As a bride to be, pretty much any occasion to dress up and show off your fiancé status is an exciting one. From your engagement party to your bridal shower and bachelorette getaway, a soon-to-be-wed look is a perfect way to channel your excitement. You know, an all-white outfit with on-theme heels, jewelry, and that just-engaged glow? Yep, it’s exciting and puts a spring in your step if you’re not usually one to dress up very often. In the warmer months (or for those who live in a perfect climate year-round...#goals), summer sandals are idyllic for punctuating a bridal look with an easy, breezy effect, from comfortable flats to easy-to-wear block heels and wedges.

While we love super festive sandals with pompoms, embroidery and in bright colors in the summer, the bridal sandal is best and most versatile when you keep it rather simple (and no, this does not equate to boring). Think minimal or classic silhouettes and pared-back designs—this is especially key if you plan to wear the same pair of sandals with several bridal-themed outfits. Right now, lace-up sandals are particularly on-trend for the season as well as toe-ring shapes and ‘90s-inspired square-toe silhouettes. In white, tan, beige or metallic shades, a simple sandal will feel perfectly bridal while exuding a stylish and sophisticated vibe no matter what you wear it with. A neutral espadrille is another winning and versatile choice that channels the ease of summer in a feminine way (it’s great for your wedding guests, too!).

For brides-to-be craving a sandal with more impact, subtle pops of color and print, crochet and lace detailing, or embellishments like bows and sleek hardware will feel extra-special and not as though you went overboard with your footwear. Trendy PVC is another style to consider that’s both on-trend and versatile with any outfit you throw on while sandals made from raffia will set a particularly sunny tone—our pick for brides with a wanderlust spirit.

While sandals are an excellent footwear choice for all of your wedding-related events ahead of the big day (heck, you can wear them under your wedding dress, too!), they’re also perfect for packing in your suitcase for your honeymoon. How’s that for justifying a few new pairs?

Here, we rounded up 68 gorgeous summer sandals that are perfect for every bridal event on your agenda from the engagement party to the rehearsal dinner and maybe even the wedding, too! Whether you’re the metallic-loving type, are on-board with the minimalist trend or want something feminine and classic, we’ve included options for every desire. Oh, and we found a plethora of affordable options, starting at just $10 (yes, $10!) with designer variations in the mix as well. You’ll probably want to scoop up a few pairs, you know, for good measure. Now go show off that pedicure!
