While most of the attention is usually put on the dress, wedding shoes are equally as important. Even if you’ve selected a ball gown that completely covers your feet, an exquisitely made shoe has the power to help you stride with confidence and walk tall down the aisle on your special day.

Picking the best wedding shoes can be a little difficult, especially since so many brands and retailers have so much to offer. You could completely glamorize your look with a pair of crystal-studded Cinderella-esque heels—like those coveted Amina Muaddi pumps. Or keep things elegant and sophisticated with a timeless pair of Manolo Blahnik heels. If sky-high wedding shoes don’t feel right, follow the lead of several modern brides and slip on a beautiful pair of sneakers. From the customizable Converse high-tops to the luxurious Alexander McQueen trainers trimmed in gold, there are several comfortable options to hide under your gown or show off on the dance floor with a mini dress.

No matter what you’re looking for, get ready to say I do to the perfect wedding shoes and browse our edit below.
