If you’re looking for a pair of white block heels, you’ll find them on this list! Make sure you subscribe for the latest updates to your inbox.
As the bride, you get to decide everything, right down to the pair of shoes you’ll wear on your wedding day.
For many, block heels are the preferred choice and it is not surprising: have you seen the latest designer bridal shoes in a chunky heel lately? They’re incredible, particularly the white block heels we’re finding (ok, obsessing over).
A block heel doesn’t just look nice, it is also one of the most comfortable wedding shoes you can wear that gives you an elevated walk down the aisle.
A platform or block style heel offers greater support, stability, and confidence as you’re walking down the aisle, something I think all brides want on their wedding day!
Today we’re covering everything you need to know about white block heels. We’ll show you the latest styles, tell you how much you can expect to spend, and where to get the best bridal designer shoes on the market.
But first things first: what are block heels anyway?
What is a block heel?
You’ve likely seen them before, but if you’re new to the style, a block heel is a shoe with a large, broad base. Block heels offer a unique platform heel with more stability, simply because your heel has more surface area. These shoes offer more stability than a traditional skinny heel, which is helpful for brides getting married on uneven ground (i.e. grass, sand, dirt, etc.) or who struggle with walking on thin heels.
You’ll want to wear block heels if…
• You like the style (I do!)
White block heels are one of the most popular bridal footwear options of the moment, second only to these!
• You have trouble walking in regular heels or don’t do it very often
• You’re getting married outdoors on sand, dirt, uneven terrain, etc.
• You want to show off your incredible sense of style
Why are white block heels popular for brides?
If a bride wants to wear a heel but she’s nervous about walking down the aisle in them, this chunky style offers significantly more support than a stiletto. This way, you can walk comfortably and dance the night away without worry.
White is one of the popular colors of the moment as it not only goes with your dress but really pops!
How much should I spend on wedding shoes?
That’s up to you! On average, most brides spend around $250 on a pair of bridal shoes, but we’ve seen this price anywhere in the range of $150 to $350. For designer bridal shoes, expect to pay more with an average cost of $350 to $500. Some of the most popular designer wedding shoes of the moment (i.e. Loeffler Randall Natalia as one example) cost $495.
Some brides like to save money and buy affordable shoes which typically range anywhere from $30 to $100. There is nothing wrong with spending less on yours, if you don’t want to shell out a bunch of money on bridal footwear.
On the other hand, some brides want to spend as much as it costs to get the perfect pair of wedding heels, and that’s perfectly acceptable, too. Do whatever works best for you. There’s no rule on how much you need to spend.
Now that you know more about this footwear style, let’s talk about what types of white block heels are currently available — and trending. We’re rounding-up 20 of the top chunky heels in white from designer bridal shoes (by Loeffler Randall, Badgley Mischka, Dolce Vita, Sam Edelman, Freya Rose, Betsey Johnson, and more) along with affordable block heels for brides who with a smaller budget (or who simply don’t want to spend as much). These shoes range in price from $32 to $650 for a nice wide range of wedding day footwear for any budget.
You can’t go wrong with these chunky white block heels! I want ALL of the pairs!

Tips for Wearing Block Heels
Before you go, here are a few helpful tips before you buy and wear your heels on your wedding day.
1. Read reviews.
This is good advice before you purchase anything online, but when you’re shoe shopping ratings and reviews are increasingly important. There are few things more annoying than buying shoes online only to try them on and be disappointed in the way they look, feel, or fit. Reviews are your BFF when it comes to seeing what works and what doesn’t for others. Don’t be dissuaded if your favorite shoes have a few negative ratings, either. Find out why: many people drop a star from a review due to a narrow or slightly small fit, so just use this information to size up on your heels.
2. Break them in.
What is the number one rule of wedding day shoes? Breaking them in first! Putting on a pair of brand new shoes the morning of the wedding is one of the biggest wedding shoe mistakes brides make. To combat this, you can wear your block heels around the house for awhile first, just to break them in a bit. In addition, you can use a shoe stretcher like this to give it that worn-in feel without having to do all the legwork. Ha! Over 20,000 people have reviewed this alternate option: shoe stretch spray. I haven’t tried it yet, but it has rave reviews.
3. Add support and cushioning.
Is there ever a more important day in your life when footwear will be so important? You’ll be walking down the aisle, mingling with guests, and on your feet all day. Don’t forget about all of that dancing! Keep your heels feeling their best with:
• Heel Cushion Inserts: important for avoiding blisters on the backs of your feet
• Metatarsal Pads: essential for the ball of your foot
4. Get a pedicure!
If you are wearing open toe, peep toe, or any white block heels, make sure you get a pedicure first! You will love the way your feet look and feel — and you deserve to treat yourself. You’re the bride!
5. Have a backup pair.
Lastly, you can plan ahead for any kind of shoe disaster, but the best thing to always have? A backup pair of flats! Get these from Cinderollies and you’ll feel like you’re walking on a cloud.
