Wedding gets exhausting and especially if you are a bride, you have absolutely no choice but to be on your feet the whole day, quite literally. With heavy bridal lehenga, a swanky hair updo supporting hair extensions, hundreds of bob pins and head ornaments and on the top of that, the extra weight of your wedding jewellery - the only thing that can save you from this agony is a pair of comfortable bridal shoes.
Right from the start of your wedding ceremony to the long photo session that requires hours of standing and posing in front of the camera, you will have to be on your feet. While many of us may get tempted to ditch those high heels, it doesn't work with the bridal look and the bridal outfit. So, look for a pair of bridal footwear that's ultra- voguish but at the same time it’s comfortable enough to last you the whole day.
