If the Shoe Fits… Bridal Shoes!

a90465fb6f69f35c23fa1a4b6875285d

Finding the perfect shoe is like finding the man of your dreams: it takes time, patience, and an open mind! This season we are seeing hues of blushes and soft neutral tones in bridal fashion. We always love something a little different, so the perfect feather or bow detail will always be appreciated at CBA! Which shoe would you wear for your special day?

One Dress: Two Generations

I love this David Meister dress from Carine’s Bridal Atelier because it works so well for so many women. From a mother of the bride to a guest of the wedding or even a bride to be. The sheen of the fabric gives the dress an evening flair and is so unique in its texture. The cap sleeve and ruching at the side provides coverage and a flattering shape for more mature women while the gold hardware and cut out detail at the neckline puts a fun twist on the typical cocktail dress for a younger feel as well.

This dress should be paired with simple accessories since the fabric has so much life. I would wear a shoe with some metallic detail in a simple shape. For a more mature woman a lower heel and less shine tends to work better.

For a younger look a shoe with a simple shape still works but a higher heel makes more of a statement.
Earrings are all you need to top off this look. For a mother of the bride or mature guest I would go with a classic option like this glamourous stud.
For a bride or younger guest, something more linear and sassy is the best match.

Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend than shoes must come in a close second.
Here are some of our favorites to pair with that special white dress…
Blush is currently the “hot” color for bridal.

A little unconventional, but that’s why we like them,
and you can definitely wear these again.

Just in case you needed a little more bling…

How cute are these lacy toe socks?!

I mean, you can’t get any more “bridal” than lace.

Pretty in Pink

This pair would blend in beautifully with any gown,
and they look extracomfy with the platform.

Is it just me, or do these shoes scream Carrie Bradshaw?!

Love the pop of color!

Like the bow, love the contrast.

For the inner Dorothy in all of us!

Finally…a nice pair of flats for when your tired feet just need a break!
