Remember the famous fairy tale, Cinderella, which we used to listen from our grand mothers in our childhood, well Cinderella, the most famous princess bride, married her prince wearing sparkling glass slippers.
The history has come across another famous first bride Catherine de Medici who walked down the aisle in high heels and set a fashion trend for wearing heels which are famous today. Wherever you go you will find young and old bride preferring high heeled shoes on their weddings. In Old English, in wedding traditions, brides used to wear ‘something borrowed’ like something blue and a sixpence in her shoe’ by tucking coins into their wedding slippers.
Similarly, Queen Victoria became an inspiration for many brides to wear white gown and white shoes on their weddings. She herself chose a white gown and white shoes for her wedding in 1840, till then blue was in demand. Princess Diana wore low-heeled, pearl-encrusted, ivory silk flats (shoes) for her wedding, so as not to tower over Prince Charles.
There are variety of wedding shoes in the market which symbolise ‘ever after’ romance and style. These shoes include high heels, low heels, sandals, pumps and even bejeweled flip-flops. Brides chose dresses and shoes keeping in mind their own personal taste by limiting themselves to traditional white satin pump, red or gold heels.
Many international designers such as Vera Wang, Jimmy Choo, Stuart Weitzman, Kenneth Cole and Manolo Blahnik have introduced all kinds of wedding shoes from pumps, slingbacks, sandals and ballet flats in bronze, silver, gold and pewter metallic shades and soft pastels, to ivory and white shoes. Heel heights and silhouettes range from flat to stiletto. Toes of these shoes can be open, closed, pointed, rounded or squared.
Nowadays the trend in wedding shoes is to wear strappy sandals and slingbacks. These shoes are so amazing that you feel like wearing them again and again. Those wanting to get married somewhere exquisite and beach like can wear something beyond the colourful flip flops and adorable jelly sandal with crystal accents and kitten heels is a stunning option.
Before you buy wedding shoes always remember that comfort is more important than style. Choose a supportive heel and bring your shoes with you to gown fittings and wear them around the house to break them in a bit and put sandpaper for gentling the rough soles.
