It will not be out of place to remind you that one should give equal importance to the normally ignored aspect of bridal shoe selection when the other items have ample selection time devoted to them. The reason for such indifference may be related either to the shoes getting covered under wedding gown or to the negligible range to make a selection from that is offered by stores.

These may be the reasons for plain satin pumps being common bridal wear. But, a little enterprise can avoid plain and ordinary shoes by giving them a distinctively elegant and novel appearance. Apart from using your imagination, one would require some items of decoration to give the ordinary shoe an extraordinary look. To begin with, the shoes need to be purchased. The first option is to go for a plain dyeable white pair of bridal shoes which can subsequently be dyed to the colour of the gown. The other option is to buy the matching coloured shoes off the shelf.

The decoration of the purchased pair ensues thereafter. One can choose from sequins, pearls, ribbons, silk flowers and lace to beautify the ordinary shoes. One should follow the method and material of the design on the gown when decorating the shoes. The pearls and tulle or only lacework on the gown could prompt one to go for the same when decorating the shoes. The end result would give the pair the look of special designer shoes because of the uniformity of the gown with the shoes. Similar treatment can be applied to the ornaments, too.

One can also control the tenure of the decoration by choosing between the temporary and the permanent. The former demands attachment of the decorations on the shoes with the help of removable shoe clips which can be procured from speciality shoe shops or craft stores dealing with bridal decoration. A hot glue gun will be needed for the latter option.

Fabric or cardboard is first fixed to the shoe clip. The decoration of the fabric or cardboard base should not leave any blank space. The shoe clips can be clipped onto the shoes after finishing the decoration. They can be detached whenever one wants the shoes to be plain and ordinary.

The front toe area of the shoes is the most commonplace for decorations including pearls and sequins, ribbons and rosettes, and lace and small flowers. There is no rule to prohibit anyone from decorating the backward heel area of the shoes or the straps, but these needs care to decorate. One might like the entire surface decorated or decorate both the shoes in a similar and symmetrical manner.

A simple process such as the above deserves a try to change the getup of the bridal shoes from the ordinary to designer. Shoes, too, merit equal attention since they can complement or mar the appearance of the impressive attire of the bride. Shoes designed by herself would give an exclusive look and make any bride happy. After all, creation breeds satisfaction
