As we are now past the half way mark for 2011 wedding season (Labor Day is right around the corner!!!), we thought it would be a good time to take a look at wedding shoe trends we've been seeing lately.
Top three colors with a bullet:
2. Creams or nudes
3. Vibrant colors, the ever popular blue, but also reds and pinks
Top three details or styles of shoes:
1. Things that bling (did we mention our favorite color is shiny), rhinestones and other gems on the toe vamp or that cover the full shoe, as well as decorative silver, copper or gold toned shoe materials
2. Pearls or studs of some sort on the front vamp or that cover the full shoe. Also we're still seeing the material flower details on the vamps that we started to notice last summer...glad to see those are still popular. Similarly, we're now seeing more ruffle details over the toes as well.
3. Flats! Yes, ladies, sandals, flats and ballerina style slip-ons are making a big move this summer. We're especially seeing this look with brides that are taller (or would be taller in high heels) than their grooms.
Here's the roundup highlighting the biggest trends we have been seeing in our recent weddings:
And, for the reception or after-party:
Hot designer styles:
If you ever wrote notes on your sneakers in high school, then maybe you will also like having secret messages or words on the bottoms of your wedding shoes? They can be inspiring, sweet, or just plain fun, and make for unique pictures. You can make your own designs, or find some wedding-themed ones that are ready-made to stick on your shoes. Bride Stefanie sported these cute "I Do" gems under her souls.
