(PRWEB UK) 22 July 2014
The majority of shoe styles in any bridal footwear collection are high heel wedding shoes, yet most brides start shopping for their wedding shoes and demand kitten heels or flats. Wedding experts at Crystal Bridal set out to investigate this discrepancy and created an infographic to help brides choose the right style of shoe for their wedding day.
“I’m not used to wearing heels is the first thing many brides say when they come through the doors of our showroom looking for a pair of wedding shoes,” says Amy Karim, owner of Crystal Bridal Accessories. “We are constantly advising brides that unless they are worried about being taller than their groom, even a small kitten heel can add elegance to their overall look. Brides sometimes forget that they will be wearing a large gown and also a gown which may be quite heavy. This is not something women are used to wearing on a daily basis so heels are necessary for a good posture in the wedding photographs.”
Faced with an ever-increasing list of issues surrounding why women can and cannot wear certain styles of shoes including foot surgery, high instep, back problems and even feeling of instability this useful infographic outlines the different heel heights available in bridal footwear collections and which choice is best for each individual bride.
The most popular style for experienced high heel wearers is either a stiletto or a platform wedding shoe. Stilettos can be a great choice for brides who have no issues with heels, and a platform style adds a certain level of cushioning and support while making the design more fashionable and trendy. For brides who need to co-ordinate a strong theme and retain a subtle, feminine look with their gown, a mid-heel or kitten heel is usually the best option. Flat wedding shoes are usually a very specific request and there is also the additional option of a block heel for brides who find it difficult to walk in heels as these offer more stability and support.
“Brides can occasionally find it quite difficult to find a comfortable pair of wedding shoes,” adds Amy, “We are always sharing expert advice on the various styles and we endeavour to find out what issues the bride needs to solve so we can recommend the best style. Hopefully, resources such as these will help brides become better informed and help make the search for the perfect wedding shoes easier!”
