Now that we are offically in 2021 this is the year I am getting married, eek! And that means everything wedding planning is kicking it into high gear. You would think this would have been one of the first items I’ve crossed off my list and you would be half right. It was one of the first purchased I tried to make but it has been proving much more difficult than I would’ve thought because of three considerations: color, heel, and material. Let me explain.
For the color do you I want white? What if it’s not the same white as the dress? Or blush? Or navy for my something blue? I still don’t know. Then the heel – of course I want to wear a heel on my big day but I also don’t want my feet to be killing me at the reception. This I am debating how high I want the heel to be and two heights is not an option as my dress will be hemmed to the shoes. I also need to factor in that I’m getting married outside and there will be grass. It would be terrible to get a heel caught in the dirt walking down the isle, no? Thus I’m also looking at wedge options in addition to stilettos.
Lastly; the material. After trying on more than 20 dresses I can tell you the fabric is often quite fine. This is a consideration point because many bridal shoes have beaded or jeweled embellishments which I’m scared could get caught on the dress or pull the fabric. With all of these consideration points in mind, here are some of the wedding shoes I am considering.
As you can see I have gone for a wide variety of options above – all of the things I find pretty from pointy-toe pump covered in sequins and crystals to leather closed toed stilettos with lace. And there are even more I did not Include like these Badgley Mischka Ever After Embellished Sandal or these Bella Bella Evelyn Pointed Toe Pump – I could go on and on, but I really need to get to ordering. As mentioned above, I need to decide this well in advance of May 8th because of my dress fitting. I need to have the shoes at the end of February to bring with me to my first dress fitting March 3rd. I am trying to remain super positive that even that can still happen given the impending third London lockdown but here’s to #positivethinking.
Do you have any ideas for my wedding shoes?
