We know that choosing footwear on a day-to-day basis is hard enough for us ladies – never mind choosing shoes for THE day! Especially with the endless options available. Whether you're opting for an intimate back garden vibe, ultra chic ciivil ceremony, or a destination wedding – we've rounded up 12 perfect pairs of wedding shoes for every bridal style, venue, and budget.
Looks aside, your main priority should be your comfort. From sashaying down the aisle to shimmying on the dance floor, the last thing you want to have to think about is painful shoes or worse blisters! Luckily for brides who aren’t confident in vertigo inducing heels, flat styles can be just as chic. To help narrow down the abundance of options available, look to your wedding dress and venue for inspiration. If you’ve opted for a beach bound destination wedding, you might feel like a breathable woven linen pump a or block heel is the best option (and perfect for dancing in the sand!). Brides looking to up the ante at their black-tie nuptials will love investment pieces like mules and slingbacks crafted from fine satin and encrusted with pearls and crystals. Our fashionista’s having that city hall wedding might opt for pointed leather mules or a pair of ankle booties.
Ahead, the best wedding shoes from classic pumps to satin sandals to embellished flats and more!
