There’s a lot that goes into a wedding look, from the gown (or suit) to the jewelry and shoes. And while your day-of shoes might be one of the last details you consider, they are one of the most important accessories to keep in mind. That said, after selecting your dream outfit and jewelry, you might come to find that your budget has dwindled. Luckily there are plenty of fantastic wedding shoe options under $100 to choose from that are not only super stylish but also reasonably priced.
Now before you start shopping, there are a few things to keep in mind. Even though your shoes might not be on display quite as much as, say, your wedding dress, selecting a pair that compliments your aesthetic and keeps you comfortable is essential. You don’t want to throw on a pair the day of only to find they rub in all the wrong places as you’re heading down the aisle. That’s why purchasing your shoes with enough time to test them out and break them in is a must. Additionally, you’ll want to consider your preferred type of event shoe—meaning, if you’re not used to sky-high stilettos, now’s not the time to veer from your normal heel height (not without plenty of time to practice walking in them, that is).
The good news is there are tons of budget-friendly wedding shoe options under $100 for every bridal style. Pulled from the most beloved brands with rave reviews, these 23 wedding shoe options will have you feeling like a million bucks for less than $100.

What to Look for When Shopping for Wedding Shoes
Before ordering your wedding shoes, there’s a lot you’ll want to consider. Not only should your shoes match your day-of and personal aesthetic, but you’ll want to consider the terrain of your venue and your tolerance for heels as well. Grass and sand don’t work well with stilettos and if you’re not used to high heels, don't wear them. Select a style that feels true to you and be sure to order them well in advance. Lastly, while you might want to match your wedding shoes to your dress style, you could also consider pairing a glam shoe with a more understated dress, or sneakers with a ballgown for a unique twist.
Where can I find wedding shoes under $100?
While you might not get a high-end designer pair of shoes for under $100, you’d be surprised just how many options are out there, no matter your style preference. Department stores, outlets, and online searches are a great way to find budget shoes, especially during sales!. You might find a pricier pair within your budget if you buy at the right time.
Why should I get budget-friendly wedding shoes?
There’s no need to spend tons of cash on a pair of wedding shoes, especially if you don’t naturally covet designer labels or special heels. A simple, non-designer option that matches your dress will still look stunning in pictures and will save you a lot of cash.
How can I save money when shopping for wedding shoes?
In addition to shopping (and staying) on budget when selecting your wedding shoes, another money-saving trick is to consider versatility. Consider buying a pair you can wear again, like a nude mule or tan ballet flat. Classic shoes that can easily become part of your wardrobe, post-wedding, will ensure you get the most value for your purchase.
