We need to talk about shoes…

High heels look great, but with all the dancing, walking around greeting guests and everything else the event entails, high heels can become your worst enemy.

Salvation is to be found in amazing and stylish kitten heel wedding shoes that are equally, if not even more chic than high heels, but bring about less discomfort and pain.

Dance your heart out, it’s your big day and you deserve to celebrate it and do it in the type of shoe that will be your best friend and support.

The perfect dress…

Now, this is something that you need to think about months and months ahead.

Once you’ve set the date you need to go scouting for the perfect wedding dress.

Now, the one mistake many brides tend to make is to choose a dress that is gorgeous but completely impractical.

Look for the best of both worlds; something that will be flattering on your body type and leave everyone in awe as you walk down the aisle, but also something that will not constrain you, something that will allow you to move, dance and breathe as well.
