If the Shoe Fits, Wear it in a Bright Color

If the Shoe Fits, Wear it in a Bright Color!

Splash of Sunshine Wedding Shoes

It is of course traditional in mainstream society for the bride to wear all white: White veil, white dress, white shoes. But what if you are one of those gals that just can’t help but always want to wear a pop of color? You could select a dress that has colored beading, wear a colorful petticoat, or a colored veil, but one of the easiest and most fun ways to include that drop of sunshine in your white wedding look is to have some peek-a-boo color with your wedding shoes.

Stand Out on Your Own

Green Wedding Shoes

A lot of brides that want to have that spice of color in their wedding look will choose to have that bright color featured only on themselves, or in a way that is unique to them. For example if you want to have some peek-a-boo green shoes, green may be one of your wedding colors, but you wouldn’t have your bridesmaid’s wearing the color or even having their shoes being in the same color. If anything, their bouquets may feature some green in either the flowers or in the ribbon. Ideally, your shoe color pop would be in one of the color accents your are featuring in your wedding color scheme, but probably not the main color. Doing this, makes your color pop, more of a stand out, rather than a matchy match look.

Match the Bridesmaids

Another options is to match your bridesmaids. This is done in three variations. First you can wear the same shoe in the same color as each of your bridesmaids like shown in the image above. Or, you can wear shoes in the same bright color, but a different style. For example, if your bridesmaids are wearing red heels like in the image above, you might be wearing red flats, or higher heels, or perhaps sequined heels (a little wizard of Oz theme?). The third “match your bridesmaids” is to match not the shoe color, but the dress color. So, if your bridesmaids are in purple dress and black pumps, then you would wear purple pumps.

Color is the Thing

Or if your color scheme really is just COLOR all around, then you might decide to go for a rainbow styled bridal party. With this each bridesmaid gets her own color and the bride gets her own color like in the image above. If you do want to do a rainbow bridal party, we do recommend having the girls and guys wear a solid black ( or other neutral color) and then have the bright rainbow touches in the bouquets, shoes, socks, and ties. There is such a thing as too much color!
