Comfortable and Stylish Wedding Shoes
So your wedding is coming up and you have no idea what shoes to wear? If you’re someone who typically does not like to wear a heel but want that bridal feel for your wedding shoes, you’re in luck! There are still so many adorable choices out there where you do not have to sacrifice foot misery on your big day.
I will share with you both pairs of shoes I wore on my wedding day. The ceremony shoes and the reception shoes and talk a little bit about each of them.

Keds X Kate Spade New York Triple Glitter Sneakers
These shoes are perfect if you are looking for something comfortable to wear on your big day, as they still give you some height that a heel typically would but they give your feet full support.
They are a partnership with Keds and, boy, did they knock it out of the park!
I ended up wearing these for my wedding reception and they did not disappoint.
The only thing I would make note of is that these are a bit narrow if you have slightly wider feet. While my feet were slightly cramped, they felt 10x better at the end of the night than if I would have had heels on! If you have wide feet like me, I would really recommend ordering them a few months out before your big day so you can try them on and see if they will work for you.
They still offered the support I needed once I switched out my block heels (below) that I wore until the reception dinner was served.

If you do not need a little bit of a height boost, the champion version of the glitter shoes are a great choice: Kate Spade Keds Champion Glitter Shoes
Nina Elenora Block Heels
So while I was super pumped about the Kate Spade glitter shoes, I still wanted to feel “bridal” when it came time for the ceremony.
For those who feel heels are not at all comfortable but REALLY want to wear some on your wedding day, these will be your saving grace.
The brand “Nina” has a number of options that are uber cute and actually pretty darned comfortable.
Out of all of the choices, the Elenora sandal offers the most stability. I purchased these since I knew I’d be walking in the grass and I didn’t want to be sinking in the ground!
Note: It ended up raining on our wedding day, which actually made for a perfect fairy-esque wedding.They were still the perfect choice, though. I have zero regrets.
While offering comfort and support for the balls of your feet, they still have the “heel” vibe that you are looking for.

That chunky base will keep you upright and you need not fear going viral for face-planting when walking down the aisle.
They also will allow you to successfully last from when you are getting ready all through your vows and, realistically, some of your reception. Even if you are not a heel gal by nature!!
You can see how much height they give you below. My amazing photographer caught me mid-laugh, which made for a pretty cool photo.
At the end of the day, these shoes were the perfect choice. Not only was I able to last in them until the reception dinner, when I switched out to the Kate Spade shoes but I also was able to wear them again for the second ceremony we did for my grandma in Pennsylvania.
The really cool thing is that they can be worn again and again, not just on your wedding day! To me, that’s a win!
