Whether you are opting for a traditional or a less formal event then the most important components of your wedding day wardrobe will be the footwear you choose to wear.
It’s worth taking some time over selecting your wedding shoes as not only must they compliment your chosen outfit and look spectacular, they must also be functional and, above all, comfortable! You will be on your feet for much of the day and it’s therefore very important that you find a shoe with a good fit.
Once you find the perfect pair of shoes you will probably want to keep them in pristine condition for the big day. Whilst this is understandable it’s also a good idea to wear your shoes as often as possible before the wedding to ensure you get the most comfort on the day itself.
To stop your shoes becoming scuffed while you ‘break them in’ ensure that you only wear them indoors and use an old sock as an outer covering (it may look a bit odd but will stop them from getting marked). For leather shoes, apply a little neutral colour shoe cream as soon as you get them. This will help to soften the leather and it’s a good idea to repeat a couple of times before the day.

Rainbow Club Designer Bridal Shoes
Designer shoes have long been associated with stunning quality and design – just think Jimmy Choo, but until now many of them have also proved unwearable for long periods unless you happen to be Victoria Beckham. However Rainbow Club are specialists in providing gorgeous shoes that are as comfy as your pair of old slippers. So how do they do it? Their Head of Design has worked with top designer Jimmy Choo and has 20 years of experience producing the finest quality of shoes. She lends her professional expertise to ensure that each shoe is unique and utterly chic and stylish. Her designs are then handmade from only the highest quality of materials to give you the perfect fit – like slipping your foot into a soft leather slipper.
Their award winning wedding shoes are only available through selected stores so you know that when you choose your perfect pair, it’ll be like choosing shoes that were made especially for you, particularly when all Rainbow Club wedding shoes can be hand dyed in a colour to match your outfit.
