Bridal Shoes - Satin Ballet Slippers Are In
Ok, before you give me a funny look, let me explain. Firstly, I’m not saying heels are out of fashion.
On the contrary. However, ballet slippers have always had an element of fantasy and most of us owned a pair as children. Remember dancing around in them while wearing that frou-frou dress grandma bought you? That’s right, and you felt like a princess, didn’t you.
Well, guess what? They still look pretty cool, and they have benefits you may not have considered. This is your wedding day, not the Jones’. You get to dress however you want – and your comfort is important. The last thing you want on your wedding night are aching feet and a cranky disposition.
- Taller than the groom?
Even if you’re the same height in barefeet, you’re going to tower of your man if you’re wearing heels. Some women don’t care, and some women do. If this is an issue for you, ballet slippers are an excellent resolution. You won’t loom over your husband in the photos, and your feet will still look lovely.
- Tootsie problems?
This one’s a bit obvious, but if you have issues with your feet, cramming them into point toed shoes is going to be a nightmare. There’s no point in putting yourself through agony just to get a few extra inches going. Comfy flats are the way to go, and ballet slippers are one of the best options you have.
- Back problems?
If you suffer from scoliosis or have suffered an injury, high heels are going to take their toll. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to be miserable and in pain. Wearing comfortable flats will prevent the major aches that heels would subject your body to. And you’ll still feel feminine despite not wearing heels.
- Not just for the bride! You can get these for the bridesmaids as well. The material is dyable and can be made to match that lovely pea-green dress you’re making your best friend wear.
- You can always order these and have them waiting for you at the reception. Nothing wrong with walking down the aisle in heels and then partying it up in slippers. Your bridesmaids will love you for it.
- Buy them online – they are cheap! I’ve seen them for 35 bucks a pair.
- They make great souvenirs – tie the straps together and drape them across a dresser mirror.
