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 and all its fixings to top off this multitiered, fondant-covered stress cake. Even small items, like footwear, can be maximally important. Even if your wedding day outfit covers your shoes, you’ll want a comfy and sturdy pair 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 being enamored with all things feathered and embellished. How high is too high when it comes to heels — and price, for that matter — and should I go for a block, kitten, or ballet flats? Your indecisiveness pre-wedding woes may have climbed higher than the backs of a 100mm pair of stilettos, but rest assured. We’ve only picked the best. 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.
