With the craziness of wedding planning, shopping for your pre-wedding celebration attire often become a last-minute mad dash to find something festive. Don’t give your bridal shower look short shrift… often, that’s where the best memories are made! Whether the celebration is a girls-only canapes-and-bubbly soiree at a charming chateau, a swanky downtown hotel bar welcome party, or a rehearsal dinner at a top Houston restaurant, here are three fail-safe bridal shower and pre-wedding party outfit ideas for 2019.
We’ve got a thing about shoes. In particular, high heels. And most especially, sleek, chic, super-sophisticated, high-heeled bridal pumps, peep-toes and sandals that bring the bling…and a whole lot more. Craving a little footwear drama for your big day? Behold our current faves on the ultra-luxe bridal footwear scene. And be seen.
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
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.
Madame Menule: Christian Louboutin
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.
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 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 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!
Put your best bridal foot forward with these fun floral wedding shoes. Whether for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner or your wedding day itself, these flirty bridal heels from top designers will have you walking in style throughout all your bridal festivities.
This romantic ankle strap sandal is the perfect something blue.
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.
The soft wide band on this suede sandal will hold your foot in place without feeling constricting.
