  • While your wedding dress is the sartorial star of your big day, it’s unlikely you’ll ever wear it again. Your wedding shoes, on the other hand, are a whole other story. There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to choosing them (colour, style, comfort and more) so I’ve done all the hard work and found the best ones for you, from timeless pumps to statement sandals.

    Designer wedding shoes

    Low-key brides can’t go wrong with simple classics by Manolo Blahnik or Jimmy Choo, while jaw-dropping heels by Simone Rocha or Prada will have you looking runway ready in no time. A pop of colour is always a welcome touch, as well as being easier to wear again. Look to Jacquemus, Bottega Venetta and Gucci for unexpected shapes and details.

    High street wedding shoes

    Spending a fortune isn’t a necessity either as MANGO, ASOS, Zara and COS have really upped their game this season with snowy shades, pastels and soft metallics dominating the colour palette.

    Comfortable wedding shoes

    Gone are the days of the staid blocky heel, with both affordable high street retailers and luxe fashion brands jazzing up footwear for fashion-savvy brides. There’s all manner of styles for both maximalists and mimimalists, from flats to kitten heels and mules.

    For beach weddings or laid back summer affairs, a chunky flip flop (the shoe of the season) will go surprisingly well with a slip dress or simple design.

    Whether you’re wearing one of the most popular wedding dresses on Pinterest or striking out on your own in a bold coloured gown, these are the best wedding shoes that’ll see you through whatever your outfit choice. And be prepared to make these babies work hard – you’ll want to rewear them for any special occasion, from post-lockdown parties to wedding anniversaries.
