Shoes for 5 Types of Brides

Bridal shoe blog

It is officially wedding season! It's that time of year when it seems like your calendars are filling up with a wedding almost every other weekend. Which yes can be a little hectic. But it's 10 times crazier for the bride-to-be. After months of planning and ensuring every detail is just right, brides get one shot to make their day just as they've envisioned. So much thought goes into everything from the venue, the theme, invitations, food, and most importantly the dress. But of course, we can't forget about the shoes!

Sometimes the bride's shoes can be an overlooked detail. But they are arguably just as important as finding your dream wedding dress. When you think of wedding shoes, it's usually pumps or heeled sandals in shades of whites and nudes that automatically come to mind. But with more brides stepping out of the "traditional" comfort zone of weddings, they're opting for shoes that fit their unique style and theme.

Heel Boy wants you to have a "you're the one" moment with your shoes! Discover our different styles of shoes to match the different types of brides below. There's sure to be something for every woman!



For the Classic Bride









1. Sam Edelman Elise, 2. Ted Baker Hulia, 3. Vince Camuto Renny, 4. Sam Edelman Odila

 For the classy bride who is sticking to the more traditional realm of weddings. Pumps and heeled sandals in white or nude offer a classic colour palette to match your dress and wedding. For the classic bride, this is the perfect chance to incorporate your “something blue” into your shoes.



 For the Grand Bride

More is never enough for the over-top-bride. They want the creme de la creme for their wedding. Of course they need shoes that will make just as much of an impact on their guests as the whole wedding. Heels with intricating cutout designs and embellishments add interesting details to your shoes. Add some extra sparkle to your wedding by wearing dazzling shoes that will shine just as much as you on your special day.



For the Easy Going Boho Bride

1. Shoe the Bear Yasmin, 2. Ted Baker Keelia, 3. Chinese Laundry Gemmy, 4. Intentionally Blank Willow3

The chilled and relaxed boho bride wants shoes that won't draw too much attention to them, yet are still stylish. A true bohemian is defined as a wanderer, so it's important the shoes are comfortable enough to withstand the long night ahead. Easy slip on mules are perfect for a boho bride's laid-back personality yet offer effortless style. Sneakers are also a fun choice. There's also the risqué option of going barefoot, reserved for the true free-spirited bohemians.



For the Beach Bride

Heels and sand are never a good combination! If you're having a destination wedding, sandals are the perfect shoes for a beach bride. Flat sandals that are easy to walk in, breathable, and still look cute? Sign me up!



For the Bride with Unique Tastes

This is for the untraditional bride who isn't afraid to take risks. A wedding is a great chance to incorporate your personality and shared interests between you and your partner. It becomes unconventionally your own and even more sentimental. Based on our moodboard, a rock n' roll wedding looks insanely fun, and who wouldn't want to wear a leather jacket? Add some edge with boots or bold silver statement shoes.



Of course we didn't forget about...

The Bridesmaids!

1. Nine West Emmala, 2. Sam Edelman Hazel, 3. Keds By Kate Spade Champion Glitter, 4. Sam Edelman Kenz

A group of special ladies who are honoured to be by your side to see you marry the person you love. With bridesmaids there are many different avenues you can take. Nude shoes work perfectly with whatever colour the bride chooses for her bridesmaids' dresses or you could opt for a punch of colour. We've also got some easy going options if that style better matches your day. Lastly we don't think there's a better way to end the night than dancing away in a pair of sneakers. Keds make a great thank you gift for the support your bride tribe has provided and best of all you can pick-up all the same colour or mix-and-match with our variety of glitters (including a white pair for yourself).

Plus with these inclusive dresses from Henkaa Bridal, they'll be sure to fit all shapes and sizes. They're even convertible and can be worn different ways to best flatter your figure.
