Kitten Heels for Brides – Wedding Dilemma from the WOL Forums

For today’s wedding dilemma post, we’re diving into the heady world of bridal fashion accessories, and to shoes. Our challange was as follows:

"I struggled hugely to find the right shoes because I found most were like what you show here, with towering heels. I needed mid height to ensure I wouldn’t be taller than my husband to be. I would never want pumps though so advice for brides in my position is badly needed!" – Fluffy

"I’m in a similar position to Fluffy. I need heels between 2-3 inches, nothing higher so I’m not towering over everyone. I love bling and shoes in general and so far have been really disappointed with the availability of shoes to suit me. Hope you can help…Thank you." – Gillian

Well firstly, we have to agree with Fluffy and Gillian that’s it’s not the easiest of jobs to find a unique, modern, TDF pair of bridal shoes with anything less than a 5 inch heel, but after scouring the net for accessible shoes in a range of prices, we came up with the below. Where possible we noted the height of the heel, however most shoes are between 3 to 5.5cm.

A quick note on bridal shoes. If you don’t fancy traipsing round town for four or five days to find a pair of low heeled, comfortable and pretty bridal shoes, we highly recommend Rainbow Club. Rainbow Club are bridal shoe specialists, so comfort and style are their company pillars. Rainbow Club are online but only ship within the UK. However a select range of the shoes is available from Dance World or online at
