- Consider comfort.
One of the most crucial things that you need to keep in mind when choosing your wedding shoes is comfort.

In addition to that, the color of your wedding shoes should also reflect your personality. For instance, if you have passion for design, then you should choose jewel clip shoes or a diamond embellished shoes. On the other hand, if you are an old school type of bride, you should ensure that choose shoes that have an old school touch but still looks stylish.
- Pick the right heel height.
Majority of Singapore brides prefer to go for the heels. If you also decide to go that way then you need to pick a heel height that you comfortably manage. Experts recommend that you should choose a heel height that you are used to wear. For instance, if you are used to wear 4 inch heel, then don’t even think of choosing a 5 inch heel because you will be very uncomfortable. If you are not used to wear very high heel, don’t experiment on your wedding because it will not go well with you.
- Consider the fabric of the shoes.
The two most common type fabrics that many brides choose for their weddings are silk and satin. However, that does not mean that you should also limit yourself to those two choices. When choosing a wedding shoe, ensure that you make your decision based on the fabric of your wedding dress as well as your personal taste. You need to pick a fabric that blends well with you wedding dress. You also need consider the weather condition when choosing the fabric of your wedding shoes.
- Think about the future.
When choosing a shoe for your wedding you also need to think about the future. Will you wear the shoes again after the weeding or are you planning to store them for good to give you good memories in future? If you are considering to wear the shoes again after wedding (which is normally the case with many brides) Ensure that you choose wedding shoes that can be worn in more than one setting.
- Consider the cost.
Everyone is on budget when preparing for a wedding. Although the price of the shoe should not be the determining factor when choosing your wedding shoes, it is very important to note that you can only buy shoes that you can afford. To get the best deal for your wedding shoes, ensure that you buy your shoe during an of peak season. Also buy from a shop that offers discount. Experts recommend that you only spend 10-15% of the amount you spent on your wedding dress to buy your wedding shoes. This means that if your wedding dress cost you $5000, then your wedding shoes should cost you between $500-750. If you are on tight budget, consider shopping in sites such as eBay. This is because many brides usually sell their once worn shoes or in some cases never worn wedding shoes at brilliant prices.
