I love shoes. Honestly, I think it’s the first thing that I bought for my wedding, and in the end, I purchased two pairs of shoes for my wedding. I wore a pretty pair of ivory silk heels for my wedding, and sparkly rose gold Kate Spade Keds for the reception. Could I have made it through the reception with heels? Yes, probably. But honestly, if you can justify buying two pairs of shoes, then why not do it? Also, the reception was way more fun in Keds.
Picking my wedding shoes was easy. If you ask my mom, she’ll tell you I’ve always been in love with “unpractical” shoes. I was in love with my four inch heels, and they made it a lot easier to kiss my husband who’s a whole foot taller than me. Luckily for me, I’m decent at walking in heels. Decent enough to confidently walk down stone stairs and through a grass yard to the place of my ceremony. But, I’m not good enough to comfortably rock four inch heels while dancing for hours on end, which is why I knew I needed to get sneakers. My sneakers were also an easy choice because I’ve loved Keds for as long as I can remember. I also wanted to add color, and I’m obsesses with soft tones like blush. Much like my lifelong obsessions with unpractical shoes, I’ve also had a lifelong love of sparkly things, and so my final decision was simple. Just like that I had both pairs of my wedding shoes.
Of course, as we enter the start of a new wedding season, I can’t help but get lost in the new wedding shoe options, particularly those best suited for receptions. Here’s my most current round up:
You can get these beauties in white or black, and while I personally would feel way more comfortable rocking the white and gold, I can imagine the bride with the cool vibe style who would totally rock the black style.
I’m seeing how long I can hold out before I purchase these pretty blue ones! These Keds and Rifle Paper Co. team up are perfect for the boho bride. You can choose to go more neutral or add a pop of color. I’m seriously in love. Think of all the miles you’ll get with these shoes after the wedding!
Are running shoes more your thing? Then, maybe you’ll love these metallic magic-looking shoes from Nike. Nike’s website says they were created to help you tackle your longest distances, but I bet they’d also be good at helping you tackle your most important day. These beauties come in many colors so you can match them to your wedding; however, I favor this Sunset Glow shade.
