A gown might steal the show, but a pair of white wedding shoes really seals the deal for a bridal ensemble. If you're a footwear fanatic, then we're sure you've already drawn up a list of shoe options for the big day and the festivities leading up to it. However, if you haven't gotten around to picking out a pair of heels (or flats!), then there are a few things worth considering.
First, heel height. If you're used to wearing high heels and enjoy the extra lift, then the sky's the limit. But if you generally opt for flats or a low block heel, consider a mid-length so you're not in pain by the end of the night. Another design detail to think about is the overall silhouette. Do you want to wear pumps? Perhaps an ankle-strap sandal? Or slingbacks? If you're not sure, refer back to your dress hemline and aesthetic. We also know that finding the right accessory to complement your look can be overwhelming, so if all else fails, remember this: A minimalist strappy sandal or a traditional pump works well with almost anything.
What to Look for When Buying White Wedding Shoes
Now that you've got some inspiration for that ideal bridal shoe, it's time to consider a few logistics. While it may not be as glamorous, the last thing you want to worry about are your stilettos sinking into the grass (or being so uncomfortable that you end up going barefoot). So before you hit "Add to Cart" on those beauties, remember to evaluate all the aspects of your big day. Is your wedding venue indoors or will you have to walk through grass or gravel? Opt for flats if you'll be walking (or dancing) on uneven ground. Still want some height? Go for block heels or wedges. Most importantly, comfort truly is key if you want to fully enjoy your day and remain presentâ€”but, that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice style! Break in your heels prior to the wedding day in order to ensure optimal comfort. But heyâ€”wearing them to your bridal shower, engagement party, or even out to dinner with your S.O. just means you get to flaunt those stunners even more!
If you're throwing a seaside or garden wedding, make sure to choose shoes that are sand and grass friendly like block heels or flats. For more formal affairs, high heels always make for a timeless statement.
Yes, but it depends on the style, heel height, and finding the right width for your feet. For brides looking to add comfort and support, pumps with a kitten or block heel will make the journey from the aisle to the dance floor pain and blister free.
