If you want to stand tall on your wedding day, but also be able to dance and walk out of your reception without aching balls, wedding shoes with low heels might be your solution. In the spirit of non-numb toes and non-aching balls, this week I’m going to focus on low-heeled shoes. A few flats, but mostly low heels with nothing over 2.5″ high. Enough to get a little lift, but not so much that you can’t feel your toes. Mission: Wedding Shoes Low Heels… Let’s do this!
If you’re going for the “something old, something new” tradition, blue shoes are a pretty easy way to get a pop of color even if the rest of your wedding feels more understated, colorwise. (For me as a color-fiend, of course I’m like UNDERSTATED COLORS WHAT IS THIS I DON’T COMPREHEND.) Blue wedding shoes can be a great way of getting a little color-fiend on your feet, while maintaining your aesthetic visions elsewhere.
The last time I featured Chinese Laundry on Offbeat Bride, commenters said things like, “I love CL shoes. I’ve had a pair for over 10 years and they’re still SO COMFORTABLE” and “I have a pair of Chinese Laundry boots that I got in high school. They are 17 years old… and I still wear them.” Even if you’re not quite as sold on the brand, you’re going to love the bonus shoe. It might be the naughtiest all-white wedding shoe I’ve ever seen.
This bride owns one of our most favorite dress design companies, [vendor-heart link="http://vendors.offbeatwed.com/listing/kmkdesigns"]KMKDesigns[/vendor-heart], so you won’t be too surprised to see that her own dress is nothing less than magnificent. But you’ll also be swept away by the other handmade fashions, nom-worthy cupcakes, the jail tour, and the totally sweet “high school prom” first dance.
On last week’s shoe post, Meganwins asked for a post about winter wedding footwear. I linked to my most recent post about wedding boots, but that was six months ago. Maybe it’s time for a new booted walk down the aisle… and maybe instead of just thinking BOOTS, I’mma go for footwear that’s just generally better for winter weddings. A little warmer, a little more water resistant, a little less strappy. Winter brides, hold my gloved hand, and let’s do this…
Erika and Emmanuel chose a Raleigh, North Carolina Moroccan restaurant called Babylon for their ceremony and reception spot. The venue’s brightly colored interior and exterior definitely complemented the fun vibe of the day! Wedding decor included wedding flags decorated with hearts and flags that read “Yay” and “Huzzah,” and Erika and Emmanuel carried their own “Mr. and Mrs. Emmerika” flags.
