When it comes to the task of planning your wedding, there are innumerable important tasks which need to be taken care of. Each of these jobs is as important as the next and must be given particular attention if your big day is to be anywhere near as special as you deserve. One of the first things that a bride thinks about is her dress, however it is vital that careful considerations is also give to the shoes too.
The first thing to remember when choosing your shoes is to not go for anything too elaborate. There’s no sense it buying shoes which will make you look tall – what’s the point when you’ve already landed the man of your dreams? It is also worth bearing in mind that in most cases your shoes will actually cover your shoes so making a fashion statement with them may not be the most important thing in the world.
On the subject of heels, it is entirely your decision as to whether you go for high or low heels. Wedding shoes don’t necessarily need to be flat, however you may find that there are a much wider selection of different styles of shoes which have a heel of one inch or smaller. You can almost be forgiven if comfort takes a back seat to style, however bear in mind that you will most likely be wearing these shoes all day. You may start the day feeling on top of the world in your beautiful shoes; however the last thing you will want is to finish the day in agony. If your budget will allow it, why not choose some shoes for the wedding ceremony itself and then select another style of wedding shoes for the reception.
Buying wedding shoes can be a frustrating experience as you will be able to get a pair in any size and style, however more often than not the problem that you will face is that they will be white. If you are after white shoes then that’s great, however if you’re after any other colour this could complicate things somewhat as they will require dying. There are specialist suppliers who will be able to take care of this for you, however it would be recommended that you wear the shoes in a little first to make sure that you have chosen a comfortable pair.
One of the best things about wedding shoes is that not only will you will be able to wear them on your special day, but you will be able to keep them for other special occasions and dye them again if necessary. For the bride who is on a budget, a good idea would be to search online to see which of the specialist retailers you find will sell you the shoes you like at the best price. Online shops have lower overheads and this may be reflected in their prices – spend a bit of time searching and see if you can grab yourself a bargain!
