Oh Heel No! 6 Reasons to Consider Wearing Flats for Your Wedding

Wedding Flats for Brides

If you're like us, you love a sexy stiletto as much as the next girl. But when it comes to your wedding day shoes, rocking a super high heel may not be in the cards. For both practical purposes and personal preferences, here are 6 reasons you may want to fall back on flats for your wedding after all.

1. Your feet will do a little happy dance
And you'll actually be able to dance without having to kick your heels off just to get some relief. A lot of brides don't realize exactly how long they'll be on their feet (um, all day!) because it's not simply for the ceremony and reception but the entire time beforehand too. Our suggestion? If you care about comfort, do your feet a favor and stick to fancy flats so you're not that bride who complains about how bad her feet are killing her the whole night. Annoying!

2. You're less likely to trip
As every girl knows, heels can be hard to walk in, especially when you're rocking a long gown and strutting down an aisle in front of a huge audience. Just think about how many actresses trip (ahem, Jennifer Lawrence) on the red carpet! The last thing you need on your wedding day is an ankle sprain. So avoid the embarrassment (and scars) of falling flat on your face by sporting flats.

3. Your hubby will look taller
If you and your fiancé are similar heights and you don't want to totally tower over him in wedding pics or he's self-conscious about it, then flats may be the perfect fit for you. It'll give your boo a little ego boost to look all tall and manly standing next to you. Definitely talk it over with him first and see if it's even an issue. Believe it or not, some guys are really weird about height so it's important to be sensitive to this.

4. The terrain isn't exactly heel-friendly
If you're getting hitched on the beach or anywhere outdoors really, heels may not be the most practical choice for the terrain. For instance, stilettos will quickly sink into sand and trip you up stat, whereas heel protectors are a must if you're saying, "I do" in the grass. And sadly they're not exactly attractive, nor are they 100% guaranteed to work as advertised.

5. You'd really want to wear your wedding shoes again
Those fancy high heels you bought specifically for the wedding? Chances are, you'll never actually wear them again. Blinged out flats, on the other hand, are a great way to dress up even the most casual outfit without sacrificing comfort for style. Pick a pair that you'd wear for the wedding and beyond.

6. You never wear heels in real life
If you're not sporting high heels on the reg in real life, there's no reason to try out a foreign style on your big day just to be "fashionable". Stay true to your style instead and stick to what works best for you and what you're most comfortable in. Otherwise you're going to look super awkward trying to figure out how to walk in heels for the first time.

Saying yes to your dream wedding dress may seem like the most important shopping decision you'll ever make — until you come to the shoes. In Miami, anything goes as brides often hit the aisle barefoot (as well as in five-inch Louboutins). Just as with your dress, shoe shopping is all about style, comfort, and price point, so if you've been waiting for that right time to splurge on designer heels, now's the moment to go all out. Here are a few of the best boutiques and bridal salons known for their showstopping selection of shoes sure to complete your picture-perfect wedding day look.

Fall Floral Crowns

Think twice before you assume that the floral crown is reserved for summer and spring weddings only. Autumn's natural rustic and bohemian nature serves as the perfect inspiration for a romantic halo of beautiful fall flowers and leaves. The season's wild vibes lend more room for a free woodland look that is perfectly unpolished. Branches and twigs, jewel-toned flowers, golden-hued leaves, wheat and straw — whichever earthy elements you choose, you can't go wrong. A fall color palette offers deep, gorgeous shades — the moody style will pop against a white wedding dress. Pair it with a matching bold lip to make a statement or choose a neutral lip to keep all eyes on the crown. These stunning floral crowns are rich in autumn inspiration.

A wild mix of brambles, flora, and fauna is perfectly fitting for a woodland princess. Red and mauve hues pay tribute to the romance of autumn. Wear a free-spirited crown like this with hair down. Tousled curls can create a bohemian look, while softly coifed waves can bring a chic vibe that elegantly juxtaposes with the earthy crown.

The husky hues of plum and sage in this crown bring out fall's softer side. Whispers of leaves bring texture to the piece with dark but subtle colors that frame a single peach rose above the ear. A look like this is best paired with a pulled back hairstyle to bring the rose's prominence to full effect.

Flower Crowns for Fall Weddings

Rocking an updo? The headpiece should be heavy in nature on the side of your chignon and light on the other side. This romantic style keeps the colors simple but the design striking. Marsala florals and greenery are spray painted for a golden touch that is both elegant and a bit bohemian.

4 ‘Something Borrowed’ Wedding Accessories That Can Pull Double Duty

 Jewelry & Accessories, Wedding Accessories, Wedding Ideas  Comments Off on 4 ‘Something Borrowed’ Wedding Accessories That Can Pull Double Duty
Oct 092016

We all know the English rhyme, "Something olde, something new, something borrowed, something blue, a sixpense in your shoe..." which suggests that when brides poses these five things, they will have good luck in their marriage and on their big day. While it may seem like just another thing you have to do before you walk down the aisle, if you think of it as a multi-tasking opportunity, it's easily achieved! Besides, its fun to participate in old traditions, and what bride doesn't want to kill two birds with one stone (and save some money while being sentimental, too)?

Your Veil
All former brides know that they probably will never be able to "lend" their dresses to a friend or relative, but veils are a different story. Borrowing a veil (that complements your ensemble, of course) is the best way to cross off that "something borrowed" criteria and put the finishing touches on your big day look, too. Nothing makes you feel more like a bride than a veil, and a veil with meaning behind it? Perfect. (If you opt for a new veil instead, think about paying it forward for a sister, friend or family member. Just be sure that if you preserve your dress, you keep the veil out of the process.)

Your Jewelry
A new ring on your finger is a given for your wedding day, but the rest of your jewelry doesn't have to be new. If you think about it, every experienced Mrs. has jewelry they've worn on their big day. Save some money and add extra special meaning to your bling choices by borrowing earrings, a bracelet, or a necklace from a special woman in your life. Chances are they will be honored you asked (many may also offer!) and it's a great way to combine tradition with necessity.

Hair Accessories
Wearing an embellished comb, halo, headband, or pin in your hair is a popular bridal trend for a reason: The right piece can really complete your big day do, and they're the types of items that you don't really wear more than once (meaning many been-there-done-that brides might have their accessories laying around collecting dust). Why not borrow a special piece from a friend or relative instead of hitting the stores and scouring endless sparkly options in expensive bridal boutiques? A word to the wise: Be sure to borrow it ahead of your hair trials.

Some wedding day tears are nearly guaranteed. Wipe them away in style and sentiment with a borrowed handkerchief from a loved one. Nothing is classier than a quality, antique handkerchief to have handy for all of those happy wedding tears. This is also one of the easiest and most subtle ways to incorporate a "something borrowed" — especially for brides who want a look that is new and uniquely hew own. Tuck it in a bouquet or hide it away in the décolletage for when the moment strikes (and remember — no ugly crying!).
