For many brides, their wedding day is one of the most highly-anticipated events of their lives. Growing up and watching fairytales, plenty of people have dreamt about one day donning their own princess dress and dancing the night away with their one true love. And if you’ve been envisioning a celebration straight out of a storybook, finding ways to incorporate the whimsy of the tales is a symbolic way to celebrate your journey. One of our favorite ways to do this is with a pair of stunning, Cinderella wedding shoes.
While Cinderella’s famous slippers are technically made of glass, we, of course, don’t recommend going that route. However, there are tons of options that give a glass-like look, with a sturdy and comfortable foundation to wear all day when it comes time to say "I do."
From exact replicas to modern takes on princess styles, we've rounded up 11 Cinderella wedding shoe options—ranging from stilettos to flats and sneakers—that will give you those happily-ever-after feelings even after the clock strikes twelve.

What are Cinderella wedding shoes?
Cinderella wedding shoes are typically either clear, blue, or jewel-encrusted to give off a glass slipper-like quality. Generally, they’re much more comfortable than the glass pair the to-be princess wore at the ball.
Can I wear Cinderella shoes to my wedding?
Anyone can wear Cinderella wedding shoes to their wedding, even if they’re not having a fairytale-themed event. These are a great way to add a touch of whimsy to your day-of look, and since they're typically clear, they generally go with any wedding dress or ensemble.
Are Cinderella wedding shoes expensive?
As with all shoes, Cinderella wedding shoes vary in price, which means you'll be able to find a wonderful option within your budget. While some brides choose to splurge on a designer label for their big day, there’s no reason to break the bank for a fairytale look if your budget doesn’t allow it!
