Decisions, decisions, decisions! Planning a wedding is all about them and if you've already secured your dream wedding dress, the time has come to make a decision about your wedding shoes. Whether you're opting for a backyard bash, chic courthouse nuptials, or a destination wedding–we've found the perfect pair of wedding shoes for every bridal style, venue, and budget.
To help narrow down the abundance of options available, look to your wedding dress and venue for inspiration. If you're having a winter wedding at a venue with a snowy backdrop, consider lace booties or sumptuous velvet pumps. Summer brides opting to wear a short wedding dress should seize the opportunity to showcase their wedding shoes and pick styles in easy, breezy fabrics like raffia and woven linen. Brides looking to up the ante at their black-tie wedding will love investment pieces like mules and slingbacks crafted from fine satin and encrusted with pearls and crystals. Still searching for your "Something Blue"? We've got you covered there too with styles in the most beautiful shades of blue from dusty pastel to deep navy. And of course, there is no shame in playing it safe with a pair of timeless white pumps–they're a classic for a reason!
Lastly, when it comes to choosing the right wedding shoes for you, take into consideration the level of comfort you're going for. If you know that you can't walk very far in heels but you've just got to have those sky-high stilettos, opt to have a pair of flats or even sneakers handy to change into. For brides getting married on grass or sand, look for sandals with sturdy block heels. Not only are they supremely comfortable, but you won't have to worry about your heels sinking into the ground–win, win!
