You picked out your wedding dress? Now what? Think about getting a pair of heels that is both beautiful and comfortable. We have seen a lot of brides debate between whether they want to go for the best look or the most comfortable pair.
Rule of Thumb:
1. Wedges are always better than skinny heels.
2. Heels with platform are more comfortable.
3. Get gel pads if your heels are not perfectly padded.
4. Bring enough bandage for the day.
5. Practice in your shoes a few times before the wedding day on the carpet. (You obviously do not want to scratch the bottom, especially when you have a pair of Louboutins)
We have listed the top 10 brands that our brides often choose, we recommend you try them on in the store instead of ordering them online.
Manolo Blahnik: For a JINZA dress, it always works to choose their signature satin and crystals covered shoes that match with your dress color. Timeless and Elegant. Comfort Level: 9
2. Badgley Mischka
For more affordable and reasonable price, Badgley Mischka has tons of options for wedding shoes. We would recommend you get gel padding to try on with your BM shoes. Comfort Level: 8
3. Jimmy Choo
From the dramatic “Cinderella” to a pale pink leather, Jimmy Choo has been a forever love for wedding shoes. They are not necessary the most comfortable pair, but you will not able to take your eyes off their shoes, because they are just simple beautiful. It’s a romantic brand for all the girls. Comfort Level: 6
An expression of Feminism. A bold red with crystals. Elegant and sexy! Comfort Level: 5
5. Charlotte Olympia
CO is definitely for an edgy bride with a lot of unique personality. CO shoes are famous for their comfortable gold platform with bold color and vivid patterns. It’s definitely for a non-traditional bride. One of our favorites. Comfort Level: 9
Probably not every bride knows of this brand for wedding shoes, but the designer makes very light-weight and comfortable shoes. His shoes have a lot of cultural inspiration on both colors and designs. It’s very interesting and always fashion forward. The pattern will hold your feet very well, so it’s very comfortable to wear for a long time. Comfort Level: 8
7. Alexander Mcqueen
When discussing fashion forward and edgy, his shoes are always there. If you are looking for something vintage like art, or something totally non-traditional, you might love his shoes. Comfort Level: 7
You can never go wrong with Valentino for wedding shoes. It’s feminine, comfortable and classic. It could match every venue and occasion. Comfort Level: 8
9. Gianvito Rossi
Again, GR is not famous for his wedding shoes collection, but with the right color and fabric, (probably not his signature suede pump), it will give you a beautiful and present day. Comfort Level: 9
It took me a while to think who I shall name on this list. It has to be Prada. It’s comfortable to wear for the minimal and elegant look. Comfort Level: 7
