When Carrie Bradshaw married Mr.Big in her blue Manolo Blahniks, it was a visionary fashion statement, empowering the bravest of brides to “step” out of the ordinary and leave their dyeable satin pumps in the dust. Four years later, blue wedding shoes have become as common as a Kardashian spin-off on E. This doesn’t faze true fashionistas, who are looking for new ways to express their style and originality. One of my new faves? Skyscraper platform pumps, like these babies from B Brian Atwood. With a modern, architectural edge, they’re arguably just as fierce as the bride who’s wearing them.
Not to worry, I’ve tracked down some equally enviable platform pumps for you to strut down the aisle in.
