As I'm sure you know, at Charlotte Mills we feel comfort is one of the most important factors to consider when purchasing your wedding shoes, and why we never compromise on comfort for style. It is possible to have both, just look at our latest collection!
After years of creating and designing shoes for our brides we've realised that our block heels are the most popular choice for our brides, which is why we have only released block heels in our 2021 range. Not only are they more comfortable than a stiletto heel, they also offer more stability.
Today we're talking you through which shoes we'd recommend for different surfaces! With so many different choices in venues, from traditional stately homes with wooden flooring and gravel driveways to cobbled streets and sandy beaches there are many different types of surfaces you might encounter on your wedding day.
For Beach Weddings
For Cobbled Streets
Cobbled streets are often found in picturesque towns and villages, which make for a gorgeous setting for your wedding. But it's not the easiest surface to walk on in heels. So we'd recommend a mid height heel in our flared block heel style Meg. Meg has a comfortable heel height of 7cm and offers you more stability than a stiletto would whilst still looking very classic.
For Grass and Gravel
Top Tip: Ivory shoes will naturally get marked with wear, especially in old venues or when walking on gravel and grass. To remove any marks we recommend using a makeup wipe or baby wipe. For best results, give the shoes a wipe after wear and they should come up looking lovely.
Please note this is not recommended on our velvet shoes, and cannot guarantee that all marks will come off.
