Will you be walking down the aisle or standing at the alter with the love of your life soon?
Are you excited for your big day that’s fast approaching?!
Firstly, congratulations on your engagement. Secondly, to walk down that aisle you’re going to need some beautiful yet comfortable wedding shoes – you want to avoid the risk of tripping or stumbling when all eyes are on you. But have no fear, ALDO Shoes UK are here to help as we have the perfect pair for the bride, groom and even your wedding guests.
What are the best shoes to wear for your wedding?
The best shoes to wear for your wedding depend on your personal style and the type of wedding you're having. For a formal wedding, traditional heels in a neutral colour like white, beige, or silver are a popular choice. If you're having a beach or outdoor wedding, consider wearing wedge sandals or flats that won't sink into the sand or grass. If you're not a fan of heels, opt for dressy flats or embellished sandals for a comfortable yet stylish look.
To break it down a little more, here’s 5 things to keep in mind when picking out the best shoes for your wedding:
Comfort: You'll be on your feet for a good portion of the day, so comfort is key. All of ALDO shoes are made with cushioned soles with Pillow Walk technology – giving you ultimate comfort without compromising on style. Plus, with each bridal shoe having a different heel height, you can pick an option that you're used to wearing.
Style: ALDO wedding shoes come in a variety of styles, from elegant court heels to strappy sandals to chunky block heels. Or, for the men, stylish loafers and classic formals. Consider the style of your dress and the overall vibe of your wedding when selecting your shoes.
Material: Leather, satin, and lace are popular choices for wedding shoes. If you're getting married outside or in a location with uneven terrain, consider a shoe with a non-slip sole and low heel. The Grandly or Lulu may be the perfect option for you in this scenario. Whatever material you decide to go for, ensure you have room in your dress shoes to allow for natural foot movement as you’ll be on your feet a lot during your big day.
Colour: You may have had the thought of “What colour wedding shoes should I wear?” and while white or ivory are classic bridal shoe colours, don't be afraid to go for something bold and colourful if it matches your wedding theme or personal style. At ALDO Shoes UK, we have ‘something blue’ in the Anjie platform or the people’s favourite court heel, Stessy2.0. Or a touch of glitz with the Barrona crystal bow strappy sandal.
Timing: So, do you buy wedding shoes before your dress? There’s no hard rule on which way is right, but it is recommended to buy your dress first as you’ll get a better sense of your overall finished look on the day. Whatever you decide is best for you, be sure to purchase your shoes in plenty of time before your wedding day to allow for any necessary alterations and practice walks. But don’t worry about ‘breaking them in’ as the Pillow Walk technology has done the hard work for you – there will be no blisters during this first dance!
Pillow Walk is ALDO’s technology to ensure every step you take is cushioned and comfortable, which will also mean you won’t feel the need to change your shoes after your ceremony as we know a lot of brides-to-be ask whether they should take a second pair!
Remember, your wedding day is about celebrating your love and commitment to your partner. Don't let your shoes be a source of stress – find a pair that makes you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful and have the very best time!
