When it comes to choosing your wedding dress and accessories, finding the perfect shoes are just as important. The right style, fit, colour and heel height. Many brides don’t really think to much about spending over a thousand pounds on a dress that they will never wear again, but when it comes to choosing shoes brides are often looking for something that can be worn after their big day.
Rainbow Club offer just that, beautiful shoes in varying styles, width fittings and heel heights but they also offer a dyeing service on a large selection of their shoes. During 2017 Rainbow Club have also offered their brides a wedding gift of dyeing their shoes after the wedding with a choice of 5 different colours. Or you are able to have your shoes dyed to a colour of your choosing with their bespoke colouring service. Costing just £25 for the colouring pack which gives you everything you need to revitalise your wedding shoes. It’s not only shoes for the bride that Rainbow Club offer, they have cute little shoes for your flower girls, veils, handbags and shoe accessories.
My Rainbow Club dyeable shoes
When Rainbow Club offered to send me out a pair of shoes and shoe clips, I couldn’t wait to choose a pair of shoes, I mean what girl doesn’t want to add another pair of shoes to her collection. However, as most of you will already know I take ages to make a decision about something and choosing a pair of Rainbow Club dyeable shoes was no different. After spending a couple of evenings looking at all of the shoes, I opted for the ‘Vivian’ shoes at £65. They are a simple classic, statin court shoe with a pointy heal and oh so comfy. Like a pair of slippers on your feet. The Vivian have manageable 9cm heel which for me if great as I am only 5 foot so I do like a pair of heels.
I then decided to channel my inner Carrie Bradshaw and opt of a pair of Xenia sparkly shoe brooches at £43. They are beautiful, as so versatile as they can be moved around the shoes. Placing the at the front, on the side or at the back, I am also sure you could use them to dress up a bag for the evening. The other thing I love about the shoe clips is that once they are in place you cannot feel them, I was worried about the inside of the clip rubbing against my foot, but this was just not the case.
From ivory to navy in a flash
So, not only did it take me 2 evenings to decide on the shoes I wanted, then choosing the colour to have them dyed was another couple of evenings and phone calls to my bestie to see what she thought. Although in all honestly as we have different shoe sizes and cannot benefit from the them she wasn’t to much help. The shoe clips however she was very interested in. But continuing on my quest to be Carrie Bradshaw I opted for the Navy, which was actually one of the 5 different colours that Rainbow Club offer to dye your shoes as pair of their wedding gift to you. I could just imagine the navy shoe with the beautiful shoe clip attached to it. So I filled in the form and posted them off, included within the colour pack was a pre-paid postage bag so it was really easy. Within 2 days of postage I received an email to say my shoes had arrived safe and they would be back with my within 3 weeks. In just under 2 weeks my beautiful navy Vivian shoes arrived back, I was not disappointed. A beautiful rich navy colour, you could not tell they had been dyed, no marks on the the sole from the dye. When I added the shoe clips I was in love hello Carrie Bradshaw.
Something new, something blue….
Did you know that not only do your Rainbow Club shoes not only can be used as your something new, they can also be used as your something blue too. As each pair of Rainbow Club shoes have a tiny blue gem stone set in the Rainbow Club logo underneath each shoe. Perfect if you are unsure what to use for your something blue.
