Best Designer Wedding Shoes of 2013
I enjoyed helping a bride out who contacted me asking for wedding shoe advice so I was inspired to create a list of my favorite brands & styles. I’m now also a fiancée and even though my wedding isn’t for awhile, I love looking at potential shoes!
- Follow the fit guide & order early. Unfortunately not every web site has a size guide and each brand’s sizing can run a little different. My suggestion is to order early (especially if it’s a coveted style) so you have time to return or exchange.
- Wear them several times before the big day. No one wants to walk down the aisle or dance the night away in pain! I would wear them around the house (at least) 5 or 6 times. Personally, I want a platform because they’re the easiest on my feet without sacrificing the height!
- Consider choosing an fun color or print. White shoes are obviously the traditional choice and even trendy right now for everyday wear but you could have fun with it. Designer Charlotte Dellal of Charlotte Olympia wore leopard print pumps to her wedding.
