Advice and tips on designing your made-to-order shoes

Design your own bridal shoes

Even if you're normally a footwear fanatic, discovering the most important pair of shoes in your life can be the bane of many a stressed-out bride's existence.

So where to begin? Here are some tips for designing your own perfect pair of bridal shoes for your wedding. 



For extra height without the hassle. Platform shoes are easier to wear. Add a pretty bow or flower accent to add feminine flair to this modern bridal shape.

A mid-heel peep toe is on-trend and ideal if you're not used to heels. At 3", this style is very wearable and super-pretty. However if you would prefer a lower heel, then why not opt for the 2.25" heel alternative. Try playing with colour on the asymmetric front.

Peep toes work well with all length dresses and in all seasons. Choose a D'Orsay style for a more open look, or a full-cut for a graceful line. A Swarovski jewel cluster adds a touch of bridal glamour and elegance.

Open sandals show off pretty toes and painted nails. Add Swarovski diamante trim and your feet will shimmer and sparkle with every step down the aisle. For more information on how to adorn your beautiful shoes, read our embellishment guide

Elegant pointed courts cover up your tootsies in cooler weather. Select from one of five different shades of white bridal satin for classic elegance on your wedding day. Order bridal satin swatches so you can match your shoes to your dress, with 8 luxurious Italian satins to choose from.

Add a strap if you're planning to dance the night away. Secure your beautifully designed shoe to your newly-wed foot with an elegant ankle strap; even prettier with diamante.

Metallics are a great alternative to white. Silver, gold or white gold bridal shoes double up nicely as party heels after your big day. Add a slither of metallic snake for quirky charm.

Switch to ballet flats. If you don't want to spend all (or any) of your Big Day in heels, why not design a pair of matching ballet flats to make sure you enjoy dancing the night away.
