40 Wedding Shoes For Every Venue

From beach to garden, city, and even winter mountainside

Polina Vinogradova

You've booked your wedding venue and said yes to your wedding dress—phew!—but there's still one big decision to make: your wedding shoes. Of course you'll choose your wedding shoes based on how they look and feel (hello all night dancing!) but just like searching for your destination wedding dress, it's wise to keep your venue and the terrain in mind. Think block heels or flats for a garden wedding and sandals that can stand up to sandy beaches. These may seem like obvious choices but this is your big day and you deserve your shoes to look fab and be comfortable.

Sidewalk, grass, sand or snow, wherever you're getting hitched, scroll down below to find the perfect wedding shoes to compliment your wedding dress and venue.

City sidewalks can handle just about any type of shoe so whether you're getting married in a grand church or at a chic courthouse, go ahead and experiment with heel heights and decide if you want old world glam or something modern and sleek

Beach Venue

If you'll be saying your "I dos" with your feet in the sand, look for a flat sandal. If your wedding isn't physically on the beach, you can't go wrong with an elevated wedge, a woven raffia block heel or anything that is easy to slip off when the afterparty heads to the beach!
