Now that you've found your soulmate, it's time to look for your perfect sole-mate. It’s your wedding day after all, so heels or no heels should completely be your decision because you'll be walking and running here and there and you cannot just do that barefoot.
Therefore, when you are going for your bridal shoe shopping, here are a few things that you should keep in mind:
#1 Heels Vs Flats Firstly ask yourself, am I comfortable walking in heels? Do I need to add extra height to match my groom? Or will I be at more ease in flats? These will give you a clear idea of what you should be looking for. Another important thing to remember is the kind of venue you have for your wedding functions. If you've an outdoor wedding function (beach or farmhouse), you should probably opt for wedges or flats because stilettos might deep dig inside sand/grass.
#2 According To The Length Of The Outfit You're Wearing Ideally, the heel size (inches) should be almost equal to the extra length of lehenga that you would have kept during the final trials and fittings. Also lately, we have seen a lot of brides wearing matchy-matchy heels with the lehenga. While there's no harm going that way, it's best to stick with colours in tones of gold and silver so that you're able to reuse them later and don't get restricted to that particular colour while reusing.
#3 Comfort Over Style There’s a high chance that you'll fall in love with the pair of shoes that look absolutely stunning but might not be comfortable to walk in. Remember, at the end of the day it’s YOU who have to wear those shoes. You will be the one who will have to stand for photographs, walk around here and there, and dance a bit too! So, wobbling around your heels which are way high or uncomforable for you wouldn’t be a good idea at all.
#4 Don’t Go For Shoes That You Know Are Beyond Your Budget There are times when you cannot get over that one pair of shoe which you know you cannot afford it and then nothing really seems good enough. Well, listen to me. Don’t get attached to everything you see. Just switch to the next pair of shoe or if needed to the next shop and keep your budget in mind.
#5 When You Have Got Your Shoes, Practice Wearing Them Again And Again And Yet Again If you were thinking of wearing those shoes for the first time on your wedding day, you have got to be kidding me! Do make sure you get them worn in at least a few weeks from the wedding day. Wear them around the house, apply Vaseline or coconut oil while you are trying them on. Get used to wearing them, walk around the carpets if necessary, so that on the big day, your bridal shoes are already shaped according to your feet and you can even run around in them if necessary! And also, keep a backup of shoes ready!
