Bridal Shoe Clips | Manolo for the Brides

Inspiration: Bridal Shoe Clips

Should I be a little ashamed to admit that I didn’t ever once thought about after-market bridal shoes add-ons for my own wedding day footwear? Or that of my bridesmaids? Maybe not. But I am entirely ashamed to admit that I have gone my entire life admiring this shoe or that, never realizing that the pretty baubles adorning the back or the front of said shoe might not have come with the shoe itself. So hello, bridal shoe clips!

Shoe Clips for the bride are basically jewelery for your bridal shoes – any shoe that doesn’t already have decoration (or maybe just doesn’t have enough decoration for your tastes) can be transformed with shoe clips. Keep in mind that while I did say jewelry, shoe clips don’t have to be blingy. I’ve seen amazing peacock feather shoe clips and shoe clips with gorgeous felt flowers… not to mention shoe clips that look like miniature nests and adorable bows and more.

Popular in the 1940s – I’m thinking thrifty chicks who wanted more variety – shoe clips have made a massive comeback and are becoming the wedding footwear accessory of choice for more and more brides. What I can’t figure out is who was the target market in between the 40s and today’s brides since quite a few of the mass market shoe clips I’ve found have been baubles that one associate with sexy Halloween costumes.

Isn’t that weird? No matter. Want to know my favorite source for beautiful and fun shoe clips for the bride, bridesmaid, or regular gal? I love all the shoe clips at Fink Shop! Definitely give them a look if you’re in the market for this particular wedding accessory.

    Shoe clips are a great way to not only accessorize shoes but clutches and clothing as well. Take a look at my latest collection of shoe clips at Absolutely Audrey (www.absolutelyaudrey.com). I have a few fun pink feather designs as well.

    My going-away outfit from my first wedding included a pair of red silk faille open-toed pumps with shoe clips that were self-fabric bows. I wore the bows for the going-away and later wore the shoes to work without them.

    What a great idea! I like the idea of making a shoe multi-purpose. Fancy one minute and ready to wear to work the next.
