When it comes to your bridal look, the bottom of your shoes might not be top of mind. But when you consider all eyes will be on you—when you're coming and going—adding a bit of detail to the soles of your shoes can be a fun, whimsical touch. Here are a few that'll step up your style.

5. Lasting Words

Looking for something more permanent than a sticker? Wedding shoes can be embossed with a traditional wedding rhyme.

For a more DIY approach, a permanent marker is all you need. Write a note to your future spouse on the soles of your shoes or give them to the groom and ask him to write something special to you.
