Consider Shoe Style

The style of your bridal shoe is very dependent on your dress’ style, along with your own personal style as well. Do you prefer a classic strappy sandal, or something more bold such as a peep toe pump? You can also match the fabric of your dress to your colorful bridal shoes such as silk or satin, or add extra details such as beading, florals or lace designs. 

Compliment Your Color Palette

When choosing a shoe color, it’s important to keep in mind your overall color palette. This includes your wedding colors, decor and style of your dress. Don’t be afraid to add a surprising pop of color with your shoes such as electric blue, a classic red or a metallic jewel tone that pairs with nearly everything. 

Playful Patterns

Another great option to consider when opting for colorful bridal shoes is a fun, playful pattern or print. This is most ideal if your wedding dress style is more simple and won’t clash with the pattern of your shoes. Florals are a popular go-to design, or you can choose a more bold print such as a geometric design, nautical stripes or animal print. We recommend matching some colors of the pattern to your wedding colors as well for a more cohesive bridal look.


While you do have more time allotted to shop for bridal shoes, you should aim to have your chosen pair in-hand for your very first alterations appointment. Not only does this allow you to see your full bridal ensemble together with your dress, shoes and any accessories, it’s also important for the tailor to hem your dress accurately with your heel height.

In the end, you should feel comfortable and beautiful in whichever colorful bridal shoes you choose for your special day. Looking for a dress to match your shoes? Book an appointment with us today and shop our selection of more than 600 dress styles!
