Wedding Wednesday: Sole Notes

Here is an easy tradition to make a bride's wedding shoes even more special...

Bridesmaids write notes, wishes and prayers for the bride on the bottom of her weddings shoes.

This is the sort of idea that would be so sweet and thoughtful for a bridesmaid to offer up. All you have to do is bring a pen!

I'm not sure where this idea comes from.
I've only seen this done a few times. Google didn't have an answer as to where the tradition originated, but I did find some other variations:

-Groom surprises bride with  sweet love note on the soles of her shoes. Not sure what to write? How about lyrics to your first dance song, part of your vows just a simple heartfelt note of how excited you are to spend the rest of your lives together. 

-Bride writes notes of thanks on her bridesmaids shoes. This would be great way to personalize the gift if you're buying your bridesmaids their shoes.


What do you think? Is this the sort of thing you and your friends would appreciate?

  1. A friend's nanny mom bought her her wedding shoes as a wedding gift. The little girl she nannied was only 2 so the mom had the little girl stamp all over the bottom of the shoes with different color dots. That was her way of signing the shoes- so sweet!! Your post reminded me of this!

  3. I think this is an adorable idea! It's a sweet keepsake, though I would be concerned about the guests being able to see the soles while she walked down the aisle (that's my mom's voice in my head). I doubt it would be an actual problem, especially if the dress is long and drags.

    Thanks for linking up this week my dear!
