Wedding Shoes for Outdoor Weddings
You’re getting married–yay!! You’ve got the dress, and now you need to figure out the shoe situation. There are so many options, and you may want them all. 😉 If you’re going by the tradition — something borrowed, something new…. you can have your shoes be new and blue to check a couple of requirements off of your list. We’ve seen all kinds of fun shoes here from strappy little numbers to galoshes, and it’s so neat to see how they pair with the gorgeous dresses.
A couple of things to keep in mind when choosing your shoes if you are having an outdoor wedding… You’re going to be walking over different types of terrain. They will probably get a little dirty. Don’t wear heels if you aren’t used to walking in heels — no one wants a broken ankle on their wedding day. Be sure to try them on with the dress to see if you need to have the dress hemmed.
We recommend flats or kitten heels for the majority of our brides. If you’re going to go with heels, we suggest chunky heels. Thin heels and stilettos sink into the ground. If your heart is set on a thin heel, they make clear heel stoppers that will help you get around without sinking! Some brides will bring a pair of shoes to walk in and then slip into the fancy shoes when they get to the photo spot.
Don’t forget to remind your guests so they have an easy time getting around! At our location, they will be walking along a gravel road to get to the chapel area which is mulched.
