You all voted on Instagram, so we answered! But not to worry we will get to the grand exit another week:)
Lets talk about the shoe! probably the most important accessory after the wedding dress. Have no fear, finding the right shoe is a lot easier then finding the dress. We are here to answer all your glass slipper questions.
When should I go shoe shopping?
You should go shoe shopping right before your alterations, this is because your seamstress needs the perfect hem with your shoes. So here’s the reason to go shopping during that time, lets say you are deciding between about 2 to 3 pairs of shoes. Buy all 3 and bring them to your first alterations and try them all on with your dress, then decide on one there. However if you want 2 of them just make sure they are the same height so it doesn’t change the length of your hem. But when you decide you can return the others, that way you’re still in a 30 day return time! Genius!
I can’t decide between flats or heels!
You can never go wrong with a cute pair of flats, they are comfy all day and night. However it is possible to have a comfy pair of heels too. We always tell brides that if they are going with a heel to have some sort of platform on the bottom and more a block heel. This insures comfort and balance, whereas a stiletto heel you could sink into the grass or the dirt during the ceremony. Walking in heels isn’t the easiest thing for some women, but for those who can, you work those Red Bottoms!
It’s okay to break in the shoes before!
For the more stubborn shoes, don’t be afraid to wear them out and around. You want to break those bad boys in before you wear them for the most important day of your life. Whether they’re flats, sandals, pumps, wedges, or even sneakers, wear them 2-3 times before the wedding to insure that they fit perfect and they are formed to your foot shape. If you need to get some inserts to help, then do it. The good news is, is that your feet and shoes are only going to peak through the dress, so you will not even be able to see the insoles.
They say diamonds are a girls best friend, they clearly haven’t been to the Nordstrom shoe sale. Feel free to call or DM us on Instagram and Facebook if you have anymore shoe related questions, or just more questions. And for those of you who voted for Grand Exit Ideas look out for next weeks blog!
