Fashion Forward Bride: Shoes to Wear
On your big day, your shoes are arguably just as important as the wedding dress. There’s the magic of seeing glimpses of the perfect shoe when the bride is walking to the altar, but also the necessity for the shoes to be comfortable enough to dance all night in them. They also need to be perfectly stylish and complement, rather than clash with, the gown. While traditional brides go for satin ivory Manolos or Louboutins, independent boutiques have a lot to offer for the more edgy and fashionable woman. These iridescent leather pumps with a perspex heel from Miista are the modern version of Cinderella’s glass slipper. What they lose in glass, they make up for in comfort. We can picture the bride dancing in them all night long! These seriously edgy and chic silver heels from Celestine Eleven are for the Jenna Lyons-type, the one who would opt for a white t-shirt tucked into a long elaborate ivory skirt rather than a traditional wedding gown, and who still walks down the aisle in her signature red lip and glasses. How adorable are these sparkle heels from Iris? We could picture them in an outdoorsy free-spirit wedding, where the lighting is in the form of candles and dreamy fairy lights, and the bride wears a flower crown around her head, but still wants to look glamorous. A beach wedding calls for sandals. Can you imagine the logistics of wearing heels on sand? These beaded sandals from Question Air add the perfect boho chic touch to a billowy white gown, and enhance the bronzed tan that is a requirement for a wedding by the sea.
