Ladies love their shoes. As Carrie Bradshaw would say, “The higher the heel, the better you feel.” When it comes to bridal shoes, most women think the opposite. I’ve noticed flats becoming more and more popular among brides, and it’s no wonder why. You’re on your feet all day and the dance floor all night. But I agree with Carrie that a heel does something for a woman’s stature and style. If you don’t want to compromise this confidence, consider wedding wedges. Here are my five favorite designs we carry at the Wedding Shoppe.
Wedding Wedges: The top 5 styles and why you’ll love them.
1. TOMS Grosgrain Wedges
I was so excited when we picked up the TOMS Bridal Collection
. They’re comfortable and easy to wear again after the big day. We carry them in ivory and petal, and the lining is TOMS classic blue (Your ‘something blue,’ perhaps?). The fabric is durable and has a luxurious sheen, and the suede insole is cushioned for comfort. With a heel height of 3 ¼” you’ll get the lift you’re looking for, but won’t have to take them off in an hour. The “One for One” campaign still applies when you purchase from us! These wedges are only available in-store, but they're a great excuse to stop in!
2. Etta Dyeables
This satin option from Dyeables looks comfortable, doesn’t it? The 3” heel and ankle strap will create a supportive and classic style. They’ll go with any gown, too! Since you can dye them almost any color, you get to create your dream shoe! These qualities along with the touch of glitz make Etta a fabulous choice.
3. Frosting from Pink by Paradox London
Kitten heels are cute and easy to wear, but a kitten wedge is even better. Frosting is a satin shoe with a flattering peep toe, making them great for any season. The pearl and crystal accents add a touch of flare without distracting from your dress. The built-in heel comfort pad makes this wedge irresistible.
4. Arlene Touch Ups
Strappy and stylish, this look is for the glamorous bride-to-be. I love the flattering line of rhinestone rings down the center, as well as the faux leather straps of these vegan shoes. Arlene wedges
would be a chic option for you or your ‘maids. At $68, they’re affordable too! Get them in gold or silver.
5. Emma Nina Wedding Shoes
Charming, don’t you think? Sometimes ribbon is a bit much, but the satin bow and crystal ankle strap add just enough flair. Its 4” heel will give you plenty of height, but the strap will keep you supported. Emma is a bridal shoe
with beautiful potential.
