Looking for where to buy wedding sneakers? Can’t wait to slip your feet into a cute pair of bridal sneakers or tennis shoes on your wedding day? We hear you! Comfort + style, comin’ right up — but first, subscribe, k?
Yes, you can wear tennis shoes to a wedding… but only if you’re the bride! :)
Emma here and I love when brides think outside the regular, um, shoebox. Heels are nice and all, but does everyone wear heels?
The rule of thumb for wedding shoes is: the bride can wear any shoes she wants (provided she doesn’t make these shoe mistakes).
And yes, that includes bridal sneakers!
That’s because when you get down to basics, wedding shoes should be comfortable. Period.
Some brides take comfort to heart and decide to go all in and wear bridal sneakers for the wedding day. If this sounds like you, we say… go for it!
Wedding Sneakers for the Bride
If you’re a bride who hates heels, won’t wear wedges, can’t be bothered by block heels, and certainly won’t fawn over a pair of fashionable flats, we’re here to help. You can absolutely wear wedding sneakers down the aisle and to the reception. Who says you can’t be comfy?!
I always admired the brides who opt for sneakers instead of heels. It’s your wedding — you do you! That’s pretty much our motto around here. And while I’m more of a heels girl myself, but I can completely understand if someone doesn’t want to wear heels and instead wants a non-traditional wedding shoe, like sneakers or tennis shoes, instead.
Lucky for you, you can buy wedding sneakers online that are customized with embellishment to look more like your carefully planned out bridal wear, like pearls, rhinestones, lace, and custom personalized embroidery. You know, so it doesn’t look like you forgot your shoes at home and had to wear a backup pair.
Now is probably a good time to get some nice new wedding kicks, so you’re wearing a shiny pair of shoes with your gown. They should still look polished, even if they are super-duper comfy.
Some of the shoes you’ll find here are glam; others are more neutral and toned down. All of them are awesome.
Some are glittery Keds, others are adorable Kate Spade sneakers, along with some custom Converse shoes and wedding sneakers Etsy has to offer. If you love slip-on Vans, good news: there are plenty of ’em here.
Most brides have a dress that covers their shoes anyway, so who cares what kind of shoes you’re wearing? You may as well choose a pair of sneakers that suits you vs. heels you’ll never wear again, if that’s more your style. :)
Let’s get to the list!
