Most women love shoes, so it's no surprise that brides put a lot of thought into the heels they'll wear for their wedding days. While some brides choose classic bridal styles, others select shimmering shoes with sparkle and bling to stand out on their big day. If you're wearing a wedding dress with a full skirt, chances are most people won't see your shoes anyway – so why not select a style that makes you feel confident as you walk down the aisle? But if you're changing into a second wedding dress for the reception, such as a minidress or a stylish high-low gown, your wedding shoes will be on full display.
There are plenty of ways to add a little sparkle to your bridal pumps. Choose a peep-toe style or sandal that's completely encrusted in crystals or one that features jewels on the toe or back of the heel. For more traditional brides that prefer to not be too flashy, heels with metallic details in silver or gold are great options that allow a bit of shimmer, without the sparkling details. Bold brides will love more trendy designs, like the "Viola" shoe by Jimmy Choo, which features ostrich feather details, "Tabitha," a modern tie-up bootie by Freya Rose, or "Alexia," which features origami-style details on the back of the heel by Emmy London.
