[Trend Alert] How To Reinvent Your Wedding Shoes


03/10/2018 | Bridal Shoe Trends

The Problem With Wedding Shoe Shopping.

Finding that perfect pair of wedding shoes can be a struggle, right?

There are so many things to take into consideration that you would never normally think about when buying shoes.

Do they have padding?

Are they the exact height that I want?

Will they be comfortable and look pretty for the entire day?

What’s made this decision even more difficult has been the recent introduction of beautifully intricate bridal shoes – like those from ‘Bella Belle Bridal’, ‘Ted Baker’, and ‘Jimmy Choo’ – that are splashed across our social media feeds.

Whose wedding shoe collections don’t only feature coloured satin, but also delicate metal embellishments, or deeply intricate embroidery.

I know, they sound amazing!

But don’t fall in love just yet. Investing in a pair of wedding shoes from any of these luxury brands will leave a much larger dent in your wedding fund than you (or your husband-to-be) would want.

 

So now you have more stress.

And all for a pair for shoes that you might only wear once in your life, for a single day.

And that have the potential to go unnoticed by 90% of people as they stay perfectly concealed under your beautiful dress.

Fantastic.

How I can help.

That’s my cue to swoop in and save the day!

Having worked with countless brides experiencing these exact problems, and having been a bride myself, I’m highly aware of the frustration women go through as they look for their perfect pumps.

Or stilettos.

Or sandals.

Which is precisely why I work with brands that allow you as a bride to reinvent your chosen wedding shoes not only for your wedding day itself. But also for the occasions you’ll wear them at after.

Because believe me, you’ll be wearing these shoes for a long time after your wedding day!

 

My Top Brands

I work with 3 fantastic wedding & occasion shoe companies. All of which offer bespoke dying services for any of their satin products – either for a very small fee, or, for free!

My brands are: Rainbow Club, The Perfect Bridal Company, & Paradox London.

In addition to this, Rainbow Club have recently released their own range of interchangeable shoe clips; which further allow you to accessorise your wedding shoes. Making them easily reusable after the big day!

 

Why Dyeable Shoes Are For You.

1. They still feel like wedding shoes.
My favourite thing about dyeable wedding shoes is that you get to have your cake and eat it.

In the sense that, you still get to have quirky, coloured wedding shoes that reflect your personality & the tone of your wedding, whilst also knowing that you’re wearing wedding shoes. And not some funky blood red shoes from ‘Schuh’.

Wearing ‘authentic’ bridal shoes might not seem important now. But believe me, when you put them on on your wedding day, they just complete your outfit. They make you feel like a bride. So having the opportunity to dye them any colour to suit your special day is a wonderful option!

2. You can make your own ‘something blue’.
‘Something Blue’ wedding shoes have been a big hit in 2018. And with the shoe dye services like the ones offered by my 3 wedding shoe companies, it’s easy to see why.

So why not choose to make your own ‘something blue’, & get your wedding shoes dyed any shade of this lucky colour for your big day?

3. You can colour match your shoes to your occasion outfits!
How many times have you had a formal event to go to and have tried to colour coordinate your accessories? Now you don’t have to worry about all of that!

Reuse your wedding shoes after the big day by getting them dyed to match your occasion outfits.

Simply request a colour from the company’s colour chart, or send a swatch of fabric that is your desired colour to the shoe company, and they’ll colour match the fabric so that your shoes match your existing accessories perfectly! It’s as easy as that.

Why Shoe Clips Are Genius.

Shoe clips were huge in the 1950’s and 60’s.

When the fashion industry was more understanding of people not having the funds to blow on countless pairs of shoes, they brought out shoe clips to allow women to dress their shoes up or down with different accessories and embellishments.

Thankfully, the world of fashion has fallen back in love with shoe clips and many companies have recently introduced their own collection. Many, for bridal shoes!

Opting for shoe clips for your bridal shoes is a genius idea.

Not only are these accessories not a costly option for your bridal look. But they’re also interchangeable with any other shoes in your existing collection.

Meaning that those tired, plain stilettos at the back of your wardrobe will have a new lease of life!

What’s more. Bridal shoe clips also mean that you don’t have the scour the internet for a costly bridal shoe with pretty embellishments.

Instead you can purchase a pair of plain, satin shoes within your budget & dress them up as you please!

I love it!

 

Top Tip: Shoe clips can also be used as hair accessories or as embellishments for your favourite clutch bags!
