My friend Ashley of We Are Electricity asked me what wedges I would recommend for a friend to wear at her wedding. Ash said she'll be walking over grass so she needs something that won't sink into the lawn - hence, wedges do seem like the perfect option.
The only store that came to mind because they simply carry the best stock of platform and wedge dress shoes out there is Solestruck. The coolest part is they are actually a local Portland store that happens to carry some of the freshest shoes on the market and they have a rad site.
The Sechelles Stroke of Genius is totally 60's classic bride and reminds me of the wedding scene in the movie The Graduate. But for something a little more casual and dance-the-night-away-worthy the BCBGirls Limber (almost a flat) wedge is super simple and sweet. The nude color is super in right now and I could see them almost dissappearing gracefully beneath a floor length gown.
Grey wedges would be an amazing and really hip option. Whether you are a classic girl a la Charlotte from Sex and the City and go with the peep toe Chinese Laundry or an ethereal rocker with a wild side and choose the Dolce Vita Pela (my favorite), each would be a stunning and surprising shoe.
Then there's the girl that wants to have a shoe that pops. The wedding photos will definitely focus around these puppies. What doesn't pop more than red?! Again - a classic option in the DKNY and a wild card in the Dolce Vita.
I would totally get married in any of these. Even a simple black version of these would be totally hot under a white wedding gown and Solestruck has a LOT of these styles in other rad colors as well.
Oh weddings, so exciting.
