Wedding planning is hard. Like really hard and really stressful as well. There’s a million decisions to be made, all of them difficult since most of us have no experience with organizing a wedding.
So, in the mist of my wedding planning, I decided to concentrate on something I have experience with, and that is shoes! 🙂
I did wonder if I want a pair of designer or non designer shoes for our special day. In the end I think I’ll go with designer because I want to keep them as a memory, so I want shoes that last me (close to) forever. My top tips for choosing the perfect wedding shoes are:
- choose a heel height that is comfortable to you. For me it’s probably going to be 85mm
- choose something with straps that can secure your foot in. My train of thoughts with this is that I’m going to run around the whole day/night and my feet are probably going to be sweaty (ew?), so I need as much support as possible.
- don’t choose pure white. White shoes many times scream “bridal” so you’re probably not going to find as many occasions to wear them. I plan to go for nude, silver/gold or bold (pink or blue) shoes, that I can wear time and time again.
So now that you know my criteria, here are some of the contenders:
Jimmy Choo -Ivette Sandals
These are just gorgeous, and they fit my requirement to have a million straps for my feet to be secured in. I am in love with these!
Manolo Blahnik – Hangisi Jewel Pump
Price: € 970, get them here
If you watched and loved SATC, then you know why these iconic shoes are on my list. I also love this color and it could double as my “something blue”.
Valentino Rockstud leather pumps
I love how the Rockstuds have become such a classic shoe! I think it could be a perfect option as a wedding shoe and they are supposed to be super comfortable! Definitely a high contender on my list!
Stuart Weitzman – Nudistsong patent leather sandals
Price € 425, get them here
I adore how simple these sandals are! I also love the dainty ankle strap and the price :). My only concern with these (for the wedding day) is that my toes will slip with constant walking/dancing/moving around.
Dolce and Gabbana – Keira embellished satin sandals
