14 Ways to Dress Up A Simple Pair of Shoes
Is you wedding day coming up soon? Are shoes the next thing to tackle on the wedding planning checklist?
Maybe you’ve already bought a beautiful pair of satin pumps, or perhaps you already have a pair of go to oldies-yet-goodies in the closet. Either way, if you feel like your shoe choice needs spicing up, you’re in luck!
We’ve found 14 ways to dress up a simple pair of shoes that will give your heels a little something special — taking them from basic to absolutely wedding-worthy!
Heart-Shaped Sole Grips
A new pair of shoes should always get broken in long before strutting down the aisle. More importantly, test the soles of the shoes on different types of surfaces beforehand. If your soles aren’t scuffed and there is a chance of a slippery surface, you could find yourself taking a tumble to the ground.
Be on the safe side and put Heart-Shaped Grips on each shoe sole. The grips serve a dual purpose:
- Keeping you safe and upright
- Handy for cute photo ops like the one below!
Decals for Your Shoes
Shoe decals are another great way to have fun during your bride and groom photo session.
Write something meaningful on the soles such as your names and your wedding date, or I-Do and Me Too.
Who doesn’t want a little bling for the top of their shoes?!
Attach a pair of fancy shoe clips. Shoe clips are the best way to spice up even the most basic shoes. And, after the wedding is said and done the clips can be worn in a variety of ways for other occasions.
