If you’re really not a heels kind of girl then there’s probably no point struggling with a pair on your big day. Even if you are, you might want to kick them off and slip into something more comfortable for the party.These lovely silver “Henrietta” ballet pumps, £75 from French Sole are just the ticket. They have slim rubber soles for stability, are cut low for a bit of extra toe cleavage and extremely comfortable. They’d look great with a floor length ballerina style tulle skirt and silver accents. I wouldn’t advise wearing pumps with a shorter dress unless you are blessed with exceptionally slim calves and ankles!
I agree with Kelly over at sister site The Bag Lady, sometimes all a girl wants is a bit of sparkle. Anywho, I spotted these bling-tastic bridal shoes for only £90 on the Faith website. On a day to day basis I probably wouldn’t be caught dead wearing something so girly/strappy/diamante encrusted, but on your wedding day with the right frock I’d be sorely tempted to bust them out.
Behold the perfect wedding shoe! As sod’s law dictates, it’s only available Stateside but surely it’s worth the shipping. White satin, crystal detail on the peep-toe, extra cushioning and a 3.5inch heel. The best bit? The deep blue sole, reminiscent of those mythical blue soled wedding Louboutins.
Pretty peep toe pumps might just be on your wish list for a summer wedding and these should suit any style of dress, short or long. the satin uppers and closed heel keep them looking elegant whilst the rose detailing gives some much needed individuality to the shoe. They’re £325 at Zappos.
These shoes might not be quite right to go with your bridal gown but I think they’d look super cute paired up with a bridesmaid’s red dress though Shoewawa editor Amber thinks they’d look equally great teamed with dark jeans. They’re £112 at Asos.

With it’s cute bow, soupcon of toe cleavage and dainty 4inch heel these ivory heels from Littlewoods would make a great bridal shoe – and the best part is they are a mere £30! That means you can pose for photographs in the soggy ground and not be worrying about trashing them.
With sale season in full swing, I’ve got my eye on some serious bargains. Take these ivory satin courts with ruched uppers and a smattering of diamantes, they’re just £8. £8! Find them at Barratts.
Here’s something you don’t see every day – a knee high wedding boot! Not a bad idea really – kinky boots teamed with a slinky dress will keep you warm, give your ankles support, and will look rather good when the frock comes off on the wedding night. Ahem.
For the fashionista bride, check out these gorgeous Sienna ankle boots, £89.99 from The Bridalwear Company in ivory or white satin with a killer 8.4cm stiletto heel. They’d look equally fantastic with a full skirted frock or something slinky.
Think about it – if the ceremony’s at around 1pm then chances are you’ll be spending around 12 hours on your feet on the day of your wedding. Ouch! Blisters and burning pain are not a good look. Which is why I love Filippa Scotts’s bridal shoes. Made from the finest Italian leather and duchess satin, they have a soothing 4mm of padding on the insole meaning you’ll look fabulous while staying comfortable. This style is the “Jessica”, an elegant slingback with a 4 inch and a sexy bit of toe-cleavage.
I love the simplicity of this duchesse silk satin shoe with its rounded toe and pretty strip of Swarovski crystals. I think it would work best with 20s style gowns or contemporary styles that pick up on the crystal detailing.

The bridal collection at Freya Rose may be small but these Aida shoes are perfectly formed with details I love to see – a secure cross over strap with pearl button detail, a snug heel, peep toes and a pretty detachable crystal flower all for £395.
I still swing between a love of expensive shoes and the thought that buying a pair of white shoes might just be a big waste of money, especially if no one even sees them! The key might be to go for a budget pair, especially if you snap up these courts. They have an on-trend vintage heel with the rounded toe and chunky heel and cost just £25. The black version would be great if your bridesmaids are going for a stylish black dresses. Get both pairs here.
