Some say a newly married couple’s walk down the aisle is the star moment of the day. Others say the first dance or the father-daughter dance is what really puts tears in everyone’s eyes. Every girl’s big day is special, filled with moments He and She will never forget, but in terms of wedding wear trends, vintage-inspired and retro-styled shoes are becoming more and more popular.

Vintage-style shoes can look great with many different types of wedding dresses, and they give a very unique feel to the entire bridal look. Many high-end designers offer retro shoes, but if you’d rather spend your budget in other areas of the wedding, you can save a lot on your shoes by browsing around online or in vintage clothing stores.

Begin your search by having a style in mind. Consider the length and color of your dress, as well as what the groom and your bridesmaids are wearing. It might be fun to match with them and ask your wedding photographer to get some great shots. If you find a great pair, but they aren’t exactly perfect, you have some options. To pull the whole look together, consider adding some embellishments to the shoes such as pearls, lace, beading, etc. to complement your dress. 

Retro shoes also come in many different colors, which is a great opportunity to add personality. Red with a peep toe? Floral cut outs with a mid-height heel? Soft pink satin with a delicate bow? The possibilities are endless. A bride deserves her big day – and her perfect shoe. Shop around online and even in local vintage shops to find exactly what you’re looking for.
