Wedding sandals—once reserved for destination weddings and outdoor venues—are our little secret when it comes to finding wedding shoes that you can re-wear after the big day is over. While it's true that specific sandal styles (flat wedding sandals, for example) tend to be more casual than a closed-toe pump, there are plenty of embellished and heeled sandal options that would be appropriate for fancier dress codes. And the best part? The slightly more laid-back look of wedding sandals has its perks, because a more casual style leaves room for flexibility when it comes to actually wearing the shoes again after your wedding day. So whether you're getting married on the beach and need a pair of sandals you can easily slip on and off, or you're looking to show off your fresh pedicure in a stylish pair of heeled sandals, we've got you covered!

Here are the wedding sandals you'll want to wear again and again after your big day.
