The most comfortable wedding shoes all brides should know about

No matter how tempting it might be to reach for sky-high stiletto heels on your big day, picking the most comfortable wedding shoes is key if you plan on being the very last person left on the dance floor. After all, you’ll likely spend pretty much the whole day on your feet — from the walk down the aisle and stand-up ceremony, to the cocktail hour and endless posed photos. You need something that’ll see you through it all.

Contrary to popular belief, it’s completely possible to find comfortable wedding shoes without having to sacrifice on style. If you’re hoping to avoid heels, ballet pumps and Mary Janes make suitably elegant alternatives — while modern courthouse brides with chic short wedding dresses can easily swap the uncomfortable courts or spindly stilettos for slingbacks or wide platform heels. Plus, sandals and wedges feel like a an aesthetic yet practical pick for brides with boho wedding dresses, who are getting married on the beach.

Whatever your style, we guarantee you’ll the perfect pair of wedding shoes for your big day in this edit. Although there’s definitely no harm in packing some Compeed plasters in your clutch bag — just in case of any emergencies.
