Top bridal shoe designer Aruna Seth knows just what it takes to create the perfect bridal shoes. Aruna, who just recently launched her brand new website, gives us her top tips for picking the perfect bridal shoes.
Comfort is key
A wedding day endures hours standing upright on your feet, from walking down the aisle, posing for photographs and first dance. Wedding shoes should be functional and practical helping you smile all day to your guests.
Ask yourself if you can walk in your shoes? Will your shoes be comfy all day? Practice walking in your shoes before the big-day to break them in.
Choose shoes you love
A need for feet to be ultra comfortable all day doesn’t mean jeopardising on style. Choose wedding shoes you’ll love and treasure for years to come. Unlike your wedding dress, if you pick the right shoe they can be worn again for further occasions. You want to feel beautiful and sexy on your wedding day, a good pair of shoes is the best pick-me-up even on a normal day.
Don’t fret over following fashion trends, if you pick a classic style they will stand the test of time in the wedding photo-album for years to come.

Shoes are as important as the wedding dress and many brides neglect giving shoes priority. Often brides focus purely on the wedding dress and leave shoes till last. Brides are left to make hasty rushed last minute decisions that may destroy the harmony of the dress.
Choose your shoes around the same time as your wedding dress, for one you’ll need to bring them to fittings because shoe heights determine the length of the dress.
Of course, I’d say shoes are the most important feature of the wedding because I love and design shoes. Matching shoes look neater and it’s better not to be disappointed if a designer is unable to supply you with a shoe you’ve fallen in love with due to a short-time frame.
Theme your shoes
Brides-to-be love to theme weddings so involve shoes in the theme too. Tonnes of brides call us to request our beautiful Farfalla butterfly shoes and brooches fitting in-line with their hearted butterfly themed weddings. If you have a flair for style and themes, make sure every single detail is flawless. Match your embellishments up, a sparkly dress, coloured jewels or pearl features can all find a beautiful shoe counterpart so feet match with the wedding theme.

Pick the right heel-height
Stiletto-loving brides may need to compromise on heel heights, consider if your husband will be embarrassed at the altar or wedding pictures if you are towering above him. Choose a heel height your comfortable with, if you normally wear kitten heels stay with this height, a sudden desire to start tottering around in six-inch heels just because it’s a special day may back-fire.
