How To: Find the Perfect Shoe

High-glam stilettos, ultra-shimmery platforms – whatever your bridal style, finish your look with knock-'em-dead shoes.


    High-glam stilettos, ultra-shimmery platforms – whatever your bridal look, step up in style with knock-'em-dead shoes. 

    1. If you want footwear to be a feature of your ensemble, opt for a pair with eye-catching details such as glitzy beading, baubles or bows. 
    2. Dye-able fabrics, such as silk satins or leathers, mean pearly whites can enjoy second lease on life. 
    3. Capture the joy of the day by introducing an element of fun to your bridal look - peep-toe heels give guests a glimpse of boldly painted toe nails. 
    4. Make sure your dress is the perfect length by wearing your wedding shoes during the hemming process. 
    5. Consider your venue – historic spots with polished floors may not allow stilettos. Similarly, if you’re saying ‘I do’ on a field or beach, wedges or chunky heels will make for a steadier walk up the aisle.
    6. Break your shoes in by wearing them for a few hours on carpet ahead of the big day.
    7. On the wedding morning, give your shoes a quick wipe down so they look picture-perfect when your photographer zones in for detail shots.
    8. Flat slippers or sandals make way for day-long comfort and dancing aplenty - amp up the glam with embellishments such as sequins or sparkles.
    9. Love heels but worrying about lasting the distance in anything higher than a three-inch? Platforms plus sturdy heels equal the ultimate in comfy chic.
