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.

Its no secret that I love to wear a lot of black however it can be tough to find the right colors to go with an all black look. I felt these Aria booties were a nice complement to my look together with the pashmina. There is also something about lace up shoes that adds an element of preppy chic which I love.

You can wear these booties with pretty much anything. I wore mine with black jeans and next time I think I will wear them with blue cropped jeans and a brown wool blazer. Because the Aria bootie comes in different colors including black, blue, dark green, brown and khaki there is definitely something for everyone.

Trend Alert : The pointy toe is back !

I am so glad pointy toes are back because I really could not stand the chunky platform heels. I find that pointy heels give a strong statement of elegance. To be honest with you I never stopped wearing the pointed toes even when they were out of style.
I love the way they can dress up even the most casual outfit for example a pair of jeans and a t shirt . Pointy heels go with almost everything from dresses to jeans making them a must have in any closet. My favorite way to wear pointy pumps is with a great pair of jeans and a blazer.

Below are a few good examples on how to wear pointed heels .

  • Wear your pointy heels with skinny jeans and a cardigan or blouse for a elegant daytime look. Miranda Kerr nailed it when she paired her black pumps with black skinny pants .

 

  • Pointed toes are great for short girls like myself . Notice how they make her legs look longer.

 

  • The oversize bag balances the look.
  • Pointy pumps look great with slacks and suits making them great for work.
  • I love the way Rihanna paired her pointy pumps with this off white outfit. I am not a big fan of Rihanna but I will give credit where it is due. She looks smashing in this ensemble!
  • Nude colored pumps give the illusion of long legs too.
  • Zoe Saldana paired her pointy pumps with a bright colored dress for a simple yet elegant look.

 

  • You can wear pumps with different styles of dresses from long , short, fitted and  loose.

 

  • For a more edgy look pair your little black dress with leopard print pumps.
