wed­ding shoe trends

My Wedding - - WEDDING SHOE TRENDS - By Re­bekah Reynolds

One of the many de­ci­sions fac­ing a bride is the type of shoe to choose for her spe­cial day. To help with that de­ci­sion, we are tak­ing a look at cur­rent bri­dal shoe trends. With the lace and beads and spe­cial de­tail­ing adorn­ing gowns to­day, the clas­sic ivory or white shoe in a sim­ple style is a per­fect op­tion to com­ple­ment rather than de­tract from the dress. Trousseau Bri­dal & Evening Shoes have some ex­cel­lent op­tions to choose from - for ex­am­ple, the Vi­vian with an el­e­gant stiletto and pointed toe and Mag­no­lia with a more rounded toe.

The sec­ond trend, and al­ways pop­u­lar, is the ex­quis­ite crys­tal shoe - es­pe­cially those adorned with Swarovski crys­tals that pro­vide a mag­i­cal sparkle. Th­ese shoes will al­ways have a place for some brides. The Rhi­ana, Cather­ine and Bedaz­zle are all favourites in this cat­e­gory.

The ex­cit­ing news at Trousseau is that, for the first time, there are also crys­tal shoes that come in three beau­ti­ful

colours: blue, fuch­sia and cham­pagne.

This brings us to the third trend of dye­ing shoes to a par­tic­u­lar colour. This trend def­i­nitely suits the bride who wants to move away from the more tra­di­tional look or wants her wed­ding shoes to be some­thing she can wear again and con­tinue to love af­ter the big day.

Cherry Son­derer from Trousseau has had a num­ber of brides re­cently who have cho­sen to dye their shoes for their wed­ding day. “We are find­ing more and more brides re­cently are opt­ing to dye their bri­dal shoes. Some have cho­sen to match their flow­ers, brides­maid’s colours, or sim­ply their own favourite colour that they have never been able to find a pair of shoes in. Hav­ing a touch of colour peek­ing out be­neath your gown also adds a bit of fun and in­ter­est.”

Cherry warns though that not all shoes can be dyed. “The shoes must be made of nat­u­ral fab­rics and have no syn­thetic fi­bre in them.” If you have opted for an ivory or white shoe for the day, they can of course also be dyed af­ter­wards for con­tin­ued use.

Trousseau is solely ded­i­cated to bri­dal and evening footwear and they take a great deal of pride in en­sur­ing that you have the right shoe to take you down the aisle ... or onto the beach, or through the vine­yard. Cherry says: “Many brides come to us and are un­sure of what they are look­ing for, so we work with them to find the right shoe. We also ad­vise on cor­rect fit to en­sure com­fort for the du­ra­tion – it’s a long day and the last thing a bride wants to worry about is ill-fit­ting and un­com­fort­able footwear.”
