A dress may steal the show, but a pair of white wedding shoes really seals the deal for a bridal ensemble. If you’re a shoe fanatic, we’re sure you’ve already put together a list of shoe options for the big day and the festivities leading up to it. However, if you haven’t chosen a pair of heels (or flats!) Yet, then there are a few things to consider.
First of all, the heel height. If you’re used to wearing high heels and appreciate the extra lift, then the sky is the limit. But if you usually go for flats or a low block heel, consider a mid-length length so it doesn’t hurt at the end of the night. Another design detail to consider is the overall silhouette. Do you want to wear pumps? Maybe an ankle strap sandal? Or heels? If you are unsure, refer to the hem and aesthetic of your dress. Your wedding dress can certainly determine the type of shoes you should wear. We also know that finding the right accessory to complete 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.

What to look for when buying white wedding shoes
Now that you have some inspiration and are able to match your personal style with the perfect bridal shoe, it’s time to consider a few logistical aspects. While it might not be as glamorous, the last thing you want to worry about is your stiletto heels digging into the grass (or being so uncomfortable that you end up walking barefoot). So, before you click “add to cart” on these beauties, be sure to think about all aspects of your big day. Is your wedding indoors or will you have to walk through grass or gravel? Opt for apartments if you are going to be walking (or dancing) on rough terrain. Still want height? Opt for square heels or wedges. Most importantly, comfort is really the key if you want to make the most of your day and stay present, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style! Break your heels before the wedding day to ensure optimal comfort. But hey, wearing them to your bridal shower, engagement party, or even dinner with your SO just means you can flaunt that dizziness even more!
If you are having a seaside or garden wedding, be sure to choose shoes suitable for sand and grass, such as block heels or flats. For more formal affairs, high heels are always a timeless choice.
Yes, but it depends on the style and heel height. For brides looking for added comfort and support, kitten or block heel pumps will take you comfortably from the aisle to the dance floor.
Absolutely not! If you are not convinced to wear white shoes, bridal shoes come in a range of sophisticated and striking colors and shades.
