When it comes to bridal fashion, a lot of the focus is placed on the actual wedding gown. And yes, while the gown is a focal point for brides walking down the aisle, we would be remiss to skip over the other important facets of a bridal ensemble–like hair, makeup, jewelry, and most importantly, shoes!
From stiletto heels to ballerina flats, and even sneakers, shoes are an extremely important piece when it comes to wedding day fashion. That's why we're thrilled to share the latest bridal shoe launch from Bella Belle. A one-stop-shop for all bridal heels, flats, sandals, and booties, Bella Belle has graced the world with luxury bridal shoes for about five years, both online and in-store. In continuing to rapidly expand the brand, their newest Spring Summer 2021 collection, 'Metamorphosis', was created "to empower women to feel comfortable in their own skin as they all go through stages of their own transformation."
Veronyca Kwan and Erina Ardianto, co-founders of Bella Belle, exclusively told Brides, "2020 was an unprecedented year that has uprooted normalcy and familiarity for many of us. Many couples had to change their wedding plans and adjust to the new normal in this stage of their lives. As a storytelling brand, the theme ‘Metamorphosis’ perfectly conveys this triumphant story. Inspired by the transformation process of a budding caterpillar into a butterfly, the collection is filled with subtle notions of a butterfly in the form of silhouettes, fabric techniques, and artwork to emulate its natural habitat."
The 21-piece collection primarily consists of heels and is perfect for brides looking to add extra romanticism to their big day. How? Well, each shoe exudes a sense of femininity and uniqueness, as shown through the lace detailing, butterfly motifs, and intricate embroidery and beadwork. Brides looking to veer from traditional white or cream shoes will also love the versatility of styles and colors within the collection.
Prices range from $300 to $400 and can be bought directly on their website. And given today's virtual climate, being able to easily purchase shoes online is just the icing on the cake—and a major incentive for brides all around the world. Ahead, our five favorite styles from the latest collection.
