How to choose wedding shoes

According to the popular belief, the colors of a bag and shoes should match. This makes the task at least a bit easier because there is no universal formula for choosing wedding shoes for a bride. There are several scenarios:

  • Perfect – you choose pretty and comfortable shoes that match your outfit.
  • Compromise – you find something beautiful and quite comfortable and the pair of low-heels to change in case you get tired.
  • Heroic – you pick the amazing footwear and get ready to overcome any difficulties in case the shoes are not comfortable.

Think twice before making the final decision.

Fashion changes too fast to keep track on every trend, while the classic wedding color combinations stay the same for decades. Here are some of the most popular palettes of wedding shoes for brides in Nigeria.

Red and white/silver

These are the dominant colors of Igbo outfits. Clothes, matching accessories, and shoes can be combined in different variations, but always look shiny. Although it is the classic Nigerian combination, it looks quite universal and is likely to remind about western influences.

Gold and orange/red

In Yoruba tradition, both bride and groom have the elements of gold color in their outfits. Often these elements can be limited to gold stitching and threading, but they are very distinctive. Whether a reference to bright future or wealth, gold details look perfect with shoes decorated with sparkles.

Low-heel wedding shoes

Some brides believe aim to choose comfortable and elegant high heels to wear during all wedding day. However, there are at least two good reasons to buy the low-heel alternative. Firstly, social activities, including dancing, and a lot of walking may be more complicated than you think. Secondly, you can wear these shoes more than once.

In case you cannot decide which one to take, find the compromise or make the for-and-against list. If it is possible, take both options.

A few words about purses

A purse is most likely to become the finishing touch of your preparation.

  • Choose the color and shape, which matches the overall image.
  • It should be little – you do not need to carry all “just in case” things with you on this day.
  • If you are going to use the purse after wedding, do not hesitate to spend more money.
  • Do not worry if it is a one-time accessory – this day is worth it.
