Bride's shoes and accessories
Any outfit is incomplete if not complemented with proper
footwear and accessories. This is especially true for
the bride's wedding dress; without matching shoes and
jewelry, the charm of the dress will not fully realized.
To get the best match, brides need to get an expert's
opinion in case they or their friends are not very well
acquainted with the latest trends and styles. Wedding
apparel is not the same as your daily wear wardrobe.
Wedding shoes are created for a unique occasion and
hence not every person can visualize their requirements
and appropriateness in regards to style of their dress.
The best people to provide the right consultation are
the wedding salon staff and the wedding gown designer.
The shoe selection depends upon the design and material
of the wedding gown. If your bridal dress is long and
flowing with elaborate trails, then the shoes will not
be highlighted and can be kept simple. However, their
color should match that of the wedding dress. In case
your feet are fairly visible after donning the dress,
then you need to take special efforts to pick the right
shoes. One option is to get the outside of the shoes
made of the same color and pattern as that of the dress.
However, this method would work only in case of selected
materials and hence should not be randomly applied.
Another idea for matching shoes is to get them custom
made so that they blend with the dress design. If the
bride is going to wear a short dress, then there is
an unlimited scope for creativity to shape the shoes
in varied styles and patterns. Women can opt for a Roman
style slipper pattern, cowboy boots, high-heeled stilettos,
platforms and many more.
Bridal accessories are available in a range of designs,
colors and are segregated according to different themes.
The jewelry that the bride adorns corresponds to the
theme of the wedding. For instance, if the wedding is
to be in a colonial setting, then the ornaments could
be huge jewels in gold base, whereas if it is a modern
theme, then the accessories would be of a more contemporary
style. Previously brides were fond of gold ornaments,
since there was a major gold craze. The more contemporary
fashion is for unconventional jewelry made of white
gold, platinum, silver, and bronze apart from imitation
jewelry. Each bridal dress will have its own unique
specifications and the accessories worn with the dress
should complement the look and blend well to accentuate
Tips for shoes and accessory trials
To make sure that the shoes and accessory you choose
for your special day are befitting your outfit, it is
advisable to try the entire apparel together before
your wedding. Wearing the shoes and walking in them
around the house will not only make them a little more
flexible but also give you an idea how comfortable they
are to walk in. Since you will have to wear the shoes
for the entire wedding day, you need to make sure that
they are snug or there is a chance you might get a shoe
bite or a sore toe by the end of the event. The jewelry
should also be worn prior to the main event to check
whether or not your skin develops any rash or is allergic
to the ornaments you have chosen.
