Selecting the right shoes for your wedding may seem as such an insignificant task but in reality it is never easy. There is an entire gamut of styles, sizes, shapes and colors to choose from that finding those perfect sparkly shoes to match your dream attire may feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Fortunately, with a few basic tips you can reduce your workload by working smart to find the ideal wedding heels.
Choose Comfort over Cost
Understandably, everyone is on a budget with the tight economy these days. You may think that shoes are not so important so it is an area you can spend less to keep your budget in check. This is far from the case. While you should not overlook cost, it is important to find shoes that are comfortable. Keep in mind you will wear these shoes from dawn till dusk. You will walk down the aisle in them, pose for photographers, walk around and even dance in them. The lasting thing you want on your wedding day is wobbling around in your sparkly heels or straining your ankles on your special day. Here are tips to find the most comfortable wedding heels:
§ Try them out when shopping around to see if they fit snugly and feel cosy
§ Look for shoes that have extra padding and designed specifically for special occasions
§ Consider getting your shoes dyed if finding the most comfortable pair that matches your
color is proving difficult
§ Buy your shoes a few weeks before the big day and wear them in the house to get them worn in so they will be eased up on the wedding day Select the Right Height
Selecting the right height for your heels is more than just for comfort. A killer pair of wedding heels adds the finishing touches to your flawlessly fitting gown to help you rock your bridal look. But what if those wonderful 6-inch stilettos leave you towering over the groom? Should you channel your inner Gisele and throw all caution to the wind or should you opt for heels that are more down-to-earth? There is no right or wrong answer. It all depends on how you and your husband-to-be are comfortable with the idea. If you cannot imagine yourself matching down the walkway with at least a 4-inch heel, then by all means go for it However, if the matter is up for debate or if you are still undecided, here are some tips that might help:
Consider wearing two-inch heel — it will be just enough to extend your silhouette without towering over the groom.
Go for a smaller heel — This is a great option especially if you are the same height or taller than your partner. You do not have to compromise on style even if you are giving up a little heel. You will look just as fabulous in kitten heels, sweet ballet flats or sandals.
Buy shoe lifts for him — If your partner is open to the idea, you can have him wear shoe lifts to give him a one-or-two-inch boost during that day so that you can wear that to-die for pair of heels. There is nothing wrong with this, and celebs do it all the time
