Weddings can mobilize this hyper-enthusiastic side of ourselves that we didn't even know existed. Underneath the dazzling exterior of romance lies a foundation of months spent agonizing over the perfect person-to-passed-appetizer ratio. Then you have the show-stopping wedding dress — maybe even a reception dress — and all its fixings to top off this multitiered, fondant-covered stress cake. Even small items, like footwear, can be maximally important. You'll want comfy bridal shoes that are sturdy to glide you down the aisle without tripping, and that'll end up morphing into your dancing shoes.
Your gut may be telling you to prioritize function over fashion, but don't let it stop you from letting your wedding shoe wishlist run wild. There are plenty of comfortable wedding shoes out there that will fit any preference and budget. First, decide high is high enough — should you go for a block, kitten, or ballet flats? Also consider if you want something classic or more fashion-forward. How about embellishments, feathers, or any other fun details? If thinking about all those options sends your pre-wedding indecision higher than the backs of a 100mm pair of stilettos, rest assured. We've only picked the best in a wide variety of styles that all get high marks for comfort and style. Ahead, discover the most comfortable wedding shoes for brides that'll successfully allow you to strut, saunter, and waltz through your nuptials with feet that survive to tell the tale.
