Contemporary brides are shelving classic white pumps, metallic sandals and dyed-to-match options in favor of high-end designer shoes for a look that’s full of color—think royal blue, red or pink—and regal from head to toe. It’s a trend that allows brides to show personality and make a bold statement. The best part? You can wear investment shoes long after the wedding, which is almost never true of the dress.
