Carrie Bradshaw, fashion icon of the world wore a wonderful pair of Manolo Blahniks to her wedding with Mr. Big in Sex and the City. Yes, they were heels and no one can deny how beautiful and elegant they were making the shoe wearer feel sexy and confident.
However……What if you never wear heels, what if you can’t physically wear them or you are taller than your groom or heels just don’t fit in with your ‘wedding genre’? Who says you have to wear heels at all!? You can still feel as amazing in flat shoes. Flat wedding shoes are trending and the comfort they provide is complimented with playfulness and gorgeous style.
Matching Your Wedding Setting
Flat wedding shoes suit some wedding venues more than others. Dainty sparkly sandals or fun and funky flip flops would be more suited to a beach wedding. Or take a country setting, meadow or forest then you might consider wedding wellies (yes they do exist!) or some graceful ballerina shoes or preppy pumps.
Styling you and your shoe
It is quite possible that you are such a laid back and chilled out bride or couple that a pair of hip converse or bridal trainers (as worn in Father of the Bride) could be exactly what you are looking for! Or you may just opt for flat shoes for simply the comfort element ensuring you are not crippled before your first dance.
Cute and adorable detailed flats would be admired most in a t-length or short dress or simply a dress that doesn’t fully hit the ground. If you absolutely insist on wearing a pair of heels, have some flats on standby for when the pain just gets too much!
