Comfort  – Your perfect wedding shoes need to be comfortable, don’t forget that you will walk down the aisle with them, greet your guests, pose for the photographers, walk in them all day, cut the cake and possibly dance with them.
Remember that in Italy, and especially in Umbria. there are many old streets made of pebble stones.
Right heel and height – This is an important choice, as your wedding dress will be fitted to accommodate the height of your heels.
If you don’t feel comfortable with very high heels, I would not try them out the day of your wedding, it’s not the day to experiment!
If you are not used to stiletto’s, consider platform heels, wedge shoes, lower kitten heels or even satin ballet slippers can be beautiful bridal shoes if you prefer flat.

  • Surrounding of your wedding in Umbria – Your shoes need to be compatible with the wedding surrounding, don’t wear stiletto’s if you have a reception in one of the beautiful Umbrian venues with a beautiful but unpaved garden, platform, wedges or flats will save you from sinking into the grass. In Umbria there are many streets with pebble stones, so if you are getting married in a Town Hall, consider also walking on them in your shoes.
  • Colour of your wedding shoes – Your wedding shoes should match your wedding dress, the style of the wedding and your personal style.They don’t need to be the colour of the dress, they could also match with the colour of your bridesmaid’s dresses or your wedding theme.
  • Don’t buy them last minute – You will need to bring your shoes to the dress fittings, so that your dress will be of the correct length. I always suggest you buy them before coming to Italy. I know there are many beautiful Italian designers, but maybe you can buy another pair of shoes to wear after the wedding.
  • Allow a fair budget – If you pick the right shoes you can use them again for future occasions, so even if you splash a bit it’s not wasted money and you make sure you will be comfortable the day of your wedding. The last thing you want is to walk around with cheap and uncomfortable shoes that undervalue your wedding dress and hurt your feet!
  • Treat your feet – Schedule a relaxing pedicure before your wedding day, you will feel at your best with your soft skin, neat cuticles and freshly painted nails!
