Confused about what shoes to wear with your Mother of the Bride Gown?
This video shows you how to put your best foot forward.
Deborah: Choose a shoe that is comfortable, that complements, and that completes your Mother of the Bride dress.
Don’t torture yourself in too high of a heel. It’s a long day, and there’s nothing worse than feeling cranky because your feet are in pain. Other things to remember:
Tip # 1: Choose a Feminine Shoe
A wedding is a gala affair so no heavy, clunky shoes that weigh you down and belong at the ofﬁce. This kind of affair calls for an evening shoe that is lightweight, reﬁned, has a slender heel and is above all, pretty.
Tip# 2: Don’t Worry About Perfectly Matching Your Shoes & Evening Purse to Your Dress
This was popular 20 years ago but today matchy – matchy can look can be very boring and will date your outﬁt and age you. Also, dyeable shoes are not water resistant, and they can bleed if your feet get sweaty, or you spill a drink on them. Instead, choose a shoe color that co-ordinates with, not matches your dress. Neutrals shades work best, and this includes metallics like gold and silver that are often the perfect choice.
Tip # 3: Make Sure Your Shoes Are Comfortable
Slip-ons can work, but don’t forget to add a heel pad, so your foot doesn’t slide around in the shoe if you are wearing nylons. Also, be careful of shoes with too many straps. Thin straps are notorious for digging and cutting into your foot and don’t provide much support making it easy for you to slide off your shoe.
