Bridal Shoes: Flat or Heeled?

Planning a wedding is wonderful and creative and stressful and, … well, it’s a lot of things! There are a lot of decisions to be made, from who to invite and where to seat them to ceremony details, venues and food options – let alone décor! Oh boy. So what’s the most important detail? For many brides it’s their outfit. Often the first thing on the to-do list, the wedding dress is a very important piece of the puzzle that can set the tone for the whole affair.

  1. Style

Deciding on a wedding dress style can be difficult, but your silhouette should always be based on your body type. Certain silhouettes flatter certain body types, and certain body types can pull off just about any look – the important thing is to choose a style that is both functional and flattering. A strapless dress on a large bust may result in you having to fuss with the dress all night to keep yourself contained, or a big heavy ball gown on the beach may leave you overheated and uncomfortable throughout the day. Choose wisely.

  1. The shoes

Once you have decided on your dress, move onto the bridal shoes! There are a few points to consider when choosing your shoes, primarily whether you want them to be a statement piece or not. Do you want your shoes to be colorful, or intricately detailed, or to be accessorized with cute after-market baubles?  The style of your shoes should complement your gown, so if you choose a vintage frock, lean toward a more vintage shoe style. A heeled oxford ankle boot, for example, could be a cute way to enhance your look. You can modernize the look by going with a more modern material or accessory for the shoe, or you can double-down on the look by choosing this shoe in lace.

  1. Heels or flats?

Ah yes, the age old question: How do you decide whether or not to wear high-heels or flats with your wedding gown? The primary consideration for this should be your natural height, along with your groom. Secondary to these points, is how you both feel about either option. If he is the same height or shorter than you? The good news is that you have many options when it comes to high-heels. You can choose a kitten heel if you are tall, which will still make you feel elegant and dressy, without adding to you vertically. If you are short you have many more options. You can rock down the aisle in stilettos if you are skilled enough, but may need to have a pair of flat shoes on hand to change into later.

The good news is that flats and heels are acceptable for the modern bride, regardless of your height. Flats are a great option for a beach wedding, or for the taller bride, and heels are well suited to banquet spaces, and shorter brides – but in the end, it’s whatever makes you the most comfortable. There is a massive selection of bridal shoes available on our online store at Eleanor Anukam Footwear, from traditional white satin to cobalt blue, and everything in between!
