Hello there 🙂
My sister is getting married this fall and as her maid of honor (and sister of the fashion editor) I was her soundboard for everything to do with bridal clothing. Since we helped her find her dream wedding dress, we have been concerned with where to find her bridesmaid dresses, which shoes to choose on her wedding day, and today I share some insights that were directly inspired by the latter Conversation – namely, that their approach to buying bridal shoes included buying one, not buying one two pairs for the big day.
I hadn't heard about it until my sister mentioned that she had bought her second pair of shoes. Her first was a pair of white Dior J & # 39; Adior pumps, but soon after I asked the experts and some of my fiancee publishers, I found out The second pair of bridal shoes can be very important and you may later regret staying in the same pair from the ceremony to the reception. As someone who is relatively new to the bridal world (this will be the first wedding I attend and not just attend), I was curious to know what constitutes the so-called best bridal shoes and why this decision could have a lasting impact the way you remember your wedding day.
Read in advance what experts and brides have to say on the subject, and read our favorite secondary bridal shoes along the way.
"The concept of changing to a second pair of shoes for the wedding reception is not necessarily new, but is becoming increasingly popular. Depending on the style, it can also be practical to have a second pair of wedding shoes, which is very much appreciated the big day.
"A particular shoe may look fabulous in photos but feels excruciatingly painful the moment you move. If you have two pairs of wedding shoes, brides can use one pair for portraits and the ceremony, followed by a more functional style for the reception when they move I will run and dance the most. "- Sam Iacia, co-editor of WeddingWire
"If you rock a pair of 5-inch stilettos and can still land on the dance floor, that's good for you! But if your wedding shoes are awkward or painful, it's a good idea to choose a more comfortable one if your dress long, you probably won't see it in photos, and you'll be glad you haven't spent the evening worrying about blisters and the like. "- Shelley Brown, chief editor for fashion and beauty, The Knot
"I was definitely planning to wear two pairs of shoes for my wedding. I bought a special, more artful pair for the ceremony (and for all photo ops!) And a simpler, more comfortable, and more affordable pair of strappy sandals to meet in all the excitement I never turned into my second couple, which I regret to have had serious bruises and blisters after a full day and night of being on my feet. I had an amazing nevertheless (and only noticed on The day after my poor feet), but I would definitely recommend wearing another pair for reception if your most important bridal shoes are not that comfortable. "- Judith Jones, Market Editor, Who What Wear
"Flats, sandals, or even plateaus (if you're also looking for extra height) are more comfortable than conventional heels. Look for a pair with a firm back or back straps. (Mules are not in motion here.) This way your shoes will rub or slip not going off during the day. "- Brown
