Tips for Short Brides

  • The first thing you should take into account is volume. When you are short, you should avoid a lot of volume and instead, go for a tube or mermaid cut dress. The tightest your dress is, the taller you will look. In case you want to have a little volume on your dress, we recommend you to wear an A-line one.
  • A dress with jewel details is also a great choice. The only thing you must take into account is that the jewelry must never be below your hips and of course, you should not abuse them; otherwise, the effect will not be as desired.
  • When you are to choose the color, go for only one shade. Combining colors or shades will actually make you look shorter and that is what we want to avoid. Also, try not to choose a dress with prints.
  • Elude any round-necked dress, it will not favor you at all. Instead choose a V-neckline which not only stylize your shoulders and neck, but it will only make you seem taller. Don’t be afraid of wearing a cleavage, it will definitely flatter your figure.
  • As a bride to be, you may probably be dreaming with a long tail or vail. However, we are afraid to tell you that in your case, this is not a good idea as it will emphasize your height. Instead of a veil, you could wear a beautiful headdress which will make you look elegant and even taller.
  • Stay away from big accessories. You could wear whatever you like but of an average size so you do not overdo your look.
  • Shoes are your best allies when you are short. Therefore, do not be afraid to wear high heels. The higher they are, the higher you will look. Of course, do not compromise comfort. Choose high heels that you know you will be able to carry all day without ending up walking weird or with a terrible feet pain.
  • Finally, a great tip to get a couple additional centimeters is with your hairstyle. Bet for high ponytails or buns. These will not only make you look elegant but also taller.

Hopefully, these tips will help you looks even better for your special day. Good luck!

"I Do" Wedding Shoes

"I Do" Wedding Shoes Heart + Sole “Shoe Talk” Stick on Decals for Shoes

Have you seen those cute engagement and wedding photos that focuses in on the sole of the bride and grooms shoes (p.s. if you can see the photo above, then yes you have!)? This is an adorable and cute trend that just adds a little something extra to your wedding day.

If you want this photo for your engagements, consider wearing the same shoes you are going to wear on your wedding day for your engagements so that you don't have to buy two different sets of "I do" shoe stickers. If you are a gal that never wears the same thing twice (or doesn't want to for her wedding), then go ahead and buy two separate sets. This also gives you the freedom to use different sayings. For example, in your engagement photos you could use sayings like the "Yes!", "Heart + Sole", or "I Do", and then for the wedding day you could use the "Initial" decal for a "Mrs. Initial of your new least name" and then the "She's Mine" or "I'm Taken" decal. With that in mind you may want to get two different sets whether you wear the same wedding shoes or not!

Writing on Wedding Shoes

Aside for creating some cute photos, the shoe decals add that something special to your wedding look. Of course you will be wearing a beautiful dress and will be gorgeous from head to toe, but this is a way to add a sweet  or fun note that only those that pay attention will notice. Another way of doing this on your wedding day is to have either the bride's parents or her bridesmaids write a special note on the bottom of her shoes, and then the grooms parents or groomsmen on the bottom of his shoes. The wonderfully sappy idea here would be that the bride and groom would have the words of encouragement and advice with them as they begin the walk of their new and incredible journey. A lot of brides will have their loved ones write in blue sharpie in order to incorporate it as a very personalized something blue.

If the Shoe Fits, Wear it in a Bright Color

If the Shoe Fits, Wear it in a Bright Color!

Splash of Sunshine Wedding Shoes It is of course traditional in mainstream society for the bride to wear all white: White veil, white dress, white shoes. But what if you are one of those gals that just can't help but always want to wear a pop of color? You could select a dress that has colored beading, wear a colorful petticoat, or a colored veil, but one of the easiest and most fun ways to include that drop of sunshine in your white wedding look is to have some peek-a-boo color with your wedding shoes.

Stand Out on Your Own

Green Wedding Shoes

A lot of brides that want to have that spice of color in their wedding look will choose to have that bright color featured only on themselves, or in a way that is unique to them. For example if you want to have some peek-a-boo green shoes, green may be one of your wedding colors, but you wouldn't have your bridesmaid's wearing the color or even having their shoes being in the same color. If anything, their bouquets may feature some green in either the flowers or in the ribbon. Ideally, your shoe color pop would be in one of the color accents your are featuring in your wedding color scheme, but probably not the main color. Doing this, makes your color pop, more of a stand out, rather than a matchy match look.

Match the Bridesmaids Trend Alert: Brightly Colored Shoes with Little Black Dresses   Another options is to match your bridesmaids. This is done in three variations. First you can wear the same shoe in the same color as each of your bridesmaids like shown in the image above. Or, you can wear shoes in the same bright color, but a different style. For example, if your bridesmaids are wearing red heels like in the image above, you might be wearing red flats, or higher heels, or perhaps sequined heels (a little wizard of Oz theme?). The third "match your bridesmaids" is to match not the shoe color, but the dress color. So, if your bridesmaids are in purple dress and black pumps, then you would wear purple pumps.

Color is the Thing

Trend Alert: Brightly Colored Shoes with Little Black Dresses

Or if your color scheme really is just COLOR all around, then you might decide to go for a rainbow styled bridal party. With this each bridesmaid gets her own color and the bride gets her own color like in the image above. If you do want to do a rainbow bridal party, we do recommend having the girls and guys wear a solid black ( or other neutral color) and then have the bright rainbow touches in the bouquets, shoes, socks, and ties. There is such a thing as too much color!

Cool and Comfortable Bridal Shoes

Though they used to be a stark white afterthought, bridal shoes are taking center stage as an essential part of the perfect bridal outfit. They should stand out when you want them to, but take a back seat when all eyes are on the altar. Here are a few quick tips for selecting the right pair of fun bridal shoes for you, and a couple of suggestions for when you start your long hunt for the perfect kicks:

Stick to your Comfort Zone
If you never wear platforms or crazy high heels, now is not the time to try them out. If you’re most comfortable in sandals and flats, don’t let your bridal fantasies trick you into buying a pair of shoes you would have never looked twice at otherwise. No amount of practice between purchase and the big day will be enough for you to strut with the confidence you need to not take a tumble half way through the day. If you’re focusing on not falling to an untimely demise in a pair of six-inch monsters, you won’t have a chance to enjoy your own wedding. Plus, broken metatarsals make for crummy honeymoons.

Don’t Get Cheap
We all know what it’s like to bend to cheap shoes at discounters only to have your feet protesting in agony after a day at the office. Imagine that, but ten times worse. If you’ve ever had an excuse to splurge on pretty shoes, this is it. You’re going to be standing in them all day, and the last thing you want to be worried about is a pair of screaming feet. Buy smart, break them in well before the big day, and don’t let the photographer catch you slinging them off before the first dance. Keep the Wild Ones Under Wraps
The crazier and more colorful the shoe, the more control you’re going to want to have over when they make an appearance, especially if you’re having a more formal ceremony in a church or other solemn site. Long dresses are better suited to wild shoes, as they won’t be the center of attention the entire evening. Stick out your feet to show them off at the reception and for the photographer, but you may want to keep under wraps when you’re taking your vows – that’s when you want all eyes on you, not your feet.

The Many Faces of Wedding Shoes!

Wedding Shoes: a Pair for Every Reason

Wedding Shoes

  A bride doesn’t just wear one pair of wedding shoes during her big day. After all, the big event is more of a marathon that requires something a little sturdier than a pair of heels to make it through. Wedding shoes for the day of your nuptials will range from a pair of special fuzzy embroidered slippers (because everything should be personal and beautiful on your wedding day), wedding flip flops (don’t ruin that pedicure!), wedding slip-ons (for the dance floor), and a good solid pair of honeymoon sandals. Your wedding shoes will carry you down the aisle and beyond, so be prepared! First, some wedding shoes that will help you make it through the morning will be your slippers. Think about getting a few matching pairs for you and your maids so your “getting ready” pictures will look cute and unified. They’re also a great gift if you get them embroidered! Your next pair of wedding shoes will be your flip flops. These wedding shoes are great for a beach shindig or just the trip from the salon to the car – again, these wedding shoes are also great gifts for your maids. Slip-on wedding shoes can be shared with your wedding party or even your entire female guest list if you’re feeling generous. Slip-on wedding shoes that fit comfortably in a makeup bag will keep your tootsies comfortable all through the night. Don’t forget your favorite pair of wedding shoes: honeymoon sandals! No beach vacation is complete without some bragging rights on your feet!

Every Bride Needs a Pair of Fun Wedding Shoes!

Awesome, (Subtle), Fun Wedding Shoes

Fun Wedding Shoes

  There are so many pieces to a wedding ensemble, and that’s half the fun of putting together your wedding day outfit. Everything about the pieces a bride wears on her big day makes them personal, fun, and memorable – why leave out the shoes? Many brides will forget about her fun wedding shoes until the last second (unless her fun wedding shoes are a big part of the outfit, a la cowboy boots or pink sneakers) or will eschew the purchase entirely, opting for more traditional footwear, but even the most formal of brides can partake in a good pair of fun wedding shoes with a little know-how and some creativity. Fun wedding shoes don’t have to be loud and crazy as you walk down the aisle, they can be just as subtle as a pair of sensible black heels. Fun wedding shoes can be as simple as a cute message on the sole – visible only to the sly photographer who grabs a picture of you and your maid getting ready, or you putting your feet up after a long day of nuptials. Fun wedding shoes can indulge a pun “Heart + Sole” or be as simple as a set of “I Do” shoe stickers. Fun wedding shoes are versatile and sharp without being too conspicuous – so indulge and enjoy!

A must-have item for the wedding day or beach honeymoon

On the eve of her wedding, a bride will need accessories that are functional and fashionable. There are some off-beat, albeit vital things that a bride-to-be must have with her. One of them is a wedding day flip flop for casual usage; we suggest you go for a fancy flip flop in keeping with the mood and the occasion. There are wonderful wedding day tropical sandals that will come in handy for moving around. They come in eye-catching colors. Check the strap quality or we suggest you keep an extra pair of flip flops in case the one you are wearing gets un-strapped. The finish and smoothness of soles is also a key factor. Soothing soles of your wedding day flip flop will make sure that you are feeling comfortable. These are some must-have items for wedding. They can also be of a great value during your beach honeymoon. These flip flops are a favorite of most brides, and not difficult to know, why! These are the accessories, which you might tend to overlook so this will serve as a timely reminder.
