When preparing to walk down the aisle, what shoe to wear has become a major consideration for brides and the options have come a long way!  Ten years ago, satin was the major material of choice but today brides are purchasing a shoe that they can wear on the wedding day and beyond.

A major wedding shoe trend that we have seen in the past 12 months is #bling.  From Loubiton and Jimmy Choo to Badgley Mischka and Manolo Blahnik we continue to see a classic peep toe shoe construct but with a very strong wow factor!

Brides looking for a real pop of sparkle are choosing wedding shoes fully encrusted in rhinestone.

Others are taking the more traditional satin wedding shoe yet offering a beautiful embellishment at the toe.

Lastly, we are seeing a trend in metallic.  Whether finished in bronze, silver or gold tones, metallic wedding shoes are quickly become a trend that is most likely here to stay.  These Jimmy Choo Evelyn’s make us swoon!

One thing is clear, brides are choosing shoes that they can take from the runway, to the wedding day and beyond; repurposing the shoes for years to come.  Gone are the days of dying your satin pumps after the wedding.  We think these new wedding shoe trends are here to stay!
