Girls Shoes for a Wedding

Shoes For a Wedding

Wedding Guest

Wedding Guest

If you little one is a wedding guest, though still required to look smart, footwear choices can be a little more relaxed compared to when they’re playing a more formal role. If they’re a guest at a winter wedding, it would be best to opt for a full shoe with a closed toe and heel, protecting the feet against the elements. At the other end of the scale, what kind of shoes are suitable for a beach wedding? Some cute sandals or a pair of smart flip flops would most likely fit the bill.

Flower Girl


When it comes to ease of use, girls slip on shoes are definitely at the top of the list. Easy to put on and easy to take off, slip on shoes will help to make your little one more independant and will also make it much easier to get them dressed and out the door when in a hurry. Slip on shoes aren’t always suitable for every child, if they’re too loose they can fall off the heel, they can become a trip hazard when a youngster has just learned to walk. They can also cause your child to curl their toes to keep them in place while walking, so make sure the fit is spot on.


Flower Girl

A role usually reserved for the youngest members of the wedding party, being a flower girl comes with great responsibility, so getting the shoes for your little one right is paramount. A well structured shoe with a supportive insole will ensure your child stays comfortable throughout the day. Getting the shoe fitting right should prevent unnecessary trips while taking centre stage.
