5 Stunning Shoes A Bride Must Have In Her Wedding Trousseau

A very important part of wedding prep is creating your trousseau. Many times women tend to focus more on their wedding outfit, jewelry and the trousseau clothes but the footwear remains forgotten. That is a big no-no because then they end up having a hoard of beautiful Indian-wear but no footwear to match! So, if you’re to get married soon, make sure you stock up on shoes for your trousseau too. Here are five styles you must have in your wedding haul!

1. Embellished Stilettos – Stilettos are a staple in a true-blue diva’s closet. But western stilettos and heeled pumps aren’t always the best match with Indian outfits. Unless, well, they have some added bling to them. Look for a pair embellished with sequins or crystals. Having a golden or silver pair is likely to cover all your outfits. Bring out those killer heels on occasions when you need to bring your  "A" game at family functions.

2. Embroidered Juttis – Juttis are the most comfy option in Indian footwear. They usually aren’t heeled and are suitable for everyday use as well as occasion-wear. You can have a couple of juttis in your trousseau – one simple pair for regular outfits and more fancy ones for more dressy events. The fancier ones could be embroidered, embellished or studded with ghungaroos.

3. Ethnic Chappals – You may raise your eyebrows but chappals are not just for the bathroom. Ethnic chappals are great to team with fusion outfits such as kurti-and-jeans combos or even churidars. You’ll probably find these at street stores or brands dealing exclusively with Indian footwear. Having at least one pair of these would be great for those times when you want to be absolutely comfy with fuss-free footwear.

4. Zardosi Sandals – These days zardosi sandals are quite the fashion statement. Embroidered sandals with zardosi detailing are often spotted in the ethnic collections of leading designers. Now, you may have to shell out a little bit more of trousseau money for these, but they’ll be worth the investment. They’ll complement all kinds of Indianwear – saris, suits, lehengas, etc – and you can find one with heels of the size you are most comfortable with.

5. Kohlapuri Heels/Wedges – Kohlapuris are just so versatile. And the heeled versions are absolutely perfect to wear on functions and occasions when you need style without hassles. Think of occasions such as Sangeet ceremonies or pre-wedding cocktails – for those you’ll need shoes that look great with ethnic outfits but aren’t too high heeled or discomforting, and only then will you fully enjoy the dancing and festivity.
