The Perfect Mother of the Bride Shoes

Here at The Perfect Bridal Company we’re well known for our extensive wedding shoe collection, with everything from timeless classics to wedding shoes inspired by the latest trends. Did you know however, that we also have an impressively wide range of occasion shoes too? We want to help you find the perfect pair of shoes for every occasion, as well as the perfect pair for your wedding. So whether you’ve got an important evening event coming up, or a fancy lunch which requires a little outfit elevation; whether you’re a guest to the wedding of the year or taking a trip to Ladies Day, we’ve got you covered.

One of the many things we pride ourselves on is that we design our shoes to appeal to a wide range of styles and ages. We believe that everyone deserves to slip on their perfect pair of heels and feel amazing, so whether you go for a pair of flats, block heels or satisfyingly high stilettos- all our shoes are as comfy as they are beautiful so you don’t have to worry about a thing and can just focus on enjoying yourself!

Mother of the bride shoes can be tricky to find- companies sometimes fall into the trap of designing for a very traditional market and subsequently ending up with shoes which your grandma may have worn, but your mother certainly won’t! Or at the other end of the scale, as the mother of the bride you might find a pair of shoes which is the exact right colour and style, but is just too high or even worse, cheaply made- either way just equates to an uncomfortable experience which you definitely don’t want.

That’s where we come in. All of our beautiful occasion shoes can be worn effortlessly at any age, with a range of heel heights and styles to suit every taste. Looking for a classic court shoe? We’ve got it. Something super sparkly? We have a selection. A romantic and feminine bow shoe? Absolutely. In a comprehensive range of colours, we have mother of the bride shoes to compliment every outfit.. and if you’re after something particularly special or want to match a specific colour why not check out our custom shoe dyeing service?

Let’s look at three classic mother of the bride colours which work perfectly for your shoes.


However you pronounce it (torp/ tope?), taupe is one of those colours which just goes with everything. Softer than a metallic, taupe is every bit as versatile as a silver, gold or pewter and the blush tones give it a romantic and feminine edge. We have a great selection of taupe shoes in our occasion collection, from classic courts such as Parker (pictured below), to pretty bow shoe Margo (also below). Pick a matching taupe handbag from our beautiful bag collection and you’re good to go!

Pewter is one of those under rated colours which often gets overshadowed by it’s more dramatic counterparts- gold and silver. More subtle than gold but richer than silver, we love a bit of classic metallic pewter! This versatile, darker toned metallic is super versatile and a great choice if you have an outfit in a hard to match colour. Pewter goes with everything and being darker than silver also works really well as an evening shoe. Go for a pair of pure pewter such as our Olive points (pictured below), or mix with bronze for a truly sumptuous combination, as demonstrated perfectly in styles Candice and Nyla below!

You simply can’t beat a classic navy shoe, particularly for a wedding guest or mother of the bride. Softer than black but with equal elegance, navy is a great transitional colour which will see you through every season. This season we’ve introduced a brand new shade of navy, called midnight. This stunning colour has a really rich depth to it which we love to show off with an understated, beautifully cut classic court shoe such as Parker and Sutton (both pictured below with matching Simone clutch).
