So your big day is finally here, the excitement has been building up and of course, you are a bit nervous, this might just be the best day of your life! As a groom-to-be choosing your wedding shoes is one of the easiest and fun parts of the wedding planning process.
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CHOOSING YOUR WEDDING SHOE.
Comfort: Everyone knows how stressful Nigerian white Weddings can be. From the second you wear those shoes you will be standing all day, and be greeting guests all day. You, therefore, need a shoe that fits properly, that is incredibly comfortable. Our Size guide can definitely help with this. No one wants to be walking down the aisle with painful shoes.
Suit: For a White wedding in Nigeria the first thing you should choose is the colour of the suit you are going to wear. Your Suit colour will help you choose the colour of the shoe you will wear. For example, a navy suit colour can go with almost any main show colour. Light and medium grey suits can go with brown, black shoes.
After the wedding: It will be unwise to buy a show only for your wedding day. With the way things are in Nigeria, it will be wise to consider if you still want to be wearing the shoe before you buy. If that is the case, this is how you properly take care of leather shoes.
Style: Style matters a lot, consider what your shoes say about you before you buy. Do you want to be seen as bold? Or Colorful and fun? Your style should influence your wedding shoe.
Classic Oxfords are very versatile (especially the browns), these shoes go with a wide range of suits from Light grey to Navy blue to Black. There are built with a very classy and subtle design. Oxfords make our lists as one of the best wedding shoes.
2. Monk Strap.
If you are looking for the perfect blend of Style and Formality, monk straps are the way to go. The Straps offer an alternative to the lacing system which make the monk straps one of the most comfortable formal shoes around.
The loafers make our list primarily because of the hot weather in Nigeria, the loafers are a perfect fit in hot places mainly because most men wear them without socks. The loafers are perfect for those that want to add colour and style to their wedding wardrobe.
