How to pick the perfect bridal shoes

On your Big Day, your shoes make an impression that lasts long after the wedding has ended. If you pick the wrong pair, you might regret it forever. That's why we've put together this guide on how to pick the best bridal shoes for your special day.

Prioritize comfort

The first thing you should do is make sure you get a pair of bridal shoes that are comfortable. You don't want them to pinch or rub against any part of your foot, so be sure to try them on before you buy them. They should also have a little bit of padding so they don't hurt your feet when you wear them all day long.

Tip: You’ll most probably take your shoes off a couple of times during your wedding. Unless you want to carry your shoes around all day, choose a shoe that's easy to slip on and off!

Know your venue

You might not think that this is relevant, but it really is! For example, if you're getting married in a house of worship, make sure your shoe doesn't make noise as you walk. Are you having an outdoor wedding? If your ceremony is on grass, choose shoes with a thicker, more durable heel.

Match the dress, but don't be afraid to go bold.

The next thing to consider is style. You want something that works with both your dress and the overall aesthetic of your wedding day—and if possible, something that pops with color! The inspiration for our Siena bridal shoes was “Something new, something borrowed, something blue”, which is how we came up with these gorgeous pastel blue stilettos. Whether you choose a bright-colored shoe or a delicate pearl tone, let it add some fun to an otherwise formal affair.

Practice your walk

We always talk about breaking shoes in before wearing them, but it’s even more important in this case. Wearing your wedding shoes regularly before the ceremony is essential to make them as comfortable as possible, and to practice walking in them. It’s also fun to rehearse walking down the aisle!
