How to choose your perfect wedding shoes

Picking up your wedding shoes is an exciting part of your wedding preparations but it doesn’t mean it is easy. Indeed there are a lot of details to take into consideration like heels or flats? White or coloured? Sparkles?… You must be a bit confused about that which is why your favorite wedding planner Label’Emotion London gathered all its professional tips to help you finding the perfect wedding shoes!

You need to choose wedding shoes that suits YOU!

Choosing your wedding shoes is a moment that you want to share with your friends but they often have different opinions! You probably have already heard sentences like “Oh no, don’t even think about coloured heels, it is a lack of taste”, “you should not wear high heels won’t be able to wear it all day” or “minimum 5 inch or you will look to small on the pictures”. All these different ways of thinking must be confusing and Label’Emotion London is here to make this clear but you have to keep in mind that you should pick out wedding shoes which are more personal to YOU and YOUR sense of style.

Heels or flats?

If you are used to wearing high heels and you are comfortable in it you definitely can go for a 4 or 5 inch heels. On the contrary if you are not really used to it prefer flats or maximum a 3 inch heels. Even if you fell in love with a pair of skyscraper heels why take the chance on your big day? It’s probably not the time to experiment and it can be as sexy and elegant as high heels but the most important thing is that you will feel more comfortable and self-confident in it.
If you really want to walk down the aisle with heels, whatever the inch, be sure to have a spare pair of comfy wedding shoes on hand like flats or flip flops for the reception, so your focus will be on the dance floor and not on your blisters.
As a piece of advice don’t wear your shoes for the first time on your wedding day. Make sure you have them a few weeks before the wedding and wear them around the house to get them worn in a bit before the big day





Which type of shoes with a long or short dress?

If you choose to wear a long dress then prefer wedding shoes with sparkles on the tip, it is the most perceptive part of your shoes. If you opted for a short dress everybody will see your shoes so let your creativity and personality speak for you.
But whatever the type of dress you will wear choose the shoes that make you feel special with patterns, sparkles, a satin knot… Even though they will be covered up by your dress and no one else may see them, you will know they are there, that’s all that matters!
A little tip, take a swatch of your dress fabric with you when you choose your shoes to make sure that it matches up and the colour doesn’t clash.





Wedding shoes consistent with your theme and venue

Think about the type of wedding you’re having. If you’re planning a country garden, rustic or woodland wedding where you’ll spend a lot of time outdoors then wedges or flats would be a good option, or wear heel protectors.
If you’re having a winter wedding or just generally getting married in the UK (where rain is likely!), consider a pair of “Weddington Boots” so that you can walk through the snow and puddles and not spoil your wedding shoes.
