How to Avoid or Fix Wedding Shoe Mistakes
There’s so much to plan and organise for a wedding, we understand it’s easy to forget. However, your shoes are important. When you’re spending hours on your feet throughout the day, having painful shoes is not ideal! Our bespoke wedding shoes can help you avoid all of these common wedding shoe mistakes!
1. Forgetting to break them in
We all know the pain of new shoes- the blisters, the blood, the throbbing- this isn’t a glamourous feeling on your wedding day! Brides often buy standard size shoes, and do not wear them until they walk down the aisle. This causes a distracting discomfort throughout the day! There are ways to make your shoe more comfortable, but for premium comfort, try our bespoke fitting service. Using our innovative fitting technology to create a shoe mould within minutes that is then used to create a last to make your precision fit shoes.
Plus, every design is comfort optimised. Every pair of Solely Original shoes are made with an ultra-soft memory foam sole and heels are made with heel grips to prevent blisters and arch support to relieve pressure. Every bride who designs with us is guaranteed a pain free wedding day!
2. Wearing the Wrong Shoes for Your Dress
All eyes are going to be on you during the day, so you have to look good! Make sure your dress and shoes are coordinated using our 3D designer. You can create your dream shoe, choosing which type of shoe, which heel height/type, material, colours and any embellishments. So you’re guaranteed to find your perfect pair!
Our designer features several traditional bridal combinations, such as ivory, white satin, or you can personalise and break away from tradition. Alternatively, you can provide us with a swatch of fabric from your dress. Then you can wear your shoes with the memory of your big day.
In addition to personalizing your comfortable wedding shoes in a very elegant way, the detachable bridal shoe clips can be added to all shoes you have chosen for the big day, from the ceremonial heels to the reception flats.
Shoe clips are also a great way to incorporate the wedding ceremony colours in your bridal look or even adding the “something blue” to your special day. Plus, you can use the shoe clips in any other pair of shoes you have after the wedding – like a lovely memory of your big day!
3. Going in Unprepared
Familiar is better. If you are used to ballet pumps, your wedding day is probably not the best day for a style makeover to 6” stilettos. Avoid the wedding shoe mistake of stepping out of your comfort zone. Our bespoke service means all of our shoes are custom made, and made to order. Therefore, sandals for your beach wedding or flats for you to dance in, are available all year round. Our Shop the Look collection has a fashionable range of designs that you will not want to take off.
3. Less organised brides
They say planning a wedding is one of the most stressful times of your life! But as long as you look and feel good, that’s all that matters. One of the most common wedding shoe mistakes is not ordering on time. Therefore, it’s important to make sure your shoes are ordered and arrive on time for your dress fitting. The height of your shoes may mean you require dress alterations. Our custom bridal shoes arrive with Express Delivery in 2-4 weeks. Plus, we are happy to make any alterations you need to the shoes.
4. Not Taking Care of Yourself
If your shoes are open toe or sandals, you want your feet looking just as good as the rest of you. Taking the time for a pedicure before your big day will go a long way, leaving you with the perfect feet for both your wedding and your honeymoon too! Get honeymoon ready with perfect feet!
Designing your perfect wedding shoes has never been easier!
