For anyone who’s ever heard the eternal words "I’m getting married! Will you be my bridesmaid?", you’ll be fully aware of the horrendous puff-sleeve dresses in furniture-like patterns, and more importantly, the ugly shoes that immediately spring to mind. However, you might be lucky enough to be allowed to pick the shoes yourself. If not, tap the bride-to-be on the shoulder and send her Shoewawa-wards. Here’s their rundown of the must-have shoes that are wedding compatible, suitable for brides, bridesmaids and wedding guests.
