Once you have chosen the all-important wedding dress then it’s time to choose your wedding shoes. Not all brides want to wear sky-high heels on their wedding day and those that do will often have a pair of gorgeous flat wedding shoes to change into during the evening of the wedding.
We spoke to shoe designer Charlotte Mills as she tells us how having flat wedding shoes doesn’t have to mean compromising on style. Charlotte explains: “Flats are so popular for us, so many brides want comfort but don’t want to compromise on style. That’s why we started to include flat in our range. They are perfect for dancing the night away.
