If comfort is your number one priority when it comes to walking down the aisle (and kickin’ it on the dance floor), you’re probably not even considering those four-inch stilettos. Flats are a comfy alternative, but wedges are where it’s at if you still want a little extra height. Luckily, our Fashion Editor has hand-picked 15 of her favorites that are ALL under $150. You just can’t beat that price!
You’ve decided on a destination wedding and more specifically on a beach in paradise. Congratulations!
Once you’ve decided on the resort and the dress, it’s time to begin focusing on the details. From destination brides, we often get the question: “What kind of shoes should I wear for my beach wedding?”
For the bride, who has her heart set on the super strappy, high heel sandals, you are probably not going to like what we have to say. If your “aisle” is sand, then it’s wise to avoid heels. This is the moment you have been waiting for – your true love is standing by the wedding canopy with his eyes glued on you, the people, who mean the world to you are sitting in chairs, heads crooked to get a look at you; the last thing you want is to have issues making it down the aisle. Right?
You have several alternatives:
- Go barefoot. Embrace the breezy, carefree, beach wedding vibe.
- Wear barefoot sandals. These are extremely popular and there are tons of shops on Etsy.com that sell all different styles of this concept.

- Wear flats. There are some gorgeous flat sandals out there!
- Ask your wedding specialist if your resort offers a “near-beach” alternative, like a gazebo or a sky terrace overlooking the beach. This way you can walk comfortably in your dream heels.

- If you are not in love with any of these options, consider wearing something comfortable for the ceremony and then don your heels for your formal photos.
See, there’s an option for every destination bride. What shoes will you be wearing at your destination wedding?
Many couples choose to have a patriotic wedding that coincides with 4th of July, but that doesn’t mean your color palette has to resemble Yankee Doodle Dandy or Uncle Sam. Instead, show your love for America with subtle pops of red, white or blue! Here’s our salute to bridal shoes:
Would you rather be comfortable as you walk down the aisle? If your primped and pampered toes can agree, choose these firecracker red ballet flats.

Choosing my wedding shoes was a very important process during wedding planning. Color, heel height, and designer brand all come into play in a bride’s decision making. I fell in love with Badgley Mischka’s Randee shoe when I first saw them on a bridal website years ago. I loved them because I knew after the wedding, I would be able to wear the shoes again. Not only were they comfortable but also finished off my overall bridal look. They are available in an assortment of colors as well!
