Bridal shoes: high heels or comfy flats?

Tips for choosing your bridal shoes that best suit you

Your wedding day is the most important one in your life and you want everything to be perfect. Choosing the dress you will wear may not seem easy but it can actually be fun and selecting the right pair of shoes to go with it is very important. First you need to decide whether you want to wear high heels or a pair of comfy flats.

Here are some tips on the subject from Wed in Florence:

Color and fabric – Everything begins with your wedding gown! Your bridal shoes should match or suit the color of your lace wedding dress. If you have your shoes tailor-made/customized, the color and fabric can be a perfect match.  For traditional dresses choose silk or satin; if you have opted for a less traditional form of gown, then you can play around with other options.  Remember that shoes reflect your personality, so find a pair that suits YOU!


High heels or flats? Choose comfort! You will be spending about 10-15% of your budget on shoes so get a pair that feels comfortable! Avoid high heels if you are not used to them. If you have the time,  then wear them around the house or practice walking down your hallway like a top model! This can be a fun and useful way to keep your feet from hurting on your big day!


Consider the kind of entertainment you want and the location of your wedding. Do you want to dance the night away? Then flats are your best option. You could, however, choose high heels for the ceremony and also have a pair of flats on hand for later. As for the location – both heels and flats work for villas or country settings, while flats or sandals make the best choice for beach weddings. Even though you will probably be buying your shoes at least a couple of months in advance, don’t forget to consider the season of your celebration. You might even want to opt for boots in the winter!
