Something Blue (Intial Bridal Shoes)

April 2, 2009

By Kristin


While prepping for your big day, that little wedding rhyme is probably going through your head… “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”. You have your grandmother’s heirloom handkerchief to catch your tears of joy, your best friend lent you her favorite earrings, your fiancé surprised you with that necklace you’ve been eying up, but then you realize that you are missing your ‘Something Blue’!

An easy way to incorporate the blue into your wedding day (if it isn’t already), is by adding your initials in rhinestones to the bottom of your wedding shoes. I did this because I was unsure how to incorporate blue into my Red/Ivory color scheme. After scouring the internet I saw that fellow Brides had used rhinestones to put their new initials on their shoes. This was perfect for me, as it was a simple and unsuspecting way to add my blue.

You can choose to add one initial on each shoe (first initial on the right shoe and last initial on the left shoe), or you can put two or three on each shoe, making a little monogram out of it.

You can use SS7, SS9, or SS12 rhinestones. The smaller stones will be better if you are putting all the initials on each shoe, this way you can get more detail. Use E6000 glue for the best results, they will stay through all your dancing and remain for years to come. When I looked at the bottom of my shoes recently, I was reminded of my special day and how I look forward to the years ahead.

    Hi I was wondering where to get the rhinestones? and do you do it or does the person themselves do it? I saw this done on my nieces shoes and thought it was a wonderful idea for my girlfriend….my niece had i do on the bottom of hers….

    thank you,

      You can purchase the rhinestones at M&J Trimming (1008 Sixth Ave between 37th and 38th Streets, NYC) and put them on yourself. It is super easy to do, and beautiful! Good Luck!
