What to look for in silver wedding shoes
Now that you’ve got your mind on the silver shoes, it’s time to review the details before clicking “add to cart”. Most importantly, comfort is key. Make sure that the shoes you choose are not only the best for the landscape of your site (indoor and outdoor) that you will be walking on, but also for your personal tolerance. We know, we know, those four inch stilettos are gorgeous. But, if you’ve never felt comfortable in them, now is not the time to give these shoes another chance. It’s your wedding day after all, and the last thing you want to focus on is the pulsating feeling in your feet. If you are really in love with a pair you’ll know you won’t be able to wear all day, make sure you have a backup pair you can throw on during cocktail hour and reception. Finally, take a look at a range of silver options and compare the hue to your other accessories. Although most silver tones are visually the same, some silvers may appear more metallic, shiny, dark or light than others. You’ll want to make sure the silver tone complements your dress and accessories as perfectly as possible.
Some brides prefer sky-high stilettos while others opt for simple sneakers. Whatever you decide, be sure to consider the type of landscape you will be walking on.
Although silver shoes complement most wedding dresses, consider whether your dress displays warmer golden hues or cool silver tones. If you’re using silver in your celebration (or wearing silver accessories), silver shoes are a great way to add some sparkle to your wedding attire.
Depending on the style and designer, the cost can vary greatly. Luckily, there are plenty of options at all price points, so rest assured you can switch to cash without hurting your credit score.
