With personalization becoming a key ingredient in today’s wedding planning stew, an onslaught of brides have started leaning more towards “trend” and less towards “tradition.” This growing community of soon-to-be-newlywed women yawn at the “Brides of Yore,” happily taking their place as the Brides of We-Want-More. And with all the possibilities neatly lined up online, it’s easy to see why today’s bride – looking to tailor a one of a kind wedding - is in full bloom!
One area that has really started to blossom is the notion of colored bridal shoes… because let’s face it, GIRLS.LOVE.SHOES. It’s in our blood. You show me a girl who isn’t totally envious of Carrie Bradshaw’s closet (Blasphemy!), and I’ll show you a girl who simply hasn’t found her way. As a former / recovered shoe underestimate-er, I can vouch that in due time and with the right pair of killer pumps, all girls will eventually give in to their baser instincts and fall in love with “sole” power.
Brides - who have fallen victim to such power – tend to wear shoes that reiterate their personal style in a number of ways. Since the majority of “I do” gurus incorporate color into their wedding, many white or ivory clad brides use their shoes as a means to incorporate themselves into the color. With today’s popular wedding colors spanning from Tiffany’s blues and candy apple greens to hot magentas and dazzling reds, the bridal shoe can easily become a stand out accessory. Not to mention, it’s a fabulous way to spice up the “something blue” tradition in your attire.
But no matter what your preference may be, never underestimate the power of a great shoe! Whether they’re white, gold, green, red, silver or orange, just make sure your shoes are fierce! I suggest taking a gander at online stores such as Shoes.com and Zappos who make finding tootsie toppers fast and easy by narrowing down details to find a match. Enjoy!
