One of the most fun parts of creating customized wedding shoes is getting to work with a bride with a really original idea. A bride that is creative and adventurous and wants her wedding shoes to be every bit a special as her wedding day. Over the last six weeks, we've been working with Allison on a dreamy wedding shoe, carefully designed to incorporate her wedding theme, an enchanted forest. Allison first contacted us in mid-March with some photos of her wedding dress, her flowers and some other accent pieces that would all be a part of bringing her dream wedding together. After we received her photos and her story, we went straight to work on her custom wedding wedges, which we decided would be a low wedge heel, elegant and light in ivory satin, with a flower bouquet adornment made of satin ribbon flowers and other accent pieces made to match her wedding flowers and the overall theme of the venue and a row of silver-backed crystals along the wedge of the shoe to add some additional sparkle. We finished it all up with a green and champagne ribbon sash around her ankles which tied to the colors in the flower adornment. The end result? A fairy tale wedding shoe, perfect for a ceremony along the Mississippi and a reception at the Grand Oaks Mansion!
