wedding shoes that will reflect your personality?
In the past, the choices were very limited for the bride when it came to her wedding shoes. But not any more!
From a flash of red to the sparkle of rhinestones, a bride can now choose to wear any style and color on her feet.
What if you can't find the pair that you have always dreamed of?
Now you can custom design a pair for under $200 at such sites as Design Your Pedestal and Milk and Honey Shoes.
You will need your shoes for the first fitting of your bridal gown, so start searching for your unique wedding shoes early.
Prepare to spend time shoe shopping - a bargain always takes time to find!
Don't just buy the first pair of shoes that catches your fancy. Shop around. If you
don't find anything you like better, you can always come back later.
Remember that stores that sell bridal shoes will have higher prices than stores that sell regular shoes. This goes for other products you will be buying for your wedding.
This is not a day that you will be spending a lot of time sitting down. So be sure that your wedding shoes are really comfortable.
When shopping listen to your feet! If the shoes are not comfortable in the store, then odds are they are not going to get any more comfortable after you buy them.
When you have to stand for a long period of time, a round or square toe shoe offers the most comfort for your feet.
If you choose to wear heels, don't go any higher than two inches. More
and more brides are preferring to wear low-heels or flat wedding shoes
to do their standing and dancing in.
If you have wide feet, be sure to purchase extra wide shoes for more comfort.
If your wedding is outside, consider wearing decorative sneakers with lacy laces or ballroom-dancing shoes. Both are very comfortable and will look just fine under your wedding gown.
Have you always dreamed of wearing sexy wedding shoes to show off during the garter toss?
This is a great time to dazzle your guests with those colored, feathered, or rhinestone wedding shoes that you chose to wear for this very special day.
Strappy sandals and slingback shoes with an open toe are great for that sexy look.
How about some leopard heels or a vintage pair?
This is the time to let your personality shine!
To add some color to your wardrobe without taking the attention away from your gown, purchase shoes that can be dyed.
Dyeable shoes will be completely white when you buy them.
There are no rules when selecting a color. You can dye the shoes to match your gown or dye them to match a flower or ribbon in your bouquet. The more original the better!
Dyeable shoes are available at most department stores, shoe stores, and bridal salons. Be sure to check with the salesperson to verify that the shoes are dyeable before you buy them.
Many of the stores that sell dyeable shoes also offer to color them at no extra charge. If you are not sure about the quality of work from the store, you can also take the shoes to a local shoe dyer who will usually charge from $15 to $35.
If you are looking for designer shoes without the hefty price, then design them yourself!
Trim a plain pair of shoes with ribbon, lace and pearls. With the use of a hot glue gun and your imagination, you can create the perfect wedding shoe.
FEATHERS and BEADS
Feathers and beads are very popular today.
If you like peacock feathers and would like to incorporate them into your wedding, glue a feather to the back heel of each shoe to add a little drama.
Did you chose a plain strappy sandal to wear on your wedding day and would like to jazz them up? Then attach some colorful beads to the straps for a sensational look.
If you waited until the last minute to find those perfect blue shoes, you can always spray paint a pair of shoes the color you want.
Decorate some cheap stockings with a bow or attach a small beaded applique that will show on your ankle.
Choose sheer hose in a shade that will complement your dress.
Don't forget about your bridesmaids!
No longer are brides requiring that their bridesmaids wear the same style and color of shoes. Why have them dye shoes to match a dress that they will probably never wear again?
From flats to personalized flip flops, your bridesmaid's feet and wallet will thank you for your consideration.
Finding the right pair of unique wedding shoes can help to keep your feet happy and stylish.
They will also give your guests a glimpse of the real you!
