This past Spring I teamed up with Rescue Flats to create a wedding shoe bar. While it might be something you’ve never considered a shoe bar is one of the most thoughtful things you can provide guests at your reception. There’s nothing like wearing shoes all day and arriving to a wedding reception on sore, tired feet. By providing guests with a bevy of Rescue Flats you can guarantee they will dance all night and remain comfortable and stylish while doing so! Today I am going to break down exactly how to create a shoe bar at your wedding, including different table and display styles.
TABLE STYLESWhen choosing a table for your shoe bar I suggest going with a long side table. Using a side table gives you the space you need to lay out the different shoe sizes. For my shoe bar I chose a side table with drawers so that the shoes could be displayed on the table top and tucked inside the drawers. Choosing a more open style with three shelves like the gold and dark wood styles above will give you more space. You could use the different shelves to display different shoe sizes or even provide a shelf where guests can store their heels in Rescue Flat shoe bags.
STANDS AND BASKETSRescue Flats come in several beautiful shades and are tied with adorable bows. They are made to be displayed so you need to find a way to showcase them that doesn’t hide their cute look. I used wire cake stands to display my shoes but whicker or wire baskets are also a great choice. There’s nothing worse than setting up a cute display and having guests throw everything in disarray as they look for their shoe size. By using a basket, stand, or bowl that is semi-clear, guests will be able to see the shoe they want easily.
The last element you need to complete your wedding shoe bar is signage. A sign letting guests know to grab a pair of Rescue Flats should be displayed near your table. Then you could include signs showing the different shoe sizes and even a sign letting guests know to leave their heels behind. Anything that makes it easier for guests to understand that you want them to grab a pair of shoes and get dancing! (You can grab my free printable shoe bar sign in this post.) I particularly like the wood signs above and also love the idea of a custom design. Click Here to see even more photos of our wedding shoe bar with Rescue Flats!
