Truth be told, though this may come in as a shocker, some of us would much rather splurge on our bridal shoes than on our wedding dress. Yes, we’ve been dreaming about the perfect white gown to walk down the aisle in since the first time we saw Cinderella marry Prince Charming. But as we grew up, we also realized that it's just as important to keep our feet happy.
Tying the knot soon? Below, we give you the top 5 things you need to look for when investing on the perfect wedding shoes.
1. You should still be able to wear it even after the wedding.
You’ll only get to wear your dress once, but if you pick the right shoe, it can stay with you forever. Wear it to dress up your shirt and ripped jeans combo, to add sparkle to your LBD, or to make you feel pretty every year on your anniversary for the rest of your happy life with your one and only.
2. It should be a worthy investment.
A wedding shoe must be treated as an investment. It should be the star of your walk-in shoe closet.
3. You should be able to dance in it.
If you’ve ever been to a wedding, then you’ll know that it’s the one and only time that you can make a person with two left feet dance like there’s no tomorrow. You can’t scrimp up on your wedding shoes since you’ll be wearing them from the time you walk down the aisle to the moment your hubby carries you to your honeymoon suite. That said, choose a pair that you can dance the night away in.
4. It has to be your dream pair, too!
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but can you honestly name a person who doesn't love shoes? If you’re like Carrie Bradshaw who would rather show off her wedding steppers than her engagement ring, then there shouldn't be anything stopping you from purchasing your dream pair.
5. It has to be as special as it can be.
Every woman deserves to own at least one pair of customized shoes in her lifetime and we can’t think of a better occasion to do so than on your wedding day. This season, Jimmy Choo’s new bridal collection comes with an exclusive “made-to-order” service exclusive for a limited period in the Philippines. It’s a sign, ladies! Beginning today until September 30, you can book an appointment at Jimmy Choo’s Shangri-la Plaza East Wing boutique to make your wedding dream come true. Aside from the array of styles, material, colors and finishes, you can also personalize the soles of your own Choos by either adding your initials or the time plate of your special day. Sweet!
