Women love stilettos. They make you look slim and tall and add a certain oomph factor to your overall look. A good pair of stilettos can convert any drab dress into something absolutely stunning.
When to wear: Wearing stilettos for prolonged periods is not really recommended. That is why you must consider wearing it for your reception. During your reception, you are not required to move around much and you can stay put in one place. Also, if you get tired, you can always relax in the comfy reception chair with your husband.
Pair it up with: Pair your stilettos with a gorgeous lehenga. Buy your stilettos before you get your lehenga in order to get its length sorted out.

Ballet shoes

Ultra feminine and comfortable are the two words which best describe ballet shoes. Their soft cushioning and cute designs make them apt for casual wear, but you can always buy fancier ones which are adorned with sequins, satin and artificial diamonds.
When to wear: Ballets are best suited for your sangeet and mehendi ceremony. Though you may be sitting for the first half while mehendi is being applied on your hands, you can always get up and shake a leg once you are done. Ballets will ensure that you can dance till late in the night with your friends, without getting a single blister.
Pair it up with: Ballets look beautiful with anarkalis and salwar kameez. 

Kitten heels

Kitten heels are usually about 1.5 inches to 2 inches in height with a slight curve towards the end. They may not have a high sex appeal like stilettos, but they have a lady like charm and are far more comfortable.
When to wear: Kitten heels should be worn for your actual wedding ceremony since ‘sexy’ is not the message you would like to send out during your marriage. Kitten heels are easy to slip in and out and you can walk comfortably in them. Don’t hesitate to invest in a gold or silver pair, after all weddings are all about bringing on all the bling.
Pair it up: With your gorgeous wedding trousseau. Match your shoes with your dress and if you are wearing open toed heels, don’t forget to get a pedicure.


Sneakers and wedding don’t really go hand in hand, but you will soon realize that they are going to become the quintessential part of your wedding. From visiting boutiques to running a last minute errand, sneakers are going to become your closest friends. You don’t really need to wear fancy heels when you are running all over the city to get your wedding in place. Wear a pair of comfy sneakers and give your feet a chance to relax.
When to wear: While running errands.
Pair it up with: Fitted jeans and tops.
