If the shoe fits…(and elevates your wedding style)…wear it! While THE GOWN is the single most important part of any bridal look, shoes are the icing on your cake! Below, I’m sharing some of my current wedding shoe favorites – each paired with the style/silhouette they compliment best, and styling tips when selecting that perfect pair for your Lauren Elaine gown.
For Unicorns, pair your fairytale “Bijou” ball gown with a magical pair of ombré colored pumps for a modern and unexpected pop of color.
Show-stopping sparklers like “Pallas” are best complimented by subdued sparkle, like these metallic Choos. Tip for tulle mermaids: Make sure your sparkling heels have smooth stone work without metal casings OR choose simple metallics for effect – they won’t catch on your delicate skirt/train.
For New Romantics, channel your ethereal side with floral textures to add excitement and texture to your look without adding bling or sparkle. These blossuming Aquazurra beauties play nice with “Calais.”
Classic beauties pair well with classic lace-ups. Clean and refined, the peep toe on these by Diane Von Furstenberg offers the same peek-a-boo effect as the kick pleats and bodice on our “Ember” gown.
For Ballerina brides, twirl your wedding reception away (gowns like “Halcyon” and “Giselle” are made for it!) in lace-up slippers and pointe-inspired heels.
Exotically detailed lace gowns pair well with equally detailed shoes. Pair “Arabelle” with these pattern-matched Rene Caovilla ankle strap stilettos, OR opt for the flat option for destination beach weddings in “Vaile.”
Decadent beaded mermaids are complimented by beaded, textured heels. Pair “Capella” with metallic embellished stunners by Sophia Webster.
For Disco Queens, party the night away in your dance-floor worthy “Lotus” paired with glitter goddess pumps for effect.
Modern Mermaids like “Lucite” are at home in metallic, modern stilettos like these Sophia Webster stunners. Stay away from too much detail on your feet, the gown’s already got it!
Chic cropped gowns, like the tea-length “Haven,” can handle one-of-kind, whimsical sandals like these butterfly ankle straps by Sophia Webster.
Vintage & Victorian-inspired gowns, like “Gardenia”, play well with textured toes and T-straps.
Beachy beauties (like “Isla” and “Astoria”) pair seamlessly with embellished flats and kitten heels whether in the sand or on a dance floor.
Conservative classics go well together. Pair a long-sleeve lace “Elise” with timeless Valentinos for comfort, coverage, and style.
Something Blue? No problem, match your blue-hued “Fleur” to bold pair of lace-up royal pumps.
Prismatic Perfection: Sparkling “Prism” pairs well these geometric gems by Valentino.
