Goody Two Shoes

  |  By Nicole Keen


This post is dedicated to my colleague, Jenn, who just found her perfect wedding shoes during an impromptu lunchtime jaunt to the mall! They're beautiful, and so totally her! But for those of you ladies who are still searching for the ones, here are four helpful tips from Brooke Hyden, style guru and visual merchandising strategist for

1) Make sure your heels are the right height. Consider the length of your dress (a long gown should just skim the ground) and your mister's height in comparison to yours. Think about your wedding photos—you don't want to tower over the rest of your party, nor do you want to get lost in the crowd!

2) Match your shoes to your wedding style. Stilettos may not be the best choice for an outdoor ceremony, and flip-flops are way too casual for a formal affair.

3) Try colour for your wedding shoes. White, ivory, gold and silver will always be in style, but brightly coloured shoes are definitely on the rise. This is your chance to splurge on an unforgettable "something blue."

4) Pick shoes that are comfortable for you. If you've never worn platform pumps now is definitely not the time to try them on for size. Stick to a heel height and shoe style you have worn often in your day-to-day life.

Happy shoe shopping, ladies!
