Shoes for thought

For some brides, a great pair of shoes can be the most important accessory of the wedding day. For others, fabulous footwear is the final touch that pulls the whole look together. But for everyone, tired tootsies are a concern, and thoughts of standing for hours on end through the wedding and reception can quickly turn a bride’s focus toward finding a style that will afford both comfort and fashion.

Savvy brides suggest purchasing two pairs – one more formal for the ceremony, pictures and the newlyweds' grand entrance, and a more forgiving pair to discreetly slip into for the remainder of the reception.

When searching for the perfect shoe, be sure to consider the style of your gown and your wedding as a whole. Whether you’re considering sandals, pumps, slippers or straps, they always need to be brought to your dress fittings.
