Okay, so your big day’s just around the corner and you’re weary of putting on those stilettos underneath your lehanga? Yes, it hurts! Those long hours of standing on your heels can take its toll on your back. Moreover, Indian weddings are not just about the wedding day and reception. Right from mehendi, sangeet and reception to functions at your in-law’s place after the wedding – It is a huge affair. Each of these ceremonies requires the bride to look ethereal. But with an aching back and tired legs it is dreadful, isn’t it?
At the same time we also know that it is your day, and you would want to do everything that can make you look stunning. Those pampering pre wedding beauty salon sessions with stress-relieving manicures, pedicures and facial massages say it all. Your bindi and maang tika to your outfit and footwear – each part is equally important for that final “wow” appearance. So what if we gave you a few footwear options that can add to the charm without causing the stress? Read on if you do not believe us!
Mojaris Or Juttis:
Go the royal way with a pair of beautifully embroidered juttis under your saree or lehanga. These ethnic flat shoes originating from Punjab and Rajasthan not only keep your legs relaxed throughout the reception, but also look gorgeous with your designer bridal outfit. For a grander look, opt for the ones with stone embellishments. Colors like red, golden, hot pink and silver can bring in the elegance.
Embellished Ballerinas For Weddings:
You thought ballet flats only look good with western wear? Think again! Stone studded cute ballerinas with a thin strap around your ankles can look equally exquisite. Try contrasting colors like bright reds under your golden lehanga or vice versa. You can also go for white ballet flats with flowers or a butterfly in stone work if your lehanga is pink or in shades of pink.
Kolhapuri sandals have a vintage classic feel to them and are also modern and edgy at the same time. Trust us; you’ll give yourself a pat on the back later for having invested on one such pair. You can slip in and out of them with almost any dress. They go well with your churidars and patialas as well.
Intricately designed crochet wedges are also a good option for painless bridal footwear. You can customize them with thin tie up strings with colored danglers at the end that contrast the color of your dress.
Rhine Stone Studded Flat Sandals:
Rhine stone studded footwear is so much in demand today! Go ahead and buy one for yourself. These can make for one of the best bridal footwear options in flats. They are comfy and make your feet look pristine at the same time.
Pointed Hollow Flat Sandals:
Lace Work Flats:
You can even choose to wear sandals with heavy work which can have multi-color stones and zari. This will accentuate your complete outfit. Choose the color carefully so that it doesn’t look odd on your feet and that it matches your personality too!
Always remember whatever you wear on your wedding; it’s not about what you wear, but how well you carry it that matters. So all the brides in the making out there, chose your footwear with care and opt for the ones that gel well with your persona. Happy footwear shopping!
