Selecting Your Wedding Shoes

Little girls are always imagining their wedding day. They fantasize about their future groom, that ever perfect dress and the sparkling diamond tiara. They picture the perfect hair with the perfect veil. They dream of everything. Everything that is, except the shoes.

It is a rare bride who thinks about her wedding shoes before she actually becomes engaged. But once you start assembling that perfect dress and veil ensemble, a bride can become panic stricken in finding the perfect shoe. They must be beautiful and they must be comfortable. These are the shoes you will walk in from single-hood into wedded bliss. And these are the shoes no one will even see, except for a very few. But still they must be perfect!

* Some brides feel the shoes are the least important of the wedding day attire, and they choose to wear decorated tennis shoes.
* Some hardly think of the shoes at all except as something to cover their tired feet and so they choose ballet slippers.
* While others want the most ornate shoe with the highest heel ever making them feel more regal and more elegant.

One of the most important things a bride-to-be must realize, is that the height of the shoe must come first and that the shoes are important to the altering of the dress. Once you’ve established the height of the heel, you must have the shoes in order to have your wedding gown fitted properly. Changing the height will change the hem of the dress.

I recommend that once you’ve found your dress, you start looking for the perfect shoes immediately for your wedding. You should have your shoes by the time your gown is delivered and ready to be altered. You will need to bring your shoes to every fitting so that the hemline remains the same.
