Hello lovely Homemade Brides! Today I’m here to give you some inspiration on an idea I often consider an after-thought, shoes! When there is so much to plan and think about, your bridesmaids shoes are not always on the top of the list. However, we’re here to help make this a fun topic so here are some options that I have worn, or seen in weddings that I just love!
I have my sister Briana to thank for these beauties. Not only do I wear these shoes still today, but I always remember her wedding when I put them on! All of her bridesmaids wore white low-cut converses to match her dress and she wore pink to match ours! Our dresses were long enough that you couldn’t see them until we pulled up our dresses but man did it make for great pictures and a comfortable day!
Another sorority sister of mine was recently in a wedding where the maids all wore cowboy boots. I cannot get enough of this! If you are looking for a down-home country feel, these boots are the perfect way to add instant country-chic!
I absolutely love this idea for the perfect preppy or beachy wedding. Jack Rogers sandals are simple and clean! They come in so many different color combinations that finding the perfect shoe for your theme is as simple as can be. You can also have them monogrammed as a gift for your maids!
My mini tip to leave you with is to invest in heel stoppers if you choose to have heels and will be outdoors! These things pop right onto the bottom of most standard heels and stop the maid who is wearing them from “sinking” right into the ground! You can find these at most shoe and drug stores and well as online.
I hope this post jogs, pun intended, your imagination for more creative options for footwear on your big day. Have fun with it!
