One of the best things about many satin wedding shoe designs is that they are dyeable. This means they can be dyed a specific colour either before or after your wedding day. If you are thinking of dyeing your wedding shoes, our team are on hand to provide the best advice and tips on going about it. Read on to find out more!
Why Dye Your Wedding Shoes?
There are many reasons why you might choose to dye your wedding shoes. The first being you want to add a pop of colour to your bridal attire! More and more brides than ever are opting for colour in their wedding look and decor, and we are here for it! Dyeing your wedding shoes is a fun way of introducing colour to your style, whether you just want a flash of colour here and there or prefer to include a whole spectrum of colours on your big day.
Another reason why people dye their wedding shoes is to give them a whole new lease of life. Many brides find their wedding shoes are relegated to a cupboard after the big day, never to be seen again. Dyeing your wedding shoes is a quick, easy and affordable way to transform your wedding shoes into occasion shoes that can be worn over and over again for many years to come. Not only is this practical, but sustainable, too, and will save you money in the long run!
How To Dye Wedding Shoes
Option 1 - Do It Yourself
If you are the type of person who likes to do things themselves, there are several DIY satin dye kits available specifically for this purpose. These kits can be used on satin shoes and handbags and generally come with specialist satin dye and a brush or sponge for easy application.
As all of these kits differ in how you use them to get the best results. As a general rule, we recommend applying more than one coat of dye depending on the colour you are looking to achieve, but always refer to the instructions for the best results.
Option 2 - Use A Shoe Dyeing Service
Using a wedding shoe dyeing service is the fastest, most efficient way of customising your satin shoes. When you use these types of services, you simply pick the shade of colour you like, send your shoes off to be dyed and then enjoy them when they arrive. Simple!
Another great benefit to using a specialised service to dye your wedding shoes is if you can’t find a shade you like from the offered colour list, you can often send in a swatch and have them dyed to that exact colour. While DIY dyeing your wedding shoes might save you some money, unless you are an expert in doing this type of thing yourself, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to colour match with the same precision as these types of services.
