Wedding day is one of the biggest and most happening events in one’s life. It’s no surprise that you want everything to be absolutely perfect and according to plan. Even the most minor inconvenience can cause big problems. Just imagine your dress not fitting perfectly, or your wedding shoes pinching your toes when worn, sounds like a complete disaster, right? This is exactly why everything should be pre-planned and in-line when the big day arrives.

If you’ve ever been a part of wedding shopping sprees, you’ll probably be familiar with how difficult it can be to choose the right wedding shoes. After all, these can either make or break the all day comfort deal. If you don’t want to end up with sore feet after the wedding, then it is important that you choose bridal shoes that are stylish, elegant, and comfortable. In this article, we are going to talk about how to pick and choose the best bridal shoes for yourself.

Tips to choose the best wedding shoes for yourself

1. Always Buy Early

When it comes to buying wedding shoes for yourself, the golden rule to keep in mind is to not wait until the last minute to make the purchase. You might already have a rough idea of the shoes that you’d like to wear, if not, you can create a Pinterest board to collect ideas about what shoe styles would look good with your dress.

Moreover, if you plan to shop online, it’s better that you don’t wait long since shoe sizes run out real quick. Also, with online shopping, there’s always a chance that the shoe size you order does not fit you perfectly, or it doesn’t look as you expected it to, therefore the best practice is to order 2-3 weeks before the wedding day so that you have plenty of time to ask for an exchange if needed.

2. Comfort is Key

Considering how long wedding shoots can be, you’d definitely want to wear shoes that don’t have your back hurting by the end of the day. Therefore, comfort should be one of your top priorities while choosing formal wedding shoes for yourself. 

If you have never worn stiletto heels and don’t like the idea of having to struggle to walk in long heels on your wedding day, then opt for low heels. Whereas, if you are someone who can comfortably walk in a 4-inch stiletto, then you don’t need to worry about the size of the heel, instead your main concern should be to look for shoes that have natural materials like genuine leather that offer breathability and are stretchable.

3. Choose One That Complements Your Style

You’ve probably put in a lot of time and effort to choose the ideal dress for you. Therefore, you must look for comfortable wedding shoes that would match your dress and go with your style. Though style is something that is personal and unique to everyone, there are a few rules that you should keep in mind.

Firstly, look at the elements of your bridal dress, does it have a minimalistic design or is it filled with embellishments? Dresses that are heavily embellished look good for shoes with a minimalistic design. Whereas, minimalist wedding dresses should be paired with embellished shoes.

4. Venue Considerations

Venue is another factor that needs to be considered. Do you plan to have an indoor wedding or an outdoor one? If your wedding is going to be held in a garden or a farmhouse, then flats or low heels would work as the best option since these will help you walk comfortably on the rough terrain. Remember! High heels are not suitable for uneven surfaces so make sure that your shoes will work well with the location.

5. Wear Them In

Once you’ve found the best wedding shoes for yourself, the next step is to break in them. This will allow the material to soften and help the shoe to gradually adjust to your feet’ shape. You can wear the shoes at any clean, indoor place - preferably at your home, for a few hours each day.  This will not only help you get comfortable in the shoes but would also help you truly imagine how you’ll look on your wedding day.
