Too Cool for Shoes
The go-to shoes you think of when you think wedding are heels. However, it is 2017 and at ThingsIAdore-Bridal we believe a bride should be who she wants and wear what she wants. So that means there is no need to squeeze your toes into uncomfortable high heels if you would rather rock a pair of sneakers.
Hence we’ve done some searching and found the top 5 inspirational shoe-looks for your big day.
Nothing is more classic and comfy than an old pair of Converse. You can never go wrong with white as a bride, making white Converse a perfect option (although if you’re a more daring bride, you could try out the various colours Converse has to offer: pink, red, blue, yellow, or even black).
Furthermore, to add a more bridal look to your not-so-conventional bridal look, you can lace your shoes with ribbons instead of boring shoe-laces.
Nothing is cuter than a couple that dresses alike, right? By ditching the heels, and choosing sneakers, this means your groom can wear matching shoes. If you don’t want to be too matchy-matchy, then have your groom where the opposite colour from you (like yin and yang).
Tip: another way to make your sneakers more ‘bridal’ is to pair them with some frilly socks (like the ones you used to wear as a kid). We say: super cute!
Still want to keep your heels but not sacrifice comfort? Heel sneakers may be the perfect-match for you. Perhaps not as easy to find in-stores as normal sneakers, you will have to get these made. However, that just means you get to design your own shoes(!) picking the colour, material and lace/ribbon that goes on them.
This one may seem a less adventurous option but is still often overlooked. Still providing you with comfort, you still get to wear more conventional bridal shoes. White and lace flats are the perfect, safe option however who says you can’t experiment with brighter colours too?
If no shoe makes the perfect cut, then why not go barefoot? This can be a totally quirky decision to make but we guarantee, a comfortable one. This can work great for outdoor weddings on the beach or grass areas (just watch your steps). If you still want to have some decoration on your feet, you can wear lace or pearl/beaded anklets.
You might’ve heard that shoes can make or break an outfit, this also applies to your wedding dress. So don’t forget that, as important as your wedding dress is, you should not settle for less than perfect shoes and to pick shoes that represent the bride you are. Even if it’s a pair of ribboned Converse.
