5 simple tips to choose your wedding shoes / by Anh Nguyen

As a producer/wedding concierge at Mott Weddings, I know how many million things the bride needs to worry about for her wedding day. Finding a pair of perfect wedding shoes is absolutely no exceptional, especially when they come in all shapes, sizes, styles and colors. Here are 5 simple tips to help our lovely brides with this difficult task:

Get comfortable

As you will be on your shoes most of the time on your big day, you definitely need to feel comfortable. Shoes with extra padding can be quite helpful in this situation. The last thing you want is the pain on your feet that keeps you away from walking around, greeting guests and having fun.

Consider the fabric

Traditionally, silk and satin are the two popular choices for wedding shoes. However, who says you ought to be traditional? Just find shoes that go well with your wedding dress in terms of texture.

Consider the color and style

While your shoes need to match your dress and your wedding style, they should also be able to reflect your personality. And please remember, white is not the only color for wedding shoes. Don’t be shy away from the color wedding shoes. If you are a little funky or plainly looking for something unique, shoes dyed in bright colors may be the perfect choice for you. On the other hand, if you are into fashion or the chic, elegant look, you may want to have your shoes embellished in crystals or jewel clips.

Find your heel height

As your wedding will be a fairly long day, it is important to have a pair of shoes that you do not only feel comfortable but confident wearing. It is better to stick with the normal heel height that you have been used to. If you usually wear flats, don’t go for sky-high heels on your big day. They will probably end up hurting you and making your posture looking strange during the day. Instead, try kitten heels or sturdy platform heels to add a little extra height.

Don’t forget about your wedding destination!

The setting of your wedding is also a crucial factor to choosing your wedding shoes. If the wedding is held on the sand at the beach, stylish flip-flops, sandals or wedges can work beautifully – even your bare feet with gorgeous accessories would do as well.

Hopefully, these 5 tips will be useful for any brides who are looking their ultimate wedding shoes. And for those who have already got a pair, please don’t wait until your wedding day to put them on, give them a try right now and master them. Good luck!
