Aruna Seth’s tips to help pick perfect bridal shoes
Bride Club ME shoe addicts and lovers of all things beautiful, this is for you. Aruna Seth, renowned bridal shoe designer, shares her expertise to brides-to-be on choosing faultless bridal shoes for your big–day.
♡Comfort is Key
A wedding day involves hours of standing upright, from walking down the aisle, posing for photographs and the first dance. Wedding shoes should be functional and practical helping you smile all day. Ask yourself if you can walk in your shoes? Will they be comfy all day? Practice walking in them before the big day to break them in. Aruna Seth shoes are uniquely comfortable wedding shoes, the sole contains a special plush cushioned padding to give cashmere like comfort to your feet all day long.
♡Choose Wedding Shoes You Love
A need for feet to be ultra comfortable all day doesn’t mean jeopardising style. Choose wedding shoes you’ll love and treasure for years to come. Unlike your wedding dress, if you pick the right shoe they can be worn again for other occasions. You want to feel beautiful and sexy on your wedding day, a good pair of shoes is the best pick-me-up even on a normal day. Don’t fret over following fashion trends, if you pick a classic style they will stand the test of time in the wedding photo–album for years to come.
Shoes are as important as the wedding dress and many brides neglect giving them priority. Often brides focus purely on the wedding dress and leave shoes till last. Brides are left to make hasty, rushed last minute decisions that may destroy the harmony of the dress. Choose your shoes around the same time as your wedding dress, for one you’ll need to bring them to fittings because shoe heights determine the length of the dress. Of course, I’d say shoes are the most important feature of the wedding because I love and design shoes. Matching shoes look neater and it’s better not to be disappointed if a designer is unable to supply you with a shoe you’ve fallen in love with, due to a short-time frame.
♡Pick the Right Heel Height
Pick the right heel–height, stiletto loving brides may need to compromise on heel–heights, consider if your husband will be embarrassed in the altar or wedding pictures if you are towering above him. Choose a heel height you’re comfortable with. If you normally wear kitten heels stay with this height, a sudden desire to start tottering around in six-inch heels just because it’s a special day may backfire.
♡Theme Your Shoes
Brides-to-be love to theme weddings so involve shoes in the theme too. Lots of brides call us to request our beautiful Farfalla butterfly shoes and brooches, fitting in with their butterfly themed weddings. If you have a flair for style and themes, make sure every single detail is flawless. Match your embellishments up, a sparkly dress, coloured jewels or pearl features can all find a beautiful shoe counterpart so feet match with the wedding theme.
♡Treat your feet
Remember to schedule a lovely pedicure before your big day. Slip your feet into your gorgeous wedding shoes with soft skin, neat cuticles and glossy painted nails. Pedicures instantly make you feel relaxed, refreshed and special. You’ll impress your new husband with smooth-skin and of course may entice him into giving you a foot massage on your first night of marriage.
Choose shoes compatible with your wedding surroundings, pick shoes suitable for your wedding venue. For example wedges and flats are best for garden weddings to save yourself from muddy heels. Flat sandals are best for beach weddings and certain (usually historic) venues forbid high-heeled shoes for fear of flooring being damaged. There is a wide range of bridal shoes available to suit different wedding environments for example a winter wedding can be complemented by white glamorous snow-boots.
