The perfect wedding shoes will complement your attire and also make a statement without being too overwhelming. You probably don't want your shoes overshadowing your dress, even if you do want them to stand out a bit. For this reason, pearl wedding shoes can be a lovely option. Pearl embellishments come off as elegant, timeless, and beautiful. They have a bit of a vintage flair, and they add a little something extra to your look!

You can opt to get shoes that only feature subtle pearl details, like sandals with pearls all over the straps or a pair of pumps with one large pearl accent. You can also go in the opposite direction, like opting for clear vinyl shoes that feature pearls all osomver your foot. We've found a wide variety of options for pearl wedding shoes that will photograph beautifully and add something timeless to your wedding day outfit. Take a look below.
