How one pair of shoes became my new career!

My husband Scott and I were planning our wedding on a small budget and every penny counted. Being an artsy person I decided to take on a lot of the wedding projects on my own because I wanted to save money and I just wanted to be creative in the planning process. I made all my flower arrangements, created the favors, designed and printed our invitations, designed the bridesmaid dresses and had them sewed by a local name it, I did it! When it came to finding shoes to go with my wedding dress I wasn't having much luck. I looked everywhere, even on Etsy, and couldn't find what I was looking for... or if I found something it was way out of my price range. Then it hit me, why don't I just design my own shoes? I bought a plain pair of flats and decorated them. They were so comfortable and all through my wedding my guests kept coming up to me asking to see my shoes and saying I should sell them. After the wedding was over and life went back to normal I though "Why not?" I've been happily designing and decorating gorgeous shoes ever since :)

My shop is about much more than making money. I take great pride in everything I make and put my artistry into. I am a total perfectionist! Creating a high quality and gorgeous product for every single one of my brides is what I am all about.

Additional policies and FAQs
DISCLAIMER (added 7/24/16)
I design all of my styles to have smooth transitions in order to minimize the possibility of any part of the design to catch on your dress. Certain kinds of dress material may have a higher chance of catching on an aspect of the design. By placing your order, you are accepting this risk and Beholden Bridal is not responsible should this occur. As a side note, this has happened exactly 1 time in over 2700 sales to date.
