sweet shoesAttending or organizing wedding on a beach or in a field is lovely, but finding the right footwear for an outdoor wedding is quite daunting. And, as we all know, shoes can literally make or break your overall wedding experience and nobody wants to curse the gods for their poor choice in wedding footwear. Therefore, I want to give you several tips on picking the right pair for your upcoming outdoor celebration!

This might come as a surprise, but stilettos are not the only option when it comes to choosing shoes for your big day. From gladiator sandals to breathtaking wedges, there are many cute custom wedding shoes out there you could wear without risking damage to yourself or them.

Late summer is an incredible time for relaxed flat wedding sandals. They allow for comfort and easy movement, therefore they are ideal for an outdoor wedding. If you want your wedding footwear to be a little more dressed up, opt for rhinestone embellishments and a touch of color. If you would prefer looking like a Bohemian goddess on your big day, pick gladiator sandals with a short chunky heel for a more elegant vibration.

Some brides simply cannot imagine themselves in flat sandals and yet they know stilettos aren’t recommended for an outdoor event. In that case, wedges may be the perfect choice! For more traditional and feminine brides, lace wedges are probably the most romantic shoe options. Too girly for you? Consider the gladiator wedges in a tan hue. On the other hand, for brides who are looking for a little bit cooler wedding outfit, the wooden wedge detailing might be the best solution. These shoes are great for seamless day to night transition, too.

Finally, you can wear pumps! They are a good alternative for stiletto shoes, because their heel is chunky and won’t sink into the sand, grass or dirt. With some jewels on them, pumps are incredibly easy to pair with the wedding gown and the rest of the bridal outfit.
