We’re admitting it right here: A lot of wedding planning is work, but when it comes to finding the perfect bridal footwear, we say bring it on. After all, when there are so many big decisions to make (civil vs. religious? honor vs. obey? beach vs. boardwalk? sit-down vs. buffet?), drilling down on something as delightful as shoes sends your mind in a lovely direction.
Which is right where we went when we discovered these adorbs lace espadrilles from Soludos. The accessories company has taken the classic summer slipper from the Riviera and transformed it into the perfect wedding weekend shoe. Dressed up or dressed down, with cut off-jean shorts or a cute little white wedding dress, these beauties go with everything and anything. And almost any destination, too, as long as it’s laid-back and summery, be it the rocky coastline of Maine or on the white sand beaches of the Caribbean. Find a breezy, easy wedding site, and these kicks will have you styling all the way down the aisle. (One caveat: Soludos espadrilles don’t like to get wet, so if a summer shower strikes, stash them in a bag.)
Started in New York in 2010, but with its heart firmly positioned on the Spanish coast, Soludos makes some of the cutest, summeriest espadrilles we’ve seen. With a plethora of colors, prints and fabrics and very appealing prices (nothing on the site is over $75), you may want to gift your entire bridal party (yeah, guys like them too) with a pair in your wedding colors. – Sarah Leingang
