The Perfect Bridal Shoe, Reinventing the Glass Slipper

Reinventing the Glass Slipper
By Anna Lombardos

From Cinderella’s glass slipper to Louboutin’s red sole, the bridal shoe has come to be synonymous to dreamy delights treasured by women all over the world; it’s not only a requisite part of a dress code but also a treat that is enjoyable to shop for. Shoes are an important accessory; therefore, selecting that ideal pair for your wedding day is one of the most exquisitely pleasurable things to do before the special day.

With posture, poise and pizzazz, the right pair of shoes will add spring to your step. Whether your wedding gown is a princess-style frock designed with multiple layers of tulle, a long graceful sheath or a fun mini dress “a la mode,” your choice of footwear will have an effect on the way the dress looks on you.

Imagine that walk down the aisle, feel the soles of your feet as you take a stroll at the park for your pictures, as dance the night away with your guests. The beauty and relevance of the entire ensemble is enveloped in the preference of your shoes and the overall fit of the ensemble. If you are a traditional bride, the white satin pump may be just the thing for you. Offering a great deal of flexibility, this option has been around for ages; you can dye it, change it up, glue specks of rhinestones and beads or add a vintage flower. Satin or fabric shoes come in several designs: the open-toed sandal, the peep-toe or slingbacks. They are classic, timeless and an inexpensive solution to a swanky treat.
