Wedding Shoes for the Bride and Groom
Sometimes hidden but never overlooked, wedding shoes for the bride are an integral part of creating a cohesive ensemble for your big day! Whether you choose timeless wedding heels, comfortable wedding wedges, or dance floor-ready wedding flats, your bridal shoes offer an opportunity to show off your personal style and have a little fun!
We as wedding planners often get questions about the perfect shoes or the whole outfit including the wedding party. Especially because we often organize Mountain Weddings or Elopements, it is very important what kind of shoes you wear and here a side note for all male beings on this earth ; not only the ladies are affected by these circumstances!
Do wedding shoes have to be white?
Traditionally, brides choose bridal shoes that match their gown (usually a shade of ivory) but there’s no set rule. It’s your wedding, after all! Whether it’s metallic mules, textured neutrals, or even something blue, brides can wear any color for their wedding shoes.
Should my wedding dress cover my shoes?
It is up to you whether you want your wedding dress to cover your shoes, especially since some brides opt for a shorter gown or even a bridal jumpsuit! If you want your gown to cover your shoes, bring the shoes you plan to wear to your tailor so they can alter your gown accordingly.
What can I wear as winter bridal shoes?
For winter weddings, a pair of closed toe bridal shoes offers warmth and comfort.
When choosing your bridal shoes, you’ll want a pair that complements your personality and style along with the aesthetic of your gown! Also consider the location of your wedding—heels may not be the most practical option for outdoor, mountain or beach ceremonies. Or in winter closed shoes are preferable, although we wouldn't want to miss the sight of our winter bride in her Jimmy Choo.
We therefore recommend that you always have hiking boots or running shoes with you and then put on your indoor shoes when taking photos. So there are beautiful pictures with the shoes of your dreams but for the area it is safer and more comfortable to wear flat and non-slip shoes.
