With the events of the past two years, couples' views on planning their wedding have changed. With more people opting for a simple registry office wedding, a small civil service followed by a larger wedding reception or a city hall ceremony before jetting off to your destination wedding, there’s much more flexibility when deciding how to do your special day.

Most registry office weddings are usually in the city centre, so you’ll likely be doing a little bit of walking, whether that’s walking to the ceremony or finding somewhere to have a celebratory drink after saying ‘I do’. You’ll need a pair of comfortable shoes for your special day, all Charlotte Mills wedding shoes are handcrafted with comfort features such as latex padding, block heels and a light and flexible sole. Allowing you to walk down the aisle with ease. 

With less ‘rules’ on what to wear and how to plan your registry office wedding, you have many more options to choose from when deciding on your outfit. See below for some bridal outfit ideas.

Who says wedding dresses have to be floor length with a huge train? If that style isn’t very you, why not choose a midi dress that’s just as bridal. Choose an Ivory classic midi dress that makes you feel like the best version of yourself. Not to mention the benefit of wearing a midi dress is that they show off your shoes! Pair with your choice of bridal shoes in your preferred heel height, we offer our signature styles in low heel, mid heel, and high heel.

CM Real Bride Polly chose our mid block heel Ida shoes. Crafted in butter soft ivory leather, featuring a comfortable block heel and a statement tulle bow to the peep toe.

Brands that do great midi dresses are… Constellation Ame, Reformation, Self Portrait

A small registry office wedding seems like the perfect opportunity to wear something a little against the grain, whether that’s a chic bridal suit or a cool bridal jumpsuit. Stick to ivory to still get that bridal look and style with a sassy pair of wedding shoes and bouquet. 

CM Bride Lola styled her cool bridal suit with our pearl embellished Henrietta heels. Pearls scattered across the peep toe vamp give you that much needed bridal detail and delicate cross over ankle straps keep you secure whilst walking down the aisle to day I do. Henrietta is also available in a mid heel, just search 'Henri' on the website.

Styling a bright outfit with comfortable block heels

Not one for neutral tones, if brighter colours are more ‘you’ then this is what you should be wearing whilst you say ‘I do’! Wear your favourite shade and pair with a comfortable pair of block heels, whether you’d like to style a pair of shoes that are adorned with pearls or a fanciful bow, choose a pair you’d be able to wear again after your city hall wedding. That way each time you take them out of their shoebox to re-wear them you’ll be reminded of your special day.

With such a statement dress, like this pink sequin number, Nina opted for a more classic shoe. George Pearl features the CM signature crushed pearl glitter and our super comfortable block heel. These shoes have the ultimate re-wearability factor, they're so classic they'll be easy to pair with any number of outfits for future special occasions.

Brands that do bright bridal outfits we love are… Rewritten, Needle and Thread, TH&TH
