Your Bridal Footwear Guide



By Richa

Cinderella footwear: with the changing trends, the trend for footwear keeps on changing too but what remains constant is the basic structure and need for different kinds of bridal footwear. Let’s see what a bride should and shouldn’t wear!

Mehendi, lehenga, jewellery and a smile creates an aura around and of the bride. We can see her walking down the aisle clad in this entire shringar but what we don’t really get to see is her feet. Even though we don’t get to see much of her footwear, it still forms an important part of her ensemble. Golden, silver and red used to be the favorites amongst the would-be brides when it came to the footwear but the flamboyant choices of today have increased the horizon of color choices. In fact, fundamentals of the feet shape is the foremost information one should have while selecting footwear for any occasion. Understanding your feet structure always helps in saving you the agony of shoe bites and blisters.

Comfort-wise

“Feet are basically of two types: Broad Feet and Narrow Feet. Women with broad feet have wide toes and comparatively narrow heels. Women with slender ankle, heel and toe are considered to have narrow feet,” says the expert, Ms. Pooja Dhamdhere, Founder of Intoto.in. Apart from the broadness and narrowness, the people usually complain about the fallen feet, which means their feet press entirely against the floor due to lack of curve in the instep. “Some have narrow ankles while some have chubby calves while on the other side some are flat-footed while some even have two differently sized feet,” adds Mr. Chander Daultani, Director, Valentino. But in the end it is not only about footwear which supports the shape of your feet, a good fit shoe must also give your walk and presence a character.

While we see a lot of brides opting for heels, there are various other options that might prove more suitable as per the occasion. All of us cannot carry heels and not everyone can be carried by heels. So for a happy feet and comfortable time, why don’t we give heels some rest and listen to our feet which have to bear the burden of our weight all throughout the wedding functions. “There are different types of heels that include stilettos, wedges, platform heels, cone heels and spool heels. Brides generally love to flaunt 6 inch heel or 5 inch heel because it makes them tall but it is advisable that she should wear that heel that goes with her personality and makes her comfortable,” rightly puts Mr. Daultani. True to his words, a wrong selection of heels can take a toll on a bride’s mood. He also suggests that stilettos heel are thin and it is difficult to walk in that if you are not used to high heels. Comparatively, wedges are much more comfortable than stilettos because they give you the broad base to walk and you can even feel comfortable while walking in wedges. Apart from that, spool heel and the platform heel also give your foot a nice support while carrying those heavy dresses and jewellery.



No matter what type of heel it is, what is equally important is the size of the heel you choose. The wiser you are in selecting the heel size, the happier will be your time wearing it. “On the wedding day, one should go for broad heels to wear with heavy lehenga. If the lady is tall, she should opt for heels up to 2 inches and girls with short height can choose upto five inches heels,” says Ms. Dhamdhere. It is also about your height after all! Not many of the girls are used to wearing heels and end up in a bad shape after wearing one for a long stretch. But are we that naïve to ignore the consequences of our desperate choices? Perhaps, no! So for our smart brides, we asked our experts to suggest the other dependable alternatives. To this Ms. Pooja Dhamdhere came up with a doable idea,"Apart from heels, traditional juttis are best to complement with heavy lehenga.” There are many of those who don’t prefer wearing heels but then the haunting question remains the same, ‘What should we wear?’ Needn’t you worry heel hating girls! We have all the tips and tricks for you in the house. “You should wear the footwear that enhances your personality not the one that makes you feel worrisome. The bride can choose 1.5 inch heel which is the least of all if she is not comfortable in any other heels. The bride can also go for ballet flat which are comfortable amongst all, if not then she can choose the short heel instead. It is not necessary for a bride to wear 4 or 6 inch heel always she can go for flats or bellies,” comes to the rescue, Mr. Daultani.

Fashion-wise

The heel type and size is not only dependent on a bride’s feet and height. There is one more important factor responsible for the preference of a particular shoe type, that is, the attire along with which the selected shoe is worn. We all know a bride’s attires for the wedding functions are studded with embellishments and heavy work of thread or zari; this makes the lehenga not only gorgeous but too heavy and lengthy to carry. The poor bride has to carry the load of the attire for long hours. So, it is essential for her to wear the glittering sandals but that fits right.” Whether it’s walking down the aisle or sharing a slow dance, you’re likely to spend most of your wedding day on your feet so it’s important to get the right pair of wedding shoes,” says the designer Sumona Parekh from label Sumona Couture.



While choosing the bridal lehenga, it is advisable to talk to your designers about the footwear that will help you support the lehenga or sharara that you choose for the wedding day. Your designer can guide you the best owing to their experience over the years and their knowledge of changing trends. “Heels should have appropriate height according to attire and comfort. Never skip heels even if you are tall, heels uplift your look and posture. Choose relevant colors such as golden, maroon, copper, silver, red or shades to compliment your lehenga. Just know comfortable wedding shoes equate happy bride,” says the sort after designer Preeti Ghai.

As much as we love to ride on high heels, the wrong colour choices can ruin the entire look for you, so here are some colour options for every complexion suggested by designer Preeti Ghai:

  • Brides with fair skin tone can go for colors like tomato red, peach or coral colors with golden detailing.
  • Ones with whitish complexion can go for shades of pink.
  • The ones with dark or dusky complexion can opt for the shades of maroon or brown with minimum sparkle.
  • Those who want to deviate a little from the mainstream colours can opt for natural or nude colours. “Nudes look definitely best on any skin tone whenever anybody is preparing for her wedding day. A nude shoe with stunning gemstones helps in elongating your leg because it doesn’t break up the line of the body and consequently, bride looks taller and skinnier,” chimes in the designer Sumona Parekh. In fact, this is one of the safest options for any skin tone. Simple yet unforgettable! The shoe colour that blends well makes your lehenga look prettier!

Preparation-wise

Wearing a heel is a choice but pulling it off gracefully is a gift. A messy bride is not much appreciated in any culture; she needs to be elegant on her bridal day. Those who face problems in balancing and walking in heels, it is of utmost importance to practice walking in heels prior the wedding because without a preparation, you can end up spoiling the poise in your bridal avatar. So, who says you can’t carry a slender heel beneath your wedding dress? For those who aren’t habitual, here are some tips to help you prepare for carrying yourself in your dream shoes and be comfortable all the night!



According to Ms. Pooja Dhamdhere, Founder of Intoto.in who has had many experiences of footwear selection with the would-be-brides:

Few things like slippery soul or the heavily studded souls should be avoided else it will make them fall or may not let them walk properly.
Another thing that should be avoided is stones and sequence material footwear which will not let bride to walk around because stones sometimes ruin the inner or the lining part of the lehenga.

Apart from that she should choose particular footwear or sandals which are easily removable because she has to sit and stand a lot to greet people and to attend many ceremonies.

The bride should have a happy tick on each point of her checklist, whether it’s your hair or your feet. The things we tend to ignore are the issues that matters the most. The would-be-brides must, therefore, pay special attention to their footwear and make sure their feet are familiar with their new dwellings for the wedding day. Happy Walking!
