Wedding shoe shopping in the digital age
Over the past few years, I’ve helped many of my girlfriends get ready for their weddings, so I know just how much goes into preparing for such an important event. Time is invaluable for brides-to-be, which is why shopping for your bridal shoes online can be a great option.
All your favourites at your fingertips
If you’re like me, you’ve probably got a few shoe brands that you know are comfortable and a perfect fit. Online shopping offers the chance to find these brands from the comfort of your home, or smartphone, at numerous websites. While all of the big department stores and shops have their own online stores, sites dedicated to online shopping, like Amazon or Asos, offer a variety of brands, easy search options and customer-friendly shipping and return policies.
A unique look
Choosing to shop online for your wedding shoes opens up a world of possibilities and the chance to wear shoes that are unique from what all the other brides are wearing this season. What better way to stand out from the crowd than buying handmade or vintage shoes? Check out Etsy, an online marketplace with shoes to fit the tastes and budget of even the pickiest bride.
While buying your shoes online is no substitute for the in-store experience of the top brands, it does increase the number of choices available to brides on a budget. Signing up for members-only shopping sites like Buy VIP and Showroom Prive and browsing online outlets like The Outnet or the sales sections of fashion search engines like Shop Style can offer brides-to-be a chance to follow in the footsteps of celebrity brides like Kate Moss and Shania Twain who wore designer heels on their big day.
Wherever you choose to shop online, make sure that you check out the shipping options and rates to your country, and order with plenty of time to send them back just in case they’re not everything you dreamt they’d be. Happy browsing!
