When in search of wedding shoes, consider the following :

  • You'll be on your feet throughout the day, so pay attention to comfort.
  • Ensure that the height of your heels has been taken into account when designing your wedding gown.
  • Being a prized possession for many, quality and workmanship are criteria to be met.
  • A destination wedding such as one on a beach will require flats whereas a bride celebrating in a city hotel will often wear heels.
  • For your flower girls, choose shoes that are easy to put on and remove.
  • And do remember to break-in your shoes before your wedding day!

A few tips :

  • Whilst it is possible to purchase ready-made accessories, it would be good to consider having them custom-made should your budget permit and should the price points be affordable.
  • Share photos and fabrics of your wedding attire with your accessories designer so that he or she can have a creative viewpoint to work with.
  • Sometimes giving your designer a free hand will result into creative designs that are unique and personal.
