Tips to Choosing a Different Color For Your Wedding Shoes

More and more brides these days are choosing alternatives to the traditional white wedding shoes or ivory bridal shoes.  Instead, they are going with more colorful shoes.  Even the alternatives of silver and gold are being set aside for things like purple or green or blue wedding shoes.  If you are a bride leaning towards a different color wedding shoe, below are a few tips to figure out how to choose the right color.

Tip #1:  Think about your wedding colors and consider one of those options.  Many brides are now having their wedding shoes match the bridesmaid dresses.  This provides great contrast in wedding pictures since the shoes stand out a little bit and allow the bride to match their bridesmaids in a subtle, but fun way.  When choosing which color, also look at the colors of the flower.  A fun way to have a bright colored shoe is to match them to bouquet or bridesmaid bouquet flowers.

Tip #2:  Consider using blue wedding shoes as your something blue.  Just like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City, blue wedding shoes are definitely a hot trend.  Many brides use these blue wedding shoes as their something blue.  If you are going to go with blue, consider a royal blue or a pale blue.  Both colors are gorgeous and elegant, but also understated enough to go with the dress.

Tip #3:  Look in regular shoe stores under evening shoes for your bright colored bridal shoes.  If you want a non-traditional color, then it is almost easier to shop for since you are not confined to bridal stores.  Some of the upscale designers have great colors as do many of the latest trendy shoe designers.  The beauty of not going with white or ivory is that you have many more shoe stores to shop at.

Tip #4:  If you cannot find the color you want, consider buying dyeable bridal shoes.  Dyeable bridal shoes are actually really easy to work with.  Many come in different styles and some even have rhinestones on the toes.  If you do not know how to dye them, take them to a shoe store which will dye them for you.  If you are doing this yourself, make sure you buy the right color and you see the color outside in natural light.  Also, make sure you buy water repellent to control staining in case the shoes get wet or it rains that day.  The worst thing is for the dye to start running and get all over your dress.

Tip #5:  Have fun and choose a color you like!  Don not feel confined to a certain color or feel like you have to match some part of your wedding.  If you have a favorite color, go ahead and buy shoes in that color.  The shoes are the final part of your outfit, but they definitely make a statement.  They say something about who you are and showcase something different besides the traditional bridal wear.  So, if you are a bride that is choosing a different color bridal shoe like blue wedding shoes or red bridal shoes, have fun!
