Thankfully evolving in recent years beyond a narrow offering of white satin pumps and bejewelled sandals, bridal shoe options have come a long way…in no small part thanks to the fashion designers re-inventing the offer. With icons like Valentino’s Rockstud or Aquazurra’s Wild Thing (neither marketed for bridal), look beyond the conservative ‘wedding edit’ of footwear for something spectacular and unique.
Bohemians can rejoice in the woven, tasselled and fringed options of recent seasons, shoes to be treasured for long after the event, perfect with a breezy summer wardrobe of maxi’s and mini’s alike.
Bridal booties offer a secure lace-up option for those planning to dance all night, with no shoe swap necessary! And classicists should consider a twist on the perennial pump, with a studded or two-tone option.
Find our round up of ten current favourites, for the season ahead (and long after the event).
