You’d be hard-pressed to find a bridal publication that doesn’t portray heels as the go-to show choice for all brides. However, if you’re planning on having your wedding on grass or sand, you definitely need a good pair of summer wedding shoes. Your choice of footwear compliments your wedding accessories. You don’t want to look fabulous in your dress while uncomfortable in your shoes.
Summer weddings are flexible and allow you to have a myriad of options for footwear. Plus, you’re probably hoping for bright weather on D-Day, in which case, you can expect some heat. As the day progresses, it is possible to wear heels or open shoes or maybe, a combination of the two.
There is a vast selection of shoes to choose from, including ankle straps, lace-up shoes, embellished shoes, and peep-toe shoes, depending on how much you want to show off your feet. High heels are classic, but they may be uncomfortable in hot weather, so opt for fashionable block heels or even kitten heels to keep cool.
