Now that my engagement photos are done, the dress is picked out and the florist is booked, the next step in my wedding planning process is to find a pair of iconic wedding shoes. I’m getting my dress altered in the beginning of August and it’s important that I bring the shoes I’m going to wear on the big day to the appointment so they can hem the dress correctly. A lot of my friends who are already married said they were surprised by how much their shoes showed up in the photos. So I want to make sure I find the perfect pair and I think I have.
Shoe designer Jay Kaplan has found a way to give shoe lovers everywhere the best of both worlds. His gorgeous shoes are Italian leather quality at made in China prices. I can tell you from experience that his shoes really do live up to that promise. Not only are the designs breathtaking, they also feel divine on your feet. I never thought it would be possible to wear a shoe like this on my wedding day or any day without dropping $800 at Neiman Marcus. But, now I can. While some shoes may give you the look of a high end shoe, Jay Kaplan’s collection gives you both the look and the quality for $100 or less.
After spending a fortune on invites, a venue, a dress, decorations and everything else you need for a wedding, it’s so refreshing to find a couture quality wedding shoe that’s just as stunning as it is affordable. I think I’m going to give my bridesmaids a break too by having them buy the Jay Kaplan – Madeline in Gold. Not only are they beautiful, but I know for sure that they’ll be able to wear them again. As for me, it was a tough choice, but I think I’m going to go with the Jay Kaplan – Riley for my wedding. You can check out more of the Riley’s lacy details in the photos below.
Even if you’re not in the market for a wedding shoe, Jay Kaplan has a ton of beautiful heels, flats and handbags all on Amazon Prime. At these prices, I plan on shopping more. Check out his full collection here and you’ll never have to drop an entire paycheck on a pair of shoes again.
