We know that your Offbeat Brides love them some wedding shoe porn! Every week Ariel highlights a curated collection of wedding shoe choices. This week we're featuring something special: Our sponsor Ashbury Skies is an online shoes store that happens to have an exclusive collection of shoes by Jeffrey Campbell.
This is Offbeat Bride's archive of wedges posts.
I tend to wobble on any sort of stilleto heel, so wedges and platforms have always been the only way I've been able to function in an elevated heel. In addition to being generally more walkable, wedges have the added benefit of being lawn-friendly for those of you having your weddings outdoors — no need to think about sinking up to your ankles in the grass.
Look at me! I'm going to deviate from my rainbows and sparkles and platform pumps! I'm going to spend a morning doodling around in Ruche's collection of (gasp) classy footwear. CLASSY, YOU GUYS.
Y'all remember Ruche, right? I freaked out about them this spring, and they just launched their autumn bridal lookbook, so of course I've been poking around some more. And yes, they have shoes. CLASSY shoes.
Every once and a while I like to dive down into one specific shoe brand to get a feel for how they might fit for all sorts of different brides. This week, it's Rocket Dog shoes. Many of their styles are on the more casual end of the spectrum, perfect for beach brides or backyard weddings, but they've got a few heels that still have that high-style boomPOW for a more formal affair.
Of course, because it's me, there are several rainbow-striped shoes involved… but I think what y'all are going to like best is that NONE of these shoes is over $60.
For those of us who have issues walking in heels (and don't be fooled: I love to LOOK at insane heels, but god knows I can't walk in them!) wedges are the perfect solution. You get a little elevation, but with the advantage of a more solid sole — and often the assistance of a little platform.
Today I'm wrastling up a few of my favorite wedges. These run the gamut from the more casual, retro end of the spectrum (beach wedding? adorbz!) all the way to glitter-crusted neon space booties for your sci-fi midnight adventure wedding. Oh, and one pair of fuzzy mice.
What happens when a nerdy offbeat bride meets an Etsy seller who customizes shoes? You get these amazing Legend of Zelda wedding wedges. Warning: your eyeballs may not be able to take in all the awesomeness without there being permanent damage done.
We've got a DIY double-feature for you today. This time it's about one of our favorite topics: OMG SHOES! We've got a tutorial for those of you who'd like to give your new wedding shoes the vintage look and for those of you who want to give your shoes a blinging upgrade.
I think I had a little too much fun making this week's Monday Montage. It was such a treat to see the huge number of stunning photos submitted to the Offbeat Bride Flickr pool! So, as Monday tradition has it, I will now share my favesies with you! Enjoy the ravishing outdoor scenery, the couple portraits, henna'd up hands, mini owl cake-toppers and overall LOVE baby. Don't be shy, click on the photo to see more!
Well, it's Friday. That means it must be time for me to have my regularly scheduled freak out over wedding shoes. Wedding flats for brides who hate heels Another week for me to geek out on wedding shoes! Last week, I heard from several readers who were like, "Yeah sure cute — but… [more] This…
