The perfect complement to a breezy wedding dress? A pretty (and comfortable!) pair of warm-weather shoes.
A summer wedding is an opportunity for truly memorable fashion, whether you're getting married on the beach or a grassy, flower-filled garden. But outdoor locations tend to require comfortable footwear, which means sky-high stilettos are (usually) out of the question. But you shouldn't have to sacrifice style for comfort! To help you find the perfect complement to your wedding dress, we found 19 pairs of beautiful summer shoes — from lace-up sandals to girly flats to kitten-heels.
Luckily, the spring accessories collections are full of so many wedding-ready options — from the impossible-not-to-Instagram geometric metallic flats by Bionda Castana, to classic white lace Soludos espadrilles, which would be perfectly paired with a breezy boho wedding dress. If you're more of a glam girl, you'll love Delpozo's pink-and-black crinoline beaded flats. And if you're mantra is "there's no such thing as too much sparkle," consider walking down the aisle in embellished flat mules courtesy of Rochas. Beach brides saying "I do" on the sand should slip into Aquazzura's crystal flat sandals or Isapera's minimalist Yialos design.
And if you haven't found the right shoes to wear to your garden-party rehearsal dinner, look to Loeffler Randall's "Sofia" sandals and Tabitha Simoons' "Leticia" scalloped ankle-wrap shoes.
The best part about all of these wedding shoes? You will definitely wear them again after the wedding — perhaps on your honeymoon? Click through to see (and shop!) the sandals we love for weddings this summer.Illustration: Christina Park
