How to Choose Your Wedding Shoes

One very important piece of your wedding day fashion is the pair of shoes that you decide to wear. You not only want them to look fabulous with the gown that you found at our South Florida wedding dress store, but they need to be comfortable enough to wear all day long too. The following tips from Angelus Bridal & Formals should help you to accomplish both of those things. 

Comfort is key

As we mentioned before, looking good is an important quality for your wedding shoes, but if they're not comfortable, you won't be able to wear them for very long. On your wedding day, you will need to wear those shoes for a very long time. 

Stick with a heel height that you are used to. If you don't normally wear five-inch heels, today is not the day to start. Make sure that you have necessary things to add extra comfort, like heel cushions, non-slip insoles, and padded heel grips. No one will see them, but you'll be very glad they are there. 

Buy shoes right away

As soon as you have decided on the dress, shoes need to be found as quickly as possible. It may take you some time to find exactly the right pair, or they may even need to be special-ordered. You will want to have them available at every dress fitting so that the hem ends up the correct length. Find shoes early so that you have them on hand.  

Break them in

Another reason to get your shoes early on is so that you can break them in. We don't mean wear them out and about. Occasionally wear them around the house so that they are not stiff on the wedding day. This is also a great way to find out if any part of the shoe might cause blisters and take care of that problem before it can happen. 

Quality before budget

Since you will be wearing and moving around in your shoes for hours on the wedding day, this is not an area to skimp on price. Natural materials form easier around your feet, are more comfortable, and last longer than synthetic materials. Don't choose a cheap pair that won't hold up for you the entire day. Instead, make sure the shoes you deicde on are made of high-quality materials. 

Shop late in the day

Trying on shoes after a day full of activity will give you the best fit. Everyone's feet swell a little throughout the day, and trying on shoes later in the day will be most like the fit you will have after all of the wedding activity and a night full of dancing. 

Keep a backup pair

We don't expect you to buy two pair of your wedding shoe, but in the case of a broken heel or some other similar mishap, you will want to have a spare pair with the same heel size available. It's also wise to have an even more comfortable pair of flats for the ride home after the reception. 

Have some fun

Your shoes are the perfect place to incorporate some of your personality. With a short dress, it will be apparent for all to see. Long dresses deserve a fun shoe too. The occasional glimpse of your fantastic shoes from underneath the skirt will keep a smile on your face. You can add a pop of color with shoes, or even have them custom painted to match your wedding theme. 

The shoes your choose to go with your wedding dress need to help you make it comfortably through the entire day and night. The bridal consultants at our Pompano Beach wedding dress store can help you to decide which types of shoes may work the best with your bridal gown. Another step in the wedding fashion process is finding the other amazing accessories that you will wear. When you are ready for that step, Angelus Bridal & Formals is here to help you do it beautifully.
