Jewelry On Your Feet
Crystals are a staple in wedding shoes fashion, but this 2023 wedding shoe trend gives a new spin on them. Instead of a traditional crystal buckle decorating your shoes, this year is all about crystal straps that wrap beautifully around your legs.
Sidney is for brides who love to be decked in jewelry from head-to-toe. Crystal chains drape around your legs gracefully like a piece of luxurious jewelry, giving you the illusion of model-like legs. Imagine how dazzling your night time pictures and videos will look with these crystal wedding shoes!
Mules are always a staple, so 2023 elevates the mule strap into a bedazzled crystal strap. Wren’s braided crystal strap has just the right amount of bling to wow, but not overwhelm or take away from your wedding look. The clean and modern look makes Wren very easy to re-wear your wedding shoes after your wedding day.
Bows are one of those classic staples in wedding fashion that are usually not headline worthy. In 2023, wedding shoes are about to take center stage with decorated bows. We reimagined classic satin bows to feel new and exciting again when decorated with pearls on the edges. Are you ready to bow down to bows?
Mirabelle is all about the back. The oversized bows that are lined with pearls will make your guests take a double look at your 2023 bridal shoes. Plus points for the ankle strap that will keep you feeling secure and stable all-day long.
Unlike Mirabelle’s statement at the back, Brooklyn’s decorated bows are front and center. With its classic mule silhouette, these oversized pearl bows are hand-sewn beautifully across the side of the foot. Wear Brooklyn with your silk wedding dress to complete your modern wedding look.
Feminine Vibes Only
This latest 2023 wedding shoe trend is for the romantics at heart. We love anything that is ethereal and delicately hand-crafted. In fact, we are very well-known for our handmade bridal shoes. So it’s no surprise that in 2023, we are taking it up a notch and crafting beaded wedding shoes that feel feminine. So what are you waiting for? Walk down the aisle in these stunningly detailed wedding heels.
Eloise is decked with captivating ivory flower beadwork on comfortable mesh that is breathable for the summer months — no sweaty feet here. An oversized tulle bow gives Eloise that extra touch of femininity with a hint of young romance.
While Eloise is all about youth, Kennedy is all about that come-of-age romance. We imagine a bride wearing Kennedy as she waltzes under the starry night sky on her wedding day. Kennedy’s hand-crafted artwork consists of crystals, beads and pearls, portraying a more timeless version of femininity.
A Hint Of Pearl
In 2022, pearls dominated the wedding scene, from wedding dresses with pearls to pearl wedding shoes. The pearl momentum is going to continue in 2023 but in a more refined way. Instead of being in your face, it’s going to be simple silhouettes that are elevated with just a hint of pearl — elegance without being overdone.
Remi is a modern wedding pump that features rows of pearls in a crescent shape at the side of the heel. The hint of elegant pearl is balanced with playful grosgrain mesh bows. The perfect modern wedding shoes for a modern bride.
If you’re looking for a little more pearl detail, Faye is right up your alley. This modern bridal shoe silhouette is embellished with a pearl buckle and pearl-lined slingback. Double the pearl, double the sophistication.
If Faye feels a little too embellished and Remi is a little too clean, you’ll fall in love with Emery. A comfortable wedding block heel that features a row of pearls that crown the vamp of the shoes. Just the right amount of pearl for a bride who loves pearls without being overdone.
Ruffle Those Feathers
ICYMI, feathers are making their big comeback in 2023. It was all over the 2023 bridal week runway, signaling that your after party wedding look or reception look is going to be very important in 2023.
Quinn features the whimsical element in an over-the-top way. The focal point of these stiletto wedding heels design is the wispy feather across the toes. We love how the dramatic feathers contrast the simplicity of the satin heels. Look closely and you’ll see a pearl at the side of the strap, just for that little extra touch.
If you’re not feeling the feathers, we got you covered with another fun afterparty element - ruffles. Ruffles balance elegance and flirty, so that it is both ceremony and reception worthy for your 2023 wedding.
Blaire has pleated organza ruffles that are embellished with pearl details on the edge. Who says elegance can’t also be unexpected and fun? The double ankle straps ensure that you stay secure as you have the best time on the dance floor or the afterparty.
