Every girl knows that the right pair of shoes can make her whole outfit just perfect. For all of you brides, this is especially true! In years past, virtually every bride wore a pair of conservative, white, closed-toe heels. Today, that is simply not the case! There are no limits to what you can wear on your wedding day. I have done a little research and found several different styles to present to you for a little inspiration.
First, and probably the most popular right now, are cowboy -- ahem -- cowGIRL boots. Especially with the popularity of southern, country, or rustic weddings in a barn like ours, this trend is everywhere. Boots have great qualities to take into account. The right pair of western boots can be super comfortable, they have ankle and arch support, and they can reflect your personality and wedding-feel if you are a boot-loving southerner.
Another option that is both good for your feet and somebody else's is to wear TOMS brand shoes. The company even makes a special line of "bridal" shoes with either lace or sparkly fabric. You can find their whole line here. The best feature of Toms is (in my opinion) the fact that for every pair of shoes they sell, they donate another pair to someone in need around the world! It is a great cause, and the shoes are super comfy.
Like I said at the beginning, brides used to always wear "typical" white shoes...pumps, flats, etc. While it isn't the ONLY type of shoes to wear on your wedding day now, traditions became traditional because they stand the test of time. For all you very classic brides, white shoes could be the perfect way to complete your bridal look. They can be spiced up with bling, peacock feathers, or just about anything else that you can imagine to make them personalized (and maybe a bit more modern) while still retaining that classic elegance.
The old saying goes: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something....BLUE! I have seen so many pictures of brides with blue shoes in every shade and hue all over Pinterest (which is where all of these fabulous footwear images came from). It seems that shoes are a quite popular item to use as a "Something Blue" to complete the adage of things a girl needs to have a complete wedding attire. Like I said, there are blue shoes in whatever shade and style suits your fancy.
My last piece of advice is certainly not least. Darling ladies, your wedding is exactly that...YOUR wedding! If you want to wear a pair of hot pink platform stilettos, while they might not be very comfortable, you should go right ahead and wear them! Whatever makes your heart sing is what you should wear. I personally love red heels. They have been my trademark shoes since I was in high school. So on my wedding day, I will most likely wear something like this:
