The Wedding Guest Shoe Guide

A winning outfit for any special occasion requires a bit of planning in advance and with wedding season upon us, it’s time to look at all the shoe options. This Wedding Guest Shoe Guide considers a number of different settings, from a small seaside town, to a picture perfect garden or an old church.

Beach

Delicate and dainty flat sandals are great for long flowy dresses (like this yellow floral Together Printed Dress) perfect for the guest attending a beach, beside a waterfall or even an exotic international location (lucky you!) wedding. Some nuptials can be quite long events so make sure pick a pair you find comfortable. Feeling the sand in between your toes is an added bonus!

Tip: You know that saying, “Put your best foot forward”? That physically applies here so don’t neglect your toes and set aside for some serious pedi time beforehand.

Garden

Stacked heels, wedges and flats are ideal for outdoor weddings set on an immaculately manicured lawn. Unfortunately, what the weather decides to do on the day isn’t just the bride’s problem so choose a style appropriate for the climate too. A thin high heel might also be a pain to walk in on uneven surfaces, especially mushy grass.

Tip: If you are wearing suede, don’t go anywhere near gravel or mud , otherwise bid that pair farewell.

Church / Hall

While being outdoors might mean no filters needed for your Instagram photos (You can follow EziBuy here by the way), most styles can be worn inside covered venues. Here we have a mix of low, medium and high heels.

Tip: If you plan on wearing heels, pack a pair of flats for later like this Next Cap Toe Ballerinas which will, believe me, come in handy when you’ve out-danced everybody on the dance floor.
