LET’s get real. As much as high heels mark the quintessential signature of womanhood, they can be quite a pain. For some of us, it only takes one pair to hit the ultimate breaking point.
Ladies, allow me to say this — it’s not wrong if you want to advocate for the “flat brigade” during your wedding day.
Even if “beauty is pain”, do you really want to stress your back and suffer knee aches after hours of looking pretty?
No offence to those who make wearing 12cm stilettos look as effortless as walking on clouds but not everyone is blessed with supermodel discipline and posture.
For brides who value comfort, there is really no reason to sacrifice style either as there are fabulous and elegant flat options made exquisitely by the label Christy Ng.
And you can also find some gorgeous selections of kitten (to mid) heels in the label’s line-up.
This pair ensures you walk in grace, style and comfort. It has silky satin glamour with a peep-toe and single elegant bow design at the front. Available in silver, pink and gold, you will need to pre-order your choice before you strut down the aisle in it.
These pre-order limited edition pink slip-in knotted mules are perfect for the sophisticated bride. It has a satin finish and a 1.3cm heel with comfortable fully padded foot bed. It features a pointy sleek silhouette that gives the illusion of elongated legs - just make sure that the back of your train covers your feet to avoid exposing your bare heels when you walk.
If you really want to enjoy your day without worrying about knackered feet, the Yuki will guarantee it but with added style and confidence. Handmade using the finest fabrics, this kitten heel features an intricate floral lace pattern on the body of the shoe with open inner sides that are fully padded for comfort — a great choice for a classic white look.
Avoiding the sky-high stiletto? There’ll be no hobbling down the aisle in these ballerina flats. This handmade design features a pointed toe-cap with matching lace overlay while the body is finished in a silky satin fabric and it’s ideal for a garden or beach wedding. Promising maximum comfort throughout the day, wearing them with your wedding gown will be a dream.
The Lauretta has chunky kitten heels that reflect the elegance of the roaring 20s when heels were predominantly more sensible. That said, it doesn’t mean the design falls short on style as it features glimmer and shine (that come in variations of gold, silver and pewter) that’s ideal not only for a wedding ceremony, but also formal dinners and special occasions.
A bit of sparkle will add some personality to a simple bridal look. These glamorous metallic glitter courts feature 6.35cm d’orsay heels and are elegantly designed using a dreamy mix of synthetic materials and cow hide. The choice of dusty lavender hue is a slight step up from the usual neutral tones of many bridal shoes. It also comes in shades of pewter and midnight blue.
SOMETHING FOR THE GIRLS
Thought we forgot about the bridesmaids and flower girls? These ballerina pumps offer a 2.54cm wedge heel featuring beautiful French lace overlay and a quaint side bow design. The design is available in shades of white and dusty aquamarine (with a slight seafoam tint).
