If there’s one thing that rivals my passion for weddings, it’s footwear. I’ll admit it. I may have a problem. But there’s something about slipping into an amazing pair of pumps that makes you feel so very glamorous and sexy—even if you’re feeling fumpy everywhere else.
Given my dual passions, I’ve always been on the lookout for great bridal shoes—seeing a smart swatch of blue or pink peeking out from under your dress, to me, is the perfect pop of color. But my biggest interest has always been the bridesmaids’ shoes. Call me traditional, but I love when the bridesmaids march down the aisle in matching, dramatic pumps.
My interest was piqued this past weekend when I was at a wedding at the McNamara Center on the U of M campus. As I watched the bridesmaids strut their stuff, I noticed that the soles of their matching black heals complemented the wedding colors: the dresses were a slate grey and the soles were a shocking pink, which were the two colors that dominated the weddings palate. I was obsessed. The fun added twist really showed me that the bride was all about the details.
