Shoes to Wear for a Tiffany-Styled Wedding

Save

Weddings with Tiffany-blue themes are a big trend, as evidenced by the number of Pinterest boards dedicated to them. It’s also in fashion for brides to choose colorful shoes to wear with a bridal gown. So, if Tiffany's iconic signature color, diamond rhinestones and pearls are part of your wedding decor, you may want to match your shoes to it.

Colored Shoes

  • After Carrie Bradshaw wore bright green shoes for her wedding to on-again-off-again love "Big" in the 2008 movie Sex and the City, many brides have forgone classic white pumps and opted for more colorful, statement-making options to wear with their gowns. While few brides have the funds to purchase a Vera Wang or other designer wedding gown, the event is "a once-in-lifetime chance to splurge on a pair of high-fashion heels,” Cathy Schroeckenstein, editor-in-chief of the bridal blog Weddingbee, told "The New York Times." While a bride may wear a traditional white gown, a pair of brightly colored shoes is a way to make a more dramatic statement. And unlike the dress, the shoes can be worn to other events in the future.

Matching Shoes to Decor

  • Bridal shoe designer Aruna Seth told Brides magazine that it’s a big trend to match shoes to decor, invitations and flowers. If you’re going for the traditional white dress for your Tiffany blue-inspired wedding, it would be ideal to wear a pair of shoes in the same blue and embellished with diamond-inspired rhinestones or crystals as a nod to your Tiffany-inspired invitations, bridesmaids dresses, chair covers or other decor. The shoes would meet a bride's "something blue" criterion and could be worn again.

Other Considerations

  • Remember that no matter which shoes you wear, be sure to choose a pair you’re comfortable in and that’s not far removed from what you wear on a regular basis. For instance, if you live in flats, go for something a couple of inches high rather than a four-inch pair of killer heels. Remember to break your shoes in before the big day and bring along a pair of flats for later in the evening. Also, consider the venue: If your wedding is outdoors on grass, you may want to go with a thick heel or a wedge as opposed to a stiletto.

Where to Shop

  • Depending on your budget, you can shop for beautiful wedding shoes to match your Tiffany wedding at Target, Macy's or Neiman Marcus. But if you have something super-specific in mind, you can create your own custom pair at milkandhoneyshoes.com. Just choose a shoe style and enter information about heel height, color, material and embellishments.
