Shoes that shine

I have long advocated choosing wedding shoes that you will love and wear forever. ‘Bridal shoes’ are not something that will ever grace these pages I’m afraid. However, if you want something a little different and something that will shine and catch the light when you lift your dress up then you have come to the right place.

I am currently in shoe heaven and my wish list has outgrown any reasonable desire for a closet full of shoes.

If you are a fan of the traditional wedding shoe then one of the best websites I came across is Girls of Elegance.

Colourful Wedding Shoes

Anyone who has read this blog before will know that I am the absolute advocator of having a pair of wedding shoes that you will love and treasure forever, regardless of their style or colour. So today’s post is about embracing  colourful wedding shoes.

They may not be to every Bride’s taste but I do think that colourful shoes are worth exploring. They provide brilliant photograph opportunities and will sit in your wardrobe knowing that when they are brought out again for that special party they will make you smile; now surely that’s every shoe’s wish? It would almost be rude not to….

Beige doesn’t have to be quite so beige; shoes

I know that for many Brides getting the shoes right is a big thing. It certainly was for me, in fact, it was the first thing that I bought! It was love at first sight when a shiney pair of blue Pradas caught my eye and I still love  the glee with which they are pulled out of my wardrobe today.

Today I wanted to focus on more neutral colours without being too boring. After all, they’re still meant to be special right?

Oh and did I mention that Natalie Vodianova’s footwear is a cool £31/AED 170 and all proceeds go to The Naked Heart Foundation…I think it would be rude not to.
