Looking For Your Wedding Day Custom Wedding Shoes?
Ellie Wren and Benjamin Walk Have Teamed Up To Create You The Perfect Pair of Custom Wedding Shoes
It’s been some time since this blog has seen some fresh content, but while we may have been quiet on the surface there has been a lot of exciting custom wedding shoe news bubbling up underneath! Today we are so very pleased to announce that Ellie Wren has teamed up with Benjamin Walk to bring truly unique custom wedding shoe designs to more brides around the world. The combination of Benjamin Walk’s long history of great wedding shoe style and Ellie Wren’s experience in transforming classic wedding shoes into one-of-a-kind originals is sure to lead to some really amazing wedding shoe things!
What Exactly Are Custom Wedding Shoes?
Custom wedding shoes can mean different things to different brides, but at Ellie Wren we believe that’s exactly the point. We work with brides on all different kinds of bridal styles, color choices and senses of wedding fashion. So, whether you’re a bride looking for a truly unique pair of custom wedding shoes (perhaps emerald green wedding wedges with pearl buttons or navy blue peep toes with a matching bow on the back and a special message on the sole) or a bride looking for something more traditional like an ivory peep toe with a beautiful brooch on the toe, we’ll have you covered. Through our (now combined) efforts, Ellie Wren and Benjamin Walk will have thousands of stylish wedding shoe options in countless colors that can be further customized for each bride at her request with hand-dyed laces; sparkling crystals; handmade flowers, bows and buttons and hand-painted details. Best of all, this partnership will enable us to do all of this across all wedding budgets and serve more of each bride’s wedding needs, including outfitting her bridesmaids, maid-of-honor, mother, soon-to-be mother-in-law and flower girl with fabulous shoes.
How Do I Design My Custom Wedding Shoes?
To get started designing custom wedding shoes, brides should visit Ellie Wren’s Design Studio. Here they’ll see Benjamin Walk’s collection of wedding shoe styles, the color palette and all of Ellie Wren’s custom wedding shoe adornment options. With a few simple clicks, brides can select the custom wedding shoe elements that appeal to them the most and communicate those to a member of the design team. This is just an initial step, so that the design team can get a sense of the bride’s bridal style – brides should not feel that they have to design the final shoe in this step. The Design Studio will also prompt brides to share some information about their wedding – the date, their budget, details about the flowers, the dress and the location. All of these wedding day details can serve as inspiration for a truly unique pair of wedding shoes. Once this information is submitted, a member of the design team will reach out to each bride and work one-on-one with her to refine her selections.
Brides looking for more traditional wedding shoes can skip the Design Studio and visit Benjamin Walk’s sister-site, Dyeables.com where they can browse through hundreds of different styles, all of which can be ordered in any color with a few simple clicks. These options are also great for outfitting a wedding party. Brides can do something fun like picking the color but letting the bridesmaids each pick out the style of shoe that suits them best.
For brides that are still in the early stages of planning and still thinking through their options, Ellie Wren can still help! Be sure to check out our Be Inspired page where we post dozens of custom wedding shoe designs that we’ve done in the past. Brides can also follow us on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook where we actively share wedding ideas, wedding inspiration and information about deals and specials. Or, to just stay in touch, brides can sign up to receive our monthly newsletter, Inspired Bride.
