It can be incredibly hard to secure the perfect pair of shoes for your big day. Just finding the right style (Retro? Romantic? Modern? Modest?) the right heel (Stiletto? Wedge? Platform? Flat?) And the right toe (Pointed? Peep-toe? Open? Closed?) is a huge challenge alone. And on top of all of that - they've gotta be white!
That's why we were so surprised to find the following selections at Bridal Shoes Canada, which are not only just a small sample of an extraordinarily diverse selection - they're also all dyeable! That means you can have the right "light" look for your wedding, and whichever colour you fancy your footwork to be afterwards.
