Flat Bridal Shoes for Becci, Becci Club was the Editor at Wedding Ideas Magazine

On your wedding day, what you wear on your feet is so important. Naturally, when you start thinking about your aisle style your first thought will be your wedding dress, but for the majority of the day you’ll be on your feet. That makes your choice of footwear equally important.

The last thing you want to be doing is sitting down, massaging your feet and attending to blisters, because your shoes are hurting. Investing in a good quality pair of shoes that are super comfortable is invaluable on this particular day. Whether you choose strappy sandals, soaring heels, ballet pumps or trainers, you’ll want to be able to keep them on for the duration of the day.

Most of the time you will find me in flat shoes, so the prospect of wearing a pair of heels for 12 hours on such an important day does feel a little daunting. That’s why I will wear a pair of flat bridal shoes for my evening reception – something I decided before I had even chosen my dress – even if I choose to step out in heels during the day. Flats are so easy to step into and forget about. As someone whose go-to shoe choice is usually flats, I know that they are the safer bet – plus our chosen venue, Tunnels Beaches in Ilfracombe, has a cobbled aisle to contend with! So, with that decision made the tricky part was finding a pair of flat wedding shoes that I felt looked chic and effortless.

Step in Wedding Converse! Our beachside venue calls for a trainer and what could be more perfect than a pair of personalised Wedding Converse? My fiancé has a matching pair, too! Both pairs have our wedding date customised along the back of one of the heels. The other heel says bride or groom accordingly.

The beach where we are tying the knot has a tidal swimming pool in the shallows. When the tide is out the wall of the pool is just exposed. I have seen stunning photographs of couples walking along the wall, posing romantically or helping each other along. I really want to recreate these (fingers crossed the tide will be on our side!) and our Wedding Converse will be the perfect footwear choice for this moment. Our wedding will take place over a long weekend, so I can wear these flat bridal shoes in the following days and on my honeymoon, too.

The little details like footwear really do matter and my wedding shoes will be the stars of the big day, I am certain! If you can’t decide between heels and flats, stilettos or flip-flops, block heels or trainers, my advice? Invest in them all!
