Outdoor weddings are gaining in popularity, whether they are destination beachside or marquee in a-field type affairs. It is a beautiful way to celebrate your day, but it can be tricky to stop your heels from sinking if you are walking across grass or sand. Over the years, we have learned many things about the perfect wedding day, including insider tips and tricks for keeping your heels above the ground.
Luxury bridal shoes with block heels are perfect as the broader base prevents slipping and sinking into the ground. We have an amazing range of designer wedding shoes with our signature pearl heels that have a block heel wedding shoe finish to give you every chance of walking like a princess no matter what terrain you tackle.
The other inside trick is to ensure that you have an ankle strap on your designer wedding shoes, preventing them from slipping off if your heel becomes stuck. It is much less likely with a block heel. However, the ankle strap is a layer of protection and confidence that no matter what happens, you won't fall over because of a shoe malfunction.
Platform shoes are also suitable for uneven terrain as there is a wedge to base between you and the ground. Gigi perfectly fits the bill because it is a gorgeous platform open to lower ankle strap sandal with our signature mother-of-pearl inlay mosaic heel. The mid-size 3.5-inch heel is offset with a 3 cm platform, so you barely feel like you are walking in high heels, but you gain the height and elegance they offer.
They are designed to turn heads and stand out from the crowd. Bonnie is another open-toe platform wedding shoe that is perfect for outdoor weddings. Again, the towering 5.2-inch heel is offset by the platform, and this time the front of the shoe features a gorgeous crossed leather band, and the block heel has a beautiful mosaic mother-of-pearl inlay.
If you prefer a block heel sandal without a platform that still gives added height, then consider Flora. The front has a single-toe band, and the laces start halfway along the sole and wind their way up your leg, incorporating the closed back heel. The beauty of laced sandals is that you can create the perfect fit, either crisscrossing up the calves or tied together at the lower ankle.
The high ankle strap is a very popular design, and Ross offers a unique take because only 20 pairs will be made each year as part of our capsule collection. The 3.5-inch block heel is finished with a floral motif using hand-cut brass and inlaid with the iridescent mother-of-pearl.
Another closed-back single-toe band high ankle strap sandal is Martene, which comes in two heel heights. Both block heels feature our signature mother-of-pearl mosaic inlay. The lower heel is 2.4 inches, and the higher version is 3. 5 inches.
Our final selection is Martina midi. This open-toe low ankle strap block heel sandal is available in both champagne and ivory to suit any wedding styling.
