What Shoes to Wear on Your Wedding Day

Are you are a bride in need for some shoe style inspiration? Well we have got a few tips and style ideas which could help choosing your heels more wisely.

  • Choose heels that are mid length (2 inches high) – it makes walking around locations much more comfier
  • Bring a cute pair of flats. For example, the Melissa flats with heart bow ties are a fabulous choice. Steer away from flip flops, the reason being is that sometimes when we want to capture some natural walking shots. Though it happens rarely, we just don’t want you to look back and cringe at the fact that you had worn your slippers instead of your heels
  • Slide in some heel slip ons to protect your feet from rubbing
  • Wear your new heels in at least three months ahead so you are confident walking in them
  • Fact: Though high heels make you look taller, it actually makes your legs look slimmer and gives you a lovely S-Shape when you are having your full body portraits taken

Engagement Ring

HuffPost Live recently opened up a debate about what sort of stone is best suited to an engagement ring, with one make-up artist declaring she was not interested in receiving a diamond ring. She sports a sapphire ring her now-husband gave her, citing her need for practicality taking precedence over her desire for a diamond.
