Flat bridal shoes. At first that could provoke a boring mental picture, but only if you have not looked at the endless variety of wedding ballet flats. It is dazzling, in fact overwhelming to browse through the many styles, colors, plain or print, leather (suede included), or even sporty looking designs. And many by the top shoe fashion artists.
There are practical reasons for choosing flat shoes for your wedding. Easier on the sole of foot muscles, which will walk you down the aisle, and bear your weight at the perhaps long and challenging reception line, if your groom has a huge family....
During the reception and dinner, you will be getting up and down all the time. If you wear four inch heels and kick them off when you sit down, you'll be groping for them every time a speech is demanded.
If you choose flat shoes for your bridesmaids, I guarantee it they will be forever grateful. They have just as long a day as you do - in fact longer! Many brides leave the wedding early for their honeymoon leaving the wedding party and guests dancing all night. Flat shoes can convey the very edge of designer fashion, while feeling like bedroom slippers!
After your wedding, all can wear their wedding ballet flats for many occasions.
In particular, white, black, ivory, silver and gold ballet flats can be matched with jewelry. Earrings, necklaces and bracelets can easily be chosen to go with your wedding party outfits.
Many ballet flats come in designs with two or three colors, particularly mixtures of metallic shades. This allows a mix and match choice of jewelry for bride and bridesmaids. Some women look better in the colder shades of white, silver, or white gold. Others glow handsomely in the warmer gold, copper and bronze tones.
While mixing these hues for jewelry, all can wear the same flats!
