The perfect pair of shoes for your wedding day

While most brides will wear a white wedding dress or suit and grooms will don a classic tuxedo or suit, you can add some color, as well as your personality, to your wedding-day look with a great pair of shoes. No matter what style you choose, make sure they’re comfortable because you’ll be standing and dancing in them all night long. To break them in, wear them around the house in the weeks leading up to the wedding and score the soles to avoid any slips and falls on your big day. We’ve rounded up several styles you may want to slip on:


Make your shoes your something blue with these navy satin pumps by Badgley Mischka. The peep-toe front is adorned with an opulent broach. Available in seven colors, $215,



These pale pink pumps have a ¾-inch platform and a 4-inch heel. The decorative satin beaded flower applique adds a modern feminine detail. Available in five colors, $99.95,


Can’t decide on just one color? The Licorice Too pumps by Kate Spade are a mix of multi-colored and gold metallic glitter. $350,


Lela Rose’s Unforgettable Moments collection features 15 designs in white or ivory which can be dyed one of 64 custom colors. Brides are sure to find a shoe that fits as well as the perfect hue.
