You may have found your perfect wedding dress but what about the shoes? Here bridal shoe supremo Janye Bransby from Elegant Steps reveals which styles she’d pick for five fabulous gowns…
The dress Alfred Angelo
The shoes Honey by Pink at Paradox
This elegant satin court shoe with subtle jewelled frontage works beautifully with this sophisticated, strapless gown from Alfred Angelo. This shoe has also got the comfort factor – ideal if you’ve got a large venue or you’re planning to dance all night!
The dress Alexia Designs
The shoes Georgie Girl by Diane Hassall
We love these soft and delicate lace bridal shoes from Rainbow Club’s chief designer Diane Hassall. Georgie Girl is a cute court which complements this stunning vintage-inspired gown from Alexia Designs perfectly. The lace in the shoe echoes the lace in the neckline to give a co-ordinated look.
The dress Lillian West
The shoes Preston by Benjamin Adams
Smooth and stunning, Benjamin Adams’ Preston sandals are sexy and strappy and are perfect for this slinky, contemporary bridal look. Remember your shoes don’t have the match the colour of your dress exactly. In this case, you could pick up the gold in the shoes in your other accessories or perhaps in a hair piece.
The dress Naomi Neoh
The shoes Mimosa by Rachel Simpson
The pale peach version of this stunning vintage classic will have you skipping like Ginger Rogers across the dance floor on your special day. The retro look complements the floaty nature of this gown and the colour picks up on the subtly shaded underskirts. These shoes also come in mint and ivory, too!
The dress Mori Lee
The shoes Lydia by Rainbow Club
The sparkling lace on this peep-toe design looks amazing set against the soft organza of Mori Lee’s full-skirted princess gown. Heels always look better with princess dresses – they give you extra height so the dress hangs perfectly, creating the ultimate bridal silhouette.
