You’ve found the perfect gown (cue ALL the heart eyes), you know exactly how you’re going to wear your hair… but it’s time to think about your wedding shoes. And where to start?! Finding that all important ‘finishing touch’ is the bride’s ultimate fashion quest and there are a number of things to consider. One of the most important things to take into account is… comfort.
It’s no lie that comfort is key – after all, you’re going to be wearing your wedding shoes for hours and hours, so you want to make sure they feel great, while looking stylish. And if you’re getting married in the upcoming season, you’ll need to find a pair that lend themselves the versatilities of the unpredictable autumn and winter weather. Luckily for you, here at Rainbow Club we have an extensive, yet carefully considered, selection of wedding shoes to choose from. Plus, our customisable service allows for those personal touches to ensure you find a pair of autumn or winter wedding shoes that feel like they were made just for you.
We’ve all been there – wearing high heels that hurt as soon as you put them on. And no one wants their feet to ache at any point on their wedding day, right?! That’s why we focus on the longevity and wearability of every heel we offer to our brides – as well as shoes that are undeniably luxurious. Here at Rainbow Club, we are renowned for our Bliss Comfort padded linings that are built within every shoe, offering the ultimate under, and around, foot comfort. If you’re not an avid heel wearer and you’re seeking that extra stability for your aisle style, we recommend browsing our bridal shoes that are designed with straps or block heels.
Fortunately, one of the hottest bridal trends to hit the scene currently is the block heel wedding shoe – they’re comfy, without compromising on style. The Rainbow Club collection offers anything and everything you could wish for when it comes to block wedding heels, including court shoes, slingbacks and even open toe heels. So, no matter what wedding dress you have or heel height you’re after, you’re guaranteed to find a block heel wedding shoe to match.
For brides who want to walk down the aisle with a touch of sparkle in every footstep, the Mia Block Wedding Heel has certainly got you covered. The dainty floral appliqué adds a romantic and ethereal touch to your wedding day style, which is the perfect choice for a country garden celebration.
If you want to channel those vintage vibes on your wedding day, look no further than the Madeline Block Wedding Heel, which features luxurious satin and elegant lace detailing. The Mary Jane shoe style remains in the spotlight as one of the most popular wedding shoes too!
A winter wedding lends itself perfectly to the ‘Something Blue’ tradition, with a cool elegant colour scheme of blue, ivory and silver hues. Incorporate a touch of blue with our Margot Block Wedding Heel, which can be fully colour customised to a colour of your choice. Their chic strap style also means not only are they comfortable to wear all day, but they can also be worn after your wedding – the perfect way to re-use your aisle style. Alternatively, why not add a touch of glamour to your bridal look courtesy of the Freya Block Wedding Heel? This divine pair of slingbacks have been crafted from ivory satin and are embellished with a silver crystal diamante detailing. The closed toe means they’re also ideal for the slightly chillier weather and if it does rain… your feet will remain cosy and dry!
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – sandals aren’t just for summer! Sandal block heels work wonderfully as transitional shoes while the seasons change, offering you extreme comfort from the very moment you put them on until the very last dance! The Blake Block Wedding Heel features a lattice-front, with a buckled ankle strap and a comfortable block heel. They are designed for brides who want to dance from day to night. Plus, you may still find during your autumn wedding that your feet get particularly warm, so an open toed shoe is always a great option.
When you’re picking the perfect pair for your feet, consider your venue and where you’re getting married, as this will certainly have an impact on the fashion decisions you make. For instance, if you’re having a crisp autumnal wedding in a marquee, chances are you’re going to have to do some alfresco strolling around the grounds in your heels. A pair of block wedding heels means you can walk around without worrying about your stilettos sinking into the ground – and therefore you’ll have no bridesmaids panicking around you! For brides who are tying the knot in an elegant country house, you’ll want a pair of bridal shoes to match. Our Carly Wedding Shoes are a classic choice, with an almond-shaped toe and handy (yet very delicate) ankle strap. Plus, the manageable stiletto heels mean you’ll have the perfect extra height if you need it!
On the topic of height, you may or may not be fully accustomed to donning a pair of heels. If you’re new to the heel game, we recommend browsing through our selection of lower heel heights to ensure you feel at ease walking down the aisle. Block wedding heels are generally much sturdier, offering brides stability, comfort, and style. From low heels to high heels with straps across the feet, you’ll find an array of heel heights to suit you.
The Shirley Wide Fit Block Wedding Heel is a low block heel with a delicate ankle strap – the perfect combination of chic and comfort.
If you want some serious height as you say, ‘I Do’, you’ll love our Savannah Block Wedding Heel. These retro-style heels have a subtle sparkle, courtesy of their chic diamante square buckle strap. Although they are the higher of our block heels, they are still very much a ‘wear-all-day’ look.
Don’t forget – all of our shoes are fully colour customisable so you can alter their shade to suit your wedding theme, colour scheme or individual style. Autumn and winter colour palettes are a wonderful opportunity to play around with colour palettes, from rich, jewel tone hues to elegant, icy shades. Don’t be afraid to stray away from tradition and opt for a colour that you adore.
Rainbow Club’s Top Tips for Choosing your Wedding Shoes
- Define your aisle style. Work out whether you want to go down the retro route, or if you’re looking for an outfit that is elegant and classic! You don’t want your dress and shoes to look to contrasting!
- Choose your wedding dress first. Your bridal footwear should complement every aspect of your dress, from colour right down to the smaller details.
- Ensure your shoes are totally comfortable when you try them on. Don’t just fall in love with how they look (although this is harder than it sounds when it comes to Rainbow Club bridal shoes, we’ll admit). You’ll be standing in these shoes all day, so they need to feel as great as they look.
- Embrace colour! Long gone are the days of having to wear traditional ivory or white shoes – if you want to wear colour-popping pink, you can! You can check out our handy colour customisation tool to find out more.
- Give yourself enough time to choose your wedding shoes. Your dressmaker will need the exact height of your shoes for those final fittings and to make any necessary changes to your dress. Plus, if you buy them several months ahead of your special day it will allow you to ‘break them in’ a little bit.
- Enjoy every second of shopping for your wedding shoes!
It goes without saying, no matter what time of year you are getting wed, always choose bridal shoes that you feel amazing in. We want to ensure you can walk down the aisle, dance all night long and catch up with your loved ones without worrying about your heels. We are proud to offer a huge collection of elegant wedding shoes that are of the highest quality, without the hefty price tag. We welcome you to get in touch with a member of the RC team if you’d like to find out more but, in the meantime,… happy browsing!
