Hot High Heels

 I knew that as soon as Prince Charming put the glass slipper on Cinderella's foot that shoes would indeed be a key element to the bridal ensemble.  For ages, the bridal shoe has made a statement. For example...did you know that brides used to toss their shoes at the end of a wedding instead of a bouquet to hopeful maidens in search of their mate or that English brides tucked coins into their shoes for good luck?  Personally,  I love shoes but have often found wedding shoes...boring. That is until stylish heels with color and posh recently returned to the wedding marketplace.  These days a bride's shoe is making a real fashion statement...going much farther than the traditional satin pump.  I encourage you to find your perfect pair of shoes that communicate your own style...something that you could perhaps wear again...or a pair of vintage shoes that continue to tell their story.  No matter which shoes you choose to make your wedding day journey in remember the golden rule for happy feet...never sacrifice comfort for style! I'm giggling a little...because I think that this rule is probably pretty good for finding a mate as well!  

Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life.

    I got married with a sixpence in my shoe. That is no longer part of the British currency but I am still married after 42 years so I guess the good luck from the sixpence worked!!
