If you’re looking for the best winter wedding shoes, you’ve come to the right place. As someone who happens to adore shoes, I’ve combed over this list extra carefully because choosing your bridal shoes is a big decision. You only get one pair of wedding shoes: make sure you choose the right ones! :)
A common mistake that brides make when shopping for winter wedding shoes is… not keeping your options open! There are so many possibilities when you’re selecting footwear — yes, even in the wintertime!
Here are three rules that apply to choosing shoes for winter wedding:
1. The bride does not have to wear white wedding shoes.
Many brides ask: “Does the bride have to wear white wedding shoes?” Here’s the answer: no! The bride does not have to wear white. You should wear any color shoes that you like best.
Maybe you’re like me, eyeing a pair of velvet wine colored wedding heels… these are adorable! Brb, adding to cart.
See? Wear any color of shoes you’d like. Sometimes, a bold shade is just the right pop of color to pair with your gown.
2. You do not need to wear heels.
Wear what YOU find comfortable.
3. Comfortable shoes for a winter wedding do exist
Finding a solid pair of bridal shoes for winter weddings you can walk in or run in is particularly important if you’ll be outside taking photos.
Flurries and running quickly to the car to warm up don’t mix well with ice.
Now that you know a few of the winter footwear rules for brides, let’s explore some stylish options. We spotted these beautiful wedding shoes for winter brides from various retailers including Chinese Laundry, BHLDN, Forever Soles, Pelino Sandals, and Lulu’s. In my opinion, these five places offer the most versatile winter bridal shoes on the market, with styles like mid-heel, thick heel, flat, boot, bootie, mules, pumps, block heels, and more.
