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. Check out the Real Weddings blog featuring our ballet slippers.

You’ve got the little black dress, the jewelry and your date for you holiday party. But what about the most important accessory of them all? Sexy high heels in tons of styles and colors and sparkle. Jazz up the same black dress you’ve worn the past few years with a gorgeous pair of holiday shoes fit for the red carpet.
Shop for peep toe heels, open toe heels, sky high platform pumps, strappy stilletos and other show stopping evening shoes at Advantage Bridal. Whether you’re looking for heels in fire engine red, glitzy gold, jet black, striking silver, rich purple, nude, animal print or multi-color sparkles, we have the perfect holiday shoes that will wow.
Save your flats for the office and show off your flirty side. Even if you don’t have a date for the annual Christmas party, you may end up leaving with one!
Reminder: Don’t forget to follow the rules for holiday parties, so you can face your co-workers the next day without embarrassment (just a tip, you might not want to sing Ice Ice Baby for karaoke). Popular makeover shows like How Do I Look and What Not To Wear show viewers how easy it is to go from drab to fab, but you don’t need a TV show to impress friends and family with a mini makeover of your own.
Wear something a little more daring – out of your comfort zone. If you always wear pants, try a skirt or dress. Ditch the Christmas sweater and add glam with rhinestone jewelry, red lipstick and sparkly heels. With some effort, you’ll be a knockout in no time. A fabulous pair of sexy heels never go out of style.

Shopping for wedding shoes is almost as fun as choosing your wedding dress. The right shoes will look fantastic with your gown and in pictures.
While style is key, comfort shouldn’t be overlooked.
From the time you slip into your gown until your last dance, you’ll be on your feet more hours than you may realize.
Choosing the right pair:
- The style of your wedding shoes should complement your gown. You don’t want them to clash with or overpower your bridal ensemble.
- Consider the venue before selecting high heels – you’ll get caught in the grass in stilettos. Wear wedge shoes or square heels, bridal flats or sandals for an outdoor venue or beach wedding.
- Pick a heel height you’re comfortable wearing. If you don’t wear heels, practice wearing them around the house until you feel OK.
- Break your shoes in or you could suffer later. Shoe inserts and pads help make heels more comfortable.
- Choose a pair you love! If you love stilettos, get them and then have a backup pair of flats for the reception.
- Traditional brides lean toward ivory or white heels to match their gown.
- Modern brides opt for bold colors, statement heels or designer shoes they can wear after the wedding.
- Keep in mind; colors vary so view it in the correct lighting.
- Dyeable shoes are a great choice for custom colors. Make sure fabric samples are at least 2” x 2” for the best match.
- For Dyeables, ask about the cast of the color and examine the shoe in a light box. Achieving an exact match might be difficult, so pick a complementary color instead.
Save or splurge:
- There are plenty of options for bridal shoes under $100 or wedding shoes under $50 on the market, but don’t forget comfort.
- Affordable shoes are fine since you’ll only wear them once. You can also find a pair you’ll wear again that don’t say “bride.”
- Shop designer and couture bridal shoes if it’s time to splurge. You’ll be amazed at the details, quality and unique styles available.
If you had more fun shopping for shoes than you did shopping for your dress, send pics of your fabulous footwear to Advantage Bridal so we can see why! Confessions of a shoeaholic will be kept anonymous

A woman’s shoe is said to convey a lot about her personality. Women who think of themselves as tall are always encouraged to embrace their stature and rock their heels, but lately more “tall brides” are electing to wear flats at their wedding. Another reason we’ve noticed a change in wedding footwear is the newfound preference of comfort–this IS the day you want to be able to dance for hours without getting sore feet, after all!
One popular practice is to wear your statement heels during your ceremony, and then slip into flats or sandals for your reception. Some brides prefer to forgo the trend and make a statement by wearing shoes which better reflect their personal style: we’ve seen this with bridal foot jewelry at the beach, ballet flats dyed to match your wedding color scheme, and more recently, with Tom’s shoes. Advantage Bridal carries flats from many different designers.
When shopping for wedding shoes, a bride can choose heels for her ceremony and then before her reception may wish to slip into flat wedding shoes by designers such as Dessy Ballet Flats, which come in a rainbow of shades, and Lindsay Phillips Flats, which come with interchangeable jewel brooch embellishments.
Spare Soles Roll Up Ballet Flats are foldable shoes that can fit inside a purse, allowing for a quick change from heels into fashionable ballet slippers! They work great for receptions, thus make functional and thoughtful bridesmaids gifts. Bridesmaids love receiving these shoes as gifts because they can be kept nearly anywhere for any time they might need to switch shoes!
