When it comes time to pick out wedding shoes, brides typically gravitate towards the traditional: white, lace, or maybe something a little bit embellished. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this, of course—especially since white matches a bridal gown perfectly—but if you want to do something different that works just as well, you might want to opt for nude wedding shoes.

Nude shoes work well with basically any kind of wedding gown, whether it's pure white, off-white, cream, blush, or a more vibrant color. They're subtle, yet versatile. When you go for white wedding shoes, you usually only wear them on your wedding night, because not only do they get dirty, but they also just look bridal. Nude shoes, on the other hand, don't scream "It's my wedding!" and won't stain as badly.

When looking for the perfect nude shoe, you'll want to search for something that is beautiful to look at, but also something that feels comfortable enough to withstand hours of standing, taking photos, and dancing. Here's a look at some of the best nude wedding shoes you can buy now.

The delicate bow detail on these shoes is subtle but special. It can also be worn two different ways: Place the bow strap in the front of your ankle for more of a mule style, or around the back of the foot as a slingback. We love either option.

  • What type of shoes should the bride wear?

    As the bride, you can wear any type of shoes you want, whether that's a pair of sky-high heels, open-toe sandals, glittering flats, or comfortable sneakers. Decide what you want to prioritize (maybe you want aesthetics over comfort, or vice versa), and go from there.

  • Should my wedding shoes match my wedding dress?

    Your shoes and dress should complement each other. But at the end of the day, you should wear whatever feels the most you!

  • Can I wear my wedding shoes after the wedding?

    Definitely. In fact, selecting wedding shoes that are versatile enough to be worn outside of your wedding night is a great idea and an excellent way to get the most out of the money you're spending. That's another advantage to nude shoes: They don't look like they were made specifically for your wedding night.
