Finding the Perfect Shoes for the Bride

Whether you’re a self-professed shoe lover or someone who values comfort over style, selecting your wedding shoes for your big day takes a lot of thought and can send any bride into a spiral of worry. To help you out, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have pulled together a list of things to consider before you head to the shops to find those perfect shoes…

1. Venue Flooring

Is your chosen venue carpeted or does it have hard-wood flooring? Will there be cobbles outside? Will you be on the beach? Are you planning to have your wedding photos snapped on the garden grass? All of these things have an impact on whether you choose stilettos, block heels, flats or boots.  

2. Comfort

Your wedding day is going to be one of the most memorable days of your life, but don’t forget they tend to be very long days too. Nobody wants to be gaining blisters and kicking off their heels in the middle of their celebrations. Make sure your shoes are comfortable for you and wear them around the house to break them in before your big day. 

3. Height

Although heels look fabulous on our feet, they aren’t the most comfortable shoe style to wear! Be honest with yourself when it comes to your ability to walk in heels and wear something that is going to be most comfortable for you. 

4. Style

Before you head to the shops, it’s always a good idea to have a think about what you would like as your overall look. Would you like a pair that contrasts with your dress, or would you like to match? Think about how you can tie your wedding shoes in with your chosen colour scheme and wedding bouquet too. 

5. No Limits

Remember- you don’t have to buy just one pair! If you find the idea of wearing heels all day daunting, then keep the heels for the ceremony and switch to a comfortable pair of flats for the reception. It’s your wedding day and you can wear as many bridal shoes as you wish – enjoy!
