We all know the best-looking shoes are not always the most comfortable. If you have attended a wedding recently you know how tough it can be to wear heels all night. There is going to be lots of dancing and standing. It can take a toll on your toes, especially if you’re not used to wearing heels or whatever designer shoes you may have chosen that compliments your outfit just right.
Some couples provide a basket of flip flops for guests to switch into but let’s be honest, do you really want to wear flip flops with your nice dress? Instead of throwing flats in a bucket, why not make it a decorative part of your wedding reception with a shoe bar!
How To DIY a Wedding Shoe Bar
There are flexible ballet flats that are so easy to slip on and will keep your dance floor packed all night! Providing a wedding shoe bar shows you care about your guest’s comfort. Plus, flip flops or flats can be worn long after your wedding, making them a great gift. There are flats made with tough but tender padded, scuff-proof soles and weatherproof faux leather. You and your guest can simply fold the rescue flats after use and pop in a purse!
There are all kinds of options for shoes that include flip flops down to amazing flats that come packaged in box sets with a bag so your guests can tuck their heels safely away. You can choose from cream and champagne to silver, slate, gold, and black gloss.
Add a colorful touch by decorating the shoe bar with fresh greenery and flowers to add a natural feel to the display. Displaying flats or flip flops can be fun by tucking the shoes into draws and layering in wire pedestal bowls or baskets. Just make it easy for your guests to see the different shoe sizes and colors. The last touch for any good shoe bar is to add labels. I created labels using my favorite font to display the different shoe sizes so that guests can easily find their perfect fit!
