Bridal shoes are almost as important as the wedding dress after all you’re going to have to walk down the aisle in them, stand for photographs in them, dance in them and walk around all day in them.
I found a few designer bargain shops like century 21 and sacks off fifth that will ship to Ireland and save you some of your wedding budget if your heart is set on going designer for your big day.

You should not wear your shoes for the first time on your wedding day. Make sure you have them a few weeks before and wear them around the house to get them worn in. It’s a great excuse to feel bridal without having people think you are crazy like they would if you were to get caught wearing your wedding dress around the house.
You’ll need to be wearing your shoes at your dress fitting so when you order them check how long it will take for them to be delivered. This is really important to ensure the hemline of the dress can be made the right length. Remember that if you are wearing a short wedding dress, your shoes will be on display so make sure they are flattering.
