White lace high heels might not be the most versatile shoes out there, but no one can deny that they're a perfect fit for a bride on her wedding day. With a traditionally feminine look and a bit of vintage feel to them, lace shoes can look like an absolute dream alongside a wedding gown. They can add a bit of glamour and texture especially underneath a clean gown that is satin, silk, or crepe.

Discovering the perfect pair, however, means finding something that matches your gown—for example, if your gown is lace, you might not want to wear lace shoes unless you can be sure the pattern is exactly the same or coordinates really well. Comfort is always a nice plus with wedding shoes since you'll be wearing and standing in them for hours on end, which is why you might want to consider lace flats or even sneakers, too!

A few of our favorite designers to shop these pretty lace pairs include Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. You can also score an affordable yet equally stunning pair on sites such as Lulus. We especially love Bella Belle USA for an array of countless options beautifully designed for brides on their special days.

Whether you want something traditional and ultra-feminine, or something chic and stylish, you'll find it among the 15 pretty lace wedding shoes below.

What to Look for in Lace Wedding Shoes

Romantic, timeless, and undoubtedly bridal, there are countless reasons to choose lace wedding shoes. So, we don't blame you! Whether you're selecting a stiletto, block heel, flats, or even sneakers, the intricate and delicate designs of lace shoes make them a no-brainer for the big day. When it comes to choosing the pair that you'll wear to complete your bridal look, it starts with comfort. We're big believers that when you're uncomfortable, you're not your best self. It is your wedding day after all, and you'll want to remain present in the moment rather than focus on the throbbing of your feet. The best way to ensure comfort? Try out different pairs, consider gel inserts, and most importantly, break them in! Similarly, the logistics of wearing lace shoes may differ from other materials. The delicate, textured nature of lace may result in snagging on other objects or fabrics. Ensure that your dress has a silky lining or consider wearing a slip underneath your gown. Be aware that if your dress or shoes are adorned with embellishment such as sequins or rhinestones, it may be more likely to catch on the lace. Ultimately, you may have to be just a bit more careful, but overall lace shoes can be pretty comfortable and durable.

FAQ
  • Should you wear lace wedding shoes with a lace wedding dress?

    You can go the all-lace route if you want, but if you do, you should try matching the lace of your shoes to the lace of your dress. This might mean getting custom-made shoes.

  • Are lace shoes comfortable?

    The comfort level of your lace shoes really depends on the type of shoe it is and what it's made of. For example, lace sneakers are always going to be a more comfortable option compared to lace stilettos.

  • Are lace shoes expensive?

    Since white lace shoes are usually marketed as bridal shoes, they might be a little bit pricier. But it's still possible to find affordable lace heels, flats, and sneakers on sites or through designers with lower price points.
