A wedding is a celebration uniting two people together. In doing so, not only are their closest friends and family members brought together, but also those who remain in their memories. When I plan a wedding, I like to incorporate the bride and groom's personalities, interests and cultural customs. I always remind my clients to never forget those who made them who they are, such as their grandparent(s) or closest aunt or uncle who has since passed.Our loved ones should never be forgotten. What seems like a small detail in the greater scheme of things, will become a significant memory when thinking back to that special day...to feel that their spirit was present, listening and knowing they were a part of the celebration. Something as small as wrapping two small photo lockets to your bridal bouquet, incorporating a reading in the ceremony or having photos of them at the reception will keep their memories alive for you and your guests. It's the smaller things in life that make the biggest difference! Cherish those that are alive but never forgot those who have passed. (photo courtesy of: Irina Photography)

A pair of coloured bridal shoes (like these Alan Pinkus) is a great way to tie the many details of a wedding together. Even shoes can inspire your décor and accentuate the beauty of fresh flowers…stylish and classy coloured bridal shoes are becoming more and more popular with brides. A little surprise of colour under your wedding dress – other than the garter - is a unique and great way to show off your personality through a pair of glamorous shoes!
Some people may argue that wedding shoes are not as important as the other accessories because they are hidden away. However when a bride walks forward, kneels at the alter, gets in and out of the limousine, and takes her wedding photographs, the shoes are always a compliment to any lovely wedding dress.
Just take a look at this HOT pair of Christian Louboutin Coquine Pink Satin Slingback. It’s a peep toe made of satin with an 85mm stiletto heel, a front criss-cross metallic ribbon & bow detail, and of course it has the signature Louboutin Red soles. Imagine if guests catch a glimpse while the bride is walking down the aisle or during the first dance as Mr. & Mrs, it will leave them wanting to see more.
Even better is a pair of the LEGENDARY blue Manolo Blahnik shoes that played a significant part in the movie “Sex and the City”. They are sleek, sexy and undeniably a luxurious fashion accessory for any bride who wants to be the center of attention on her wedding day. Wearing these as wedding shoes will leave any bride the talk of the town.
Now don’t get me wrong, as much as you want your shoes to look gorgeous, don’t forget that you need to pick a pair that takes into account the length of the wedding dress and the height of the bride. Also it is very important that the bride is comfortable first and foremost and finds it easy to walk in because the last thing anyone wants is to watch the bride wobble down the aisle or sit out on her first dance. And it’s always a good idea to break them in before the wedding day!
All in all, make sure you can walk, dance, and have fun in whatever shoes you choose to wear!
