The Best Wedding Wedges For Your Big Day

Whoever said “Pain is beauty,” is really doing things the hard way. Sure, all of the primping, dieting, waxing, and more that women do on the regular but especially before the big day tests our patience and pain tolerance. However, not every aspect of your life has to suffer in order to pull it together for your wedding day. Amongst all of the struggles we women face to look beautiful there are little miracles along the way that not only make us look good but actually feel that way, too! What better way to be sure you look and feel amazing than by starting at the bottom- with your feet?

Wedge shoes have been a girl’s best friend ever since it was first invented. As much as I love a good wedge all year long, they are especially great for summer and for the bride willing to brave the great outdoors to say ‘I do’. And who could blame a bride really, wedding wedges are easy to walk in, much better than the tiny stiletto heels. Choosing to wear wedding shoes with a wedge enables you to glide down the aisle with ease, able to brave gravel, grass, sand, and more. Garden, beach, even backyard weddings are made perfect in wedges. When it comes to walking, dancing, or simply jumping for joy, a bride is better off in a gorgeous pair of wedge heels as her wedding shoes of choice. These, ladies, are the best options for your special day. Click on the images for an easy purchase!

How to Choose the Perfect Blue Wedding Shoes

 

 

blue-wedding-shoesWhile white wedding shoes have not lost their popularity, more and more brides are looking to expand their color palettes. Blue wedding shoes are becoming quite popular with brides who crave creativity and want to create a unique look on the big day.

Wedding Colors

Blue is one of the most popular wedding colors, and for good reasons. A large percentage of people say that blue is their favorite color, so it is only natural that brides would want to incorporate it into their ceremonies. Blue also coordinates well with other colors, so its inclusion in the wedding can be a smart move.

DANCE01.700.1

The Dance by Betsy Johnson is a beautifully designed shoe shows off with its simple round toe and low heel made in a sparkly fabric. The gentle scallops on the edges add subtle detail to an elegant shoe. The blue sole can be your ‘something blue’ for your walk down the aisle.

No matter what the reason, blue wedding shoes are becoming increasingly popular. That gives brides a real opportunity to break from traditional and choose the colors they love. If you have chosen blue as one of your wedding colors, you need to decide how to use that color for your wedding shoes. Some brides will wear traditional white shoes adorned with blue accents that match the wedding theme. Others will prefer blue wedding shoes in their chosen shade. As with everything else wedding related, the choice of shoes is a highly personal one.

 Color Swatches

A big part of choosing the perfect blue wedding shoes is getting the color just right. That will be impossible without a good set of color swatches from your wedding planner or dress designer. No matter who is planning your wedding, it is important to have the color information you need before you head out in search of the perfect shoes.

Egg Blue Light Blue Peacock Royal Blue Seafoam Teal

Looking for the perfect hue of blue to dye your wedding shoes? You can order a color swatch from My Glass Slipper.com.

Once you have the color swatches in hand, you can start seeking out the perfect shoes. If you have already ordered your gown, you may be able to get your blue wedding shoes from the same source. If not, it is important to start shopping early, since it may take some time to find blue wedding shoes that match both your color needs and personal taste and style.

Dye Your Own

In most cases you will be able to find the perfect shade of blue wedding shoes as long as you bring a color swatch with you when you shop. Even if the bridal shop does not have the perfect shade in stock, the owner may be able to order a pair of shoes that will perfectly match your wedding colors and look perfect on the big day.

JOY01.700.1[1]

This style is the Joy wedding shoe and it features a fashionably simple t-strap and an enclosed heel cap. The white or ivory fabric is beautiful in person and can be dyed any My Glass Slipper shade of blue.

 If your wedding colors are unusual or hard to match, however, it may be best to take a different approach. Whether you choose a stunning pair of high heels adorned with crystals or a more practical pair of flats, you can dye the shoes to your chosen shade of blue. Just start with a pure white pair of shoes and buy a dye kit in the shade you want. You can mix the dye, experiment until you have the perfect shade and then dye your special shoes to the perfect color.

A Guide to Choosing Cute Flat Wedding Shoes

While many brides still choose traditional high heels for the big day, a growing number of people are looking beyond those uncomfortable shoes and seeking out more practical alternatives. Flat wedding shoes are becoming increasingly popular with modern brides, and they are turning up in some very unexpected places.

Flat wedding shoes have a number of important advantages for busy brides. They are more comfortable, an important consideration for brides who will be on their feet from morning to night. Flat shoes are also versatile and easy to customize. Brides can use adornments and accessories to match their shoes to their wedding gowns and incorporate their wedding colors into their footwear. Whether you are planning a fun wedding ceremony at the beach or a formal party at the local country club, flat wedding shoes can be part of the celebration.

Casual or Formal?

No matter what type of wedding ceremony you are planning, you can find flat wedding shoes that will match the situation perfectly. You do need to think about the nature of the wedding before you go shopping, but the sky is the limit from there.

 

 

 

 

Consider the Venue

Outdoor weddings are becoming increasingly popular, and those outdoor venues often demand flat and comfortable wedding shoes instead of the traditional high heels. When choosing flat wedding shoes, it is important to think about the setting you have chosen for your wedding.

Becoming the Belle of the Ball With Badgely Mischka

 

history

Anyone who’s familiar and appreciative of fashion has likely heard of Badgley Mischka. The American designer house launched in 1988 after the two founders met in college. The bridal department, however, didn’t take center stage until 1993.

Badgley+Mischka+Bridal+Collection+8evtwxin-s0l BadgleyMischka001Often selling side by side major designers like Manolo Blahnik, Betsy Johnson, and Jimmy Choo; Badgley Mischka offers stunning designs at a reasonable price point when compared to several competitors.

 

 

 

 

Types

Badgley Mischka is primarily a dress shoe. As such, the most popular styles revolve around high heeled pumps, sandals, platforms, and wedges. The standard 2.5 – 5 inch heels are thick enough to feel secure while walking and come in closed toe, open toe, d’Orsay, and traditional pointed or rounded toe pump designs.

SWAN01.700.3[1]SWAN01.700.1[1]

The Swan by Badgley Mischka is everything a feminine bride wants on her wedding day. It is soft with the feather detail, girly with the faint pink color, and romantic with the pearl and beaded decoration!

Materials

Many of the designs emulate 1940’s glam and include adornments of lush fabric and sparkling brooch embellishments. 1/2 inch platform leather soles ease novices to designer heels into the heel height challenge. While sumptuous leather, satin and rich silks dress the shoes themselves.

GOODIE01.700.1[1]The dress shoe styles are labeled with adorable modern female names and range in design from sophisticated to sassy to sexy. While the shoes add a dazzling touch to any special event, weddings are where they truly shine. Several stunning designs are available for a bride’s special day, but the Goodie-ES is one of the top sellers from year to year. It’s a classic pump fashioned after true Hollywood glamour with a sparkling center gem above the open platform toe. The sturdy heel gives the star of the day 4 1/4 extra inches of height. Many bridal styles come in ivory, but can be dyed to your chosen wedding colors. But are they comfortable?

Badgely Mischka shoes tend to run small, so it’s important to try them on if possible to ensure the proper fit. Most of the time, ordering a full size larger than your normal size will do the trick. In the event of a wedding, you’ll be on your feet more than you’ll be off of them. Comfort is an issue. If heels are a requirement, an open toe design may help in that event. Once the proper fit is decided, these shoes often provide all day comfort. Shoe cushions and sole grips can help ensure the proper comfort levels for your event.
