When it comes to wedding heels, sometimes the beauty is worth the pain. Even though most people won’t see your shoes on your wedding day, they can be a big part of completing your look!

Show off your style on your wedding day– whether you decide to sport calluses and blisters on your honeymoon by wearing sexy stilettos, or showcase your personality with a rebellious pair of chucks, your shoes are an extension of you! We’ve provided you with some great ideas when it comes to choosing your wedding day shoes.

There is nothing like the confidence that a great pair of high heels gives you. Your guests may not have the privilege of seeing a stunning pair of stilettos like these, but you’ll be able to strut down the aisle knowing that you look great–and feel great!– even if they do leave a few marks behind on your heels and toes. Our advice if you decide to go with heels? Break them in first! Though you won’t want to go outside and risk getting a speck of dirt on your beloved pumps, practice walking around your house and get your feet used to the height. You don’t want to accidentally step on your gown and trip as you ascend or descend the stairs at your venue, and you know what they say– practice makes perfect.

Not every foot is made for heels, and for those brides who are taller, flats may work better with your gown so you don’t have to add extra material. There are lots of great options when it comes to choosing a flat– you can wear sandals for a beach or summer wedding, pack away a pair of fold-able flats in your clutch to change into at the reception, have a peep-toe, or opt for ballerina flats. The best part about wearing flats to your wedding is that you can dance all night long and never worry about what that sticky substance is on the bottom of your foot.

For brides who are all about comfort, consider wearing your favorite pair of sneakers! Like we said before, no one is going to see your shoes, so choosing a comfortable pair of shoes that you already own is a great way to save money! With this option, you can even incorporate a pair of blue socks for something blue! Just be sure the soles of your shoes are clean, so if you do accidentally step on your gown, you won’t have to worry about leaving a mark.

We love the idea of personalizing your shoes! You may not be able to wear them in public again, but they’ll make an adorable keepsake of your special day. Whether you glitter the bottom of your pumps, write “I Do,” have your fiancé write an adorable note on the soles, or have each of your bridesmaids sign them, you’ll dance better knowing that your shoes are as one-of-a-kind as you are!

 

Your wedding day is going to last hours, so whichever shoes you end up choosing, make sure they’re comfortable! You don’t want to limp into your reception or let your dress drag on the dirty dance floor because you couldn’t last another second in your heels. You may fall in love with a gorgeous pair of Louboutins and that’s fine! Just be sure that your wedding day shoes will last all night and give you Miley Cyrus-level confidence.
