There are a lot of shoes out there for brides-to-be, and while some ladies are lucky and have shoes already in their closet that they want to wear, lots want new shoes that they can wear for their wedding day and every special occasion after.
The shoes I found (and wore) on my wedding day were promptly dyed a dark grey and have been worn several times after - they are my "go to" special shoe! I love that whenever I wear them at someone's wedding and my sweetie and I are on the dance floor, I remember our wedding day and how much fun we had getting down all night long.
I know it's hard to spend money on something you will never wear again, but with shoes that is not how it has to be! You can choose some excellent retro-inspired shoes from a designer like the UK's Filippa Scott (which, by the way, are "dye-able"). They are super comfy and all have awesome padding built in:
Clockwise beginning upper left: (all shoes by Filippa Scott) Pearl, Jessica, Maggie, Celicia.
Visit Filippa at her new blog, Pip Pip and All That, or on Facebook to learn more about her! To buy her shoes, visit here.
Then there are some really fun shoes out there that are bridal but have enough sass and personality for almost any girl wanting a non-traditional shoe. These, from Palo Alto's Hey Lady, are pretty fierce!
Clockwise beginning upper left (all shoes from Hey Lady) At Tiffany's, Off The Market, Coco Puffs, Daddy's Girl.
You can visit Hey Lady on Facebook or on their site to learn more about them or to score your own pair.
