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.

It’s not often that Houston gets to launch a famed Indian design house—especially in such grand style. But grand style is par for the course for Sameera Faridi of Sameera Faridi Design Studio at Poshak Fashion & Style, which turned out top New-Delhi-based designers Parvesh Jai, who have been outfitting Bollywood gorgeously for the better part of nearly 10 years. Faridi, whose eponymous atelier has enabled Houston brides of South Asian backgrounds to find spectacular custom wedding and special-occasion wear sans overseas travel, feted Parvesh Jai with “The Royal Saga”—a riveting fashion show celebrating 100 years of Bollywood style, held at the Houston Motor Club, followed by a VIP reception attended by local trend-setters and fashion media.
