There are two sentances I hear almost everyday as a Milliner. The first is, "I don't think hats suit me". I answer that question separately in another Blog post! Click here if need me to show you how Hats can suit everyone. The second sentence is "I don't know if I have a pair of shoes to match. What shoes should I wear with this outfit? Where can I get a pair of shoes to match?".
No Mother of the Bride outfit is complete without a stylish pair of shoes. You don't always have to match your shoes to your Hat, but most will want at least "in the vicinity". The two shouldn't touch unless you are kicking your hat around the floor, so a perfect match is certainly not required. Although often the case that you will want to match them, if your dress has several colours, then it's perfectly acceptable to have your hat and bag in different colours picked out from the dress, and more creative than being matchy-matchy with your entire outfit.
Ever, and always willing to help my customers out I've compiled my selection of the best Mother of the Bride shoes to compliment your Mother of the Bride outfits and hats, that are on trend, fashionable (to your daughters brief), and comfortable (to your brief!). I've divided the shoes into a few different categories (budgets), from Mum totally spoiling herself on her daughters wedding day, to the more budget conscious, so you can select from the category that suits your requirements. I constantly update, add, remove shoes each season so you should find you can still grab them.
