6 Must-Know Wedding Shoes Trends For 2019
You may not think too much about it, but the shoes you wear on your wedding day is also an important thing to consider. You may think that nobody will see them, but on those times when your feet do peep out from the bottom of your skirt, you’ll also want to ensure they look their best and are also dressed in the prettiest shoes you can find.
Here are our favorite trends for wedding shoes for 2019.
You will be on your feet for most of the day, so of course you’d want to be comfortable. It is fine to not wear 4 inch heels on your wedding day. Instead, something like these laced ballerinas will make your feet look absolutely dainty when they peep out from underneath your skirt. On the plus side, you will be able to move around with ease and not worry about sore feet within hours.
Especially if you’re getting married in a traditional Chinese wedding dress, consider these satin embroidered flats. You can find a lot of designs, all beautifully embroidered with dainty flowers and other auspicious symbols like the phoenix and dragon. The workmanship alone is a sight to behold and of course, they must come in auspicious red!
It doesn’t matter the height of your shoes, embellishments are a must. Whether they are crystals, rhinestones or pearls, embellished shoes make great statement pieces when paired with the right dress.

You can basically monogram anything onto your shoes, like the simple “I Do” above or even your initials.

Don’t want to go for the traditional whites or nudes? Who says brides can’t wear colorful shoes?
These traditional Chinese wedding pumps will definitely be a trendsetter. The intricate embroidery and symbols showcase love and harmony.
These traditional Peranakan beaded shoes are definitely a work of art. In the olden days, young Peranakan girls learn this fine art from a young age because when they eventually get married, they are expected to craft their own pair as part of their wedding trousseau. Each shoe is hand sewn and takes many hours to complete.
This sliver pair with tiny flowers is definitely perfect for a wedding in spring or a garden wedding.

Metallic shoes are back and brides don’t necessarily have to wear silver.
Silver peep toe shoes are definitely safe choice. Not only do they match easily with any dress, they also highlight the fairness of your feet.

For the bold brides, why not try holographic shoes? Not many brides can pull this off with brazenness but if you are brave enough, give this a try. These are shoes that seem to change color depending on the light so people can’t really be sure what color you’re wearing.
Lastly, we want to leave you with a few tips to ensure you have a pleasant wedding day.
Comfort is the most important thing. If you are not sure you can be in heels all day, then opt for flats. But if you are up for the challenge, break in your shoes a few months before your wedding. Wear them and walk around in them so that you get used to their height and soften up the material.
You may want catwalk runway heels but if you’re not used to the height, then maybe you’d want to opt for something you’re more used to wearing. But again, if you’re up for the challenge (after all, it’s only one day), then practice walking around in them a few months before your wedding. This includes going up and down any staircases you may need to go through.
If your wedding is outdoors, like a garden or you need to walk on grass, then flats or wedges may be the better option.
