It’s your wedding and you want to go for shoe shopping. A lifetime experience which everyone will remember. But most of the people reading this have no clue which shoes to buy out of all the available options in the market.
In this article, I’ll share with you the pro tips for wedding shoes shopping. So, without wasting any further time, let’s dive right into the article!
Let’s have a quick look at some of the best tips you’d get before you finally make your purchase decision.
1) Buy Early Always
Being an early adopter would always help. Same goes with wedding shoes shopping.
Don’t wait for the last moment, instead start creating a Pinterest board of the shoe styles you like.
If you’re planning to buy it online, I’d recommend you to make your purchase as soon as possible because chances are you might run out of the available sizes.
When you buy it early, you can even try it in your wedding suit. If anything goes wrong, you still have the time to sort things out.
2) Should be Comfortable
Comfort is key while choosing wedding shoes.
Let me tell you why:
You’ll wear the same pair of shoes for the entire day and if it’s not comfortable, it will mess up your day.
For girls, figure out which one works the best for you. Is it high heels, sandals or sneakers.
Try and keep it simple. Don’t try anything new because then all eyeballs will be on you.
One thing which I’d suggest is buying a pair of shoes that have genuine material like leather or any other natural materials. This will help you feel comfortable while walking.
3) It Should Make You Feel Special
It’s your wedding and you need to look special.
You’d want to feel like a princess on your wedding day. So for that, choose a pair of shoes which makes you look amazing.
Everyone visiting should be glaring at your shoes. Although, your dress is floor length the shoes should still stand out from the crowd.
4) Wear it Repetitively
After you purchase the shoes, don’t keep it in your wardrobe and take it out on the wedding day. Instead, wear it occasionally.
Wear the shoes in your home for 1-2 hrs and walk with them. Also, notice if you feel comfortable or not. If not, it’s time to return the existing pairs and buy a new one.
If you want to test the comfort level, the weirdest thing that you can do is dance with the shoes.
Lastly, also check it how it looks on your wedding outfit because that’s what matters the most.
5) One Time Wear vs. Re-Wear Shoes
This can be a critical decision. While buying wedding shoes, you need to decide whether you want to wear this pair of shoes after the wedding or it’s a one-time special occasion shoe.
If you’re planning to wear them after your wedding, it’s necessary to buy the ones that are super comfy and easy to wear. However, if the opposite is true, you can still compromise on the comfort and buy the ones that are more sturdy and beautiful in terms of looks.
6) Buy Your Wedding Dress First
If you want to buy perfect wedding shoes, you first need to buy your wedding dress. Because, at last, your shoes need to compliment your dress, right?
If you purchase the wedding shoes before you purchase the dress, chances are you might end up getting a weird combination.
The length of your dress will decide the type of shoes you’ll buy to make them visible so it is very crucial to shop for wedding dress first before you shop for shoes.
7) Keep Budget in Mind
I know I know it’s your wedding which is never going to repeat so why should you even look at the budget?
Well, if you plan to wear the shoes only in the wedding spending a lot of money wouldn’t make any sense. So make sure you keep your expenses intact or you might end up spending more.
8) Venue Considerations
Lastly, before you buy the pair of shoes for your wedding, consider the venue for your wedding. Is it happening in a garden, barn, church or ballroom?
Depending on the following factors, select your wedding shoe.
