For most brides, coordinating a wedding wardrobe is one of the most exciting things to do when preparing to get married. Once a dress has been chosen, the next step is to select the best pair of shoes. And if sparkly wedding shoes are a must-have on your wedding list, then we are here to help! No matter if you’re hosting a beach wedding, a casual ceremony, or a black-tie affair, there's a shimmering option fit for brides of all styles.

Those looking to add major shine and sparkle to their look, opt for heels with all-over glitter and rhinestones. And if the thought of wearing heels at your wedding doesn’t excite you, remember that there are no rules when it comes to your big day. Instead of donning heels, look for flats or sneakers with lots of embellishments. This way, you’ll have comfort without sacrificing style. Shoes with kitten heels and block heels, with crystal adornments, are also a great alternative to glittery pumps and stilettos. But then again, if heels are your usual modus operandi, there are a multitude of options to choose from.

Ahead, we’ve compiled 29 of the most stylish and sparkly wedding shoes for every budget, comfort level, and wedding venue.

FAQ
  • Can I wear sparkly wedding shoes?

    Absolutely; though it may be traditional to wear white or neutral nude shoes with your wedding dress, adding embellishments, glitter, and other types of adornments will help elevate all shoes of any style and color. You don't have to stick to the basics!

  • Which type of sparkly wedding shoes should I wear?

    For spring and summer backyard or park weddings, flats, wedges, and block heels will prevent you from sinking into the grass; the same goes for beach weddings, where you can also wear embellished flip-flops. For an indoor, black-tie affair, elegant stilettos will make a statement, and if you're getting married in the colder months, a closed-toed shoe is optimal.

  • How do I match my shoes to my dress and accessories?

    While it's more common to stick with one metal color when accessorizing, you can always experiment with mixed metals and embellishments for a bolder look. That being said, if you mix it up, make sure your accessories complement each other.
