We know all too well just how important shoes are to us girls, right? Well none more than on our wedding day, some want heels, flats, vans or even trainers, and why not it’s Your Wedding Day so have what you want, and after all you’re on your feet most of the day! Anyway we caught up with Tomas from Custom Glitter Shoes to see how they’re changing wedding shoes for Brides, Bridesmaids or even Mother of the Bride/ Groom!

Q: Tell us a little bit about Custom Glitter Shoes. Why you started and how long you’ve been going?

Our website www.wehandmadeit.co.uk went live at first to showcase hand-made jewellery made from various Gemstones.  This merged with custom footwear after I purchased a pair of custom shoes for my wife from a retailer on Facebook.  Long story short – the shoes didn’t arrive so I went to another retailer and the quality of the shoes was poor – so I decided to make my own.

Q: What makes Custom Glitter Shoes that little bit more special than just buying a pair of shoes from a shop?

Originality! You can buy a pair of shoes from a high street retailer and the options you have are the options that are presented to you.  With our custom shoes – you can have unlimited designs that could be a one off and the only pair in existence.

Glitter_shoes_for_the _Bride_Wedding

Q: What has been your favourite pair of custom wedding shoes you’ve made?

A set of three black ribbon wedding shoes for a customer in the highlands of Scotland.  This was the second pair of shoes I had ever made.  It was challenging knowing that all three had to be perfect, the same and to Scotland for the brides wedding on a 4 day turn around.

Q: What advice can you give to Brides to Be when it comes to footwear for their Big Day?

Time, comfort and style.  Time to shop around and not leave it until the last week.  Comfort because you’ll be standing for most of the day and style because it’s your day and you deserve to have the shoe you want, in the colour you want and the price you can afford.

Q: What’s your biggest achievement to date? (Doesn’t have to be wedding related).

The birth of my daughter my Daughter Aurora and wedding my beautiful wife both in December.

Q: What does the future hold for Custom Glitter Shoes?

At the moment we are spending a lot of time on S.E.O for the website and expanding the social media aspect of the business.  This is time consuming but it’ll be worth it.  At the moment we don’t have any offers but if you keep an eye out on our store https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/wehandmadeit/ we do have seasonal offers.

Almost every wedding day has a theme or a colour scheme that runs through everything from the invites, the table decorations, the brides bouquet, and so on. Compiling your own mood board of all the ‘good ideas’ that you stumble across is a great starting point when it comes to planning your own wedding day, not only to build that picture in your own mind of how you want your day to look but also to show suppliers, friends and family who are there to help you plan your big day!

Bridesmaids dresses are a really significant part of your bridal parties attire and it can be quite a challenge to keep everyone happy in this department especially if you have 3, 4, or even 8 bridesmaids!

Cadbury purple can be quite an over powering colour when there is a lot of the same of it together, but it also helps it contrast well with lighter colours often associated with your wedding day, such as whites, ivories, pinks and greys. A bridal bouquet is nice touch for you to keep the cadbury purple theme alongside your wedding gown.

Table decorations are where you can really go to town, if you’re wanting lots of purple, or you can choose to be more subtle with a some scatter crytals to compliment your place names maybe?

Whichever route you decide, lots of deep and rich cadbury purple or more subtle smatterings it’s a beautiful colour and theme for a wedding day.

Catchup with Les & Joanne – Discount Wedding Dresses Bristol

 

Well that’s our first ‘Weekly Wedding Crier’, I hope you enjoyed our wedding industry favourites this week and we look forward to next week and our first ‘Real Brides’ wedding! 

           Bridesmaids play such a crucial part on your wedding day, helping with preparations in the run up to the big day and then helping you get ready on the morning itself. It can often be a nightmare finding bridesmaid dresses to suit them all and keep each bridesmaid happy, and not to mention the fact that, the more bridesmaids you have the more expensive your budget becomes! So I’d like to introduce Irenee’s Bridal by Design, with her own shop and a fabulous choice of bridesmaids dresses along with an individual level of service to suit!

Q – What advice can you give to Brides to Be when deciding on dresses for their bridesmaids?

 

I always find it good to have the wedding dress bought before choosing the bridesmaid dresses as you know then what dresses and styles will compliment your bridal gown! Always try on different colours on your girls as not all colours may suit your girls.
