We’ve quickly come to realize how difficult it truly is to find the perfect pair of wedding shoes. We used to come across so many distraught brides that were unable to find a pair of silver or white shoes in the middle of fall or winter, let alone ones that were comfortable enough to wear for more than an hour.
This got us thinking: why should women conform to cookie cutter style shoes for their Big Day? Better yet, who said white wedding shoes are the only option?
Out With The Old…In With The Blue!
We have been to a fair share of weddings over the past year and we’re starting to notice a trend: more and more brides are ditching the traditional white wedding shoes in favor of something with a bit more personality.
And why shouldn’t your soles make a statement? After all, no pair of shoes will ever be as important as your wedding shoes. These are the shoes that will carry you through the first day of the rest of your life with the person you love.
One of the biggest trends we’ve seen emerge – tip of the hat to Carrie Bradshaw for spawning it – is brides wearing blue wedding shoes for the “something blue” tradition. Not only is it fun, but it’s a wonderfully unique way to show off your style and personality.
Collections We Love: The Bow Tied Wedge (above left) absolutely screams classic vintage wedding. Featuring SATC blue silk, a pretty big bow, and an open toe for the perfect combination of style and comfort, these bold beauties will add the perfect pop of color to an elegant floor-length lace dress.
Have a spring or summer beach wedding? The casual yet classy look of the strappy Antigua (above middle) is a chic complement to a flowy Grecian-style gown or even a fun and flirty short white dress.
If you have a dramatic ball gown or a mermaid style dress, Tie The Knot (above right) in Robin’s Egg Blue silk with a two-inch skinny heel offers a traditional yet colorful touch to otherwise neutral wedding attire.
Always dreamed of looking and feeling just like a princess on your wedding? Then Here Comes the Bride is a must-have for the day you so ‘I Do’.The Perfect Something Blue silk wedding shoes are just the right shade for a hint of color peeking out from under your dress without being overpowering, and the bow on the back is a subtle but elegant detail, the kind that makes your special day all the more special.
