Ask Bridalwave! – D’Orsay inspired wedding shoes

Readersshoe1_1"I’m in desperate need for shoes for my wedding in July. I am looking for D’Orsay style (I think) and about a 3"-4" heel. The problem is, that my dress is a sort of nude/cafe latte/oyster colour and all the bridal shoes seem to be white or cream or too gold." Donna

If you’re planning on wearing a dress that isn’t white, don’t limit yourself to looking at purely bridal shoe ranges. There are more than enough fancy shoes out there that can easily be transposed to weddings. The pair above are an ankle strap courts from Schuh. With etched leather uppers and a heel height of 4 inches they cost £49.99 at Viva La Diva

If you have any shoe or wedding related dilemmas do email me and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. In the mean time, lets see what else I found…

More bridal footwear here.


I also found these D’orsay inspired heels by Moda in Pelle. The uppers are satin and a gorgeous, rich cafe colour. The heels are also 4 inches and they have jewels on the vamp for extra glamour. Vontage heels, £59.99 Viva La Diva.


These elegant slingbacks are listed as cream, though to me they say oyster with that slight tonal difference. They are leather with a light pleat to one side and a slightly smaller heel at 3 inches. £40 from Grattan.


And finally, I bring you the strangely named Creeply, a neutral leather court. I think the scalloped edging and wispy chiffon bow give the shoes a whimsical touch. £75 at Faith.

  • creeply is nasty!

    I was hoping you could point me in the right direction regarding bridal shoes. I am wearing a diamond white dress with a pink sash that I was hoping to co-ordinate my shoes with, along with my jewellery. I have spent hours trawling through websites and I am having no luck. I would like to find something that I would wear again, probably a sandal, with some sparkle and most importantly a 3/4″ heel.

    I would be extremely greatful if you have any ideas.

    Many Thanks
