The trend for wedding shoes that you can wear again after your big day, has boomed in the last few years. With brides wanting to put their own personal stamp on their look, as well as being more practical about how they spend their money, it really is no surprise. Whilst the fashion in the past was to wear silk or satin shoes to match the colour of the dress (usually in white or ivory) we are seeing more and more brides opting for alternative colours, prints and styles. Here are some of the hottest trends for wedding shoes you can wear again!
Kill two birds with one stone by opting for blue shoes – your something blue and shoes you can wear again!
Rainbow Club’s Dye Studio is a fantastic option for brides that want to wear their wedding shoes more than once. They currently have over 50 different styles in satin, lace and diamante, which can be dyed to the colour of your choice. So whether you want your shoes to match your bridesmaid dresses on the day or you just want to dye them after the wedding, this bespoke service will enable you to get more use out of your shoes!
Jazz up your outfit with a pretty pair of patterned shoes, which can easily be worn again as a guest to a wedding or for a smart occasion! We love how Rainbow Club has teamed these floral print, peep toe shoes with a simple and elegant short wedding dress. The subtle geometric stripe pattern on the dress contrasts perfectly with the soft and feminine floral print and it adds just the right amount of a pop of colour!
Neutral shoes are a wardrobe staple and all girls should have a pair – they literally go with everything! With this theory in mind, investing in a pair for your wedding day makes perfect sense! If you want wedding shoes you can wear again, but don’t want to go for anything too jazzy or contrasting to your wedding dress, this is the option for you! Whether you choose a blush pink, nude or champagne tone, they will look gorgeous with your bridal gown as well as with your LBD!
A pair of sandals are a great idea for brides who value comfort! They can be worn for the duration of your wedding or can be your second pair for changing into in the evening. Not only are they a versatile option for your wedding day, but they will also be great for your honeymoon or even just thrown on with a pair of your favourite jeans for an afternoon shopping! Cute and comfortable, you’ll get endless use out them!
If you’re a colourful character and love all thing creative, a pair of customised shoes is a fabulous option! It’ll give you the opportunity to put a really original and personalised stamp on your wedding day look. You’ll be able to design a pair of shoes exactly as you like, to suit your personality, match the theme of your wedding and to ensure they’re something you’ll wear again!
