Glorious Bridal Shoes

Shoes play a big role in the wedding. We all know about the tying of shoes to the back of a car. This seemed to evolve from the Tudor custom where guests would throw shoes at the newlywed couple. It was considered lucky if they or their carriage were hit. This sounds more like a crowd trying to run someone out of town. A custom that is a bit confusing.

This above customs is a bit whacky by today's standards, but one ancient custom from the Sudan is still practiced today. In Sudan, mehndi is displayed primarily by married women on their hands, fingertips and feet. This is the art of body decoration through henna design. The designs can be very elaborate on the hands and feet. Designs give meaning to peace and kindness will also be worn during births and other celebrations.

So as you can see feet and shoes have a lot of meaning to the wedding, but today we just want a fly shoe to match a fly dress. This can be a tough search and I want you to put your best foot forward. Ahead is a list of shoe companies with wide widths, hand painted, and just off the chain fabulous shoes. This is the start to your big step down the aisle.
