Say It With Shoes - The New Way To Shout Out Your Sense of Bridal Style

Every bride's dream is to look amazing on her wedding day! It only makes sense that her shoes should be as styish as her dress!It may have all started with Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw and her passion for Manolo Blahnik shoes, but since then, speciatly shoe designers, like Blahnik, as well as Jimmy Choo, and Christian Louboutin have moved into the forefront of fashion design. Celebrities like Oprah Winfry, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, and many more have taught us that fashion is more than just the outfit, but involves the complete look from head to toe. For the stylish bride, this means it's not only about "saying yes to the dress", but also finding a fabulous pair of shoes to go with it!

All over the world, brides are moving away from the traditional white satin pumps and opting for something with a little more pizazz! They want something that reflects their personal sense of style. They want something that's fun. They want something that is going to complete the whole look and make everyone say "Wow"!

Color is huge! Lemon yellow, cobalt blue, racy red, and hot fuschia pink are just some of the stunning shades we're seeing brides choose for their shoes to go with their wedding white. It's a fabulous way to incorporate your wedding colors, and can even be carried through to your bouquets and such.

In terms of actual styles, you can choose from strappy sandals to sexy slingbacks. Maybe pumps are more to your liking. The best part is that no matter what your particular taste, the possibilities are endless!

My only recommedation is for you to carefully consider the size of the heel. The fact is that you're going to be on your feet lots throughout the day, with opportunities to sit far and few between. The stiletto hell may look fantastic, but will you be able to survive the day in them? If you absolutely have to have the killer heel, then at least have a second, more comfortable pair of shoes that you can slip on for the reception.

Shoes are a great fashion accessory! Not only are they fun, but they allow you to make a statement about who you are. What better day to express yourself and your sense of style, than on your wedding day!

So all I can say girls, is go out there, have fun, and make Carrie Bradshaw proud!
