As a wedding planner, working in the fast paced wedding industry is so exciting and rewarding. We are able to work alongside amazing brides and other wedding professionals who help us create exquisite events. However, all this fun, exciting work comes with some pain and suffering…of our feet!

Thankfully, there is finally a solution to all the aching heels and blisters. We have found the most comfortable pair of shoes to wear while working weddings, Tieks. These stylish ballet flats are so flexible and mold to your feet giving you all day comfort. No really, all day comfort! The flexibility allows them to fold into themselves to fit inside your purse so they can travel anywhere with you!


The co-founder of Tieks, Dikla, came up with the idea of a portable, comfortable shoe while working as a professor. She became tired of carrying a pair of flip-flops in her bag to trek across campus to escape the pain of walking in heels. And just like that, Tieks was born!

These sleek flats are hand stitched from Italian leather, making them durable and long lasting. They come in a rainbow of colors and patterns to fit every personality and wardrobe! Those of us in the industry have become great ambassadors for Tieks, we appreciate the comfort since we are on our feet all day long, but don’t have to compromise our style!

As a wedding planner, it’s so important for us to remain stylish and comfortable while working weddings. That is one reason we love Tieks, they are so versatile and go with everything. We can sport them downtown while grabbing coffee with a client, wear them to meetings with vendors, and of course wear them on the big day.


Even brides are wearing Tieks! On the website, Tieks has created a special page dedicated to brides where they can show off their Tieks wedding day look. Brides are wearing Tieks as their “something blue,” floating down the aisle in the Tiek Blue style. Other popular wedding colors include Romantic Blush, Diamond White Croc, Cream, and Ballerina Pink. Brides are even spoiling their bridesmaids with a pair for them to dance the night away! Popular colors for the bridesmaids are Metallic Pewter and Metallic Gold.




Tieks has created a unique way to market their flats. They mainly focus on word of mouth and use social media to reach a broader audience. Leigh Hopkins, a marketing coordinator at Tieks, said, “We want women to hear how great Tieks are directly from their friends and then fall in love with their first pair. Oprah heard about Tieks through word of mouth, now she has almost every style!”

Another reason we love Tieks is because they have made it a priority to empower women across the globe. Through Kiva, the world’s first online lending platform that connects lenders to entrepreneurs, The Gavrieli Foundation has committed nearly $1 million towards helping women entrepreneurs all over the world. Hopkins said, “Tieks believes empowering women is a requisite in the broader fight against global poverty.”

Tieks combines style, comfort, and versatility all wrapped up into a small blue box. These ballet flats are more than just a shoe, they are a statement. Hopkins said, “We have customers describe their Tieks as “heavenly” and many say it’s like they have nothing on their feet at all.” She also said, “Here at Tieks, we believe women shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort when it comes to footwear.”

Women everywhere are thankful for these amazing flats not only for the stylish comfort but for the company as well. Tieks is helping transform the lives of women world wide while pampering our “soles” all at the same time!

Weddings are the perfect social gathering for family and friends to come together and celebrate the bride and groom. Social media has become such a huge part of our lives that many of us cannot go more than fifteen minutes without check some form of social media. With the popularity of Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook sharing your life with others has become a norm in today’s society. It only makes sense to follow this trend and connect it to the biggest social gathering in your life, your wedding day!

The majority of couples getting married nowadays are creating a wedding website to inform guests of details, wedding registries, and more. However, with the fast pace growth of technology, websites are quickly becoming a trend of the past. With so many people owning smart phones and tablets the newest trend is to create a wedding app.


Consider creating a wedding app with Appy Couple. Appy Couple is a stylish way to create and publish your very own, customized wedding app and website with one easy step. There are so many great features with this app from photo galleries to managing your guest list. Appy Couple let’s you put everything together in one place: RSVP’s, wedding registries, hotels, events, social chatter, photos, wedding websites, and even toasts!

Sharing details about upcoming events is easier with Appy Couple because it puts everything in one place for you. Privacy settings allow you to share details about the Bachelorette Party and only guests attending that event will know all the surprises!

Appy Couple allows you to choose from over 400 designs to find the perfect one to coordinate with the overall look of your wedding. If you don’t find a design you like, you can customize one with Appy Couple’s in-house design team.


Often times, bridesmaids and groomsmen are meeting for the first time, help break the ice by posting a photo with their name and perhaps how you know them under the “People” tab in the app. When you set up your app it also creates a coordinating wedding website for guests who may not have a smart phone, that way everyone has access to the information and stays connected!

Another great feature is Appy Couple allows you to list a few local activities for out of town guests, hotel accommodations, and even parking information. The app also offers games, weather forecasts, and a countdown.


Appy Couple is very user friendly and is a perfect fit for all couples. It’s also convenient for all of your guests, they can access the app from their smart phone, iPad, tablet, and still access the website on a computer. Since it is so customizable, brides and grooms create everything to fit their event and personal needs making every app unique.

Anna Fine, a project manager at Appy Couple said, “We market ourselves as the most easy, social, and stylish way to share your wedding. We reach out to couples through all social media outlets and blogs. Many times, our couples are so excited to share what they have created, that often Appy Couple is promoted by our wonderful customers.”

At We Tie The Knots, we love to stay connected and organized. That’s why we love Appy Couple, because it combines the details and important information that guests need all in one place, with a stylish way to display it.  If you are interested in creating your own app, contact your local We Tie The Knots wedding planner to receive your special offer promo code and get connected with Appy Couple!
