Resourceful Bride: Choosing the Shoe That's Right for You

For the bride who spends her work days in clogs or flats or the tomboy bride who hasn't worn high heels since Junior Prom, choosing footwear for your wedding day can feel a bit overwhelming. Walking into a shoe store or searching online can provide you with dozens of options, but how do you know which shoe is best for you?
Below I have provided some favorite shoe options and the personality traits that they embody:
