Brides, let’s start with a simple question: do you expect that you’ll wear your wedding gown again? Because as many times as we’ll squint and say it’s possible, lbh, it’s not really probable. In truth, that gorgeous gown will hang in your closet for years, catching your eye every once in a while and bringing you right back to the day you said ‘I Do.’ A beyond-beautiful memory from a likewise beautiful day. Your shoes on the other hand, can and should be pieces of fashion that have a nice long run before they retire - bringing that hyped-up and infinitely happy feeling you had on your wedding day with you at every turn. Well, Galia Lahav, the Tel Aviv-based brand that’s responsible for the majority of our daily Insta double tapping, just launched a brand new bridal shoe collection that steps up to the post-wedding wear plate in a big way. You’re going to want to check them out 👇.
Six styles, three words: they’re so[le] good.
Available to shop now on the designer’s site, the 6-style Bridal Shoe Collection caters to the fashion-forward bride for whom every exquisite detail on her wedding day has been considered. Galia Lahav brides can now enhance their bridal experiences by accessorizing their gowns with their shoes - for an even more customized look.
Following up on the recent launch of the Pret-A-Porter collection, the brand wanted to continue putting its best foot forward with an extension that would meet a bride’s total wardrobe needs. The versatile Bridal Shoe Collection isn’t just for the walk down the aisle, nope: the range takes a bride from her engagement party to her bridal shower, rehearsal dinner to the reception and right on through the rest of her happily-married life.
How can ‘bridal’ shoes break the mold and have moments long after the vows?
Well, it’s easy when the shoes say fashion first and bridal next - and not the other way around. To develop the new collection, Galia Lahav collaborated with the best design talents in the fashion world to translate the essence of the Couture bridal line into footwear. Produced in Italy using the leading manufacturing techniques and the finest materials, the shoe range is crafted from soft nappa leather, rich crepe satin, subtle calf suede, elegant lace, and glittery tulle in shades of ivory and silver.

Crepe satin, lace, and tulle are decidedly bridal, sure, but when you couple them with ‘mainstream’ mainstays like leather and suede, the look says ‘bridal’ when it needs to and ‘fashion’ for the forever afterward.
We’re smitten kittens about ALL of it.
Sorry, we just had to…
