Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular with thanks to companies like Sandal Resorts making it a fuss-free, luxurious experience for the happy couple and their guests. We’ve had many brides come to us over the years in search for the perfect bridal shoes for their destination wedding. We always say that it's never too early to start planning your bridal footwear because you need to guarantee you are as comfortable as possible on your big day.
Here are a few pointers to help you choose the perfect pair of destination bridal shoes:
Comfort & Practicality
Comfort is a very important factor when it comes to looking after your feet on the big day; destination weddings bring bright sunshine, warm, turquoise waters and golden sand which are all very appealing but perhaps a little tricky on your feet.
In warm weather, your feet can swell after a long day, so it's important to choose shoes that are made from breathable, natural materials that can shape and adapt to your feet throughout the day. Avoid plastic and instead opt for suede and leather. Straps can help too because you can loosen and tighten the shoes throughout the day.
At Emmy London we use only the finest suede and leathers, we also cushion the inside of our shoes to relieve the pressure on the soles of your feet.
On uneven ground or sand, you can't beat a flat shoe style, our Jude flat sandals with Swarovski crystal embellishments come in both ivory and blush, their delicate straps comfortably hold your feet in place so you will feel secure all day long. They have been called the dream bridal flat due to their luxurious comfort and pretty detailing.
Style is Important
Style is always important when it comes to your wedding day, whether you're going for a laidback boho look or making a glamorous statement with a more embellished dress. Make sure you consider the style of your shoes, after all, they are the finishing touch to your bridal ensemble.
It's often tricky to find stylish shoes that are also ‘grass friendly’, but at Emmy London, we have designed a collection of flat and wedge bridal shoes that are the perfect option for a garden wedding.
If you're a less-is-more bride, then our Tilly Wedge is a great option. With a seductive peep toe and high wedge heel, this ivory wedge classic is breathable and comfortable to wear due to its super soft suede construction. If you’re after something with a 'wow' factor, then our Evelyn Ivory style with Cinderella trim adorning the front of the shoe could be a great option for brides who want a touch of sparkle with the practicality of a wedge heel.
For the honeymoon too…
For some brides, bridal shoes are only for the big day, but some like to get a little more wear out of their chosen style. We pride ourselves on our 'from wedding to honeymoon' styles. These are gorgeous shoes that are created not just for your wedding day, but they are perfect for the honeymoon too.
Imagine sipping a post-wedding cocktail by the pool in our Evelyn Blush style or perhaps our sensational Alexandra shoes. Alexandra with pearl detailing, are a dream option for your beach-side wedding and a joy to wear for a romantic dinner date at your chosen Sandals resort. Their warm blush tones look great with a tan!
