Pearls of Wisdom: Sassy or Classy?

Pearls of Wisdom are bits of info that industry professionals have shared with us, to share with you. We’ll pull from photographers, florists, event coordinators, fashionistas, business owners… and whoever else is beaming with creative ideas to share. Whether these pearls are to inspire, indulge, clarify or challenge, we invite you to take them or leave them, and tell us what you think! One wedding trend that lives on in 2010: Colored Bridal Shoes. We know that tradition says to wear white or ivory “dyed to match” heels… but then they never get worn again. Stepping away from tradition can sometimes be hard {if not for you, perhaps for your parents} but this trend is both sassy and classy.

Colored shoes can be a fun way to integrate your wedding colors into your bridal attire, show a peep of personality and get more bang for your buck. Pops of color can revitalize the traditional matrimonial black & white by coordinating the brides shoes, bridesmaid’s dresses, the groomsmen’s ties, cufflinks, even socks and {of course}the invitations. Indoors or outdoors, year round, this little detail can add a lot of personality to your special day!
