Every girl grows up dreaming of her wedding day, that once-in-a-lifetime moment when she marries Prince Charming in the dress and a pair of picture-perfect shoes. And, like every bride-to-be or missus will tell you, finding the prince is one thing, but the dress and shoes are a whole other struggle – and it’s real.
Enter: The world’s largest shoe retailer, Level Shoe District, which offers for the first time a special bridal selection for future brides. In collaboration with eight luxury footwear designers, Level’s bridal series includes 20 standout designs from brands Aquazzura, DSquared2, Gianvito Rossi, Nicholas Kirkwood, Rupert Sanderson, Paul Andrew, Aennis Eunis, and Sophia Webster.

“I love that these shoes are covered in feathers, making them quite different form what the typical bride would wear.”
“The DSqaured2 shoes are feminine, vintage, and elegant. I would definitely dress them down with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a white shirt.”
Dana Abdelhadi, Managing Partner of Expose Communications
“Aquazzura is my favorite shoe designer! I love how elegant yet not so typical they made me feel. They set the perfect mood. These would make any bride feel not too serious allowing her to just have fun.”
“Oh these shoes deserve more than just one night out. I would wear neutral colored shorts with a shirt, and throw on these heels for a night out.”
Minna J. Apostolovic, Head of PR and Communications of Ayyam Gallery
“Surrounded by my girlfriends, I was laughing a lot and just having a great time getting ready. I was pretty relaxed but also very excited, and just enjoying every minute.”
“These Sophia Webster shoes have gorgeous embellishments on the heels, and they were extraordinarily comfortable too. I danced in them shoes all night!”
Zeina Abdalla, Founder and Managing Director of Fishfayce, Co-Founder of Moushii.com
“My best friends had traveled from all parts of the world and were there with me, helping me into my dress and keeping me laughing every step of the way.”
“I loved the simplicity of the shoes; the thin straps re fun and flirty. I think they are a great choice for any bride who wants to wear a shoe that is a bit more modern on her wedding day.”
Deema Dajani, Founder of Dulce D Bakery
“Timeless, elegant, and comfortable, I chose these shoes because they’re simple yet unique, and definitely classy.”
“I’ll be wearing these Paul Andrew sling-backs again a simple Audrey Hepburn-style cocktail dress, pearl earrings, and a Nathalie Trad clutch that would compliment the shoes perfectly.”
Dana Malhas, Co-Founder and Buyer of Cream Jeddah
“I was surprisingly very calm on my wedding day. Everyone (including myself) expected me to be a bridezilla, but I was the exact opposite.”
