After a wedding has been and gone the bride’s dress is often cleaned, boxed and stored, if not sold. But there are certain elements of the attire that can be worn again, including the shoes and jewellery, and so as we see it, these are areas worth spending a little extra time on.
In terms of footwear, obviously style is key, but then so is comfort – of all days, your wedding day is not one that you want to be hobbling around on. We therefore advise looking to the experts in bridal footwear who take into consideration a bride’s needs when putting together their collections. One such designer that you ladies can rely on for style and wear-ability is our wonderful Sponsor Paradox London Pink.
Boasting a broad choice of shoe styles for both the bride and her maids, there are various fabrics, colourways and details to pick from, and even the option of dying certain satin designs to complement your exact colour scheme. Furthermore, comfort technology is paramount to the designs and so all include comfort pads, memory foam cushioning and breathable lining, to keep you dancing all night long.
To fuel your inspiration, we’re taking a look at the latest collection from Paradox London Pink today and hearing more from the team on their fine footwear options…
Can you give us a brief overview of the new collection?
paradox london pink say: The new collection encompasses a style for every occasion. Shoes that you can wear for your big day, or any day after that.
What are the main colours, fabrics and details used in the collection?
The collection sees the use of traditional bridal ivory satin with new shades of pale blues and blush. Our occasion styles come in various glitter textures and metallic hues.
What type of brides would you say the new collection will appeal to?
The collection appeals to the fashionable bride that does not want to compromise on comfort. All our styles feature comfort padding.
Which shoe out of the collection would you suggest for a bride wanting to make a real statement?
A real statement shoe this season is Alandra, and if you really want to make a statement go for it in the red satin. It is simply divine.
And which shoe would you suggest for a bride wanting to keep their look traditional?
Radiance is a classic Mary-Jane style with a slim block heel for stability and a gentle almond toe, perfect for those wanting an elegant look. It matches vintage and modern dresses, making it a real style staple.
What are the key considerations for Paradox London when putting a new collection together?
We always look to the upcoming fashion trends and translate them into wearable styles. We aim to make shoes that can be worn again and again, not just once on your wedding day. We are constantly sourcing new fabrics and trims to keep the collections looking fresh and on trend.
What sizes are Paradox London shoes available in and what is the price range of the new collection?
All our shoes are available in a 36-41 (3-8) and a large selection are available in a 35(2) 42(9) and 43 (10).
What would be your top tip to brides when choosing their shoes for their big day?
Our top tip would be to choose a style similar to what you are used to wearing. Once you have chosen your dream shoes wear them around the house so that you are used to them on your feet. We do plenty of flats or sandals if you fancied changing into some dancing shoes later on in the day, though our high heels do have comfort padding, so you won’t need to kick them off at the end of the night!
What are the key trends in bridal footwear currently and what is your most popular shoe for brides?
Gorgeous trims and beautiful lace have been the biggest trend in bridal footwear and the addition of a block heel. Our current most popular bridal shoe is Indulgence, the super high platform that has the most beautiful pearl and diamond applique detail. It’s a real show stopper.
