Top 5 ‘Something Blue’ Wedding Shoes

Wedding Traditions

Most brides seem to enjoy embracing wedding traditions and rituals in some form, even if their weddings are anything but traditional! Something old, new, borrowed and blue can become quite a mission for some brides but it also adds to the fun of preparing for the big day. Going along with the rhyme is said to bring good luck on the wedding day and who doesn’t want that!

The ‘old’, ‘new’ and ‘borrowed’ part is generally pretty easy, new dress, old pair of earrings and a borrowed piece of jewellery from a family member… tick, tick, tick all done! But the ‘Something blue’ can be a bit more challenging.

Several wedding dress companies add a tiny blue ribbon bow somewhere inside the dress, or then there is the lace garter which can include a little bit of blue, and of course you could add a subtle tinge of bluey lilac into your bridal bouquet………..the options are endless really, but what will you choose?

Not a traditionalist?

Want to go along with the tradition without being too traditional? Then here is the answer! Shoes!

Yes blue wedding shoes, ok so I may not be the first person to suggest shoes for your Something Blue, but I’m not talking the kind you want to hide away so nobody sees, I’m talking shoes you want to shout about! From powder blue suede to navy velvet, embellished to bespoke, we are talking super gorgeous here!

There are lots of beautiful blue shoes out there that will look stunning with your wedding dress and just as cool with your skinny jeans afterwards, so it’s a win win! Personally, I think it’s worth investing in a pair of heels that you truly love and will want to wear again and again, whether they’re flats or sky high heels choose a pair that make your heart sing and say something about you.

Shoes that make you say oooh!

There’s something really lovely about seeing a bride, shortly after the ceremony lift up the hem of her dress to show her girlfriends those stunning heels she’s been keeping secret for months, and enjoying all the oohs and aaaahs. So listen to your inner style queen, be daring and put your best (blue) foot forward!
