Bridal Sandals

Bridal sandals for summer and destination weddings

Wedding sandals

It’s official…destination weddings are on the increase! Greece, Turkey…anywhere hot and sunny is the place to hold your ceremony and reception for 2013-2014. The trend for moving your party abroad is particularly popular with younger brides who quote cost as the main factor in making this decision. So, with a lower budget event, all the more left to spend on…well, the brides outfit of course!

Summer and destination brides tend to opt for lightweight, floaty dresses – particularly one-shoulder numbers or anything with a Boho or Grecian touch! Accessories might be minimal for this bridal look but they do need to be right…choosing shoes, jewellery and tiara that are easy to wear, comfortable and delicate is essential! Perhaps a headpiece made with fabric and bead detailing rather than a comparably heavy, solid metal headband. A thin delicate cubic zirconia bracelet with matching studs rather than a large, statement necklace set and bridal sandals with plenty of straps and a comfortable heel height.

Bridal sandals with straps, flats or strappy heels are best suited to summer weddings and weddings abroad. Brides need maximum comfort in hot climates but there is nothing wrong with a touch of added glamour – it is your wedding day after all and in addition to feeling comfortable, brides want to feel beautiful as well! Choose from a range of ankle strap sandals – such as Benjamin Adams Alba, Party by Pink – crossover strappy peep-toes, Precious – a two-part diamante encrusted shoe or Heaven – a flat, diamante detail gladiator sandal ideal for a beach ceremony!

Don’t forget, even if you choose a practical pair of pumps, you can always transform your look with a pair of crystal heels for the evening reception!
