Bride Chic: Shoe Savvy Bridal Fashion

About Bride Chic The ongoing dialogue about finding the perfect bridal shoe seems to go something like this: Comfort first but hey, what better occasion to show off those Jimmy Choos? My suggestion is to find that happy heel height (for most brides, it's 2 inches) where you can maneuver around greeting guests and being a bride without sore calves and blistered feet. Because we have such a vast array to choose from these days, it's hard to believe once upon a time etiquette dictated there was one type of shoe you could wear on your wedding day: closed toe pumps in white or ivory peau satin. While closed toe satin is still elegant, so are the purple satin mules and peachy Christian Louboutins below. Both would pair up nicely with just about any silhouette. The powder-puff marabou mules (photo 3) were once the chi-chi footwear confined to the boudoir and worn almost exclusively with negligee and penoir sets. Popularized by Jean Harlow, they were trendy all through the 50s and early 60s. Now they can be flaunted and worn out to the most glam events- including your wedding. The bridal thong. Not just for beach weddings, brides who want chic as well as comfort have found this happy medium. If you're curious how that trend towards shoes in hues got started, here's the skinny: brides have been breaking tradition on all fronts of wedding fashion, accessorizing included. In my own experience working with them, it really took hold once wedding dresses with touches of color came into play. That blue sash or belt; red trimmed neckline or black lace overlay. Now it's caught on and even brides all dressed in white from veil to hem are sporting green, blue, red or yellow shoes under their gown. While the styles pictured here are tres chic now, you can go beyond and be daring if you want. Have a pair of those pink vintage stilettos from the 1960s in the storeroom? Wear them. And if you want some kind of lace-up spectator pumps or fur boots, go for them; think about how you can work them into your ensemble. There's always a way. Know that shoes can be one of the most creative aspects of pulling your look together...
