Celebrity Trends: Breaking White Rules
The custom of wearing white on your wedding day has long lost its original meaning, so maybe you won’t feel so bad breaking tradition (a little) and sport a different color on your feet?
For many of you, your wedding shoes may never make an appearance on your big day. Many styles of wedding dresses will suitably cover the shoes on your feet - an even better reason to break this wedding-white rule. Whether they’re seen or not seen, your shoes can bring your wedding dress to life and put a knowing smile on your face.

Black Platform Shoes with Asymmetry:
Get inspired by Jennifer Lawrence making a stark statement in black platform sandals by Miu Miu. This Maggie Sottero Fredericka and Pronovias Grecia wedding dress help you rock the one shoulder look. Now all you need is your shoes!
Colored Shoes for a Short Dress:
Or, you can go with a fun splash of color just like Michelle Williams in her Christian Dior cocktail dress. Maybe add your something blue in your shoes and then show off those kicks with this Alfred Sung 7076 or Priscilla of Boston 4215 wedding dress.

Nude Shoes for an Elegant, Classic Look:
Last but certainly not least, if you’re going for a classic look and a longer silhouette, try an elegant shoe in a nude tone that closely matches your own skin tone, like Rihanna did recently. Get Rihanna’s figure hugging look with this Lea-Ann Belter Mathia or Jasmine F157 wedding dress.
