when it comes to finding the PERFECT shoe for your wedding dress, it can be a little intimidating. I consider a few things ...

 1) what is the overall 'feel' or 'vibe' of your wedding/dress/decor? 

 my theme was vintage so I didn't want my shoes to be too trendy or take up too much attention, as I wanted the focus to be on my dress. I opted for a nude heel, about 3 inches tall (so my dress wouldn't drag) and they were open toed (my dress was more tapered near my feet so a pointed toe style would've stuck out) it's SO important to accommodate details like that regarding the dress as to which style of shoe you should even be in the market for ;) 

this also pertains to your location, your venue, your style ...

choose a pair of shoes that compliments and goes along with your theme, I know brides that have had their receptions in a barn, and their vibe is more country so they wear fun cowgirl boots. or if you are having a lot of gold and white at your reception to have a shimmering pair of gold sandals. if sunflowers are your main flower in your bouquet, a bright yellow heel would be gorgeous to coordinate with that! there are so many ways to tie in colors, textures and patterns that fit perfectly with all other elements of your wedding day. 

2) do you want your shoes to be a focal point or blend in and compliment?

there is no right or wrong answer, some brides want neon pink shoes to contrast their brilliant white gown, while others want a more subtle look with a metallic, a nude or a blush. 

3) how much money do I spend?

this honestly comes down to your own budget, and if you have a love for shoes. I LOVE shoes, but I spent only about $30 on my wedding shoes (I found them at Payless! big shocker, I know! they were really cute and at that time in my life I didn't have the budget for a designer pair) looking back now I'm still proud of the shoes I chose. if you find a pair of designer shoes I always say make sure they aren't too 'trendy', you want the most wear out of them since you are spending more money on them. I honestly would choose a pair of shoes (if you are spending more $$$) that you'll want to wear even after your wedding day, I have heard of too many stories where women only wear that particular pair the day of and then never wear them again. 

in the image above are a variety of shoes I'm personally loving this season for wedding shoe options :) there are literally zillions of fun choices out there and there really is no right or wrong ;) as long as you're staying true to you and your style! you will LOVE your choice - now final tip - just make sure they're comfortable enough for you to stand in, dance in and take pictures in ;) because you'll be in them a while. 

thanks for stopping by!
congratulations to all you brides out there and remember to have fun!
