Wedding Shoes That Will Make You Do a Double Take
You’ve chosen a 6-tier white cake with raspberry filling. You’ve selected three different rose varieties for your bouquet. You’ve even made a playlist of songs for the band. But the one detail you haven’t decided on yet? The shoes you’ll wear walking down the aisle. Picking the perfect pump, slipper, or sandal for your gown may feel daunting because, after all, the options are virtually endless. However, we’ve narrowed it down to a few nuptial shoe styles that work for every bride—from those who want to stay flat-footed as they say ‘I do’, to the those who need her feet to be comfortable as she dances the night away, to even those who’d like to wear her something blue on her feet. Check out these eleven gorgeous styles, and good luck committing to only one.
