I’m admittedly a shoe hoarder. My friends tease me constantly but I don’t mind as it is quite true! When I see the bride before the wedding one of my first stops after a hello hug to the bride and meeting her family is the shoes and then yes, the dress! This year’s weddings have had some amazing shoes and the trend of colored wedding shoes that I saw starting a few years ago has not stopped! This year I have to even give huge kudos to a bride’s mom who was wearing some spicy shoes I truly envied.
Wedding shoes no longer are just the plain white they used to be. Color, sequins, rhinestones, heels, flats, even cowboy boots have made my bride’s lists! Sometimes they are a hidden surprise that really only the bride knows but other times in a shorter dress or tea length wedding dress they be total show stoppers for guests. One bride even taught me about Milk and Honey Shoes where you can totally design your own shoes. Unbelievable! You design everything from the heel height to color to texture and straps.
I love California weddings and truly San Francisco weddings. We have some amazing and unique people here and this truly shows through to their weddings. Don’t be afraid to try something you normally wouldn’t wear and don’t be afraid to have a few pairs! You think the bride in the bright green McQueen shoes wore them all day? Absolutely not! She had another pair for walking on the grass and dancing later. After all a girl can never have too many shoes and wedding shoes too!
