Glass Slippers

  Glass Slippers

For your dream wedding, comfortable shoes are a must.
            Christian Louboutin says, “Shoes are just a pedestal. What interest me is the power of the woman who wears them.  And this could never be more true than on wedding day. Shoes are one of the most important elements of wedding day.
            Actually you should pick your shoes before you start your dress fitting.  Your seamstress will mark the proper length so bring the shoes you are going to wear to your fitting. Decide do you want heels or flats, for both can be stylish, but one will definitely be more comfortable.  
            If you are used to wearing heels, go ahead and wear them on wedding day. But if heels are not your common “go to” item in your closet then the most swoon-worthy pair of shoes can not put a smile on your face if your feet are “killing” you. If you are using an outdoor venue, then think about the walk…especially if the ground is wet. Wedges seem to be a popular choice for outdoor weddings.  You might think about flats or even ballet style slippers for the ultimate comfort shoe.  
            If you do decide to go with the six-inch heels, wear them prior to the wedding so you can get used to walking in them. Break them in by gently wearing them especially when you have your portrait.  Bottom line, wear a pair of shoes that are easy to walk in and do not hurt your feet. Remember too, you have a night of dancing ahead of you too!
            Think about the color of your shoes, but don’t limit yourself to just white. Perhaps the shoes are your “something blue”.  You might want a bit of color and any shoe color can be worn. And of course a popular trend is to wear western boots under a beautiful wedding gown.  An easy choice if you are used to wearing boots for they are always comfortable.
            Even with the most comfortable shoes, bring a second pair that you can change into and let your feet rest. Enjoy every minute with your prince charming and glass slippers on wedding day. 

Tradtionally, the higher the hem, the lower the heel....these bridesmaids here have it perfect.
