The search for the perfect wedding shoes, even when you’ve narrowed it down to ivory wedding shoes, is still a long and difficult one. So, I thought I would put together a tip to help every bride narrow down that search.
Tip 1: First, determine your heel height. Now that you’ve picked the color ivory for your shoe, think about what heel height you want your shoe to be at. This is important, especially if your fiancé is taller or shorter. Buying heels that are too tall or too short could make you look unbalanced. Also, don’t forget, heels that are too high will be very uncomfortable throughout the night. So, think through all of these considerations before choosing the heel height. Also, choose a range for those ivory shoes so you can look for 2 inch to 2 and a half inch ivory shoes.
Tip 2: Get a swatch of your dress. Ivory comes in a lot of different shades and there are some dresses that are a darker ivory while some are a much lighter ivory shade. You want your ivory bridal shoes to be either the same shade or a bit darker than your dress. A lighter ivory shoe will stand out too much against the dress and will give the glow in the dark effect that you don’t want. You want your wedding shoes to blend in with your outfit and not to stand out too brightly against the ivory dress.
Tip 3: Search early and look everywhere. There are great bargains to be found for ivory wedding shoes, as long as you look early and look everywhere. Look in department stores and look online. One thing that I found during my shoe shopping was that ivory bridal shoes are more likely found in online bridal shoe stores. It was much harder to go to a regular store and find particular shades of ivory since that color is so specialized. You can also ask salespeople for cream or beige which can be very close to the ivory color you are looking for.
Tip 4: Order multiple pairs and see which one matches. There are so many different styles of shoes. You could get ivory wedge shoes, flat ivory shoes, ivory ballet slippers, and even an extra pair of ivory flip flops.
Determine what type of shoe you want or order multiple pairs and then take them to your dress fitting to see what you like. Only after you put them on with your dress will you know if they match. With your dress on, you’ll be able to get the full effect of your outfit with your bridal shoes.
Tip 5: Check for comfort: Finally, after receiving your ivory bridal shoes, check them all to see which pair are the most comfortable. Don’t just look for something that is beautiful. Those beautiful shoes could end up hurting your feet towards the end of the night. Or, if you want those beautiful ivory shoes and they are not as comfortable, then order a pair of wedding flip flops to match your ivory wedding shoes.
