Ottawa Wedding Magazine reveals how to put your best foot forward and feel confident in your beautiful wedding shoes.
Pick the right heel height
Choose a heel height you’re comfortable with. If you normally wear kitten heels, stay with this height. A sudden desire to start experimenting with new heel heights on such a high-pressured day could end in disaster.
And for the stiletto-loving brides, remember you might need to compromise – your new husband will be embarrassed if you are towering over him in your wedding photos!
Comfort is key
Expect to be on your feet a lot on your wedding day, from walking down the aisle, posing for photographs and your first dance. Above all, wedding shoes must be functional – ask yourself if you can walk in your shoes? Will your shoes be comfy all day? To make sure your feet are used to the shoes, wear them around the house to see if they’ll work on the day.
Choose shoes you love
A need for feet to be ultra comfortable all day doesn’t mean jeopardizing your style. Choose wedding shoes you’ll love and treasure for years to come, and if you pick the right shoe, they can be worn again and again. Don’t fret over following fashion trends; if you pick a classic style, they will stand the test of time in the wedding photo album for years to come.
Think about your venue
Pick shoes suitable for your wedding venue. For example, wedges and flats are best for garden weddings to save yourself from muddy heels. Flat sandals are best for beach weddings and certain (usually historic) venues forbid high-heeled shoes for fear of damaged floors. There are a wide range of bridal shoes available to suit different wedding environments. For example, a winter wedding can be complemented by white, glamorous snow boots.
Treat your feet
Remember to schedule a lovely pedicure before your big day. Slip your feet into your gorgeous wedding shoes with soft skin, neat cuticles and glossy painted nails. Pedicures instantly make you feel relaxed, refreshed and special. W
