Shoes worn by royal brides
 
When looking at a bride, we always notice the gown, veil, tiara, train etc., but seem to forget the shoes.

After seeing the beautiful shoes worn by Princess Mary on her wedding day, I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread filled with pics of the wedding shoes of royal brides, past and present.

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark

Shoes remarkably similar to those of Princess Mary's from BridalShoes.com, that Raretonga pointed out. The shoes have the same 3 3/4 inch heel and cost just $99...WOW!!!

Queen Elizabeth

Ivory duchesse satin self-lined, they are in one piece, embracing the waist of the foot with reverse folds on the high instep and across the front. The draped sandels are finished off with a silver buckle studded with small pearl.

Queen Victoria

Flat shoes of white satin trimmed with bands of ribbon. Long ribbon ties fastening around the ankles held the shoes in place.

What a great idea for a thread pdas1201!

Thanks for putting it together. Very interesting some of these wedding shoes.

If it were me, I'd opt for flip flops -- in pink so that there is still a touch of romance! ;)

I know someone that actually did get married in flip flops under a beautiful dress! She said she wanted to be comfortable!

Sophie, Countess of Wessex

24 hours before the wedding, Sophie Rhys Jones's shoes turned out to be the wrong colour. The size five court shoes were "too pink" according to the shoemaker Arty Achilleous. The shoes were sent by motorbike courier to Mr Achilleous so he could replace the fabric on them. He put a new cream-coloured material on the heels and uppers.
He said Miss Rhys Jones's shoes, worth about 250 pounds, were "sensible" with three-inch fluted heel.
