Tired of the same old style? We hear you! We found alternative wedding shoes that aren’t heels to inspire your unique bridal day look. Take a peek + subscribe now for the latest.
You want to wear wedding shoes that aren’t heels, but you’re not necessarily obsessed with flats. We get it!
As the bride, you have the final say on everything: from the menu to music list, desserts to favors, your venue, stationery, and yes, your wedding shoes. If a pair of bridal shoes with a classic heel doesn’t get you excited, why pick them?
You don’t have to wear wedding heels. Heck, you can even go barefoot (or as close to it as possible!)
We beg you NOT to be uncomfortable and make one of the biggest wedding shoe mistakes: picking a pair of heels just because you THINK you have to wear them.
You can wear a pair of any kind of shoes you like best. In fact, we highly encourage you to choose a pair of shoes that aren’t heels if you’re not comfortable wearing them (or you simply don’t like them). Trying to walk down the aisle in an ill-fitting, too-high heel isn’t fun for anyone.
From wedges to flats, booties to slip-on shoes, we’re sharing comfortable wedding shoes that aren’t heels to inspire your bridal day style.
Let’s get to it: shoe shopping is always a fun activity. ;) Enjoy!
