If the Shoe Fits: Finding the Right Wedding Shoes for You

Carl Jung may have been speaking metaphorically, but boy, did he ever hit the nail on the head when it comes to picking out your wedding shoes. For some brides, fashion is paramount, and designer shoes are a must. Brides with a different take on fashion make their way down the aisle in their Chuck Taylors. Bridal shoes are a big deal these days--and the options are more vast than ever.

Pumps are the classic choice, and looks can be anything but plain. Brides can opt for a traditional closed-toe pump, or select a flirty peep-toe. All manner of clip-on embellishments are available everywhere  from bridal shops to Etsy, and include everything from rhinestones to flowers. If pumps aren't your style, strappy sandals are another elegant, and popular option. Wedge-heeled sandals continue to be popular, and are increasingly available in wedding-worthy styles.

High heels aren't the only way to achieve glamour in your wedding footwear, though. Kitten heels provide style and a little elevation without sacrificing comfort. If that's still too high, flats are a comfortable and increasingly fashionable choice. For the last several years, ballet slippers have been popular. While they continue to be, an emerging trend is the smoking slipper. Because flats tend to look less dressy than heels, make sure yours are either beautifully embellished (say, with rhinestones) or made of a dressy material like silk or satin to be sure they match the style of your dress.

Your bridal shoes can be a subtle and surprising way to wear your "something blue." Consider a pale blue silk shantung slingback pump, or shoe clips with blue faux gemstones in shades from aquamarine to sapphire.

No matter how joyful, wedding days are long, and bridal feet are often aching at the end of them. For that reason, many brides choose a stunning shoe for the ceremony (and pictures), and something considerably more comfortable for the limo ride and reception.  Devotees of Crocs have been known to wear them even to their weddings, and Uggs recently came out with wedding styles encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Fashionistas may be horrified by such choices, but you may be too comfortable to care.

Whatever shoes you choose for your walk down a Connecticut aisle, make sure they reflect your personal style, pair well with your dress, and leave you with a smile on your face.
