Stepping Out in Sparkly Wedding Shoes May 15, 2018
Well, we love bringing sparkle to weddings and we also adore seeing sparkle in the most unlikely places. Today, we’re getting all excited about our current favourite wedding detail – sparkling wedding shoes. Oh yes, this is an indulgent look that’s just perfect for stylish brides everywhere. Whether you love all-out glitter or a more sparing sparkle, you’re going to fall for these wonderful wedding shoes. In fact, the only tricky thing would be to decide on the one pair that you want to wear…

Sparkling wedding shoes are everywhere right now and with good reason. They bring a real touch of glamour to every kind of wedding dress and, when they’re seen peeping from beneath a gorgeous skirt, they always attract attention. Similarly, sparkling shoes really elevate a short wedding dress or make a high street gown even more special. So, whatever gown you’ve chosen, there will be a sparkling style to suit your perfectly.
So, why have sparkling shoes become so popular? Well, if you’re looking to really splash out on your wedding shoes and perhaps opt for a designer pair, why not choose a style that you know you’ll be able to wear again? Fabulous Louboutins or Jimmy Choos are a super special addition to your wedding day ensemble and you know that you’ll be able to wear a glamorous style time and time again after your wedding. Wedding shoe designers such as Charlotte Mills include lots of sparkling design in their collections – we love her glittery block heel shoes!
If you love the thought of sparkling shoes, what do you need to think about? Well, it’s important to think about the finish of the shoe and the material of your skirt. Shoes with jewels or a rougher glitter finish could possibly snag or catch on a delicate skirt. It’s also crucial that you’ve bought your shoes before your dress fitting. This will allow your seamstress to alter the hem of your gown so that it sits perfect above your shoes and that your guests will be able to see just enough of your amazing shoes.

Sparkling shoes are also a great idea if you’d prefer to wear bridal flats rather than heels on your big day. Again, this glittery look will bring a really fabulous touch to your ensemble and there are plenty of fantastic styles to choose from. Sparkly flats are perfect for beach, countryside or woodland weddings where heels might not be such a great idea.
Of course, you don’t have to splash out on designer shoes. At this time of year (and again near Christmas), high street stores always have a wide range of sparkling styles to choose from and this is a great way of keeping on budget. It’s also really easy to buy a few pairs and spend a little time at home choosing the perfect pair for you before returning those you don’t want. If you plan ahead, you might even be able to pick up a pair or two in the sales.
Finally, whatever style you choose, don’t forget to break your wedding shoes in carefully. Wedding days are long days and there’s nothing worse than being uncomfortable or having your shoes rub blisters. Wear your shoes around the house for a while and even rough up the soles a little with sandpaper so that you’ve got a bit more grip on the big day.
Sparkling wedding shoes really are a fabulous addition to your wedding day look and whether you choose a glittery or bejewelled pair, just avoid the temptation to spend too much time looking at your feet on the big day!
