The Bolder The Better

To kick off the weekend (pun intended), we want to give you some alternatives to the typical white wedding shoe. The 2012 season has been showcasing exspressive designs, colors, jewels, and accents that will give you an extra pop of glamour as you make your way down the aisle. To quote the late Marilyn Monroe, “give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the world.” Let us show you some trends and designers that are making a bold statement.


Colorful shoes can add an extra element to your ensemble and are unexpected with a white dress. Be sure though to not choose a color that will conflict or compete with your overall color scheme.

 Animal Print

Moving into fall/winter season, animal prints are a classic that will never go out of style. It is a timeless print that will carry on way past your wedding day.

If you’re feeling like the previous options were too bold, you can also look for shoes with texture. We’re loving cork and wood for spring/summer 2012 and as we move into fall/winter look for velvet or suede options.

Jeweled Accents

This trend is easy and used with a wide range of styles, textures, and heel heights. It is also subtle but makes a beautiful accent to your outfit.

Good luck in your search for shoes and remember that just because it’s a wedding shoe doesn’t mean it has to be white. These may become your favorite pair of shoes, so keep it simple, timeless, and elegant.
