Shoes are just an accessory but they are one of the most important accessories necessary for your wedding day. Finding the perfect shoes is a huge task but is one that is more easily accomplished with a few easy tips. These tips will help you choose the best shoes for your special day.

Decide on the heel height that you want. You’ll need to know this before you can complete the alterations on your bridal gown. Choose a heel height that works with your dress and with your own height. For example, you don’t want to be taller than your groom, nor do you want to be too much shorter than him.

With a heel height in mind you can start looking for your shoes. Begin by looking at various styles in bridal magazines and online. Don’t choose a type of shoe that you’ve never worn before. For example, platforms are popular today but they can be difficult to walk in and especially difficult for a bride wearing a long, heavy dress.

Consider a simple shoe that is easy to walk in. A simple sandal is a great option for a spring or summer wedding while a pump is a good choice for a cool-weather wedding. Remember that your shoes will not be seen much at all so don’t worry too much about tiny details. These only add more cost to the shoes and don’t give you much else. Try on shoes at the end of the day when your feet are the most swollen from walking.

Choose shoes that are comfortable. Be sure to try on the shoes and walk a bit in them before buying them. If there is any discomfort at all it will multiply when you’re actually wearing them on your wedding day. Don’t let sore feet ruin your wedding. Pick shoes that are easy to wear. The material of the shoes should allow your feet to breathe. Cheap shoes are often made using plastic and this can cause your feet to sweat.

Consider straps that help hold the shoes on. Slip on shoes may seem like a good idea but they are often too difficult to keep on your feet while walking and dancing. After you purchase new shoes be sure to scuff the bottoms on the sidewalk. This helps to give you traction so you won’t slip on a smooth surface.
