Twinkle Toes Wedding Shoes from John Lewis

Wedding Shoes from John LewisAfter months spent searching for your dream wedding dress, now comes the time to begin your quest for the perfect bridal shoe… There is a lot consider – colour matching your dress, fabric choices (satin, crepe and silk satin are always popular) and heel height!

You will also need to make sure you have your shoes ready for the first fitting of your wedding dress in case alterations are needed.

All of this undeniably puts pressure on you, and choosing the style of shoe can be equally difficult as you decide whether to opt for sandals, mules, full shoe, closed toe, boots, ballet or platforms. Heel heights can also vary from flat to 4 ½ “.

It is important that you choose a style and heel height you feel comfortable wearing all day and evening, if you don’t normally wear a 4” heel, then think twice about choosing it for a long wedding day when you’ll be doing plenty of walking and standing as you pose for photographs! Wedding days are not the days to experiment with heel height, and whatever shoes you buy it is a good idea to ‘break them in’ a few days before your wedding by wearing them around the house!

At Aspirational Bride we love the collection of wedding shoes from John Lewis (including some from our good friends at Rainbow Club), a gorgeous selection of shoes which offer good support, flexibility of movement and comfort…

John Lewis have lovely flats and pumps,  great for comfort and practicality. Flats are also a good choice for an outdoor or beach wedding, as you don’t have to worry too much about your heels sinking in the ground/sand! We love these Rainbow Club Bea Pumps (left) and Rainbow Club Honey Pumps (right) from John Lewis…

If  you want something a little higher, then you could opt for the most popular heel height for wedding shoes which is mid height ‘kitten heels’. They offer height combined with comfort, and because they are generally between 2 to 3 inches, they also offer a good degree of stability. These designs are Rainbow Club Tanya Diamanté Court Shoes (left) and Rainbow Club Suzi Satin Kitten Heels (right)…

Wedding shoes can be plain and understated or they can come with all sorts of embellishments and added detail. If you have decided you don’t want to opt for a plain wedding shoe then you can find ones with crystals, bows, pearls and much more to complete your look… These embellishments can either be a subtle finish to the shoe, for example a bow with diamante detail or they can be the main feature of the shoe, such as a platform healed shoe with the heal completely covered in glistening Swarovski crystals!

These two designs from John Lewis are perfect, one right on-trend with gorgeous lace detail (left) and the other Rainbow Club Christy Satin Glitter Platform Court Shoes adds a stunning touch of glamour…
