There are many traditions to follow when holding your wedding and one of them is having the wedding shoes match the wedding theme as best as possible. While in some ways this makes it easier to choose the right pair of brides wedding shoes for the occasion, it also means having to dig a bit more to get those perfect coloured wedding shoes.
The wedding theme should be something that the bride really wants to do and is planned many months in advance to allow for everything to fall in place. This not only means that setting and outfits for the wedding party, but the guests as well so they can fit into the theme if need be.
What follows are a few wedding themes and the appropriate wedding shoes to match. Be sure to colour coordinate the shoes with the dress so that it matches the occasion perfectly.
Sexy Wedding Theme
Certainly one of the most popular themes in recent years, a sexy wedding theme can be shaped around a bride’s favourite party dress with shoes that are appropriate for the occasion. Blue wedding shoes can work very well if the dress matches, but they should emphasize comfort even if they are high-heeled. A bride is going to be on her feet all day and uncomfortable shoes will take their toll.
Western Wedding Theme
Western themes are actually quite popular and can be helpful for those who are stuck on a budget. The western theme is relatively inexpensive, relaxed and can be helpful for your guests as well since they don’t have to purchase or clean expensive suits. The appropriate choice in brides wedding shoes is ivory or white, beige, grey or pearl. Adding embroideries can help augment the western theme as well.
Spring Wedding Theme
A very popular choice, especially if it matches the season. Spring generally means plenty of bright pastels which mean you will need to choose the appropriate colour of dress to match this theme. Strong greens, yellows and reds are preferred, but you can choose from the many colours of nature itself during this time of year.
Coloured Wedding Shoes
Another highly popular theme, here the wedding shoes should be only one colour, red. And although the dresses tend to be very long and cover the shoes, remember that you probably will be going up and down stairs and what better than to show a flash of red wedding shoes.
One Trick to matching Shoes to the Dress
You may run into the problem of not quite having the same colour shoes as the dresses being worn, this is especially true if the bridesmaid dresses are specifically made for the occasion. One simple trick is to purchase patent leather shoes and use a strip of fabric to create a ribbon that can be attached. This will allow some flexibility in the type of shoes that are worn, especially when you cannot easily find the shoes that you need.
