Save the Date. Pick the Shoes.
Brides to be have so much to think about when it comes to planning a wedding. I was watching an episode on David Tutera’s show, My Fair Wedding. The bride was a budding fashionista. She chose a Vera Wang dress and Christian Louboutin shoes for her big day. It was revealed that she spent all the money virtually on herself and cut the budget for all remaining items. So of course David Tutera, party planner extraordinaire, was there to save the day. It made me think what if the bride wouldn’t have received a call from the show, would she still have proceeded fabulously with her ill planned wedding all deck out with her red soles peeking beneath her perfectly fitted ball gown? The answer is most likely yes. However selfish she may have seemed with her funds she felt good and looked amazing. What’s the statement that comes to mind? Of course the age-old “it’s her day” came to my mind. Despite my opinions of the show, I loved that she picked a shoe that she could wear again and it still had wonderful memories attached.
Below are all shoes that can be rocked on and after your special day.
This is not a shoe selection for the traditional bride but picture this shoe as a little unexpected surprise underneath the bride’s gown. The colors are soft enough not to be in competition with the gown and can be coordinated to the bridesmaid’s dresses. I can visualize it all as the photographer snaps shot after shot.
Christian Louboutin “Meteorita” available at Net-A-Porter ($1,795)
This is for the bride that doesn’t mind showing a little leg in her gown. She struts down the aisle in a knee-length dress and lets her shoes tell the rest of the story as she dances the night away.
Oscar de la Renta metallic pump available at Net-a-Porter ($945)
Jimmy Choo “Lance” available at Jimmy Choo ($695).
This is for the bride that wants to play by the rules. It’s a traditional white shoe but with a tickle me later feather.
Badgley Mischka makes wonderful special occasion shoes. This is the “Ginne” available at Zappos ($245)
