Top Wedding Shoes, What Makes Them #WeddingPerfect and Affordable Alternatives

Does it feel like lately all brides are wearing same shoes? If you have noticed this in the wedding world then you’ve been paying attention to the wave of what we are calling the top Wedding Shoes. There is something about some particular shoes that just scream “bridal” and both the shoe designers and the brides know this. Yes, we are talking about the Badgley Mischkas, Manolo Blahniks and Co. These are clearly the top Wedding shoes currently (and have been for the past few years), and to be honest,  it appears as though they would be for a while.

So what about these shoes are so attractive to brides more than the average pair of shoes on a regular day? What makes a pair of shoes more suitable for a wedding than a regular outing? We are thinking features such as signature brooches with jewels, glitter covered shoes that can pass for the modern day Cinderella, ruffles which are as feminine as a bride can get, and a few other features you would notice. Let’s not forget the textures play a role too; hello satin!
