How to choose wedding Shoes

Now that you have found your wedding dress, the next item on your list are the shoes. Understandably choosing the dress is the highlight of the entire process but the shoes deserve some thought and excitement too. The wrong shoes can ruin an entire outfit, so you do not want that to happen with one of the most glamorous outfits you will ever wear.

Christian Louboutin​​​​​​​ So Kate glitter pump

For my wedding I knew I wanted a shoe that had some height, not too over the top but still screamed glam. The Christian Louboutin​​​​​​​ So Kate glitter pump was the perfect match for my dress and checked all the boxes of what I was looking for. I shopped for shoes with my mother and we both knew it was the one the moment we saw it.

Things to consider when choosing wedding shoes

First things first, you should only choose the shoe after the dress. The dress determines the style of shoe you will pick. For example, if your dress is short and simple then your shoe has to have a wow factor. Other important things to consider are:

  • The length of your dress. Once you have decided on your dress it is highly recommended to take the actual shoe you like to the dress fitting. This will allow the taylor to make the dress the perfect length. For example for my dress, although it was long I still wanted a tiny bit of my shoe to be visible under the dress. The tailor was able to customize the length to allow this.
  • The Venue. Remember you will be walking around and taking photos. For example if you are having a beach or garden wedding, super high heels may not make sense. You should also consider wearing heel protectors if you will be walking in the grass. My dress was long so I was able to remove my heels during the photo session which involved walking down a hill.
  • Style of dress and wedding. If you have a vintage style wedding dress or vintage theme then you probably want a shoe that complements that theme. A casual beach wedding will require a much simpler style of shoe. Basically the shoe should not look like an after thought.
  • Comfort. Last but not least the comfort level of your shoe is very important. There is nothing more unattractive than a seeing a woman limping and looking very uncomfortable on her wedding day. You want to look and feel the best on your day so take care of your feet.
