Miss Meers Bridgeport

The first time I ever came into a Miss Meers was with my best friend to help her pick out a pair of shoes for her wedding day. Now as an employee, I have helped countless brides find that perfect pair to walk down the aisle in. Summer is wedding season in Oregon (because it is the only time of year you can ALMOST count on it not to rain) so now is the perfect time to start looking for that perfect shoe for your dream wedding!

Every bride has her own unique bridal style. The trick to picking out the perfect wedding shoe is finding something that isn't just pretty, but that fits into your whole wedding vision. Not engaged? Me neither. Just play pretend! Here are some of my favorite summer wedding shoes, and I included the rings I would wear them with because who can resist a little sparkle?

The Vintage Bride - Seychelles "Quiz Show"
Is your favorite book The Great Gatsby? Do you often find yourself wearing long strands of pearls and swing dancing? This is definitely the shoe for you. The low heel and t-strap give it a little vintage flare and the rose gold keeps it dressy. It would look PERFECT with this vintage engagement ring on your finger and a birdcage veil.

The Beach Bride - Tkees Highlighters
You live in a bikini and feel as if you belong in the water. You didn't wear high heels to your senior prom, so why start now? Tkees are dressier than your average flip flop, and the silver on this pair will sparkle beautifully in the sunset. An engagement ring with a pop of blue will make you stand out, and coordinate with the ocean!

The "Bling" Bride - Jeffrey Campbell "Gaby Jewell"
Who says glitter isn't a color? A bling bride is all about one thing: sparkle. If this giant ring isn't enough for you, complete your bridal look with the Jeffrey Campbell Gaby Jewell. This shoe could only be more bedazzled if you dipped it in glue and rolled it in glitter.

The Nontraditional Bride - Dolce Vita "Henlie"
Who says a bride has to wear white on her wedding day? Its your day. Don't be afraid to be yourself. This Dolce Vita is perfect for the edgy bride who wants to dress up but not look too traditional. Oh, but being nontraditional doesn't mean you don't get a diamond. How gorgeous is this black ring?

The Shabby Chic Bride - All Black "Fish Pump"
The Shabby Chic bride, (also known as the "Pinterest" bride) loves to DIY and is looking for that perfect balance of polished feminine pieces and vintage distressed details for her day. At her wedding, you'll find as many mason jars as flowers, and all the lace will be contrasted by burlap. No shoe says shabby chic to me like the All Black "Fish Pump". It has a classically feminine shape, but the fish scale treatment of the leather makes it completely unique. Oh, and ivory will look beautiful with the blush pink on this ring!

BONUS: The Maid of Honor - Seychelles "Like You Mean It"
Don't forget that your bridal party needs cute footwear too! Treat your MOH to something classy and comfortable like they Seychelles "Like You Mean It". The wedge will keep her feet feeling great as she dotes on you all day, and the metallic will help her stand out (without overshadowing the bride of course). A simple heart shaped necklace will remind her how much you love her even if you go a little bridezilla.
