Walk me down the aisle

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.

Marilyn Monroe VOUGE Magazine

Wedding shoes have an enchanting history that continues to influence the look of the footwear that today’s brides choose for their stroll down the aisle.Cinderella, the most famous princess bride, married her prince wearing sparkling glass slippers. Catherine de Medici, one of the first brides in history to walk down the aisle in high heels, inspired a fashion trend that continues today. Anglo-Saxon brides tossed shoes rather than bouquets to bridesmaids who hoped to be the next to marry. Brides in merry old England followed the directive that they wear «something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue — and a sixpence in her shoe» by tucking coins into their wedding slippers.Queen Victoria inspired millions of modern-day brides by choosing a white gown and white shoes for her wedding in 1840. Until then, blue was the color of choice for bridal ensembles. Princess Diana, a statuesque 5 feet 10 inches tall, chose low-heeled, pearl-encrusted, ivory silk flats for her wedding, so as not to tower over Prince Charles.
