Your wedding shoes can and should be an extension of your outfit on the big day - an amazing pair of shoes have the ability to transform the way you feel.
Bridal shoes don't need to be dull; instead they can be creative, imaginative and fun, adding a talking point to your look.
Before launching into our top picks, we thought a few preparation tips would be helpful to make sure you're able to wear your shoes all day and well into the evening.
Firstly, and as obvious as it seems, make sure you break your shoes in - wear them around the house before your big day. If your shoes are slightly tight or have a rubbing point then wear with a pair of socks to soften. Secondly, check the ball of the shoes for grip - if your shoes are completely smooth and shinny on the bottom then there is a risk you may slide in them. To prevent this, get a scouring pad and give them a quick rub to create a more uneven surface. It may seem sacrilege to scuff a new pair of shoes but it will be worth it to prevent any embarrassing falls. The one caveat to this is if you are lucky enough to have bought a pair of the red soled shoe of dreams (aka Louboutins) - I'm afraid that damaging those soles is out of the question so falling is just a risk you pay for having such a beautiful pair of shoes! Finally, if possible try to avoid synthetic materials and go for natural fibres such as leather or suedes. Unfortunately synthetic shoes are more likely to make your feet sweat, increasing the chances of rubbing and hence blisters. If you are a worried about this, then try and hide some talc powder in the bathroom for a dancing pit stop.
