Flower-clad shoes for blushing brides

Flowery bridal shoesThey’re the shoes every bride should make a beeline for – unless she suffers from hay fever.

 

Florist Nikola Mihailovic is rushed off his feet providing wedding day shoes for brides, which he painstakingly decorates with real flowers.

 

Mihailovic, from Gornji Milanovac in Serbia, travels to weddings with a small battery-powered fridge to keep the blooms fresh until the moment the bride walks down the aisle.

 

“Every girl wants to look like a princess on her wedding day and I’ve found a great way for them to feel that way,” he says.

 

“It started when I did them for a friend and people kept asking and asking. I have customers all over the world and had to send a pair to Egypt recently with a freezer because of the local heat.”

 

This idea might seem a little silly, but it shows how far brides will go to incorporate flowers into their wedding. Flower-infused wedding cakes are another example.
