12 Bridal Shoes You’ll Actually Like

Anyone who’s ever gotten married will be quick to tell you the hunt for bridal shoes is not an easy one. Type “bridal shoes” into anything and you’ll likely end up with a selection of styles that you would never dream of wearing normally – let alone on one of the biggest (and most fashionably planned) days of your life! Clunky toes, clunky heels, shocking 80’s style ornamentation… And to make matters worse this is all happening in bright shiny WHITE no less – eek!

I don’t know why brands make wedding shoes this way, however when you look at the prices of coveted brands such as Giuseppe Zanotti, Jimmy Choo, Vera Wang and other high end designers ($1500 for wedding shoes anyone?) it’s obvious why people resort to buying them. It’s enough to put you off getting married. Well, almost.

For when you’ve blown the budget. Louboutin approx $1300 from Barneys

    Some gorgeous styles. Unfortunately I wore kitten heels when I wanted strappy stilettos but I didn’t want to tower over hubby to be.

    why would you pay so much for a shoe when your dress may cover it

    The Nine West for $139.95 I think is a good price.

    Since we were getting married outside, I avoided high spiky heels, so I didn’t sink.

    I wore super sparkly silver high heeled sandals. My dream shoes!

  • Reply amanda6393 Tuesday 9th September, 2014 at 12:47 pm

    These all look lovely but how would your feet be feeling at the end of the day? I’d rather be comfortable thanks!
