Shoe Game: Comfort & Style

When dressing for your special day, your bridal look is not complete without the perfect pair of shoes. Sure, those sky-high Louboutins might be a stunning match with your gorgeous gown, but let’s face it, wearing towering heels for more than two hours straight can be tough on your toes, not to mention your heels, hips and back. Imagine spending more than six hours in them. For your wedding day, you likely will spend at least that much time on your feet, so it would be wise to choose shoes you can survive the day in. Don’t worry though, you do not, we repeat, DO NOT have to sacrifice style over comfort. You can have both, with these hot designs from top brands, and spend the day walking on air.

Hangisi Jewel Pump: Manolo Blahnik

Enduring bridal footwear fave Manolo Blahnik hits all the right notes with the Hangisi, featuring a classic silhouette, pretty pointed toe and sparkling buckle detail, which peeps out perfectly from beneath just about any wedding dress style.

Viola-Jimmy Choo Viola: Jimmy Choo

Not for shrinking violets or demure debs, Jimmy Choo’s glamorous Viola has it all–ostrich feathers, zippers and oodles of dazzling crystals…yet manages to look completely elegant rather than over-the top.

The ultimate in femininity, Christian L’s bow-accented Madame Menule, in off-white crepe satin, manages to balance “princess bride” with “fashion icon” flawlessly.

christianlouboutin-brodiriza1 Brodiriza: Christian Louboutin

For a wedding-day Louboutin with maximum opulence, you may want to opt for the spectacular Brodiriza, an exquisite half d’Orsay pump in ivory crepe satin, embellished in an ethereal handmade embroidery of sparkling clear and opaque crystals.

KAROLINA-Ivory-b521eb94-

Karolina Embellished Evening Shoe: Badgley Mischka

Soaring at 4-3/4 inches high, Badgley-Mischka’s Karolina is our hands-down favorite platform peep-toe right now. Why? Because it looks as good approaching as it does sashaying away (thanks to that gorgeous jeweled heel detail!), and because the sturdy covered platform lends support where we need it most. Happy shoe shopping, loves!

Selina-Sophia Webster1 Selina: Sophia Webster

Yes this knockout ivory sandal from Sophia Webster features a stunning embroidered swirl detail. And yes, it also boasts beaded embellishment and a stacked-bead heel we love. But our favorite thing about the whimsical Selina? Oh…that’d be the  and “Wifey for Lifey” message embedded on the soles of each perfect pair. Now that, love, is a bridal shoe!

This week, as all of us take shelter from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Houston bride Rozlind wanted her wedding to be a fabulous party that still had a warm, inviting feeling. From the black and white decor, to the all-white flowers, and romantic candlelit ballroom at Hotel ZaZa, Rozlind and Matthew’s wedding was the definition of modern glam. If you think all of this sounds glamorous, just wait till you see Rozlind’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe lace heels! Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!
