Wedges Are a Popular Wedding Shoes Option Because They Offer Style and Comfort

Wedges are one of our favorite wedding shoe styles!  We love their sense of style and how versatile they are in the custom wedding shoe designing process.  In this blog post, we thought we'd feature one of our most popular wedge base shoe styles and showcase all of the different ways we've dressed it up for different brides over the years.  We hope that these options can serve as wedding inspiration for brides looking to design their own wedge bridal shoes!

Wait? Brides Can Design Their Own Wedding Wedges?

Let's start at the beginning... At Ellie Wren, we work one-on-one with each bride to help her design her dream wedding shoes. We start by getting to know each bride and her wedding style through our Design Studio.  The Design Studio is an online platform where brides can see all of our base shoe options, our colors and embellishments that we've done in the past and start to pick and choose what they like best.  So, for example, a bride looking for an open toe wedge for her wedding day, might select the Minka wedding wedge shown here.

At Ellie Wren, the number of ways to dress up a wedding wedge heel is pretty much infinite.  Once the base wedding shoe style (in this case, the Minka wedding wedge) has been selected, we work with the bride on selecting her color palette for her wedding shoes.  We have dozens of colors to choose from and color selection can be made not only for the base wedding shoes, but also for any adornments selected, including handmade buttons, bows and flowers; painted soles and glittered heels; crystal accents or lace overlays.

And speaking of custom wedding shoe adornments, the third step in the Design Studio showcases all of the different things we can do to dress up a pair of wedding wedges.  Any of these options can be customized as well – we can adapt them to different colors and different base wedding shoe options.  

Let’s Get Into Some Wedding Wedge Inspiration!

Now that we’ve gone over how Ellie Wren works to help brides design their own wedding shoes, we’d like to focus on all the different ways that we’ve done the Minka wedge wedding shoe to dress it for different brides with different wedding styles and wedding budgets.  Get ready to be amazed by the transition that this white dyeable satin wedding shoe is able to undergo with a little bit of imagination and wedding-inspired magic!

Romantic & Vintage Wedge Wedding Shoe Ideas

This category of wedding wedges is one of our all-time favorites.  When we think romantic wedding shoes, we think of neutral wedding tones: ivory, cream, champagne, light gold, blush and maybe a slightly bolder plum.  Other elements that routinely come to mind are lace overlays and flowers.  Each bride's own personal choices were incorporated in the custom wedding wedges below, so for example, the wedges with the cameo brooch were created for a wedding in an old manor while those with the Swarovski crystal leaf design were made to match the brides bridal sash.  All that being said to emphasize that while a bride may see a wedge here and fall immediately in love (isn't that the best way!), our design team is very good at taking wedding inspiration from one design and adapting it for the specific bride.   So, without further ado, here are some of the ways we’ve transformed the Minka wedding wedge into dreamy romantic wedding wedges.

Wedding Wedges to Make a Statement: Bright Colors and Bold Accents

Wedding shoes don’t have to be white, ivory blush or champagne! Plenty of our brides opt to do their wedge wedding shoes in a variety of brilliant colors. Shades of coral, fuchsia, yellow and emerald green all come to mind.  Some brides decide to let the color speak for itself and opt to keep the custom adornments simple, while others want sparkle and bling!  Here are some of the ways our brides have taken the Minka wedding wedge and made it stand out!

Bridal Wedges to Honor the Season or Other Special Wedding Themes

When the leaves start to fall, wedding wedges are the perfect option for navigating the ground as it starts to get colder.  A little more stable and often more comfortable than a heel, they're perfect for walking along gravel paths or posing for wedding photos of the 9th-Hole green.  We've designed dozens of pairs of shoes to honor the seasons like autumn. Using colors like burnt orange, copper, gray, pine and navy blue, wedding wedges can be designed to be a very classy autumn wedding shoe option.   And let's not forget about Christmas and New Year's Eve! Weddings around those times of year are also popular and great times of year to consider a wedding wedge!
