Shoe Edition: Splurge vs. Steal

You’ve got your man, you’ve got the ring, you’ve got the gown, now all you need is the SHOES! While we love our Manolos and Jimmy Choos as much as the next to-be-wed gal, we also know it can be hard to justify a pair of pumps that costs as much as your venue rental. Well, we’ve got some good news for our fashionable bride on a budget. Check out or favorite designer bridal shoes paired with their much more affordable doppelgangers…then decide for yourself if it’s time to spend or save (and still look fabulous, natch).

HWB Hearts: Treats for Wedding Feet!

Weddings, especially destination weddings, can be tough on a gal’s tootsies. The sand, the sea, the verdant lawns, all that walking back and forth from cabana to pool…all that DANCING. Allow us to offer a little something sweet for your weary feet (and other assorted parts). We’re especially loving the new SoleMates Outdoor Essentials kit, which features a pair of the brand’s awesome High Heeler heel tips, along with sunscreen, aloe gel and dainty little natural insect repellent towelettes. Aww… And of course, we eternally adore Oprah favorite FootzyRolls, especially in those cute shimmery metallics, and Flexflops equally practical foldable flip-flops. Any one of these would make a great in-room gift for your wedding-bound bridesmaids or best gals. Dontcha think?

HWB Adores: Jewel-Heeled Wedding Shoes

We all know how ya’ll love your bling. And we’re right there with you, Houston brides. But here’s the thing: Sometimes just a touch of sparkle, in the exact right spot, delivers more dazzle than a truckload of diamonds.

Though we’d let that truck park in our driveway any ol’ day. Just sayin’.

Today’s object of our affection: jewel-heeled shoes. Because they’re so darn pretty. Because they were made for celebrating. Because they’re exactly what the well-heeled bride needs to complete her perfect wedding-day ensemble.
