How to choose Perfect Wedding ShoesShoes
Hello I’m Ellie, and I’m Charlotte, and we run a bridal boutique in south west London called Ellie and Charlotte. We have been making wedding dresses for almost 10 years and we are going to show you some of our top tips on finding your perfect dress and accessorising.
I’m going to talk to you about how to choose your wedding shoes. First of all its best to check with your venue that if they are a heritage flooring, that they don’t require a certain heel height. I know this sounds bazar but some places require a 1,5 centimetres actual heel base to protect the floors. You can buy clip-ons to support the bottom of your shoe. If you do want to wear a thinner heel id they require them.
Also don’t forget to consider the height of your groom. If you can wear high heels, or mid heel, or even just a little heel; we always recommend that you wear some kind of heel. Even if its just a tiny one. Just because it really helps with your posture and the way you stand. The other thing to consider is the stall of your wedding dress. If you are having a slinky wedding dress its best not to wear a peak toe just for the dress getting caught in between your toes. So something as simple as classic as this so the fabric can slide over the toe and as you walk, or if you feel more comfortable with the strap over the ankle, and don’t forget this, no one is going to see this under your wedding dress because its going to be a full length. It will be mainly just about the toes, so think about comfort in your wedding day and how you are going to walk with confidence.
Don’t miss a nice little round toe, they can look very cure on your wedding day. They work very well with three quarters lengths dresses, and just consider the stall of your dress to make sure it looks good. Again this is a nice high heel, you have the support at the back, and you also have the strap at the back to keep the shoe in place. Now if you go for a more structured traditional dress, you have the choice of many shoes. There is nothing wrong with a bit of sparkle in your wedding day but don’t forget to make sure it goes with the style of your dress and the high you are trying to achieve. I know lots of people love to spend loads of money on wedding shoes and they think they are the ultimate thing, but the reality is you are not really going to see them under your dress. There is no point in spending hundreds of pounds on a shoe just for the photographer to take a picture of it. This is a really popular shoe, again it works really well with traditional dresses and it will be lovely with a three quarter length dress. This shoe is not so good with slinky dresses just again because of the toe aspect and also because sometimes the jewellers can catch the fabric.
This is a very popular type of shoe, it’s very pretty, it’s very simple. This one you can get away with the slinky dresses just because there is a smaller peak toe, but again be careful. You will need your shoes to be hand fitting at any good dress makers or any good boutique that make dresses. They should request them because they need the exact length of your dress for your wedding day. You don’t want it to be hovering on the floor and you don’t want it to be draping on the floor so you can’t walk down the aisle with confidence. And of course they have to be comfortable, don’t forget to wear your shoes in around the house while doing the hovering with thick socks on just to wear them for them to be comfortable on your wedding day. And that is how to choose your wedding shoes!
