Something Different Wedding Shoes

Most women love shoes and for shoeaholics everywhere shopping for your wedding shoes should be almost as important as shopping for your dress. With photographers becoming more creative - there are plenty of opportunities to showcase your shoes! Dyeable satin fabrics and statement colourful shoes means that your shoes can be worn again and again after your big day.

Now for the boring practical part of this post; think about the environment that you will be in and the length of time that you will be on your feet during the day. If you plan on dancing the night away until the early hours then it may be wise to buy a pair of flats too that you can swap into half way through the night. If you will spending most of your time walking around a grass field at your farm themed wedding then maybe avoid stilettos - or if you fall in love with the definitely consider investing in some Starlettos.

My main suggestion would be to have some fun when choosing your wedding shoes - choose something that captures your personality and the theme of the day. There are lots of options out there for you so get scrapping, get on Pinterest and let the ideas flow! Most importantly make sure that you buy your shoes in time so that you can take them to your wedding dress fitting.

If you are wanting the designer look wedding shoe without the designer price tag then take a look at the No1 by Jenny Packham range at Debenhams. The range has a number of shoes with vintage style embellishments, luxurious fabrics and differing heel heights. Below are a couple of my favourite options.
These are the gorgeous Luella jewel bow sandals from No1. by Jenny Packham. I think they look exquisite. They are available from Debenhams and retail at £95 a pair.

Another pair of shoes from this collection that I love are the Designer ivory lace and jewel trim ballet pumps. If you are looking for a flat shoe that still has that bridal elegance then this may be a good choice for you. These shoes are also available from Debenhams and retail at £59 a pair.
