There are indeed hundreds of bridal shoes to choose from – heels to flats, lace-ups to slip-ons. You will be wearing your shoes to walk down the aisle and throughout the ceremony at the very least, so it is an important choice to make. But what are the 2021 must have bridal shoes and how will they work with your outfit for the big day?
Often referred to as ‘Pumps’, heeled shoes are never truly out of fashion. Think along the lines of having classic Jimmy Choos and Manolo Blahniks as your 2021 wedding heels and these are right on the money. A timeless pair of slip-on satin heels with a diamante flourish are never going out of fashion.
Instead of a slip-on style heel, you could consider a Mary Jane style wedding shoe to align with 2021 high-street fashion trends. A simple strap that buckles together can add charm to your outfit and look especially lovely with a tea-length or 50’s style bridal dress. Additional choices like a block heel or a patent shoe add more variety to the upcoming wedding season.
Ditch the classic muted colours like white, ivory and champagne and avoid a full matching dress/show combo. Metallic shoes that look as if they have just been dipped in molten gold or silver are a key trend to jump on board with this year. Add that Hollywood glamour via a shimmering metallic finish no matter how simple or fancy your shoes may be in style.
Comfort doesn’t need to be sacrificed to have on trend bridal footwear. If high-heeled shoes are not your style, then opt for a simple elegant ballerina style flat. These can be much comfier and still be just as beautiful with your dress. Or even a small kitten heel is a wonderfully on trend way to get on board with a heeled shoe – minus the feeling you might topple over as you walk down the aisle!
Or a final trend for the year would be to just throw the rule book out of the window. After the year we have had and the waiting or even postponing of your wedding to patiently go through – just wear whatever you want. Go for a pair of Nike trainers or a bejeweled pair of custom heels. Quite possibly, the biggest wedding trend of 2021 will be to just let loose and enjoy the moment!
