Dream It Yourself has come up some tips for choosing your bridal shoes so that everything goes perfectly on D-day.
How to choose the perfect shoes for your wedding? Dream It Yourself gives you tips and advice on choose your wedding shoes.
-GOLDEN RULES : COMFORT-
Don’t forget that on D-day, you will be standing, you will trample, walk, dance and you will have little opportunity to sit, comfort is therefore essential. Feeling sore on your wedding day could ruin this amazing day. So, take the time to try some, walk with them and choose a pair that best fits your daily habits. If you don’t wear a lot of heels, play it safe and choose heels that aren’t as high to wear them comfortably, all day. We suggest a pair of sandals with square heels, pumps that don’t go beyond 7 cm, or wedges to have good stability on D-day, without pain.
Small trick: It’s very important to try on your pair of shoes at the end of the day. Your feet will be wider and swollen than at the start of the day. A tip to avoid a bad surprise on D-day.
-DARE SOME COLOR-
Do you have a theme? an atmosphere? a dominant color on your wedding day? Choosing the color of your shoes based on these, is a beautiful way to integrate it into your outfit. Dare some color, and make your feet shine by contrasting with your wedding dress. Bring a touch of originality and color to your outfit to liven everything up. And know that right now the big trend is color. So, you can allow yourself to do it. The effect will be even more consistent and harmonious if you match your shoes with your accessories (head accessories, bouquet, stole, jewelry, groom’s bow tie). With a wedding, everything is in the details!
-CHOOSING YOUR PAIR ACCORDING TO THE PLACE AND SEASON-
Then, to choose the good pair of shoes, it is important to remember your wedding venue and the season. You will not make the same choice for a rural wedding or in a room and in December rather than in January. So, make sure you keep your eyes peeled.. When buying your shoes, don’t forget this point. In summer, we propose sandals, wedges, pumps or ballerinas will be perfect and in winter you can dare to wear a beautiful pair of boots.
-CHOOSE SHOES THAT SUIT YOU-
Finally, last tip to choose your bridal shoes and it’s very important, it’s to feel like yourself on D-day. The goal is not to look like magazine supermodels but to fully assume and feel like yourself. To feel good and beautiful. This tip applies also and especially for the choice of shoes. Nothing requires you to wear high heels. You must wear something that suits your style and your habits. Nowadays, we have the opportunity to get out of traditional weddings, to free ourselves and dare a lot for the best day of our life. If you dream of getting married in Converse sneakers, then go for it!
Last “small” tips to guarantee a hit on d-day and to be as comfortable as possible :
- Think about plan B: After a whole day you may have sore feet. So, think of bringing a small pair of flats or sneakers to be sure to finish the day in style and to dance until the end of the night.
- Don’t make the mistake of only putting your shoes on D-Day and leaving them in their box. A few weeks before D-day, wear them, walk with them to get used to them and to avoid blisters. You have to ‘’break them in’’ before the big day.
- Invest in comfortable soles to put on D-Day in case of soreness.
- Remember to buy your shoes during sales to save money on other wedding budgets.
