The Marie Claire round-up of stylish designer wedding shoes...

Wedding shoes can notoriously be hard to find.

Whether you're looking for a traditional pair or a modern offering, any style you step into is guaranteed to make an impact down the aisle and is one of the biggest bridal decisions you're going to make.

Not sure where to start? We're here to point you in the right direction.

There are so many fabulous pairs of designer wedding shoes to choose from, and with that in mind, we've scoured the stores to bring you an edit of the very best heels and courts.

We'll cover everything from the bespoke services on offer at Jimmy Choo, to the slick city bridal buys available by Christian Louboutin.

Designer wedding shoes come in so many different styles. We've seen everything from strappy sandals with super-skinny stilettos to fashion-forward courts cut in an asymmetric shape.

Want to channel Sarah Jessica Parker's Sex And The City alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw on your big day? Of course you do and there's only real one name you can consider: Manolo Blahnik. Already known for crafting seriously decadent footwear, the Spaniard's bridal line is just as ornate. Does this surprise you? No, us neither. Prices are available on request.

Charlotte Olympica has one of the largest collections for brides and a glitzy ceremony is the perfect chance to step out in a pair of bejewelled peep-toes.

Other brands that we love when it comes to all-out glamour include Giuseppe Zanotti, Sergio Rossi and new kids on the block Aquazzura.

We've never made a secret of our love for Oscar De La Renta's romantic gowns, but did you know they also stock the most exquisite wedding shoes? The designer's range is well worth a look.
