Head over Heels in love!

Hello friends! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Let's get this week started off with some gorgeous goodies! I know that dresses are discussed quite a bit on this blog, as are other fun detail such as veils and headpieces. Now, for a post on my most favorite accessory in the world - shoes! As I look through previous posts, I can't believe that I haven't talked about bridal footwear!

There are two different schools of thought when it comes to the shoes a bride wears on her wedding day. One of those is the very traditional, simple white shoe that blends into the background and lets the dress be the star. This group is appalled at the thought of a bride wearing a colored shoe on her wedding day. Why would she do that, they wonder. No one will ever look at her face or her dress, they will just stare at her shoes! I think this group thinks along the same lines as the people who will only consider white flowers for the bride's bouquet. Lets make everything blend, so when people look at the bride, they are able to see the big picture.  So for these brides, here are some absolutely fabulous wedding shoes!

Subtle shades of white...

These classic Kate Spade pumps are perfect for every occasion

These Manolo Blahnik wedges would be perfect for an outdoor wedding! 

Channel Carrie Bradshaw in these classic Manolo Blahniks - love the pearl details!

For the daring bride, Christian Louboutin's fabulous bridal sandals with blue lining!
As these shoes prove, white doesn't mean boring!

Now for the second group of brides. The girls are all about bright pops of color! Carrie Bradshaw truly started this trend with the Something Blue Manolo Blaniks in the 2008 Sex and the City movie. So elegant, but so much fun at the same time! For these brides, the brighter the color, the better! Also, these girls would be much more open to a jewel encrusted shoe than the first group of brides. I think that the most fun combination for the the colored shoe girls is to do a cocktail or tea length wedding dress with darling colored shoes! Let your personality shine in your shoes!

Here are a few of my favorite colored shoes!

These Giuseppe Zanotti heels are perfect for a spring wedding - just a hint of color

Yellow has been a huge color in weddings this season - add a little yellow to your bridal outfit!

Truly over the top, these Christian Louboutins are absolutely spectacular!!

The jeweled strap on these Jimmy Choo sandals is just the right amount of sparkle

Want color and comfort? These Manolo Blahniks are perfect for you!
Aren't these shoes so much fun? Which one is your favorite? I think I have to go with the Christian Louboutin flower sandals! They are to die for!

Have a fabulous Tuesday and I will see you back here tomorrow!

As always, much love,

The Bridal Belle
