We love heels as much any woman and if you’re anything like us, they’re more like closet decorations than every day shoes. But that doesn’t stop us from adding to our collection. Remember Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City? She was a self-proclaimed shoe addict. So while you want to look fabulous from head to toe on your wedding day, high heels probably aren’t the right shoes for an eight hour day. Yes, we all sacrifice in the name of fashion, in the name of looking good, and in the name of our fave designer. But we have a better idea.
Why not select two pairs of wedding shoes? You can wear the couture heels down the aisle and for photographs and switch to ballet slippers or ballet flats for the reception. Better yet, consider wearing an alternate dress, too. Kate Middleton is doing it. We’re not saying you should blow your budget on becoming the bride fashionista of the 21st century. We’re suggesting that you balance your budget so that you can look great and be comfortable after the ceremony, because we know you’ll be dancing the night away to the hits of the 80s and 90s. Ballet slippers add an elegant touch and are available in numerous colors and styles – even the classic lace-up ballet shoes. Think prima ballerina meets modern bride, what a beautiful combination.
