We LOVE shoes!! Sandals, flats, boots, stilettos. Your wedding shoes will be one of the most important pair you ever wear, so it is time to get flashy and show them off.
Brides showcase their personality through their shoes. Are you conservative? Are you country? Are you against uncomfortable, flashy shoes and opt for bare feet with jewelry? The wedding dress is difficult, but what will be peaking out from underneath that beautiful white dress. With so many options how do you choose?
Have no fear, our experts at Historic Mankin Mansion have searched high and low for options to try and aid your search of the flawless shoe. But prepare yourself because these shoes are dangerously beautiful.
Bling: Us girls love our shiny things, so why should that change when it comes to fancy footwear? Bejeweled shoes are a great accent to a wedding dress because they add that perfect punch of color. The fact that they are just beyond gorgeous is a bonus.
Colors: Bright colors are everywhere! Color is always wonderful and can generate quite a presence. We adore the way a bold color stands out from a white wedding gown. Also, it is very easy to pair your wedding color palette with your shoes.
Boots: A big trend is outdoors wedding and if you have ever attempted to walk through grass wearing heels, you know it is quite a challenge. Just because you are in a fancy, white dress does not mean you can’t breakaway from tradition and express your personality with bold boots. Plus, you won’t have to worry about falling down in your stunning white gown.
Sandals: A great way to celebrate a fun beach wedding, is to wear sandals. Sandals can be very simple or extremely decorated and wild. A good advantage of sandal is the comfort level associated with them. After standing for a while taking pictures, greeting guest, it’s nice to be comfortable in your fancy shoes.
Jewelry: Who says you have to wear shoes at all? Sparkling jewelry made for your feet can make a great impression. This would be perfect for a beach or garden wedding. This option is not common and is a good way to make you standout from other brides.
With all those glorious shoes floating around out there, we know that it is difficult to choose just one pair. But we have no doubt that whichever style you decide to go with, you will be glowing on your special day!
See You Soon,
