What your wedding shoes say about you!


Your gown may get all the attention, but the right footwear is your secret style weapon. Here, six styles and what they say about you.

1 “The royal wedding’s got nothing on my bash”

A pristine white ball gown, top-shelf champagne, and a grand hotel ballroom call for ‘something blue’ that’s as elegant as you are. Let a deep-hued pump with a hint of sparkle peek out from under your gown as you hit the floor for that well-rehearsed first waltz.

2 “We’re serving cake and cupcakes. And macarons”

Match the satin bow on your oh-so-sweet peep-toe shoes to the grosgrain ribbon around your bouquet or fluffy peonies. Then lose the shoes before joining the très preppy cocktail-hour croquet game.

3 “My mom vetoed the barefoot-on-the-beach thing”

After your surfside ceremony, take a break from bopping to reggae and sipping umbrella drinks to grab your groom for a walk by the water. A pair of bejewelled beauties will be so comfy, your arches won’t object!

4 “Signature cocktail? You must mean our artisanal martini list”

Mod architectural booties are right at home in a city loft filled with sculptural orchids and fashion-forward revellers. Just make sure not to scuff the white leather as you climb onto your getaway Vespa.

5 “I’m just not a stiletto kind of girl”

Whether you don’t love towering over your groom or heels simply slow you down on the dance floor, a fabulous pair of jewel-encrusted flats are a splurge your feet will thank you for, and they’re glam enough for even the dressiest ball gown.

5 “I’ve been doing a smoky eye since high school”

Graphic cut-out heels are begging to share real estate with an edgy tea-length dress and punchy bright lip. Do them justice with a first dance to your favourite ’80s girl-band jam.
