Perfect bridal shoes are difficult to find as you need to find the design of your liking and at the same time get them in your size as well. However, with so many designer brands it is possible to find them; you just need to start your search earlier. It is a fact that all brides-to-be are not aware of all the brands and current trends in bridal fashion. In fact, there was a time when brides just got their attire from the local store next to their home.
But things are so different today. With the television and Internet becoming a part of life for all, world famous brands and designers have ceased to be the monopoly of celebrities and models. Common people have also developed a sense of fashion and are aware of the different brands available. The ubiquitous presence of shopping malls has also helped in increasing this awareness considerably. Today it is not a surprise that a bride in the remote town in the UK also wears the same brand of bridal shoes as that worn by Princess Kate.
Bridal shoes are available in different types and designs today. They come in different shades of white and are available in various sizes. There are wide fit and narrow fit shoes as well as low-heeled and high-heeled ones. There are simple and elegant bridal shoes as well as more ornamental ones with stones, laces and bows. In fact, there are stores that provide bridal shoes that are customised to accurately match the wedding gown.
It is normal to fall for the beautiful designs and patterns on the shoes and purchase them without checking them out in detail. Yet you need to check out a few other factors as well before purchasing and they are:
Quality is the most important factor in the case of shoes. You need to ensure that they made with strong materials and that their straps and heels are sturdy enough to hold your feet. You don’t want any malfunctioning of shoes on the wedding day. They have to be durable so that you could use them after wedding too. Many stores offer to dye and modify the bridal shoes so that you can wear them later for special functions.
Size is another crucial factor. You need the perfect size for your bridal shoes. If the shoes are too tight they can hurt your feet and if they are too loose they might fall off from your feet any time, even when you walk down the aisle. You might think that as it is just for a day you could compromise just so that the shoes match your gown and the rest of the accessories. But this could be a big mistake as it can make you very uncomfortable and you don’t want that on your wedding day when you are supposed to dance with your partner first time as husband and wife.
Design and colour
This is the next important factor in the case of bridal shoes. With so many highly creative and skilled designers around, finding a mind-blowing design is not at all difficult. Most of the reputed designers have their own website and you could easily choose the shoes of your preference and most often order them too if you are sure of your size. Similarly, you have ample choices in colour as well. It is, in fact, a misconception that bridal shoes have to be white. There are various other shades like ivory, silver, off white, cream, light pink, light yellow, etc.
