For a lot of brides-to-be, shoe shopping for their wedding can end up being a bit of a disappointment. On the most important day of your life, you want to skip down the aisle in the most fabulous pair of shoes ever made, but you may find yourself bombarded instead by cream satin, triangular toe monstrosities with a hugely unflattering heel. Technically there’s nothing wrong with this style of shoe, but if you’re after something a little less blah you’ll be really pleased to find out about Harriet Wilde wedding shoes.
It was lust at first sight when we clapped eyes on these beautiful babies. They’re more than just wedding shoes; they’re miniature works of art. If you pop into Perfect Day Bridal Rooms unannounced, there’s a really high probability that you’ll find at least one member of the team secretly wearing a pair of these gorgeous heels just to make ourselves feel like rock stars.
Designer Ruth Shaw launched Harriet Wilde on to the bridal scene in 2008. Far from the mundane and forgettable world of wedding shoes that preceded her arrival, Ruth’s passion lies in creating luxurious and stylish wedding shoes. Based in London, her collection boasts exquisite craftsmanship, detailed silhouettes, breath-taking embellishments and a signature heel that once tried on will not be forgotten.
There’s a school of thought that says hardly anyone will see your wedding shoes if you’re wearing a long wedding dress but we think that’s rubbish. If you’re wearing a stunning pair of shoes, you’re going to want to show them off! As with beautiful lingerie, an exquisite pair of shoes can have immeasurable psychological effects on a lady, so it doesn’t even matter who sees your shoes in fact, so long as they make you walk tall and feel like a million dollars.
And, if you’re not of a floor length persuasion for your wedding dress but prefer a shorter, tea length or prom style wedding dress, then you really, really must try on a pair of Harriet Wilde shoes as they will undoubtedly complete your big day look.
Whether you choose a beautifully elegant pair of lacy Mary-Janes or opt for a show stopping pair of platform court shoes with gentle cherry blossom embellishments cascading down the heel, there’s no doubting that the Harriet Wilde collection does for wedding shoes what Manolo Blahnik did for Carrie Bradshaw.
We’re lucky enough to have a selection of these fabulous shoes here at Perfect Day Bridal Rooms. You can try them on with your gown when you come for an appointment or fitting, or if you’ve already got your frock sorted you can just come shoe shopping! Do let us know when you want to pop in and we’ll have the whole line-up of superstar shoes waiting for you.
