If you’ve decided on your dress, now comes the really difficult bit, the quest for the right shoes.  When you are shopping, try on as many pairs of shoes as possible and go with the most comfortable.

Try them on at the end of the day when your feet may be tired or swollen. Make sure you select something you can walk and dance easily in, and will hold your foot in place. You’ll be on your feet most of the day and there’s nothing guaranteed to ruin that serene smile in your photos more than aching feet!

The heel height of your wedding shoes is of utmost importance. Your dress will be fitted to accommodate the height of your bridal shoes, and if you’re not comfortable in really high heels, your wedding may not be the best time to try them out. 

If you want a bit of added height to match your groom, but aren’t used to stilettos, you can consider platform heels, or lower kitten heels. And, of course, flat, satin ballet slippers make beautiful bridal shoes.

Matching the style of your dress

If you’ve chosen a traditional bridal dress, opt for classic shoes with a lowish heel. As your dress is reaching the floor, you won’t see much of the shoes so it’s important that the bits that are visible complement it. If you are buying a couture gown, designers like Johanna Hehir offer a range of shoes, viels & accessories to complete the outfit.

Summer weddings

If you are planning a celebration in the summer months, you will be spoilt for choice. You may even be tempted by glamorous silver or gold evening shoes or jeweled sandals. 

Winter weddings 
A wedding during the winter months, can bring its own problems. You don’t want to wreck your elegant shoes in the snow or rain and sandals are a no-no. Some brides buy two pairs of shoes just in case one gets ruined.
