Your shoes are a fabulous finishing touch to your outfit. On your wedding day, the shoes you choose are even more important because they need to be comfortable and look perfect with your wedding dress. Happily, there’s a huge selection of beautiful wedding shoes available to suit all budgets so if you’re about to shop for shoes, our guide to the names to know is just what you need.
High Street Wedding Shoes
There’s plenty of choice on the high street and lots of department stores and specialist shoe retailers showcase more wedding shoes over the summer months. John Lewis has a fabulous range including designs from wedding specialist Rainbow Club as well as their own traditional wedding shoes. They also have shoes from brands such as Ted Baker, Karen Millen and Kurt Geiger that would be excellent alternatives to ivory shoes.
Debenhams is another retailer to visit. Their own Debut range has a great selection of wedding shoes and Debenhams also stocks No.1 by Jenny Packham. Now you just know they will be beautifully stylish wedding shoes!
If you’re looking gorgeous wedding shoes on the high street that don’t come with a huge designer price tag, then why not just visit your favourite retailers? Dune, Jones The Bootmaker and Office all have a wide selection of on-trend styles that are perfect for bringing colour or sparkle to your outfit at a reasonable cost. These are also shoes that you can wear on your honeymoon or after the big day.
Designer Wedding Shoes
The UK is blessed with some super talented wedding shoe designers. So, if you’re looking for something really special or if your budget is a little larger, there are definitely a few names to check out.
Emmy London really has the most exquisite range of vintage inspired shoes. They’re delightfully embellished and made some really high quality materials. Charlotte Mills is another name to know and her designs have a much more contemporary feel. These designer wedding shoes include glitter block heels, large heart-shaped decorations and bold embellishments. All Charlotte Mills wedding shoes come with a silver sixpence set into the sole for good luck!
Rachel Simpson’s collections of wedding shoes are well known for being elegant and super soft. Again, they’re vintage inspired and come in a fantastic range of colours to suit any wedding. Harriet Wilde and Freya Rose also have to get a mention here. We love Harriet Wilde’s signature floral embellishments and her laser-cut designs are just amazing. Freya Rose shoes are made with Chantilly lace and those Mother of Pearl heels – wow!
Wedding Shoes To Wear Again
Of course, lots of brides use their wedding as an excuse to treat themselves to a pair of amazing shoes that they’ve been lusting after for a long time. Valentino Rockstuds, Louboutins with those unmissable red soles or iconic Jimmy Choo heels are all perfect for weddings and, if you think you might just wear them again, then they’re a great investment!
