Remember if you are wearing a full length gown your guests will only occasionally catch a glimpse of your shoes so if you want to do something a bit quirky consider wearing a colour of shoe that compliments your day - most satin shoes can be dyed to match other colours within your day.
If the sole of your shoe is smooth and you have a fear of falling or slipping on the big day you can add friction by making thin cuts with a craft knife on the sole of the shoe.
An Evening outfit
Some brides want to keep their dress on for as long as possible, not even wanting to remove after the day is over and itís time for bed. Some on the other hand quite like the thought of having a different outfit altogether on the evening. Obviously, the world is your oyster - you can wear whatever your heart so desires however, consider that you may still want to be spotted as the bride at 50 paces. One option is to buy a wedding dress made from separates and buy a different skirt for the evening. Many designers will make short skirts or even trousers in the same fabric as most of their bodices. This way you can have the best of both worlds and make the most of your carefully picked dress.
