Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. Hopefully one which you will never repeat (for all the right reasons, we hasten to add) and you don't want it to be marred in years to come by the memories of sore and painful feet. This is why here at Henry Kaye, we believe that next to your wedding dress, your wedding shoes are one of the most important wedding purchases you will make. Get it right with a pair of stunning yet comfortable wedding shoes and you will sail from ceremony to honeymoon suite on a breeze of happiness. Get it wrong and you could find yourself wincing with every step you take!
To avoid this scenario, you need to give some thought to your wedding shoes. Good fit and comfort and are a must, along with glamour of course. Make sure you try on your bridal shoes and that they fit okay. There is nothing worse than trying to squeeze your feet into shoes that are too small just because they are gorgeous. All our comfortable wedding shoes come in sizes 3 to 8 so we are bound to have a pair that fits. Once you have then found the perfect pair of comfortable wedding shoes, make sure you wear them around the house in the weeks preceding your big day so that any stretching or wearing in is done before you get to the alter. As we know that comfort is key on such an important day, we have also made sure that most of our comfortable wedding shoes also have padding in the soles to give a little bit of extra protection to your feet on your big day.

If you must wear killer heels, then make sure you slip in a pair of Scholl Party Feet, clever little gel cushions, (yes, we do stock them!) to give yourself some protection. The highest heels we offer, 10cm, come with our stunning design, the Elle bridal shoes - Hollywood showstoppers with satin bow and diamante trimming.
If you still want some elevation, but 10cm is a centimetre too far, then we have several pairs of stunning bridal shoes which combine comfort with style. The Katie bridal shoes have the lowest heel we offer (unless you want to go for flatties that is) at 5cm. These comfortable wedding shoes are beautiful and elegant with an enclosed back, ankle strap, cutaway detailing and sparkling diamante trim on the front. The Olivia bridal shoes and Alisa bridal shoes both have respectable 7cm heels which are high enough to make you feel like a princess but not so high that you totter down the aisle at risk of doing a Naomi Campbell. They will certainly take you from ceremony to last dance in comfort!

If you're all for comfortable wedding shoes and are banning heels totally on your wedding day, our flat mule wedding shoes with just a smidgen of heel are classic enough to suit most dress styles or what about the Elizabeth bridal shoes? Perfectly on trend with their ballet pump styling, these comfortable, flat wedding shoes have added bling with diamantes on the front. If the sun's going to shine on you, our flat sandal wedding shoes with fine strap detailing will look beautiful, even on the beach - as will our diamante wedding toe post sandal. So you see, you don't have to sacrifice style to be comfortable all through your big day!

Or if you feel that you just won't feel glamorous enough for your big day without a pair of heels, than what about going with the best of both worlds? Invest in a pair of stunning showstoppers for the ceremony and wedding breakfast and then slip into a pair of comfortable flat wedding shoes for the dancing. Our ever popular ballet wedding slippers are the perfect choice, priced at £16.95, they are inexpensive enough to have as a spare pair. Just don't forget to order a size larger than you normally are. Or you could follow the route of all the A-listers and pop a pair of CocoRose London foldable ballet slippers into your wedding handbag. The ingeniuos design of these wedding ballet slippers means that they fold up small enough to fit in the little purse that comes with them and then when you are ready to slip into more comfortable wedding shoes, you can stow your heels safely away in the satin shoulder bag that is in the pocket. The perfect solution to all your wedding shoe comfort woes!
