I had a rather lovely delivery the other day from Elegant Steps, the UK's No.1 for bridal and occasion shoes. They contacted me a little while ago to see if I'd be interested in reviewing their services as they launch their new customisation guide for brides and I jumped at the chance, I LOVE shoes!
The parcel arrived and it was like Christmas, literally, it was so beautifully wrapped I felt bad about opening it...

They stock tonnes of designers and I had a pretty hard time selecting a pair but in the end I went for a pair of Evie Dyeable Satin Wedding Shoes which are mid range in price at £69. They stock beautiful shoes from as little as £9.99 in the sale but for a wedding around the £70 mark would be a reasonable price to spend I think, after all you are going to be in them for a very long day, dashing about, dancing and having fun!
The Elegant Steps team offer a bespoke dyeing service, you can send them a swatch from your dress or your bridesmaids dresses or you can select from their extensive colour studio and have the shoes that you've chosen dyed to match what ever you like.
I challenged the team to match the Pretty Thrifty blog colours and I think they did a rather good job don't you?!
I was also supplied with a pair of shoe clips to jazz up my shoes, again they have a big range of these to suit all the different shoes they stock and they can be worn on the front, side or back of the shoes (or on any of your other shoes - hello investment piece!) Some of the bows are just adorable and I think I'll be stocking up on a few more pairs to liven up my plain old court shoes. Shoe clips start at less than twenty quid so you really can't go wrong.
So I don't often wear heels (I'm much more of a Birkenstock or Boot kind of girl) and my main concern is always comfort and weather or not I can dance like a lune and consume copious amounts of fizz in them... let me tell you, these are the COMFIEST shoes I have ever worn, I may never take them off...
