Many women believe that finding the perfect pair of wedding shoes is just as difficult as finding the perfect dress, but it does not need to be. Look for an elegant shoe style that matches the look of your dress and your own personal tastes. Also stick with shoes that feel comfortable on your feet to avoid unnecessary pain on your big day.
What you wear on your feet on your wedding day really matters! You'll be wearing them for quite a while so Wedding shoes with a high heel are popular with brides the world over. They add elegance and glamour to your outfit, elongating your legs and adding height which is useful if you are marrying a tall man. It is often the brides that don’t usually wear high heels who want to do something special on their wedding day and try out high heel wedding shoes, but this can take some practise and preparation.
These tips will help you to wear your bridal high heels with style:
Limit your heel height
If you aren’t used to wearing high heels, jumping straight into a pair of six inch stilettos is going to have you limping by the end of the ceremony. Be realistic about what you can wear, and remember they will need to be comfortable enough to wear for the whole day.
Take your shoes along to a fitting
Taking the actual shoes you will wear for the wedding is the best way to be sure the length of your wedding dress with work with the bridal high heels you have chosen.
Think what you’ll be walking on
If you are having an outdoor wedding you’re likely to get yourself stuck in the lawn if your wear razor sharp stilettos. Equally, you might create heel marks in a wooden dance floor. Look for wider heels or wedges for a larger surface area as well as added comfort.
Train your feet and legs
Wearing high heels requires a different way of walking and different muscles from wearing flat shoes. When you buy your high heel wedding shoes, try to get another similar pair in the same style that you can wear to the office or on a few nights out. This will help to train your feet and legs to cope with high heels.
Check out your fiance’s height
It could be seen as traditionalist or even sexist, but most brides don’t want to tower over their new husband in their wedding photos. It’s surprising how much height those heels can add, so if there isn’t much difference between you and your fiance, make sure your bridal heels aren’t going to make you taller than him.
Dancing in high heels can feel very different to dancing in flat shoes or bare feet, so if you plan on performing a show stopping first dance with your new husband, make sure you practise it wearing your high heel wedding shoes. As your shoes will increase your height, your hold will be slightly different during the dance so it’s good for your partner to practise with the high heeled version of you too.
How to wear the platform shoe
There is a current trend for stacked platform bridal shoes, and these can give a lot of extra height with a relative degree of comfort. They look fantastic with contemporary styled dresses, and on brides with medium to large builds, but be careful if you are having a delicate vintage gown, or you are a very slim bride as they can look to clunky and out of place.
