Good morning! I was wondering if you guys would share the shoes you wore or plan to wear under your gown. I cant seem to fully decide what I definitely want . My dress is floor length and lace with subtle sequencing. I love the lace sneakers that david bridal has for sale, but i bc am not 100% on them and i also have been indecisive on wearing a dress shoe for the ceremony/ photos. I know for comfort i def want a pair of “ sneakers” even if they still say no dancing. I just dont want to loook tacky by picking the “wrong” pairs. I am in love with all the photos ive seen with brides wearing non traditional shoes though! Ugh theyre adorable! I dont know what “ toe shape” id like or if i would want open or close toe if i did do a dress shoe, i think im debating so much because my dress is to the floor but I honestly don’t know how many times your shoes will actually show ( without holding up the dress) lol ...clearly i dont wear dresses often at all lol



What are you guys wearing? Or what did you wear?

    Whenever possible daughter lives in Converse, so choosing her "wedding shoes" was pretty easy.... She picked a pair in the primary wedding color and we had them customized with her new name and wedding date at a local t-shirt shop that does customizations. Hers was a fairly formal wedding, and her dress was a full-skirted a-line lace ballgown. Like you suggested, the only time her shoes showed was when she hiked up her dress for stairs or to walk quickly from one location to another during photos before the ceremony. She was happy and very comfortable all day -- and, bonus, she wore the heck out of that pair of shoes for months following the wedding! Good luck!

    I plan on bridal “tennis” shoes. I’m going for comfort. Was thinking of getting a pretty pair of flats for the ceremony...

    I wore these flats. The weren't super visible but they peaked out once in a while as I walked and we got this photo.

    I love the idea of bridal sneakers for the comfort level but your posture and walk is much better in a heel so I plan to do an open toed chunky heel. It has to be chunky because of the slats on the deck where our ceremony is held.

    Hi Kelly,
    We’re having a minimony in the beach so I’ll be wearing barefoot sandals during the ceremony and embellished sandals after.

    My normal go-to dress shoes are usually Chinese Laundry wedges. I have them in all colors and wear them for 12 hours at conferences with ease.


    When we decided our outside ceremony, I totally knew wedges would be what we would need.
    Scored these for less than $30 and wore them all day and night.

    All my girls wore wedges too. I strongly dislike barefoot bridal party, it's a pet peeve when girls have to take off their shoes at formal events.
    I simply asked my photographer not to snap a photo of them when my dress was on the hanger. You know that picture? Haha.
    Also be sure to get your shoes early, take them to your fittings so the alterations are perfect to your height. And break them in! Just like any new heel or dress shoe be to wear them around the house so you can make it thru the night.

    I wore these shoes to our minimony in August (Sorry for the goofy picture, it's the best one I can find of my shoes and we were 6 feet apart for pictures with guests). I'm planning to rewear them next year for our bigger wedding as well. Obviously people saw them this year as my dress was short but in my actual wedding dress next year I don't think they will be seen. They're not as "fancy" or "bridal" as some of the other shoes I've seen and loved the look of, but they sure are comfortable! Shoe ideas 12

    Unless your dress is short, a floor length dress will hide your shoes. Also, make sure the heel height is the same throughout. Meaning don't get the dress altered for 2 inch heels snd change into flats for the reception because you will trip.


    Any shoes you love will be great. Make sure they're comfy for 5+ hours. Try them on in store before purchasing and break them in around the house. Shoes should never hurt.

    I'm wearing these heels for the ceremony. I think I'm going to buy a similar pair of kitten heels for the reception. I told my fiancé that he'll have to help me change into my "play shoes" after the ceremony lol.
