When Jessica was getting married, she simply could not find a shoe that spoke to her for her most important day. First came the nuptials, then Jessica Bedard footwear was born. Jessica Bedard set out to design a collection that embodies all of the tradition, celebration and beauty of love.
I think every bride should have the perfect shoe for her special day. Like her dress, the accessories and the flowers, her shoes should be as exceptional as she is.
Each pair of Jessica Bedard shoes features something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.
First, the tradition is beautifully etched on each sole to represent Something Old. For Something New, that would be your Jessica Bedard shoes! The sole of the left shoe contains a magnetic ring and before a bride’s wedding – for good luck in her marriage – the bride can remove the ring and ship it in a small envelope that is tucked into the shoe box. This ring is then used on another pair of shoes destined for another Jessica Bedard bride. So truly Something Borrowed and every Jessica Bedard shoe is easily recognized by Something Blue, its light pastel, blue tip of the heel.
French-Canadian, shoe designer Bedard studied design in New York City and Milan, learning and working with the masters at the renowned Arsutoria School of Design, Italy. Today all Jessica Bedard shoes are manufactured in Italy at a world-renowned facility that produces some of the highest quality footwear in the world. Bedard designs the shoes with a team of professionals, who execute and manage every detail of the production process; from materials and components, technical constructions, through engineering techniques and manufacturing. All of the textiles and materials are meticulously sourced from Italy and the finest markets outside of the country.
The Jessica Bedard bridal collection is designed for a modern bride. Each collection features stunning styles for all seasons. Jessica mixes different textures such as patent and nappa leathers, texturized leathers, and fur with meticulous craftsmanship. Their contemporary, yet timeless design makes them wearable long after the wedding.
The Jessica Bedard collection is available at Panache Bridal Salons, retailing from $650 to $1300 (US).
