4 Bridal Shoe mistakes to avoid


Every bride-to-be should look and feel good from head-to-toe on her wedding day. The main highlight is your wedding gown, but you need to match it with the perfect shoes that will carry you through the aisle and party, through your wedding day to the last goodbyes of the night. It’s one of the most overlooked factors in wedding preparations; however, your bridal shoes can easily make or break your big day. Fortunately, we are here to guide you step by step and help you slip into the right pair!

Mistake #1: Picking an uncomfortable fit in the name of fashion

There’s going to be an incredible number of things going on during your special day. It will be anything but a walk in the park. Since you’ll most likely be up on your feet, it’s best to pick bridal shoes that are comfortable enough to give you the confidence you need. Picking the wrong pair in the name of fashion can backfire sooner than you think, and you may end up hobbling down the aisle if you choose the wrong fit. If you know your shoes will be seen and you want to show off some heels, be sure to find a height that you can handle for extended periods.

Mistake #2: Forgetting to break into your new pair of shoes

You may think it’s best to reserve your shoes for the big day. However, a bit of wear and tear is important for them to hug your soles comfortably. You don’t have to break them down in the streets; using it around your house or even office for a short amount of time is a safe and practical way to make it comfortable as an old pair without compromising its quality.

Mistake #3: Buying a pair you’ll never wear again

Wedding gowns are often once-in-a-lifetime wear for many women, but it isn’t the same case when it comes to your bridal shoes. There are plenty of chic designs that will perfectly match your wedding gown and are versatile enough to slip on again in other formal events like another wedding, a cocktail party, or an elegant black-and-white event. Don’t limit yourself to a one night stand with your shoes and be sure to pick something that is universally sophisticated.

Mistake #4: Choosing a pair that doesn’t match your wedding gown

Many women may think they can hide their shoes under the length of their wedding gown, but wearing a pair that doesn’t fit the style of your dress can also make or break your overall look. Not to mention, you may waste your energy trying to avoid lifting your gown. However, occasional slip-ups are inevitable, so make sure to wear something cohesive yet comfortable.
