What’s Your Wedding Shoe Style?

I totally agree with Jenna here — purchasing wedding accessories that you can wear years after your wedding — I DO. What a perfect excuse to buy that pair of heels that might be a little above your regular budget for shoes but for your wedding (and beyond) it’s worth it! — Meg

Wedding bells means wedding shoes, jewelry, and accessories (yes, among other things, including but not limited to true love). Your dress is likely “one-and-done” but you can strut in shoes or dazzle in earrings that enhance your bridal bliss and be worn long after the big day.

These details can often be the last ones you think about amidst the bliss of planning but they are a great way to let elements of your personal style shine through at your wedding.

Let’s start with shoes — unless you are someone with a real-life style that supports frequent wear of white satin sling-backs, think about investing in a pair of shoes that do both your wedding day and wardrobe justice. These shoes may run you a pretty penny, but not as pretty as they will look on your feet (wedding and beyond). If any of these styles strike your fancy but a lower cost option is something you seek, use them as examples to guide your shopping.

The aisle is your red carpet, you sparkle, and bling your way through life, and your wedding day should be no different. With footwear like this, after your big day, (whether it’s a special soiree or a denim + diamonds affair) your shoes will still be the talk of the night.

edgy wedding shoes


Git ‘er done. You want to balance the femininity of your wedding dress with the edgier elements of your style. Opt for some fierce details with a pair of sleek or studded beauties. They’ll be enchanting on your wedding day and long after with say, leather pants… (it’s not often “wedding day” and “leather pants” are in harmony in a sentence).

bold wedding shoes


Wallflower you are not — you typically don bold, bright pieces or statement prints. Your shoes are a great way to express yourself tastefully on your wedding day. A person who makes bold wardrobe choices already has ideas for what else she could wear these shoes with post-wedding.
