Wedding shoes should not be an afterthought. In fact, they will play an exceptionally important part in your comfort for the wedding day. Of course, no one would ever want to see a bride smiling quite an unhappy smile on her big day due to the unbearable pain from the wedding shoes. Let's get to know how wedding shoes can make or break one of the most important days of your life.

     Fabric choices can play a major role in appearance; thus, there are numerous types of shoe fabrics being used out there in Europe and America. Fabric shoes in materials such as silk, satin and lace tend to be more delicate and feminine looking, while leather and suede fabrics appear bold and offbeat. Remember to choose a fabric that complements your wedding dress, personal style and overall look.

     If, when choosing wedding shoes, you find a pair with embellishments compatible with the ones on your wedding dress, make sure the details coordinate. What is unique about wedding shoes are exclusivity of design as well as outstanding craftsmanship with details such as velvet ribbon, embroidered organza, crystals or beads, all meant to contribute to a perfect beauty on that very special day of your life.

     There is a huge range and selection of wedding shoes, which can make it difficult to choose the pair that is best for you. The ideal pair of wedding shoes must be comfortable, well-designed and of high quality. While your shoes should be a perfect match to your dress and the setting of your wedding, they should also reflect your personal taste. By keeping all of these factors in mind while shopping, you will find the right pair of wedding shoes for your special day.


  • You are lucky if your groom-to-be is a tall man. You will look elegant on the right heel height of your wedding shoes, but always remember that you will spend a great deal of your big day on your feet, so pick a heel and style that you are most comfortable with.
  • Standing in 2 ½ - 3 inches high heels through hours of different proceedings on your wedding day is no fun. If need to, make sure to go for those with platforms.
  • If you are wearing a short wedding dress, your wedding shoes will of course be a key detail that cannot be overlooked. It is very important in this case that your choice of wedding shoes will have to complement the dress. If by all means you are unable to find shoes with similar embellishments to those of the dress, make sure that all resume the same color scheme.
  • When shopping for wedding (or any) shoes, be sure to shop towards the end of your day. Our feet swell over the course of a day, and you will want to try on shoes when your feet are largest. Also, if you will be wearing hose on your wedding day, remember to wear them when trying on your wedding shoes.
  • After finding the right design and size of your wedding shoes, you will need to break them in a few weeks before hand in order to ensure utmost comfort on your wedding day.
  • It is recommended that you should have your wedding shoes picked out before going to your first fitting so that the hem of your wedding dress can be adjusted to the appropriate length.
