Weddings involve a tremendous amount of planning. It may take months to find the dress you want to wear down the aisle. You have to decide whether you want the bridesmaids to wear dresses you find ready made, or dresses you have sewn specially to fit them. Colors and styles are difficult to choose, too. Then, there are details like the kind of cake you want and who you will trust to bake and decorate it. Along with all these decisions is the choice of wedding shoes.
You will be busy the whole day of your wedding. There is no reason to make yourself uncomfortable unless you are certain you want to wear dressy shoes. Women’s dress shoes can be beautiful, certainly. If you are wearing a wedding dress that is not full length, you will probably want to wear elegant high heeled shoes in a white or candlelight color, or any shade that matches your dress. You will want to look your best, but keeping the heels in the lower height range of high heeled shoes is a good idea. You will be walking too much to be comfortable in stiletto heels. With a lower heel, you can look graceful and be comfortable at the same time.
If you are wearing a full length dress, you have the opportunity to take comfort to the next level. No one will likely notice your shoes under a long dress, especially if it has a train. Your feet will be securely hidden from view. Many brides take advantage of this fact by wearing alternative wedding shoes that may seem unusual if you have not been around brides lately.
Ballet shoes can be worn as bridal shoes. Ballet shoes are some of the most comfortable wedding shoes, yet they look dainty if your feet ever do show. Brides can wear ballet shoes and never fear getting a blister or twisted ankle from wearing tight or high heeled shoes. Ballet shoes often come in white and pink, but other colors are sometimes available.
Comfort can be very important to brides. Many brides now wear simple white tennis shoes as wedding shoes for the comfort they provide. Tennis shoes could even be seen as appropriate, considering all the running a bride will have to do to coordinate every little detail on her wedding day. Some brides even wear house slippers as wedding shoes. Whether standing at the altar or gliding across the dance floor, there is no reason a bride should be in misery because of her shoes.
Alternative shoes are also advantageous because they are not expensive. Weddings can cost a small fortune, but that does not mean your shoes have to be costly as well. If you want to buy cheap shoes for your wedding, you are much better off buying comfortable footwear at a low price than cheap knock-offs of expensive brand name wedding shoes. These cheap imitations do not look as good as the wedding shoes they imitate. They do not hold up as well, and may even come apart on the day of the wedding. That is the last thing a bride needs to worry about. Besides that, the cheaper the dress shoe, the more uncomfortable it usually is. It is much better in every way to find the most comfortable bridal shoes that are appropriate to go with your wedding dress.
