'If the Show Fits'...Wedding Shoe Trends for 2012

Ok...ok, I admit it...I love shoes.  In fact, if you were to look in my closet right now, you'd see box, after plastic box of flats, heels and boots.  Truth be told, I'm afraid to count the boxes...LOL!  Did someone just call me, 'Imelda Marcos'...?  Well, I'm not quite that bad...LOL!

However, with that in mind, as I sit and look at the stacks of shoe boxes my closet holds, I decided to also take a look at wedding shoes and what's trending for 2012.

This year there will be a lot more platforms walking the aisles than in years past.  I'm still on the fence about these, but that's probably because I've already lived them back in the '70's when they were first popular...or maybe it's because I'm afraid I'll fall and break a hip...LOL.  No matter, they are definitely HOT this season...

Color is also IN this year...and not surprisingly since color is BIG with everything for 2012.   Many brides will be opting for big, bright, and/or bold shoes to add a bit of 'pop' to their gorgeous gowns, and in some cases a bit of fun as well. 

Rhinestones...rhinestones...rhinestones.  There is nothing that screams glamour louder than rhinestones.  And this year, platform or not, these beauties are still in style.  Yippee!

Booties are also a bride pleaser with styles ranging from solids to lace...look for these to grace ceremonies all year long.

And of course, the ever popular, cowboy, or in this case, cowgirl boots are back!  Brides choosing an outdoor, rustic wedding are looking to these classics to set the tone for their entire day.  Not liking the brown, well these beauties come in many different styles and colors as well...but I kinda like the traditional ones the about you?

Not feeling the cowgirl boot trend but still love boots...take a look at these sexy lace lovelies that would look InnCredible under any gown.

Good news ladies...Retro is still IN style...and more so than last year.  It's such a fun look, and if you can carry it off...why not?  There is nothing more 'campy' than a retro wedding with all the fab details...including the shoes.

Now, if you're a traditionalist, there are many gorgeous styles awaiting you in 2012 as well.  We all know that the classics never, ever go out of style.  So whether you choose a Peep-Toe, Strappy or Pointed-Toe, you can't go wrong with a classic.

Flats are also a BIG fav for 2012...of course.  And with so many gals liking this trend, wedding shoes are catching on fast.  

And finally, you know this post would not be complete without some quirky, 'over-the-top' shoes...right?  So here are my picks for the most outrageous of 2012.  LOL.

Until next time....
