Check out Startrite for cute ballet slippers and shoes with the most minimal heels. The range is limited but they are fully dyeable so you could match them to a favoured party dress later. Prices start at £15 (‘May’ on the left) from junior size 5.
Usually brides spend so much time picking out their dress that the footwear situation gets a tad neglected. Throw in the fact that you’ll be spending most of the day on your feet or being spun around the dance floor by your over zealous new hubby and it’s likely that those towering white stilettos – that you’ll only wear once – won’t be all that comfortable.
So what’s a girl to do? She gets herself down to Gina of course. These chic cream silk satin peep toes have a neat bow on the vamp with heels of 85mm. Priced at £280 we reckon you would carry on wearing them even after the big day.
Not so much shoe watch as boot watch this week with these Lola boots from Wedding Shoes Direct. The lace up victorian style would make a great alternative to the more traditional court. There is no need for toes to freeze or to sacrifice fashion in our not quite spring weather, not to mention the freak snow showers we’ve been experiencing over the last few days.
They come in sizes 3- 8 (inc. half sizes) and are £99.99
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.

There’s something about shoes that is just wonderful – they are works of art, supreme little pieces of engineering that cost a bomb and we have to have them even if we wear them only once. Oh wait, that’s just me.
