Shoes for a Summer Wedding
Posted on April 10 2021
With Summer just around the corner and the restrictions on weddings due to lift, we're getting cautiously excited about all the gorgeous weddings which will be happening later in the year. It's been a long time coming and we can't wait to share in your planning and (hopefully) be a part of your big day.
So if you're planning a Summer wedding what are the wedding shoes you should go for? Obviously we always advocate the fact that you can wear whatever shoes you fancy, regardless of when or where you're getting married, but there are a few themes which work particularly well for a summer wedding. Here they are with a few of our favourite Summer picks...
1. Go for gold!
Summer weddings lend themselves beautifully to a gold wedding shoe. Whether it's the long summer evenings, the slightly tanned skin or that little hint of holidays gone by, there is something really special about a gold shoe. Gold is also a fantastic neutral colour which goes with everything, so you can absolutely get them out for another wear on your honeymoon and for special occasions to come!
2. Make it strappy
With the warmer weather that Summer (hopefully, if you're in the UK!) brings, it's the perfect time to get those toes out. Obviously here at RS we love a peep toe which are great for any season as they're wonderfully transitional, but Summer is the perfect season to go for a pair of proper strappy sandals? Just don't forget to book that pedicure before the big day!
3. Block out the date
If you're getting married outside, or even have part of the day outside (and chances are high with a Summer wedding, let's face it!), you might want to consider a pair of trusty block heels. Block heels have all the elegance of a classic slim heel, but with a slightly larger base so not only are you less likely to sink into the grass, but they will also give you that little bit of extra stability if you're not usually a heels wearer.
4. Flat out!
Of course for the ultimate in laid back glamour for a Summer wedding why not go for a pair of our stylish wedding flats? With all the style of a classic RS heel, they're every bit as lux as our higher options but with absolutely zero effort required. All you need to do is pop them on and sashay the day away!
