When most people think about comfort, wedding day attire doesn’t normally come to mind. There’s no reason it shouldn’t! Sure, those high priced crystal embellished heels that you couldn’t afford (and bought anyways) make you feel sexier, stand a little taller, and maybe even accentuate your legs …
However, after standing during the ceremony, and more standing at a guest receiving line that may stretch on for hours, a pair of light weight lace slip-ons may be just what your bridal tootsies need.
Enter Toms shoes.
You’ve likely heard of Toms as the shoe company that keeps on giving, literally.
What we love is that the price of a pair of Toms bridal shoes won’t make a huge dent in your wedding budget. That, and the delicate classic lace makes for a fantastic shoe shot. Hello — look at the gorgeous pics below!
Toms also make a wonderful bridesmaid thank you gift. What could be better: give a gift to your bridesmaids and give a new pair of shoes to a child in need.
I am convinced that this is the perfect wedding day slip-on. I’ve seen tons of real brides featured on L&L who opted to wear them on their wedding day. If you aren’t convinced, let’s delve a little deeper and explore the company and why you should purchase these delicate gems for your big day!
Why TOMS for Wedding Shoes?
Blake Mycoskie Ring Any Bells?
Didn’t think so. To make a long story short, he is the founder of Toms shoes and a pretty ingenious guy.
After a trip to Argentina in 2006, when he witnessed the hardships faced by children growing up without shoes, he was inspired to create a for-profit company that was sustainable and didn’t rely on donations.
From that point, the idea of One for One® was born. A business model that helps a person in need with every product purchased. So far they have provided over 60 million pairs of shoes to children since 2006.
That’s just amazing!
Are Toms Comfortable to Wear for a Wedding?
When looking at reviews from Amazon or Influenster, most reviewers agree that Toms are great shoes. With an average rating of 4.5 out of 5, you can almost guarantee that your tootsies will be thanking you at the end of the night.
While you might be inclined to think of back-breaking stilettos when it comes to choosing your wedding shoes, just think about all the reasons to wear TOMS instead.
Like, why wouldn’t you want to wear a comfortable shoe? You’ll be on your feet all day, followed by dancing all night. You want it to be the happiest day of your life, not the one filled with the most blisters.
Also, it’s really hard to say “No” to TOMS wedding shoes when they look as good as they do on the bride and groom
According to Toms’ website, their shoes run true to size and are only available in a medium width. They do recommend ordering the size you would normally wear in a casual shoe. As their shoes stretch slightly, if you are typically an in-between size shoe wearer, they suggest choosing the smaller size.
Toms as Bridesmaids Thank You Gifts
Want to ensure that all your ladies are up on the dance floor? Gift them a cute pair of TOMS to slip into after the ceremony. They make a fantastic gift for long after the wedding, and they are much more conducive for dancing the night away.
Toms for Groom and Groomsmen
Don’t forget about the groom and his groomsmen. For some grooms its all about the suit, but for others its all about the footwear.
How about gifting a pair of Toms to all your groomsmen, and get them to wear them for the big day — like the fun photo below from one of our real weddings.
This groom found himself a pair of tan leather Toms that were a little fancier than the traditional canvas Toms. And the rest of the tribe wore the tan traditional style of canvas Toms. Paired with fun socks, it makes for a great look!
Toms for Weddings
Featuring styles for brides, grooms, and the entire wedding party, the range boasts fabrics like petal grosgrain for women and black velvet for guys. Plus lots of sparkles for kids.
Free shipping on all purchases over $59+ and free easy returns within 60 days make it a no brainer. And, if you’re lucky you might even get a popup while on their website offering a discount.
Toms Customized Shoes
Toms doesn’t offer any service to customize their shoes. (Although that would be a fantastic service — hint hint Blake). There are however, many sellers on Etsy who do offer services such as hand painted customized TOMS.
