A gown might steal the show, but a pair of white wedding shoes really seal the deal for a bridal ensemble. If you're a footwear fanatic, then we're sure you've already drawn up a list of shoe options for the big day and the festivities leading up to it. However, if you haven't gotten around to picking out a pair of heels (or flats!), then there are a few things worth considering. 

First, heel height. If you're used to wearing high heels and enjoy the extra lift, then the sky's the limit. But if you generally opt for flats or a low block heel, consider a mid-length so you're not in pain by the end of the night. Another design detail to think about is the overall silhouette. Do you want to wear pumps? Perhaps an ankle-strap sandal? Or slingbacks? If you're not sure, refer back to your dress hemline and aesthetic. Your wedding dress can certainly determine what kind of shoes you should wear. We also know that finding the right accessory to compliment your look can be overwhelming, so if all else fails, remember this: A minimalist strappy sandal or a traditional pump works well with almost anything.

Ahead, discover 20 beautiful pairs of white wedding shoes you can wear to your wedding, bridal shower, bachelorette party, and beyond.
