Offbeat Bride blog has discovered the most amazing custom wedding shoes! Figgie Shoes was created by the artist Deborah Thomson and is one of the most unique businesses around when it comes to retro weddings.
Brides can either provide their own shoes or let her select shoes and she works with the client to come up with a one off design which she then hand paints onto the shoes.
Figgie Shoes can create designs incorporating names, dates and images that are meaningful to each couple – what a perfect momento from the day!
Shoes could be black on white or they could incorporate your own special wedding colours. For brides having a really retro “rockabilly” style wedding these shoes would absolutely perfect.
Why not have custom shoes for the entire bridal party? Your bridesmaids could have shoes designed in colours which compliment their gown and they can then keep the one off shoes as a thank you gift from the happy couple.
Figgie Shoes isn’t located in Australia (actually for the life of me I can’t find on their website where exactly they are located but I’m assuming somewhere in the US). So for this reason I would strongly suggest Aussie brides discuss with her the best shoes and ship them to her – there would be nothing worse than having the most awesome custom shoes but the shoes don’t actually fit.
Now of course these shoes would look fabulous with any dress but personally I say show your shoes off!! I always love a bride with colourful shoes on show. Team the shoes with a cute 50s style tea length dress or even a fun knee length dress.
If, sadly, you are like me and have found this blog and you are already married or you love the idea but just can’t bear to be unconventional, don’t be disheartened – Figgie Shoes also create custom shoes for any / no occasion….. I so want a pair of my very own!!
