The Look: TOMS wedding shoes

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today's post is more of a continuation of one we wrote a few weeks ago about designer wedding shoes. We originally had included this fabulous brand in that post as an unexpected designer shoe choice, but we were so CRAZY about and inspired by TOMS we thought it deserved its own post!

Just because it's labelled "designer" does't mean it has to have an unforgiving heel. So, go ahead and rock a rad (and mercifully comfortable) pair of sparkly sneakers like these on your wedding day or better yet, share the love and give them as gifts to your bridesmaids.

I am excited to say, I actually had one of the first pairs of TOMS when they launched back in 2006. I was working at In Touch Weekly and had launched that publication and Blake, Founder & Chief Shoe Giver was a friend and I assisted in placing some of the first pairs of TOMS shoes in In Touch Weekly. To see the booming success Blake has had with TOMS and how they have hit the bridal scene is very exciting and we here at Raina Dawn Events are especially excited about today's post! So be sure to check out below as well and share your photos with us - we promise to post them - if you have incorporated TOMS shoes in your big day!

To top it off you remember you are giving back and helping children in need. On a day you are likely to spending lots of money on flowers and celebrating, you can feel great about giving back to those so much less fortunate. Check out these neat ways to include TOMS and giving on your wedding day! Download their toolkit here... and check out their ideas!


1 Wear TOMS to your wedding!
2 TOMS for your wedding party — even better — everyone in TOMS!
3 Have friends and family sign a pair of TOMS asyour guestbook.
4 Include the TOMS mission in your wedding program.
5 Throw a pair of TOMS instead of a bouquet!

Last, but not least... again, we would love you to email us at if you have incorporated TOMS shoes in your wedding day! We would love to share the photos and give other brides & grooms ideas and inspiration- be sure to email us and share with everyone!!
