A stiletto isn't the only special shoe. You'll want to walk down the aisle in a pair of fashionable and out-of-the-ordinary kicks that will perfectly complement your wedding dress — and, surprisingly, there are plenty of fancy flats available that will do just that. After all, you'll be running around all day, so you want to make sure you'll survive sans blisters from the first look to the after party.
Whether you hate wearing heels, want to manage a height difference between you and your fiancé, or feel like switching into a second pair before you hit the dance floor, there are many benefits to rocking a zero-to-two inch shoe on your wedding day.
Just make sure to choose a pair that feels special. (Translation: Your favorite nude work flats will not fit your wedding-day dress code!) Look for a design that features a metallic sheen, eye-catching crystal embellishments, or a romantic lace exterior. Also consider a pretty pop of color (hello royal blue satin Manolo Blahnik's), bridal bows (be it satin or rhinestone), and a healthy dose of glitter.
Whether you're a classic bride who gravitates towards an ivory flat with a girly adornment, or more of a glamour girl looking for something showstopping, there's an array of short-heeled shoes sure to satisfy your bridal style. From Valentino's iconic rockstud style (paging all edgy brides!), to a multi-colored pair of glittery Tabitha Simmons Mary Janes, an affordable beaded Topshop sandal, or a bridal blush ankle-strap Zara design, we've found a flat that will make you — and your feet — happy.
