What girl doesn’t love a gorgeous pair of sparkling shoes, especially on her wedding day. Many of us dream of slipping into a pair of our favourite designer brands and walking up the aisle ‘Cinderella style’ in a perfect pair of princess pumps – but getting married abroad can introduce a whole new set of demands which are definitely worth considering.

Here are our thoughts on choosing the perfect footwear for your big day!

Beach Feet

Beach ShoesMany of our couples opt for a magical beach ceremony – getting married with the sparkling Mediterranean as your backdrop really is a dream come true. Obviously high-heels are a no-no here as sand, towering heels and an elegant walk down the aisle just don’t mix!

Many of our stylish brides choose super boho-style thong type sandals, beautifully detailed flip-flops or even bare feet for their beach nuptials – these are perfect for an Ibiza wedding and match the relaxed island style beautifully.

Don’t Forget the Guests

Its a great idea to provide optional flip-flops for guests who want to get into the beach spirit and feel the sand between their toes.

Designer Dreams

If you have always dreamt of donning a pair of Jimmy Choo’s or luxury Laboutin’s on your big day – don’t worry, Princess shoes can still work either at the reception or, if the heel is sensible, sandal or peep toes can still work a treat on the beach.

One of our super-stylish brides actually wore these show-stopping Manolo Blahnik’s for her beach wedding last season… I love the gold tones and the big jewel buckle. It was like a sunset on her feet!

There are so many fantastic shoes out there for you to choose from, but remember to always wear your shoes-in at home before your big day to insure no blisters – but , don’t worry if you are a Ma Cherie bride my team will always be armed with band-aids and cream and will come to your rescue all day long!
