Wedding Shoes That Will Make You Do a Double Take
Here, we offer up our favorite wedding shoes for brides. Whether you’re looking for classic ivory, or something blue, we’ve got you covered.
You’ve chosen a 6-tier white cake with raspberry filling. You’ve selected three different rose varieties for your bouquet. You’ve even made a playlist of songs for the band. But the one detail you haven’t decided on yet? The shoes you’ll wear walking down the aisle. Picking the perfect pump, slipper, or sandal for your gown may feel daunting because, after all, the options are virtually endless. However, we’ve narrowed it down to a few nuptial shoe styles that work for every bride—from those who want to stay flat-footed as they say ‘I do’, to the those who need her feet to be comfortable as she dances the night away, to even those who’d like to wear her something blue on her feet. Check out these eleven gorgeous styles, and good luck committing to only one.
Stone-Embellished Strappy Shoes

We love to see a little bit of sparkle peeping just beneath the hem of a wedding gown as the bride takes her walk down the aisle.
Traditional Lace Pumps

Made with the most classic of wedding day fabrics, delicate lace, these pointed-toe pumps are just as feminine as they are intricate.
Sparkling Nude Sandals

These flesh-toned heels won’t distract from your wedding gown. And if you’d like to be thrifty, they can also double rehearsal dinner shoes—we won’t tell!

Have a comfy—but pretty—change of shoes waiting for you on the dance floor. We love these embellished flat sandals because nothing looks better than pulling off your favorite moves pain-free.
Heels Tied with a Bow

Bows will always be prim and proper, but these Kate Spade heels also offer up a little bit of sparkly fun.
Satin and Lace Wedges
BUY IT: Blue by Betsy Johnson Alisa, $139.95; zappos.com
An outdoor wedding calls for shoes that won’t sink into the lawn. Go for elegant wedges, which will keep you atop of the grass and not sinking into it as stilettos tend to do.
BUY IT: Badgley Mishka Gigi, $185; zappos.com
Perfect for the brides who don’t want to tower over their groom as they say “I do,” these flats don’t lack on sophistication or style.
Modern Metallic Cage Heels
BUY IT: Vince Camuto Devin 2, $160; zappos.com
A metallic shoe, like this, is not only the perfect compliment to your wedding day ivory; it will also compliment almost everything else in your wardrobe.
Blue Shoes with a Satin Tie
BUY IT: Alice + Olivia Dominque, $325: zappos.com
We’re declaring these the perfect winter wedding shoes. The suede texture is apt for the season, the lace up satin ties add femininity, and of course, the deep navy hue takes care of the bride’s something blue.
BUY IT: Pelle Moda Evlin Rose, $145; zappos.com
If you don’t want to be too matchy-matchy, try a shoe in a soft blush hue. These, with rosettes on the toes, will give your day an extra air of romance.
