Bridal Shoe Ideas

I have had so many friends get married lately. As a shoe lover I  thought it my duty to post a selection of bridal shoes (even if I, my self am nowhere near a bride).I researched on a ton of options and found so many beautfufl ones that I think I even want to wear these pairs on a normal basis!

I have come up with three categories : The Traditional, Formal Comfort and Non-Traditional. Each bride is different and have different ideas and notions on what shoes to wear on their special day so I hope any of these choices will appeal to every kind of bride out there! Check them all out after the jump!


These pairs are the ones that follow the usual color palette of a bride. Mainly whites and nudes in stains and embellishments. A lot of beautiful Badgley Mischka shoes (they have some of the best bridal and evening wear shoes) and also pairs by Nina and Betsey Johnson.

Formal Comfort

Like I said, each bride is different. I know some who would love to wear the highest heel possible, but I also know some who want to be comfortable during their wedding day. There are several pairs out there that are comfortable and still beautiful and "bride-like looking". These pairs are in the form of flow heels, wedges and low wedges like this pair by Nina below.

By non-traditional, I mean pairs that are not in the usual bridal colors ad styles. These pairs are the hot pinks and electric blues. Remember Carrie Bradshaw's blue Manolos in the first Sex and the City movie? I think a lot of brides these days are representing their "Something Blue" in their shoes! I personally think that having a bright pop of color by way of the shoe is a great idea! Any of these shoes would look amazing with a white bridal dress or even a champagne one!

Sexy Stiletto Saturdays : Oscar Tiye

The two circles found at the back of this shoe really reminds me of Mickey Mouse. Don't you guys think so? It's pretty cute actually! Other than that, this pair is actually a really very sexy pair of stilettos. It has a gorgeous black satin texture, dainty straps and a beautiful high stiletto heel. What do you guys think?

Olgana Paris Dahlia Suede Ankle Wrap Sandal

I've mentioned several times here just how much I am loving the low block heel. I've featured the style several times and even my own shoe line Sala Chaussures have made several versions of it. I am very much partial to the more feminine and dainty versions and I love that other designers are coming out with so many pretty styles like these ones from Olgana Paris. I love the gorgeous blush color plus the flower embellishment adds just the right element of femininity and the dangling leaves on the ankle straps finishes up the whole shoe perfectly. What do you guys think of this Pair?

Sergio Rossi Velvet Beaded Heel D'orsay Pump

Opulent and decadent are two words I would use to describe this pair from Sergio Rossi. It features gorgeous deep purple velvet uppers with the back part and block heel covered almost entirely in beads. Even with all those factors, I still think this pair is extremely wearable, I would totally wear these with jeans and a white shirt!! It  is such a gorgeous pair! What do you guys think?
